    Horrible Work Environment

    May 11, 2021 - Client Service Representative in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - honestly, none. There is little incentive to working as runner, because there is zero upward mobility. They just want you to bring their clients champagne till 3am so their viagra ad can be better, even though they’d already finished work on the ad.

    Cons

    - toxic work environment - sexual harassment - overworked - underpaid - I have trauma I’m still working through thanks to Method/CO3 - We’d be wasting our time early into the morning servicing clients that didn’t need to be there. They were just trying to party; all work has been finished. This led to no sleep which led to resentment and low job satisfaction.
