    Pros

    Big clients and work from home flexibility

    Cons

    Very siloed, so there's a lack of a larger community. There are large agency protocols that make it difficult gaining experience on other accounts.

    Pros

    Amazing company with endless opportunities. Big name clients. The opportunity to be a part of ground breaking and award-winning work.

    No different than others in the industry. Occasional long hours, can be stressful, but never a boring day.

    Keep moving it forward.

    I worked at Momentum Worldwide full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with great brands on high-profile projects. The people are nice and there is a sense of community.

    Cons

    The workload is overwhelming, you cannot catch up no matter how many hours you put in because teams are short staffed. There is also lots of office politics, which creates an atmosphere of looking out for yourself instead of working together. The benefits are not very good and the salaries (and raises) are low, even by agency standards.

    Advice to Management

    Foster a community of collaboration across departments. Increase junior salaries and make sure teams are staffed with enough senior leadership.

    Amazing people that are fun to work with
    Work/life balance is a true priority

    Long hours when needed (typical in industry)

    I worked at Momentum Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great, diverse client list: From CPG to electronics to entertainment to beverages
    - Wide variety of work: Shopper marketing to digital to events to on/off-premise to TV
    - So much vacation time (really miss that actually)
    - Required employee training seminars
    - Work exchange program with offices abroad
    - Lots of people all at different points in their career path
    - Really cater to the creative side of the staff
    - Creatives can work on a number of different clients or projects
    - Lots of resources for employees
    - Lots of benefits

    Cons

    - Great client list but you're often working on menial portions of their business
    - The opportunity for growth appears greater than it is in reality
    - Behemoth of an agency company and not very nimble to market changes/needs
    - Account people were treated like a limitless resource, disposable
    - Nepotism
    - Clients first, people second
    - Culture of order takers
    - Low pay

    Pros

    Great folks that aren't afraid to work hard and get the best ideas

    Cons

    Do not put yourself through the torture Verizon account, run in the other direction. You won't get anything of note done. The level of kowtowing that senior management does for them is borderline asinine.
