    I have been working at Moore & Scarry Advertising full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked for Moore and Scarry for almost 9 months and couldn't have better things to say about this company. If you are a self starter that doesn't do micro-managing, then this company is for you. There are a ton of opportunities to climb the ladder as long as you are willing to work for it. It is a fast growing company so there are ample opportunities for you to carve out your perfect position. The atmosphere is fast paced where no two days are the same, but hard work doesn't go unnoticed. I started as an AC with little experience and have since risen through the ranks thanks to the help of all of my teammates.

    Cons

    The job is difficult, but if you are a self starter that wants to start a career in advertising, this is the right place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO. Drink beer while you work on Fridays.

    Cons

    LONG hours. Over worked and WAY under paid. Workload is far too much for one person to handle without wanting to drive off a bridge at the end of the day. Human resources and department managers keep nothing private and are extremely unprofessional. Work environment feels like a frat/sorority house - if you aren't best friends with a manager, coworkers will team up on you and make your work 10x harder than it needs to be. Company has extremely high turnover, constantly people coming and going. Favoritism is VERY apparent in all departments. Work produced is recycled ideas from other jobs. Teams take 2+ hour lunches and leave underdogs to do all the work. Never positive reinforcement, they only tell you constantly what you could do better.

    Advice to Management

    Try to remember that you are a business professional and not a high schooler.

    I worked at Moore & Scarry Advertising full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Casual Dress
    Beer Fridays
    Overall the people you will actually interact with will be decent human beings just trying to do a job.
    You'll learn a lot from your co-workers and it's a great resume builder.

    Cons

    Management is awful, rude, disrespectful, and pretty unintelligent.
    If you don't pucker up and brown nose to management you'll be publicly disrespected.
    It's basically high school. (Jocks and mean girls = management and their minions)
    Save your sanity, the minimal pay is not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat people with respect, pay people adequately, and GET OVER YOURSELF.

    I have been working at Moore & Scarry Advertising full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management treats their staff with respect. Fast paced environment keeps you always on your toes and you're never bored. Great commission structure for the Account Service team. All members of the staff get along and work well together to get things done. The monthly team building days in the office are highlights each month.

    Cons

    Some of the client demands and feedback are tough to not take personally. The company as a whole helps walk you through how to work through these demands which is helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up with the fun team building days. We all enjoy them!

    Pros

    Fridays. The boss isn't here most of the time.
    Casual dress code.

    Cons

    Where to begin? The pay is subpar. The management is awful. The environment is toxic. And your fed to believe that beer Fridays are what make the culture great! You made to feel that working after hours is normal when it shouldn't be. Advice to management is treat your employees with dignity and respect.

    Great Opportunity, Laid back environment and dress code, Wonderful people, Good benefits and 401k package, Self Managed PTO, Interesting and creative projects

    Cons

    Needs a soda vending machine!

    Advice to Management

    Each of the C&K managers along with the owners treat their employees like family! They value and appreciate their hard work! I dont know many companies that would give Self Managed PTO! It shows they put their confidence and trust in us to make decisions and respect our Work/life balance! I couldn't be more proud to work here and am very excited for all the years to come! Keep up the great work
