    Pros

    - Smartest people I’ve ever worked with
    - competitive salary and above average benefits

    Cons

    Like any agency, work is dependent on clients

    I have been working at Moxie full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked for Moxie for a few months now and from what I can tell there is a great company culture here. There are several opportunities for growth and development and mobility within the entire Publicis Groupe network. The pay is competitive and the health and benefits package is the best I've had in my working career. Tons of vacation and flex days and holidays off. There is a lot of free food around the office, dogs at work and fun company events.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours can get long depending on the client you're working on or the project but that's to be expected in an agency setting.

    I have been working at Moxie full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love the working environment here -- fun and spirited yet also ambitious and focused. It's also very inclusive, so you get to work with people from a diverse array of backgrounds. It's also an actively LGBTQ-friendly and supportive agency (all the way up to the holding company level). Benefits and perks are great: awesome medical/dental/vision/PTO, etc. plus other "non-standard" offerings like a dog-friendly campus, Free Lunch Friday, on-site chiro once a week, etc.

    Cons

    The day-to-day experience here, in terms of hours, collaboration, autonomy, etc., isn't always consistent across departments/disciplines, mostly because the nature of the work (or leadership style) varies. For me, there are light weeks where I can easily manage what's going on and other times where I am slammed. But that's more about the dept. I am in than the agency itself. If you're in a field/career where long hours are the standard, Moxie may either below or above that but, more often than not, you'll spend those hours working with amazing people who are passionate about what they do.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, keep doing what you're doing: Continue looking for opportunities to make our culture even more engaging and supportive (e.g., Atlanta United outing, the expanded benefits you just introduced for new parents, on-site events that give us a chance to see each other's work, etc.).

    I have been working at Moxie full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong management for analytical and tech teams. Recognizeable client portfolio. Decent work product. Good benefits. Support for employee growth through parent agency resources. Lots of free food.

    Cons

    Company has recently made some changes that have forced out some and caused many more to leave. Direction seems neither informed nor sustainable by actual revenue.

    The only constant is organizational politics that ensure some teams thrive while others are hobbled by a lack of resources.

    Experiences at the company can vary greatly based on who you work for.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct a detailed audit of company revenues. Understand where the profits are coming from and resource accordingly. Make a concerted effort to promote open dialogue between disciplines.

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

    Pros

    Free beer.
    Fratatasic Executives.
    Tons of expendable income for swag with company logo.

    Cons

    In the last six months, Moxie has lost accounts and seen reduction in scope for others. It is a result of a toxic political atmosphere where decisions are made based on favoritism not the demands of the accounts.

    Executives regularly distort the truth to intimidate lower level employees into toeing the company line.

    Advice to Management

    Get real. This isn’t a frat, it’s a business. You might want to run it like one.

    - Training programs for every level employee
