    I worked at Mullen full-time

    Pros

    Interesting, fairly well-paid work. Genuine coworkers.

    Cons

    The longer I was there, the less ethical it became in terms of client roster.

    Advice to Management

    When people are competing with each other over who's gone without sleep the longest, you're killing your employees. Hope they've at least improved their health plan.

    I worked at Mullen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, nice creative atmosphere, meals if work is late.

    Cons

    Lots of old blood that makes everything very slow to change and hurts growth. Feels old fashion for a Ad agency. I worked there full time for many years, since I have left, I have been back for freelance several times and it is hard to see the place all shelled out , many open desks, whole rooms that used to have lots of interesting people working are empty now. felt like a frogboil to me.

    Advice to Management

    dunno, try and mix up the hierarchy with new people .....

    Pros

    You produce great work. Wonderful people throughout the company. A culture of winning. Great if you are a self starter.

    Cons

    Demanding and long hours. 60–70 per week. Not always efficiently run. Sometimes work for the sake of work. But worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat women more equally RE pay.
