    Pros

    Great products, artistic campaigns, creative co-workers with diverse global backgrounds

    Cons

    The brand is fueled by creativity however promotions for creative type roles are few and far between. Plus it takes a court case worth of proof to try and get any type of increase. People take on additional work and don't get reward until years later.

    Pros

    A lot of very intelligent and capable employees, fast paced growing environment

    Cons

    Corporate system with a lot of BS politics, does not promote fairly and often people get completely stuck when they have been going above and beyond. Certain divisions recognized and promoted over others.
