    Review bonus and salary policies of your competitors. Not just other agencies as your primary competition is in-house PR teams.

    Pros

    Some of the most creative staff in the industry.

    Cons

    Creatives don't always listen to Account feedback. It feels like a set up as when you go see the client they make the same comments. Creatives get discouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring sub par SrVPs. Run workshops so account and creative learn to be on the same page during client mtgs.
