    Pros

    Good location in the heart of downtown.

    Cons

    The work is boring and account led. As a project manager, you can have a good work life balance though. Dogs in the office are nice at times. It's a boys club, but they're trying to change - just not fast enough. It's hard to advance or get a raise when everything is filtered through a holding company. There are good opportunities as a junior. The leads usually don't do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in good (and proven) leads from other agencies.

    Pros

    Great culture. The people are truly kind and make you feel like a human first. It's a place where you can push as hard as you want to make things happen and there is plenty of open runway.

    Cons

    The company reacts to revenue on a weekly basis, so long term planning and stability can be hard to live under.

    I worked at POSSIBLE (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part was the atmosphere. A fully stocked kitchen, free beer, dogs, a beautiful office and location with a great park behind it. Hammocks, food trucks, a free gym. The perks were plentiful.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work load was crazy and it felt like your supervisors weren't working. They'd just pile it on you and hang out. It was frustrating at times.

    Advice to Management

    I think they need to weed out some senior level people who don't hold their weight and just make the people under them miserable.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Unlimited drinks, snacks. Great legacy. Award winning creative work.
    Great learning and development focus, but not sure will sustain...

    Cons

    - Declined culture due to acquisition from the big bro agency.
    - You will be amazed there are way too many relatives work in this company- 'conflicts of interest' policy not applies here at all.
    - They used to be very advanced in the industry, but not any more. If stay here for too long, you are out of options to go elsewhere.

    Pros

    Everyone is invested in each other at POSSIBLE. We trust each other to contribute our best work and continuously go above and beyond what is expected of us. The work is fun and challenging but it's my team that makes it all worth it. We are encouraged to take risks and push ourselves. I'm very proud to be working for POSSIBLE in the New York office.

    Cons

    It's hard to keep up with how quickly things change but it's clear that culture remains a top priority and the sky is the limit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to what the team needs to grow.

    I have been working at POSSIBLE full-time

    Pros

    - Great, hardworking folks.
    - Internal recognition awards that let's you applaud your peers for their hardwork.
    - If you're hungry (literally), there's lots of free food and snacks
    - But, if you're hungry (metaphorically), there's not much left to throw yourself into creatively or culturally without getting shut out.

    Cons

    - Lack of effective leadership.
    - Culture is in a slow decline.
    - Loss of several major accounts.
    - Very few new business wins.
    - No investment in growing people outside of the "inner circle" of folks.

    Advice to Management

    - Listen more than you talk.
    - Don't just talk the talk, walk the walk.
    - Learn and practice mindfulness and empathy.
    - Trust and empower your people.
    - Stop the cycle of fear.
    - Give us something to hope and aim for as a team.

    Pros

    There are many wonderful, brilliant people in the trenches here, the people are what make this place worth anybody's time.

    The snacks are great- lots of delicious options are well stocked.

    Office manager is ah-mazing.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency.

    Total boys club (not all guys, just a select group of senior leaders and a few very-junior guys) - there's a slice of misogyny mixed in and a dash of nepotism to round it out.

    Advice to Management

    We've ALL heard some variation of: "Think about the optics" now's your chance to do just that
    Be honest: it's incredibly frustrating to find out we lost a client "through the grapevine" - please just tell us
    The lack of maturity is astounding. Please realize that it's time to grow up
