    I worked at Posner Advertising full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I appreciate the fact that they gave me the opportunity to perform my job to the best of my ability with the freedom to do it the way I preferred.

    Cons

    I found some aspects of the position to have too much pettiness when it came to the execution of tasks and the overall attitude of a direct supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries!

    Pros

    It's a paycheck if you're unemployed. They are based in the Flatiron District, of course you won't be allowed out of the office to enjoy it but it's out there. (wait, pro or con?)

    Cons

    Abusive misogynists living in the dark ages who are also brothers are running their dad's company into the ground. Actually, it's in the ground already so I guess deeper into the crust of the earth, deep into the mantle and headed for the core of the earth. This bass ackwards 'agency' once was on the top of the Real Estate marketing arena fell behind when people started using email, websites and stuff like the Internet to communicate.

    When I worked there, they had three clients, and were desperately trying to move forward as a relevant agency. They managed to go through 13 digital marketing 'experts' in eight years, including hiring them in tandem so that they would go after each other. There are no women in management, and good luck being a woman with a child in the office. I was threatened to be fired for wanting to work from home because my son's babysitter was sick. It's 2016, grown women who do digital marketing can work from home and should be allowed to, especially if they are single parents. Wow. I was grossly discriminated against and made 25% less than my male counterpart doing the same job in my department. When I approached them about this, more threats of firing and deflecting. Way to discriminate guys!

    I've been in this industry a long time, never have I met two men with less integrity. I'm saying this about two men in advertising so.. that's pretty low, ey?

    Advice to Management

    Retire.

    Pros

    I've learned a lot at Posner and enjoy the responsibility that I am trusted with handling. As a boutique agency, we get an opportunity to learn and immerse ourselves in every aspect of marketing. I like not being pigeon holed with just one set of responsibilities. It's more interesting to multi-task.

    Cons

    The clients are typically very entrepreneural and that means that we deal with people who seem to be really vested in everything we do but that also puts more pressure on us to perform and deliver measurable results. I think if we worked with bigger brands, our clients would have more discipline.

    Advice to Management

    More flexible summer hours.

    Pros

    Well, its a paycheck...not much else. I accepted the job when I first came to the city but I wish I'd been more choosy as the company itself is small and stuck in the dark ages with everything from thinking to technology. Who still uses triplicate copies and dot matrix printers to send insertion orders?!

    Cons

    Small company, not much room for growth, uninspired upper management

    Advice to Management

    Get up to date with the current media trends. What worked 20 years ago does not work now. As a young professional, it would have been nice to see some sort of enthusiasm for the business.

    Pros

    That they went under and the two brothers no longer control the company.

    Cons

    THEY. DON'T. LISTEN. EVER. SHAME.

    Advice to Management

    hopeless

    Pros

    Nothing besides a 50+ year history...

    Cons

    Treat you like garbage. Yell, curse and throw things like children. They'll say anything to get a sale and then make you execute things you can't deliver. They have lied to clients and then sent us out to keep the lie going even after we expressed it was unethical. I'm not kidding, making this up nor am I scorned.

    Advice to Management

    Retire and move to Florida, please! You'll make the advertising world better overnight.

    Pros

    • Pay check

    • Near most trains and buses.

    • Plenty of eateries.

    • An amazing Creative Director who nurtures and supports creative staff.

    Cons

    • Poor upper management leadership.

    • With upper management allowing inappropriate behavior by both long time employees and clients, on too many occasions it created a volatile environment.

    • Upper management not outlining clear and concise objectives coupled with them constantly changing their minds. This mind set and lack of focus has created too many non-productive outcomes.

    • Poor management with their relationships in regards to freelance employees, vendors and publications.

    • Not utilizing their staffs strengths. Projects that could of been handled in-house were outsourced which created resentment and an overall waste of funds.

    • Not listening to staff in regards to decision making with matters of procedure. This mind set caused so much wasted man hours and money.

    • Terrible at following through with promises.

    Advice to Management

    Treat those better than you would treat yourself.
