    I have been working at Quigley-Simpson full-time

    Pros

    Diverse and inclusive company.

    Genuine and caring leadership.

    Great brands to work on.

    Quigley-Simpson is very well-respected in the ad industry by clients and even competitors.

    Good opportunities to get ahead especially on the challenging accounts.

    Salary is good.

    The company has great parties, particularly the Holiday party and the Summer party at the beach.

    Monthly meetings are informative.

    Cons

    Long hours due to client pressures.

    Advice to Management

    Let’s form an active mentorship program, especially for entry level staff, and help them integrate into the world of advertising and into the company.

    Pros

    Great clients and coworkers that make going into work exciting.

    Cons

    Upper management and leadership make the work environment unenjoyable and somewhat toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Try being honest with your employees. Most do not trust leadership anymore which is unfortunate.

    I have been working at Quigley-Simpson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They'll pay you well and vendors give you perks.

    Cons

    Almost everything. Don't trust the job description you are applying for. It is most likely 100% the opposite of what you'll actually be doing here. This agency needs to evolve to 2019 and get out of practices that are 5+ years old.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees. Give benefits that make the day better. Get real coffee. Actually trust your employees.

    Pros

    Smart people, decent pay. Great view, decent clients

    Cons

    Long hours. Very low tech. PCs that don’t work. Hours of updates make everyone work longer hours. No laptops or work from home.

    Pros

    Food, there is occasional bagels.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance. Management only cared about themselves. Highest turnover I've seen at a agency. Other agencies a lot better, don't apply here.

    Pros

    Quigley Simpson really does care about their employees and their customers. They really seem to do their very best to offer great services and take care of everyone.

    Cons

    Strange working environment, not a lot of transparency and a lot of employees afraid of upper mangement.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try and figure out how to support employees better by having a more open policy for communication. Also, after 9:00 p.m. you shouldn't be berated because you are not answering e-mails.....not cool.

    Pros

    Vendor relationships on the media side for perks. We had some good leaders but they could not take it anymore.

    Cons

    The exec level has no clue how to manage and train. They think so highly of themselves and don’t give credit where due. Recently had some great people leave due to management and morale. This was the second place I worked at and it was much more political.

    Advice to Management

    There should be new management. The current team has not performed.

    Pros

    A well balanced agency who are always looking to invest in hard working, passionate and bright individuals. The atmosphere is stable due to the savvy investments made by the owners and CFO. Great clients! Great people!

    Cons

    Projects came come down last minute similar to all ad agencies. Be prepared to move on a dime. If you step up, you'll be recognized and rewarded.
