    I have been working at R/GA full-time

    Pros

    Great people who are interesting and interested in each other's work. Generous leave for new parents. Great place to learn if you land on a good team.

    Cons

    Mid-level management is horrible. Can't speak too much about exec team but toxic work environment facilitated by people turning a blind eye to bullying and aggressive behavior. Moving between teams is practically impossible so growing here is not in your cards. HR will not help you. No work life balance and hard hours.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees or more people will leave.

    Nice office. Smart people. Lots of connections.

    The people, the flexibility, the clients, the collaborative nature from everyone no matter rank

    Production is the least valued department at R/GA. It takes a lot of time and effort to achieve higher compensation.

    The internship paid well and they program was well put together. I also liked the summer presentations and speaker series.

    Pros

    The people are (for the most part) great. The benefits are good, but be prepared to work all hours and days.

    Cons

    A few bad eggs that enjoy spreading rumors and gossiping. Leads to a bit of toxicity. No such thing as work life balance unless you’re on leadership.

    Advice to Management

    See your employees as people - and not just the Brazilian mafia. All of them. Seeing cliques with leadership leads to less morale. Train your managers on how to manage and guide.
