    I worked at Resolution Media full-time

    Pros

    Good place to start
    Good accounts
    Great coworkers
    Lots of trust, autonomy, and client exposure at a early age

    Cons

    No culture - relies on media vendors for the culture for team outings
    Horrible communication from leadership, lots of changes happening that are terribly communicated to employees and teams. Creates a lot of rumors and distrust
    No training, career development, employee workshops etc. Hard to be the best at media when your company barely invests in you

    Pros

    Loved working here. Great work-life balance, upper management that cares about you as an individual and will look out for your professional development. Opportunities for quick upward mobility if you work hard and put your time in.

    Cons

    I've worked at far worse agencies who will work you to the bone and would definitely consider working for the parent company, Omnicom, again. Don't have any "Cons" to share.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for caring for employees at all levels and hearing their voices, even at entry level. This is rare to find at an organization level.

    Pros

    They hire great people
    Bagels
    I made good friends here

    Cons

    Lots of overtime
    Poor management
    Top-heavy company
    Sexist (A position was created, and shortened to 'DAD'. A joke was made at a company meeting that it would be funny if the person working directly under them was referred to as 'MOM'. Yes, this really happened.)

    Advice to Management

    Look the people you have working for you currently, and how they affect your overall turnover. Many great people have left the company following bad experiences with management. Review people's exit interviews and use them to make changes. Look at which teams have people leaving in a mass exodus style, and try to figure out why this is and make a change. Don't simply think high turnover is part of the industry - it doesn't need to be when you show people you value them and their work.

    Introduce management training for people who cannot communicate well (it's actually strange the number of people who are in top positions who can't), and ensure they are having the right conversations with the right people to get the results they need, and hold them accountable.

    Be transparent about your hiring plans, and stop pretending to look for new people when you aren't. Stop under-staffing teams to inflate your bottom line for your shareholders - the only people who actually seem to matter to you.

    Stop thinking you can replace everyone when they eventually move on (because you can't, many teams are understaffed for months at a time), and look after the talent you have.

    Finally, stop creating titles to appease people who have been in the business for a certain period of time, and promote based on merit - not friendship, or gender, or whatever outdated process you're using currently.

    Pros

    Resolution is on and has been on a significant growth trajectory. The company is a star of Omnicom Media Group and is doing the most interesting things in the space.

    Cons

    The integration to Omnicom isn't great right now, as the traditional agencies struggle to adapt, Resolution is being somewhat retrofitted onto sister companies.

    Advice to Management

    Build around our strengths, don't focus on fixing other agencies problems; fix ours first.
