    I have been working at SK+G full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for...very flexible employer and the PTO and holidays are great.

    Cons

    Not many - usually a paid week off between Christmas and New Years, but this evaluated every year so it's hit or miss some years.

    Pros

    Amazing group of people to learn from. The level of talent here is really top notch.

    Cons

    Honestly I don't have any. If im reaching I'd say maybe more face to face time with creative directors.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pulling in fun new clients

    Awesome group of people with and understanding of commitment to their clients. You will work hard and have a lot of fun surrounded by many talented advertisers.

    The pay scale is on the low end and individual recognition could be stepped up.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the long term goals of your employees and help them to achieve them. It will improve motivation and loyalty.

    Pros

    Good roster of clients with exciting opportunities. The partners are genuinely good people and actively seek to achieve recognition in the industry, providing the tools and means to their teams to succeed.

    The group of designers are lead by one of the best in the business. Thoughtful, humble and precise, he earns the respect and admiration of his employees.

    Cons

    The current slate of Creative Directors do not have the skills or acumen to do great work. They succeed by pinning failures on their subordinates, talking behind their backs and pitting them against each other. They freely accept praise and recognition but are quick to point the finger elsewhere when criticism arrives rather than take responsibility. This promotes an unprofessional culture of whispering and looking over your shoulder. Crude and confrontational, they are more interested in the social perks of the position than being a respectable leader.

    Advice to Management

    Character is a more valuable in creative leadership than an impressive resume. Clone your Design Director. Your creative future is determined at the top. Pay close attention.

    I have been working at SK+G full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Met a few hard working people that made it possible to keep working there. Free snacks and alcohol on Fridays. Clean refrigerators.

    Cons

    Met too many unpleasant and mean people. Too much politics. Sweat shop. Do not need to be talented to get ahead. Limited vision.

    Advice to Management

    Management would not know what to do with any good advice. They don't seem able to learn new tricks. Stuck in the 90s.

    I worked at SK+G (More than a year)

    Pros

    A beautiful office in a nicer, if underdeveloped, part of town. High end luxury brand clients can offer some interesting projects especially if you like that kind of design.

    Cons

    Lower than average salaries, but at least Las Vegas is cheap. Not very tech or internet savvy.

    I worked at SK+G full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big name clients, easy going when it comes to needing time off/being late for legitimate reasons, true talent within the creative department, great benefits and vacation time and free booze "happy hour" activities on Fridays.

    Cons

    Trust is placed on the clients rather than on the creative, which creates stifled work and unfulfilled talent. There's a huge reliance on traditional media and a divide between the interactive department and the rest of creative. There is definite favoritism, gossip and office politics within the agency. If you don't get along with the higher ups you will find yourself unfulfilled. Due to favoritism, some creatives are putting in extra hours and working weekends while others are bored with nothing to do even though they are very capable. There was very little structure within the creative department when I started, it has become more structured with time, but it has only been a detriment due to the uneven workloads. Also, don't ever count on getting a raise or promotion, those are few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees as equals, particularly within creative. Allow everyone a chance to work on new business pitches, not just the favorites. Keep creatives in the loop regarding large projects on the horizon. Don't come to creatives when the deadline is tomorrow and they are unfamiliar with the project. Allow the creative department and interactive department to work together so that campaigns are more fleshed out and creatives have a better idea of the directions their original idea have gone in.
