    Pros

    Great location. Small office. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. No vision for future growth and stability. Lost a lot of talented people.

    Creative opportunities are very slim. Current client roster is very limiting.

    Advice to Management

    Need to expand knowledge of different retailers and industries. The Arkansas way is not the only way. Understand the market value of employees on all levels. Invest in good talent early.

    Pros

    Great culture, very dog friendly, lots of opportunity for career growth. The people who work here are amazing. The work can be fun, lots of strategic and creative thought behind the work.

    Cons

    Stuck-in-the-mud clients. The biggest client is also the most difficult to work with and doesn't appreciate (or understand) what SaatchiX does. A lot of the more innovative and creative work gets cancelled because clients get cold feet.

    Pros

    Working with some of the best and smartest marketers in the world - at the client and within the agency. Stable, great reputation, great shopper insights.

    Cons

    Fast moving intense projects that come in and go out within 48 hours. Requires seamless teamwork which is variable, depending on the team. Lost some great creative resources in last couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Balance the workload better

    I worked at Saatchi & Saatchi X full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some great folks, some of the best I've ever met. Depending on the team you have an opportunity to do some amazing work, but you have to push. It teeters between a creative strategic lead agency and "account lead, give the client what they want" agency at times. You have the chance to drive which agency you want it to be. I felt a sense of family with my colleagues and the agency as a whole. Some genuine people work here. This a good place to jump into the industry. NWA is a very cool place to experience. The Ozarks are beautiful.

    Cons

    Easily shifts into a "good enough" atmosphere with some upper management coasting on the tails of their subordinates. In a lot of agencies this is expected and I started to see this more at SaatchiX. Because of the smaller market you have limited career growth within the area. Walmart and P&G work gets old.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your agency a positive productive environment. Listen to everyone, not just the guys on top who know how to play the politics in their favor. Leaders elevate the people around them. They don't look for ways to compliment themselves in self preservation and they get involved in the work. Best wishes to you.

    Pros

    An opportunity to take the consumer past the social and measured media, but the hand, up the aisle to make a buying decision.

    Cons

    Still working out the best how-tos.
