    Pros

    The President. She Is the single best thing to happen to the agency in years. She had to make some really hard decisions over the last 6-12 months and we are a better agency as a result.

    The work/life balance, the culture, the people.

    Honest communication from the top down.

    The "open door" policy.

    The evolution of our culture. It's no longer dominated by old school attitudes.

    Cons

    Not in high doses, but a little bit of cattiness, some lingering old school behavior at the executive level and laziness from a few who always put in the very least amount of effort possible.

    We don't move people (creative and account) on and off businesses often enough.

    Not enough opportunities to mix it up with other MDC agencies.

    Couple of clients that cross the line from being challenging to being bullies. It's hard to watch people being treated so badly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being you. You are an inspiration to us all!
