    Pros

    Free ice cream in the summer. Benefits package solid. Location.

    Cons

    Where to start? The overall tone & culture of the agency is sadly depressing, and stressful. The people who are successful there are part of the "in crowd", much like a high school. Management does not listen to their people, but instead kowtows to other WPP agencies where there are shared clients.

    Advice to Management

    Get a spine. Listen to your people, people at ALL levels. If you get negative feedback, or are asked for help, don't punish the messenger!

    "Waffle"

    I worked at Sudler & Hennessey full-time

    Pros

    Large agency with many resources. Long track record in healthcare. Occasional creative brilliance and is transitioning to the digital age

    Cons

    Has a tendency to do the agency shuffle far too frequently. Too many silos means the agency waffles in its business strategy depending on who is in charge at the moment. Tends to be money driven: your success is less about how good you are and more about how much money you bring in.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like the eager, talented, smart and motivated individuals they are and you will get farther.

    Pros

    there are, unfortunately, no pros to share. just happy i got out alive--barely. that is the only pro--if you can escape somewhat intact.

    Cons

    too many to list here, but let's start with slave driver, no work/life balance, backstabbing, hypocrisy, nasty coworkers, self-indulgent management. the list could go on forever.

    Advice to Management

    you should all be fired for allowing greed and corruption to run amok among you.
