    Pros

    Great office environment and location—lots of perks for working there (including bagels, ice cream, beer, and wine). Teams can be very strong and willing to put in time and energy to make an idea really come to life. Great creative and a strong environment to foster innovative and original ideas

    Cons

    Hours on some teams can be very long, but about normal for the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Don't wait to offer raises until an employee decides to leave

    I worked at Sudler & Hennessey full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good PTO, High tolerance for random times of arrival

    Cons

    Senior management don't like or trust each other bad for morale and culture. Senior management openly puts down other managers and employees = poor leadership style. Ambiguous culture, favoritism rules. No raises, no career management.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Leaders should pretend to like each other for the benefit of the employees. Stop mad-mouthing each other to staff.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    -This is a great place to go if you want to set your resume back
    -So many people have quit you will have your pick of positions!
    -The people are kind enough to not recommend this place to their friends

    Cons

    Outside of the fact that all the positive reviews are pretty clearly fake reviews written by sr. mgmt, there are so many:
    -Last fall management asked people to come in earlier and work longer hours, but also said there would be "no raises, no bonuses, no promotions" (their words)
    -They are great great at losing business, terrible at winning it. If you choose to interview, ask how many brands they won in 2017. Watch them try to squirm out of answering that
    -Sudler treats employees like they should be grateful to have jobs - and then is surprised when people quit. They stringing people along for promotions/raises, and then only once you've gone through the effort of find a new job and resigning, do they try to keep you with a promo
    -It's hard to change teams because you don't know which piece of business they will lose next
    -Management is embarrassingly outdated
    -Management said they would be transparent, but they are not
    -There is very little digital work, so don't expect to learn anything or gain relevant experiences that would be valuable to your resume
    -The company has no idea what it's positioning is, what type of agency it wants to be
    -The ice cream in the summer isn't even that good
    -Pretty certain this place will be closed in a few years

    Advice to Management

    -All of you should quit. You have no idea how to run a successful company or win new business
    -Stop resting on your laurels. If the last great thing Sudler did was invent the NBC logo in the 50s and create a couple fonts no one uses anymore, you have a problem
    -Fire the IT guy, he's awful and I'm pretty sure he only makes things worse
