    I worked at TM Advertising full-time

    Pros

    There's a great chance to work on big name clients

    Cons

    Agency hasn't won any new business in a while; business is slow, there have been layoffs and morale is low

    Advice to Management

    Innovate and change the way you think or keep losing business. Management is so out of touch with what's going on at the ground level. Break up the cliques and get to work. Worry less about who's invited to lunch or rep events and focus on gaining new business.

    I have been working at TM Advertising (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Agency is poised to grow with several new clients added in 2015. New creative leadership is improving the work and helping attract new talent in the department. TM has a fantastic culture in place that has been awarded by Ad Age's Best Places to Work for three years running.

    Cons

    There is a recent loss of a long-time client, but it's quickly being replaced by new business.

    Pros

    Some good work and tons of PTO

    Cons

    Upper management runs the place like a sorority house, if you are young, cute and flirt with the few male bosses you will go far

    Advice to Management

    Look at your friends, the ones you have put in higher positions, because they are your downfall. Focus on business, not who you can drink and travel with and your company would soar.

    Pros

    Overall, TM has been a great place to work. Upper management has an open-door policy, and every employee has a voice - if you choose to be heard.

    Great benefits; awesome in-office perks like free snacks and drinks, games, parties. Cool location, close to a lot of action at the American Airlines Center.

    Fun, energetic work environment. Open floor plan, no cubicles.

    Cons

    Pay / raise structure could be a bit better (like most agencies), but that probably has a lot to do with IPG.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on your young talent. They are important to the future of the agency, and (unfortunately) can get restless easily.

    I have been working at TM Advertising full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    TM Advertising is located right next door to the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. It makes for a high-energy location with the Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Stars and all sorts of concert and shows happening right by the office. The inside of the office is very bright and open with sunlight streaming in from windows all around. There are no cubicles. It's all open desks which could scare some people at first, but you quickly get used to it and I personally could not imagine going back to cubicle life.

    The higher ups, including the CEO, are all easily accessible and they tend to know everyone at the company at some level.

    The benefits and added perks are great. From free snacks, sodas and coffee to medical, dental and vision coverage, the benefits package adds a lot of value to the job. Also a LOT of days off every year is a big plus.

    Cons

    Biggest downside is small, infrequent raises. There is a review process in place but that doesn't mean that you actually get one. And without a review, there is no raise. When I would ask about a review/raise I would always hear "Well, there are some people that haven't gotten a raise in several years." That's great and all, but "some people" are not me and I am asking because I think I have proven that i deserve one.

    It is always a struggle. No matter how much you do or how much money you are bringing in, it's always the same line that the company can't afford to give a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let good talent go. Show them that they are valued by paying them what they deserve.

    Pros

    The downtown location is close to fun restaurants and happenings at the American Airlines Center. Parking is convenient to office.

    Cons

    It's an agency struggling to remain relevant. Old and tired upper management with very out-of-date thinking. Interpublic Group needs to clean house. The company can't seem to win any new business.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. They treat you like an adult, but unfortunately some people take advantage of that. Excellent benefits thanks to being part of IPG/McCann Worldgroup. Leadership (both sides) is okay.

    Cons

    New business would be the first con. The leadership turnover in this department has been pretty rough, which partly stems from the people who they have hired to do the job. Another con, and this is a big one, is the lack of digital opportunities. This is a glaring problem when we go into pitches and it's even worse for creatives and account service who work there. The industry is far ahead of where TM currently sits as being a truly holistic creative shop that can truly do integrated campaigns for paying clients.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership (creative department) needs to be more connected with the department.

    Pros

    Lots of vacations and pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    Company relies on "this is how we have always done things" and people get hired into positions not based on skills and abilities but on who they know.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to work on modifying their process and procedures to be best-in-class not based on abilities/comfort level of employees who have been doing the same job for 10+ years. Leveraging the existing employees experience with new processes and technologies.
