    Pros

    Great place to get experience. I enjoy working with the clients

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. Hard work won't get you ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Middle Management for my team is weak. No discussion about your future is had because you will not be invested in by the agency. "Review" process is about trying to keep you happy where you are.

    I worked at Team One full-time

    Pros

    Great partnerships and outings with media partners. Opportunity to learn a lot with large budgets. People in other departments are super cool and you get very close to your media team. Hours are not as intense as other media agencies.

    Cons

    Opportunity for promotion is very rare.

    I have been working at Team One full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ample snacks. Nice physical environment. Little to no danger of being laid off or fired (unless you get on the wrong side of a Lexus client). Great place to do invisible creative work.

    Cons

    A small group at the top of management reaps all the benefits of everyone's (only intermittently hard) work--unless you're in Strategic Planning, where you'll work like a dog. Job 1 (and 2, 3, 4, etc) is keeping Lexus happy. Nothing else matters. Least inspirational leadership imaginable. Incredibly political environment where the best ideas rarely if ever win.

    Advice to Management

    Consider sharing the wealth with the other 98% of the agency. Or use it to invest in some backbone.

    I worked at Team One full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Team One. While nowhere is perfect, Team One is an excellent place to work and values and supports its employees. I think this is why people stay at Team One for so long and why many who have left to take positions at other agencies end up coming back a second time. Compared to other agencies, Team One has excellent work life balance and is a pretty laid back place to work, but one where you can also have the opportunity to work on new and interesting types of projects (VR, retail experience, etc.).

    The people at Team One are a big part of what makes it great. Team One hires really smart people with impressive and interesting backgrounds. I was fortunate to have a great manager who was completely supportive and dedicated to my growth as an employee in a way that I have yet to experience anywhere else in my career.

    Team One also has solid benefits. They encourage and provide opportunities for employees to volunteer and get involved in the local community. They also have reimbursement programs for exercise classes/gyms and tuition reimbursement. Overall, they take a lot of steps to make it a well-rounded, positive place to work.

    Cons

    I personally was dedicated to Lexus while at Team One, and after many years working on the same client in the same capacity can start to feel a little bit stale. That being said, having a solid relationship with a big client like is part of the reason that Team One hasn't had the layoffs that have plagued many agencies in the LA area, so there are two sides to that.

    Team One isn't always putting out the most innovative and exciting creative which I know can make it less appealing to certain people.

    Lastly, Team One doesn't really have the super young, fun, exciting culture that some other agencies in the area have.

    Advice to Management

    I know that as a Publicis agency the process to get new positions and raises approved can be difficult, but I would recommend doing everything that you can to stay competitive and retain the talent that you have.
