    I worked at The Company of Others (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This advertising agency is a wonderful place to work at. The culture, the people and the environment are awesome. The team I worked on was fantastic. They are great people that are supportive of each other and work very hard to get everything done. While at The Company I always felt that I was family and not just a number at an agency. I was always thanked for all that I did here and it felt good to get positive feedback.

    Also, loved that fact that there was a work/life balance here.

    Cons

    No complaints. A great work place.

    I have been working at The Company of Others full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This Company cares about their people and their Company.
    Progressively moving towards the future with their culture and strategy.
    I have been with this company over 10 years and I believe it is the most exciting and optimistic that I have ever seen.
    Extremely great benefits and bonus plans.
    Brought in a Managing Director- Great call.

    Cons

    Communication is improving between departments and there are strategies in place that are beginning to show that.
    All change takes some time, but we have a leadership team that truly listens and is on board to build a magnificent agency.

    Advice to Management

    -Keep doing what you are doing! It's only going to get better.

    I have been working at The Company of Others full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has settled into a great groove. All teams across the agency are workin really well, and working well together. Multiple wins in 2016 and more ok the horizon for 2017 has turned the business around. The creative output is top knotch, media is smart and effective, the research team is a favorite among clients, and finally PR provides a level of attention that is second to none.

    Cons

    We're outgrowing our space, so things are a little tight. We have a few really large accounts that pull teams into all-hands mode. The team is small and everybody has to roll up their sleeves every once in a while, but that's also a good thing because it shows the group that we're all in it together.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing
