    I worked at Turkel (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Petite office, with a group of great people. The office is located in a good plaza in Coral Gables, which is aesthetically pleasing to commute to (and walk during lunch hours).

    There is no hierarchy--very flat structure that allows you to speak with everyone. Everyone leaves at 6:00pm sharp. No late hours.

    Work doesn't follow you home. Very stress-free!

    People in charge are honest and kind.

    Cons

    Boring accounts, low salary and no room for growth. In the case that you promote yourself, you might be a Senior there, but you will learn quickly you are way behind on the curve when you try getting into a bigger agency.

    They do not have a work structure set in place. This is an agency where account planners don't produce briefs. Yes, you heard that right. They don't do briefs and senior staff doesn't like doing revisions for the junior staff. It's a very small agency with no "teams" to tackle assignments--they are more on an individual case.

    They don't have a thirst to become better/bigger. There's no "fun" agency atmosphere, which sounds silly, but a loose atmosphere helps the creative mind/brainstorming. Instead, you just sit at your place all day without talking to anyone. No one talks there, they just sit in silence.

    They seem to be happy thriving with the budget Barry University gives them as an account, in exchange for the routine work they provide. Outside-of-the-box work gets nodded as a "nice try," then discarded because they want to keep it low risk. I think they had Puerto Rico Tourism at one point.

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding of the industry needs and how the modern workplace has changed the creative process. Learn to create briefs, mentor junior creatives and pay the corresponding salary to Sr+ creatives willing to provide input to help the agency grow.

    Make the work environment more enjoyable. Currently, everyone just sits in silence on their computers all day. Very little interaction.

  3. "Good place to learn"
