works at 

Wieden + Kennedy

i am really underpaid and feel very under appreciated but everything else is great. because it’s wieden. Am I crazy if I’m considering leaving for another agency because of the low pay at wk? Or do I shut up and take the L? (Maybe(?) relevant info: I’m a queer BIWOC in my mid twenties, this is my first ad gig, been at wieden 3 years now)

    A great place to work!

    Pros

    - lots of projects and lots of ownership - almost everyone seems open to trying new ways of doing things - leadership has made a point of protecting employees during the pandemic - leadership working to actively improve culture/ encourage people to come into office - ability to work remote as often as needed

    Cons

    - sometimes disorganized teams - looking only at their dept and not the overall business objectives - seems that some are averse to rules/ best practices/ onboarding - still feels like many accounts are reinventing wheels to make simple, standardized templates for internal and client facing decks. - teams are really lean and leads to consistently working over standard hours without any indication of when it will decrease, making having a work life balance a challenge to keep projects moving.

    I've never worked somewhere with so many employee perks. Upper management really listens and implements things that people ask for. They take care of their employees and throw insane company parties.

    Cons

    None. I. love this agency and how they have handled work life post-COVID.
