    I worked at Wieden+Kennedy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Unlimited vacation Some very nice people Office is cool Random perks A lot of women who work here are awesome.

    Cons

    Passive aggressive Frat boy creative club feel The city of Portland is racist there is always something going on. So if you are a decent human who is affected by the mistreatment of others, this is not the place for you. Unequal and bad pay. Raises don't really happen. Creatives come from the same places. Not a lot of helpful feedback concerning reviews. HR department is a joke. All agency emails

    Advice to Management

    Advice to those wanting to work here. If you want a resume boost go for it. It will definitely help you get a better paying job afterward. It's a good place to be for a few years then leave.
