    I have been working at Williams Lea Tag full-time

    Pros

    Weekends Off, Major Holidays Off

    Cons

    Only 37 1/2 hours a week, Lead and Supervisor does not show nor do they posses any Leadership qualities. Co-workers show no work ethics because they are led by the blind.

    Advice to Management

    Get quality supervision. Someone who knows how to lead by example and knows all functions of all areas. One can't be led if they follow the blind.

    Pros

    you work on site at great client companies; you feel part of that culture.

    Cons

    if you don't have a good manager at your site , your career will just stall . Also they like to say there is advancement but it is very limited - and again if you are lucky to have a good manager well then you're lucky and we are performing and interacting with WLT clients on a daily basis (the clients are GREAT and they love us - if they knew how crappy and dissatisfied we felt at WLT I think they would be very surprised. Only thing keeping me there is I really like the client interaction - they compliment all the time. WLT manager don' t mentor or develop

    Advice to Management

    Look at your manager - below the director level and straight to local site managers - go talk to the people literally on the front lines every day if you want to know how to innovate, and understand your clients - and find a way to rate you managers - heck if no one is promoted in 5 years - ask why the hell not? Find site managers to develop people - or risk losing motivated people who want to advance. Clearly I have a choice to make in 2018; let's see what happens with the new WLT ownership this time.

    Pros

    - excellent work life balance. (Those who say there isn't haven't worked at other agencies or similar companies before)
    - opportunities for growth and cross departmental learning. Because the company does so many different things (true end to end creative production), you have the opportunity to learn many things and not get pigeon holed as a one trick pony.
    - opportunity to carve a place for yourself and make the role you want if you are proactive and innovative and committed to supporting company growth
    - GREAT PEOPLE!!!
    - daily/weekly perks such as fruit, coffee, pizza lunches, bagels etc
    - flexibility to work from home a couple days a week
    - If you have vision and drive, you can go far

    Cons

    - lack of strategy at a senior management level
    - poor technology investments, behind the times in terms of technology
    - parent company not understanding the creative production business well and making changes that are not always good
    - too much restructuring and turn over at a senior level
    - sometimes too much red tape to get simple things done (just get on with it!)

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, invest in the RIGHT people. Have a clear strategy and vision that can be communicated to the business and then stick to it and allow time for that strategy to be executed. Empower people and make people feel valued. Need to put strong BD people in place to be able to drive growth.

    Pros

    It's a job with benefits.

    Cons

    Poor benefits. Pay is inconsistent across similar positions. Lot of favoritism and back room dealing.

    Advice to Management

    Account Directors have no idea of the challenges of the front line staff in dealing with the clients. AD's running around trying to cover themselves and not fully supporting staff.
