    Fun place to start your career. Good for account management/biz side of the industry, great benifits

    Pros

    Lots of great talent and strong work knocking around. Respectful of personal life and family. Passionate about growth and better work. Great culture and camaraderie.

    Cons

    Struggle to make nimble, lean work. Not everyone cares to learn to be digital savvy. No tech in house. Creative work is always a big campaign. Still haven't figured out how to price and execute smaller projects in their mix.
    Very outdated infrastructure (IT, process, expenses, etc) to the point its a huge waste of money and time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on growing beyond B2B and Healthcare

    Pros

    good comp to work in non IT depts.

    Cons

    Whole IT infrastructure around the globe has been outsourced. Onsite people has been laid off or in a process of looking for a job. Replacement has no knowledge of a process, which creates a huge problem for other depts and companies to function. People are not the assets for comp anymore.
