    Pros

    Great clients: you get to work with well-known brands. Great people: almost everybody is talented and driven. Looks great on your resume/CV.

    Cons

    Chaotic management: very little transparency, most focus is on winning new clients rather than doing great work with existing clients. Mediocre salaries: just average within the industry for many roles. High turnover: good people leave all the time, largely for the reasons I've just listed.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your biggest asset: the people who work for you. There's a reason that turnover is so high.
