Pros

- Exciting and diverse creative projects - Lots of innovative learning opportunities -The output of work is top quality and produced at a faster speed than anywhere else -Truly a bootcamp - great place to start your career -Well respected agency in the industry -Beautiful office on the 63rd floor of the World Trade Center. -Bagel Mondays :)

Cons

-It's a cult. The company is all about creating a hostile and intimidating work environment that excludes women or diversity. I've heard so many talented people question their self-worth after being in this culture. People don't even realize how bad it is until you are removed from the environment and get a chance to realize the abuse. -Work life balance is pretty much non-existent. You are expected to be online all day long. If you are staffed on a pitch you are definitely working all weekend. -Very little investment in positive culture such as trainings, courses, after hour activities such as team building activities, workouts, happy hours etc. - Turnover is insane in the production department even at the leadership level which is very discouraging and distracting -No one is invested in prioritizing the production department which is the glue that keeps everything together. -Producers are basically glorified admins. -Responsible time off is misleading. Management still gives you "suggested number of days off" per your tenure and will deny your time off at times if it surpasses their suggestion.

Advice to Management

In order to drive real change, you will need to change the leadership team drastically. They are all the same type of person pushing for hostility and an unsustainable work culture.

Pros

- Great place to learn - Fast paced environment but it's easy to get into the swing of things - You're given a lot of responsibility if you're starting off in the agency world, which makes for a good experience - You're surrounded by VERY smart, dedicated and creative people. It can be intimidating at times, but that itself is a great opportunity to learn from others. - The work itself is fun. - Bagel Mondays

Cons

- Taking days off is restrictive. There's a "Responsible Time Off" policy in place, but upper management makes you feel guilty for taking a day off or even working from home. - Late nights, which is justifiable when the work produced and the clients we work with are both at a very high standard. But that can result in a poor work/life balance. - Lack of direction in terms of the work. Sometimes, that can lead to poor communication. - Lack of cultural diversity. Doesn't feel all the way inclusive. - Lack of work culture. A workaholic culture is more dominant than anything. It can be very clique-y at times.

Advice to Management

Better on-boarding, consistent processes across all departments, hire people of diverse backgrounds (black, brown, queer),

It can be intimidating at times, but that itself is a great opportunity to learn from others.
