How are promotions handled at Droga5?

Pros

Free beers on Thursdays Occasional parties Amazing creatives, and cool work

Cons

Extremely elitist, toxic culture consisting of socially awkward people who grew up with money, masquerading as cool kids. Definition of cut throat. Definition of dog eat dog. Definition of awful. The type of place where mediocrity thrives, and management is not shy about absolutely hating their jobs and projecting all the negative energy to anyone who will take it. Promotions are few and far between and a quick glance at the executive suite will let you know all you need to know about the clear "diversity" problem.

Advice to Management

Come out of your glass office and off your high horse and care.
