    I worked at Zimmerman Advertising full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the people are younger, so it's a nice place to start out of college and get some experience. The benefits are decent, pretty good PTO and paid vacations.

    Cons

    Being that it's such a large agency, they have a hard time affording basic life essentials. They tell you there's a lot of room for growth, but unless someone leaves, there really isn't.

    I worked at Zimmerman Advertising full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you’re fresh out of college and want to build your knowledge of the ad world, Zimmerman is a good place to start. And the occasional social event was a treat.

    Cons

    While they often express their gratitude for their employees, it’s not often shown, either through compensation or even appraisals. A job well done is seldom recognized unless the company benefits greatly from it. The 24/7 seriously mentality is no joke, meaning work/life balance is hard to come by. And transparency is non existent. Truth is often hidden if it’s negative and often skirted around. Having worked there over 4 years, my departure and how it was handled was less than desirable. Even when I had expressed that I was taking steps to improve my mental health, there seemed little to no concern for my well being, and it seemed to have been dismissed.
