Fast-paced, always changing environment with great people but occasionally questionable decision-making

Pros

The people are amazing. You'll make great friends and feel invited into a very collaborative, friendly environment by your peers. The agency at large is very well-respected, which is a great status to maintain and be part of when working with clients.

Cons

Decisions made by senior leadership are not communicated well to employees. Any communications that are made by leadership are clouded in positivity, lacking detail and decreasing their credibility. Also, the leadership team seems to have become a group in and of themselves, protecting one another and becoming more disconnected from the team at large. For example, senior leadership members were almost all promoted to higher positions during the most recent common review season, while hard-working and deserving midlevel staff were largely overlooked despite similar years of experience and age.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate decisions that are made regularly. Reinforce ideals of an environment (such as approachable leadership) by practicing them, not merely stating them.

    Pros

    the place has a great name and carries some prestige so it looks good on your resume. the senior management is good and there's a lot of different areas that you can get involved in.

    Cons

    there's too much emphasis on how much time you're billing and not enough emphasis on recognizing when people are doing well. the middle management is really horrible and HR sucks.
