    I have been working at Team One full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, work-life balance, and overall culture. Has an atmosphere of collaboration, and has great benefits/perks, like great medical/dental (Blue Shield/Delta), 401k matching, free food, happy hours, parties, generous vacation/flex days.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to move up/get pay raises. If the opportunity isn't there you either leave or deal with it.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more ways for employees to explore other opportunities within the company.

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to different aspects of advertising.

    Cons

    Leadership is pretty aloof. Easy to get overwhelmed in work. Very individualistic culture. Not terribly team oriented as a result.

    I have been working at Team One full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to get experience. I enjoy working with the clients

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. Hard work won't get you ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Middle Management for my team is weak. No discussion about your future is had because you will not be invested in by the agency. "Review" process is about trying to keep you happy where you are.

    I worked at Team One full-time

    Pros

    Great partnerships and outings with media partners. Opportunity to learn a lot with large budgets. People in other departments are super cool and you get very close to your media team. Hours are not as intense as other media agencies.

    Cons

    Opportunity for promotion is very rare.

    I have been working at Team One full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ample snacks. Nice physical environment. Little to no danger of being laid off or fired (unless you get on the wrong side of a Lexus client). Great place to do invisible creative work.

    Cons

    A small group at the top of management reaps all the benefits of everyone's (only intermittently hard) work--unless you're in Strategic Planning, where you'll work like a dog. Job 1 (and 2, 3, 4, etc) is keeping Lexus happy. Nothing else matters. Least inspirational leadership imaginable. Incredibly political environment where the best ideas rarely if ever win.

    Advice to Management

    Consider sharing the wealth with the other 98% of the agency. Or use it to invest in some backbone.
