    I worked at Zimmerman Advertising full-time

    Pros

    Being around some people who genuinely care and love what they do - green machines ready to learn the business.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? This place is NOT an Advertising Agency. It is a sales company only caring about quarterly goals. There is no "putting the client first" or being honest and transparent regarding deliverables. As a Director who values herself in having input throughout the entire process, I am flabbergasted by the fact that I had never seen a creative brief or concept - after all, it is the media director who knows the most about where the creative will perform the best. Net/Net - you are never set up for success - personally as well is with the client.

    Pros

    You learn to deal fast with a lot of challenges and become a quick problem solver. You can easily get exposure with big retail clients. You get to have great contacts and share daily jobs with dedicated and talented co-workers.

    Cons

    There low possibility of career growth, management and I mean not even inside the creative department, the higher management who really takes decisions (is a very centralized old fashion structure) is not really interested in the inside growth, you are a little piece of the machine and they can getting rid of you without hesitation. They are very reactive in their business desiciones, not so good planners for the well-being of the creative team, that by the way there are awesome professionals. They prefer to bring outsiders for higher titles instead of rewarding and fueling inside growth. Advise? Don´t stay too long.
