    Pros

    * Big, accomplished agency with lots of varied practices and high-profile clients.
    * Many very dedicated and creative people who work hard, put the client first, and drive successful, coordinated campaigns.
    * International brand recognition, industry awards.
    * Offices all over the world offer opportunities for transfer, travel, cultural exchange, fresh perspectives, and global influence and interchange.
    * Youthful energy paired with a strong history of experience in the business and stability of an older, well established agency.
    * Fast-paced and often exciting atmosphere, lots of teamwork and collaboration on client work.
    * Variety of training opportunities, talks, etc. Events and conferences.

    Cons

    * Some really poor management examples in a few cases, including self-aggrandizing behavior (passing risk and failure down, taking personal credit for achievement), not enough thought about employee incentives and career development, etc.
    * Some people are treated very well, given "rock star" status, and others are scapegoated and mistreated, seemingly not in relation to merit, but more based on relationships and rapport with managers.
    * Often over-emphasized focus on new biz while existing projects go sideways (internally, but never allowed to negatively impact clients), staff gets burnt out working long hours or doing damage control, etc.
    * Too many managers doing "strategy," wining and dining leads, attending conferences, and driving staff to put in extra work on pitches while still meeting billability targets and deadlines.
    * Some people are more sparkle than substance. Company culture is often more focused on appearance than reality.
    * Big, old agency is sometimes slow-moving, risk-averse, and feels a little late reacting to trends and market shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider whether managers are actually providing leadership or adding value. Give credit where credit is due, and not where it's not.
