Please stop the whole “go” thing, and dear god please do not call Atlanta “Hotlanta” if/when you move here. That said the big holding companies all have a presence here and there are a bunch of indie shops too: 22squared, Canvas, Chemistry, many more

Well, when you’ve been doing it a bit longer you’ll come to realize they’re all the same. You’ll even work with the same people at different agencies because Atlanta is small. Maybe ask specifics if you want specific answers. For example, “what’s 22squared like for the account team? Is there a work/life balance?” Or maybe try “Do the FitzCo account peeps have to do PM work as well?” If you’re looking for vibes just ask people who work there. Ready? Go.
