R/GA = Kind and diverse ESDs. Variety of work. Partnership with media and data. Sincere about work from anywhere. Some good purpose-driven projects around racial equity. Prestigious but demand tech clients. Can be a good springboard into tech companies and brand owners.

W+K = Great reputation. Growing culture of strategy. More focus on brand voice and storytelling work.

You'll get good brands and chances for award- winning work in both, it depends on what direction you want to take your career in.

D&G = Less established, less of a strategy culture.

Thank you all! Looking for honestly just good company culture. Like kind people who genuinely care and also care about creating great work.
