It gets a super bad rep because it’s a pretty account driven agency, HOWEVER, overall I am super happy with my experience. I love all of the people I work with. The work has been completely turning around due to our new CCO who came from Droga5. It takes time to flip preconceived notions and expectations but i think it is definitely on its way up and now would be a smart time to come on board

I like the Verizon work for non wireless business. Very emotional. The one with the company with cancer diagnosis and the mom. Wow. Gets you. MIchael Raso is lead creative on that. He was from Crispin.

The worst place to work. Came in hoping there would be a lot of momentum with new executive hires but the work remains really terrible.

The new leadership is part of the problem. It's the original staff that keeps the lights on.

Almost every creative is looking to get out of here. In less than a year we went from best place to work to the worst place. Stay away.

That place is never going to turn around. The people running it have no clue and clients came to that agency for a reason: bland safe work and account people who are happy to be treated like doormats.

What’s so bad about it? Insane hours? Account folks overtly directing the creatives? An ECD who’s never happy? Seriously wondering what is so bad?
