      Pros

      Although it's one of the biggest advertising agency networks in the world, there's a great sense of community. I've worked worked with colleagues from Europe, Asia, South america, North America and the Middle East. They've all been talented. They've all been good people.

      Cons

      Like any advertising agency, the hours can be too long.
