Pros: fun, open office setting where you can chat with everyone and share ideas.

However, the moral of the company as a whole is low because employees are not being rewarded with raises and promotions are extremely rare.

Flexible Schedule & Casual Work Enviornment
Database Developer (Current Employee), Irving, TXMay 16, 2013
Pros: paid time-off approx 20 days per year plus 15 days of vacation time.
Cons: company growth
A typical work day for the most part is a steady flow of work and minimal meetings.

I've learned how to work withTeam Foundation Server to manage and control versioning of SQL Code and SSIS packages.

Management is relational and supportive.

Co-workers are supportive and team focused.

The hardest part of this job is that there can be extended periiods of downtime due to client delays.

The most enjoyable part of this job is its flexibility/telecommute. Coworkers take an interest in each other’s lives other than working relationships.

Great office space. Too top heavy
Associate Creative Director (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 30, 2013
Pros: office space and in house bar
Cons: no advancement and too much upper management
There is no loyalty to hard-working employees, you will be fired at the drop of a hat. No training, no advancement and no raises. JWT still feels that you should be honored they chose you to work there.

An intern's point of view
Intern (Former Employee), Downtown, LebanonApril 25, 2013
Pros: got introduced to the work place and its heirarchy
Cons: didn't work in my field
Working in the web design and development department, shows you the flow of work, where they meet, how they assign the work. The team was composed of members with different tasks..ranging from copy writers, junior graphic designers, senior designers and project managers. I was the intern who had to seek attention from the members to give me a certain job. I ended up working on programming. It was not something related to the field, but I learned something and I was able at least to watch people during their work time and the methods they use to deal with each other.

Horrible place to work
finance associate (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAOctober 26, 2012
Pros: nice building
Cons: management, work ethics, and salary.
By far the worst place I have worked. No organization or structure at the atlanta office. No training for new hires, no compassion, and horrible management. Definitely no the best place to work if you value team morale or organization. Also, they will fire you without warning and for no reason. More of a popularity contest than how good you do your job.

November 12, 2012

By far the best agency I've worked. The Finance team is wonderful. Management is very considerate and the supervisors are down to earth. No, I'm not a manager or a supervisor but just a happy employee who thought it's only fair to share the positive experience.

Challenging and Busy Place to Work
Project Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 22, 2012
Pros: smart and creative co-workers
Cons: very hard to maintain a work life balance.
JWT can be a very challenging place to work but the end rewards make all the late nights worth it. The account and creative teams are top notch as well as the support staff. In my two years, and counting, here at JWT I have learned a great deal about how a large creative agency operates and how to get things done under tight deadlines.
