Old School sports agency - very traditional
Account Director (Current Employee), Norwalk, CTMay 6, 2015
Pros: healthcare, PTO, summer Fridays, big name clients
Cons: fitting in is more important, homogenous
Big name clients, lots of opportunities to work on interesting projects and a foot in the door in the sports industry.

Very traditional and homogenous culture - being a cultural fit is more important than performance. Does not pay well.

Revolving Door
Senior Account Executive (Current Employee), Norwalk, CTJuly 18, 2014
Great opportunities are available for recent college grads to work on national marketing campaigns. Unfortunately, beyond that it is quite a revolving door. Entry and mid level employees seem to last no more than 2-3 years unless they advance quickly (which is really rare) due to lack of competitive salaries and benefits, poor communication from management and poor work-life balance.

Great place to network
Event Coordinator (Former Employee), Rogers, ARMarch 17, 2014
Most days are spent interacting via conference calls or sending emails. Travel is required in the event department and they do a great job of taking care of their employees on the road. The starting salaries are not too great and it takes some time to work your way up. Long hours are required so if you are entering at a low level be prepared to work a lot and get paid a little.
