I mostly enjoyed my time at Sterling Brands, although it was going through some turmoil and reorganization at the time. The company has since gotten through the transition and is in a better place.
Pros
Good work. Above-average creative output. Nice, talented people.
Cons
Office has no energy or life. Dead silence. Like a morgue.

Unquestionably, one of the best branding agencies in the world
Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 12, 2012
Sterling Brands is a leading branding agency with clients and branding opportunities that give you the opportunity to make a significant difference in the world.
The company's leadership is outstanding, with some of the smartest people in the business heading each department.
Sterling's wealth of experience, dedication to innovation and reputation for developing the industry leaders of the future is truly a thrill to be a part of.
The work days are long and arduous, but cushioned on all sides by great people, incredible talent, outstanding personalities and a healthy dose of humor.
Sterling is one of the hardest working agencies out there. 12 hour work days are frequent, but hardly lonely. While predominantly populated with dedicated and driven employees, Sterling also has a healthy share of people content to do as little as possible. This lack of generosity, while possibly necessary for mental and physical well-being, takes a toll on those who pick up the slack.
The hardest part of the job is the workload and the work/life balance. New York is an extremely difficult place to live on a salary below the industry standard. Sterling does offer competitive wages to senior and executive staff, but it does not reward employees internally unless threatened at an inconvenient time with their departure.
The best part of the job is the people you get to work with and opportunities Sterling gives you in the industry.
Sterling is easily one of the finest agencies in the business, a tremendous partner for its clients and a place that you can count on to prepare you for the future.
Pros
the people, the clients, the location, the opportunities, the conversation
Cons
short-no breaks, increasingly corporate environment, more evolutionary than revolutionary, inter-departmental exchange
