Run if you are a single parent
Graphic Designer (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, FLSeptember 14, 2018
Management was mediocre at best. As single parent had no work life balance and kids had to miss opportunities for extracurricular activities. Job culture suffered due to long hours and constant need to be connected to email/phone. When problems arose, they were not dealt with properly and created bigger issues later on.

Good shop with incredible but unrealized potential.
Group Creative Director (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 14, 2018
Started during a time of incredible growth and creative opportunity. But it’s currently experiencing a bit of growing pains. Culture has taken a hit and turnover, especially on the account and strategy side has been a bit high. Hopefully it can balance itself out soon.
Pros
Great process, creative opportunities, good compensation
Cons
Culture, work/life balance, billing structure

Worst Experience
Art (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PANovember 21, 2017
Stay as far away from this agency as you can. TERRIBLE! Worst experience ever. Zero onboarding. They will lure you in with accounts you'll never work on, a great office and then throw you to the wolves with no assistance or guidance and then blame you. Oh, they will give you a balloon the day you start, but don't worry it will burst soon enough. Staff and management have egos. Huge egos. Egos not justified by the work. Oh, and they love time sheets and tracking hours. Billing (and managing project billing) was way more important than pushing creativity. They have a process for branding colleges with swiped design elements and wordy manifestos that never get pressure tested. Good luck.
Pros
Nice Office
Cons
Everything else

Long hours
New Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Newport Beach, CASeptember 20, 2017
Lots of bad vides between offices. Everyone at the East Coast office was so burnt out and terrified of the owners. Lots of very talented people that work there but they are very overworked.
Pros
4pm Friday drinks
Cons
Long hours

Look elsewhere
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 19, 2017
The culture is toxic and unprofessional. Management treats their employees poorly creating a turnover rate that is really high (people have lasted a few days, some a few weeks). Compensation is low and there are no annual reviews or company wide increases. All the "cool" clients listed on their website (Ferrari, Nike, etc) aren't even clients anymore or they only did a small project for.
Pros
Free beer on Friday after 4pm
Cons
Expected to work 7 days a week and always be on email at all hours, verbal harassment, immature management

Fast paced and interesting workplace with some snags
Agency Coordinator/ Recruiting Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAFebruary 25, 2016
My experience had ups and downs. You work with some incredibly talented people but the agency lacks support where it is needed. Within operations each person's roles were blurred and there was not a lot of support for each person to be successful. I saw a lot of power trips causing people to burn out faster. Often basic things would not work and would be ignored which trickled down to bigger problems. It was an overall volatile atmosphere. The perks was that the company does motivate you and you leave feeling proud of it, but it needs some help with general management.
Pros
Beer friday, barista, cool people
Cons
cut throat industry, a lot of mood swings

Face paced, true "ad agency," - great place to start a career
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMay 20, 2013
160over90 is a great place to start a career. 160 is built like a true "ad agency" in which there are multiple departments that handle specific duties and multiple positions from entry level to directors. Because of their structure, you will be exposed to every aspect of the industry and ultimately be given the tools to developed a range of skills. While I was at 160, we had great office camaraderie (they had a ping pong and foosball table and "beer Fridays" to give everyone an hour plus to sit around and enjoy the week that was). On the other end of the spectrum, the hours are agressive at times (sometimes with multiple 10 hour days a week and even weekends) and the initial salary will be inline with the level of experience you have.
