Great people - Lousy Company
Copywriter (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 11, 2014
This is a great place to get a start in the ad agency world, but with extremely low pay, no room for advancement, a top heavy management structure, and draconian policies and practices you won't stay here long.

The people you work with will be great but overworked and abused. The owners (the Schawk's) care nothing about their people and only about how much money they are going to make.

If you have no other choice you should take the job for the experience but do not stop looking for a better job.
