The only women in the C-suite/leadership team are in HR or PR. While they have a few women in top roles, overall the culture is male-dominated. The Account Teams are almost exclusively male. Creative leads are all male. A man with less experience than I have but in an almost identical job, made almost $20,000 more than I did. Travel is required. It's written into the contract for most client-facing roles that if you don't agree to travel on-demand, they can fire you. This is not good for women with small children, and certainly impossible for single moms unless they had full time care for the kids.

I've only worked here a short time, but this agency seems to offer a better work-life balance than is usual in the industry. Also, the proportion of women to men in leadership and creative positions is better than I have experienced at other agencies.

This is a good ole boys club. To the men in management and the men in the membership, if you're a woman in that building you must be a secretary or somebody's wife.

If you're planning to have a family, I would not do so here. The maternity leave is far inferior to competitors and there is no interest in changing the policy. This is probably because it's a male-dominated company; most men with families have stay-at-home wives; and the majority of women here are mostly too young to understand the need for a good maternity leave policy.

This is a rare woman-owned creative company, so they're all about empowering other women to succeed. But there aren't always the resources or time available to do so--there's a lack of mentoring, and things are so fast-paced that it's easy to get lost in the shuffle.

    Maybe. Women are treated fairly here. That said, it is a tough environment--long hours, lots of travel (but that's typical of the advertising/branding industry).

A supportive work environment where women have a voice. The talent/HR department is full of caring people who work hard to look out for employees and provide them with nice perks, both big and small. I haven't used maternity leave but it is offered. I believe it is 12 weeks paid at 100% if you've been at the company more than 2 years. Between 1 and 2 years of service, I think it is full pay for 9 weeks and partial pay (50%) from 9-12 weeks.

    Maybe. It depends on what her goals are. If she's looking to make it to the C-suite I wouldn't. Otherwise I would.

There are women working here, but there are many challenges to advancement. Upper management, especially in creative, is almost entirely male. There is definitely a boys' club vibe here, but the good news is, they are trying to address it. The President is working to implement initiatives to improve the situation. It's a slow process, but it's definitely on the radar, which is nice.

You will be working with very important and big-name clients and therefore will work long hours and sometimes weekends. Management in the office is subpar and the higher-ups don't exactly know how to be mentors. That being said, the office environment can often be very fun and friendly.

I felt like it was a fairly equal company. The benefits across the board were really great. The location was great. The people were great. The only gripe - and what ultimately meant I had to leave - was that it was creatively stifling. American Express ran the NYC agency, and there are only so many ideas and executions you can come up with for one financial brand.
