    Pros

    LEWIS is an amazing place to grow your career. There are opportunities to learn everywhere you turn. Between formal training workshops and on-the-job learning, everyone can develop skills for both the job they are in and their next one. There are lots of opportunities to move up in your career as well. Promotions are announced regularly and many of our managers have been here since early on in their careers.

    My pay and benefits are great too. LEWIS pays for my medical and dental coverage 100%. My 401k has a company match and I get 4 weeks of vacation and 12 holidays, plus free snacks beverages and fun social activities.

    Kontras

    Agency life is not for everyone. It's very fast-paced and clients can be demanding.

    Rat an das Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The regular communications from Sr. Management are great. I love hearing what is going on with the business and in the other offices.

    Good pay if senior, otherwise you're a beggar

    Kontras

    Everything else. CEO is never visible or communicates with employees. Culture is slim to none, with over promises and poor morale. Management is not qualified and turnover is huge, with consistent leaves and lay offs. HR is unprofessional. Plenty of other agencies that are better.

    Rat an das Management

    Be real to your employees and make the culture more enticing for others to stay. Be honest about company future and clients.

    Pros

    This agency offers employees the opportunity to work with large-scale multinational brands and companies. Employees are invited and encouraged to produce company sponsored media events and webinars, which is a great experience. If you land on the right team, you’ll get a chance to work on high profile projects. The growth track is fairly rapid, so if you’re bright and willing to work hard, you’ll find yourself promoted quickly. 

    Kontras

    While there are growth opportunities, the San Francisco office was built by leaders who valued politics and status quo over progress and development. The office environment is chaotic and combative. Cross-functional teams are often at odds with each other, which causes perpetual project and deliverable delays. Employees are rewarded for aggressive, school-yard bullying behavior with coveted clients and projects, causing the agency to lose a lot of talented people to other companies.

    Clients are often underserved, in part due to agency in-fighting, but mostly due to poor team structure and agency budget restrictions. To save money, interns are regularly used to do the work of junior executives, and occasionally specialists (such as data scientists, or SEO experts), with devastating results.  

    Executive leadership seems detached and focused on the wrong initiatives. Instead of addressing inter-office issues head on, an employee advocacy program was launched, gently encouraging employees to leave positive agency reviews in exchange for prizes.

    Work-life balance is nonexistent (while agency work is usually more accelerated than in-house work, the environment in this agency is unsustainable): employees who choose to take advantage of the “liberal work from home policy” are often met with heavy critique from coworkers and managers. Same applies for sick time and vacation time - with the unwritten office rule stating that you must work regardless of PTO. General working hours vary from team to team, but for PR and Digital it’s easily 12 hour days Monday-Sunday, and all holidays. 

    Office ops infrastructure is insufficient at best. There is no HR on site, HR is located the on the east coast; if you have an issue, it often goes unresolved. General operations such as employee tax information, health insurance and 401k accounts are frequently riddled with administrative errors, causing immense issues for many employees come tax time. Most disheartening of all, is HR’s regular attempts at denying laid off employees’ unemployment insurance, toeing the ethics line.

    Last but not least, the pay gap is staggering in terms of fair compensation for the SF Bay Area. Expect to make 20% below market rate. 

    Rat an das Management

    Take employee concerns seriously and lead by example. Take note of heavy turn-over across certain departments - this may mean the wrong people are at the helm. Consider localizing agency business structure for the US, as certain practices established in the UK create a restrictive business growth over seas.

    Pros

    I've never worked with a more talented group of people. At every level, the team at LEWIS is smart, motivated and passionate about what they do. Even more, this is a place where everyone has a voice. If you're new to communications, or early in your career, you can learn by working side-by-side with experienced PR, marketing and social media professionals. And if you're experienced, there is plenty of opportunity to build new skills, share your knowledge, and shape the direction of the company. Best -you're not limited to the office you work in! You have the opportunity to work and collaborate with sharp, smart, funny people all over the world!

    Kontras

    Change is in the air - at LEWIS and in the larger industry we play in. For the willing, its an exciting time and an opportunity to learn and grow. For others, its a time to reassess priorities. Either way, change is hard.

    Rat an das Management

    - Keep thinking big picture with an eye toward our digital future.
    - Keep working to integrate teams across disciplines.
    - Keep investing in your employees. The training is amazing and not something
       many agencies take the time to do.
    - Take care of the leaders who have stepped up to help grow and build the
       business, and find ways to reward the staff that continue to put their faith in the
       company.

    Pros

    The people on the teams are amazing. Hands down, they're the best part of working there. There is an unmatched sense of camaraderie and teamwork, and a commitment to client service that I've not seen in any other agency environment.

    If you're young and looking for some quick "trial by fire" experience in PR or marketing, this could be a good place to start your career.

    Kontras

    The problem is that the office is now basically run by an HR department with an agenda. The person who is supposed to be managing the business is based in San Francisco and has left day-to-day operations with HR, which doesn't make a lot of sense. With no one at the helm, it's easy to get distracted from client work, especially when you're drowning in red tape, interoffice politics and other unnecessary drama.

    Things in Boston are downright ugly.

    "Corporate" is doing their best to weed out senior staffers who aren't down with the new world order, either by laying them off or making life so hard that they feel like they have to leave. There are still a number of strong, good people in place, but I fear they won't last very long. Because as the good people go, so go the good clients...

    It's a toxic place now and I feel bad for those who are left behind.

    Rat an das Management

    Reflect on the opportunities you had with the Boston office, and realize what you stand to lose if you throw it all away.
