      Pros

      Some great people, some great projects and opportunities.

      Cons

      Some really cutthroat people who would willingly throw you under the bus to advance themselves. Very New York-centric for what is supposed to be a global company.

      Pros

      Smart people, decent clients, autonomy though at the expense of the expectation to just "figure it out" and "fake it till you make it"...surely Interbrand owes it's clients more than that?!

      Cons

      No leadership, crazy hours, no recognition for hard work (I.e. No promotions or bonus), low morale (due to poor senior leadership - I.e former MD), substandard office space, high turnover.

      Pros

      Opportunity for some employees to transfer to other global offices. Large network from which to pull new ideas.

      Cons

      Lack of leadership. More concerned about bottom-line than staff. Very low compensation, minimal to no pay raises. Long hours are not compensated. Very little appreciation for the work being done. Low employee morale. Not the greatest work product.
