  1. "A place that invests in making mid-management into emotionally-intelligent leaders"

    I have been working at McMillan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Provides intensive leader training and small-group workshops for mid-management
    - Offers plenty of outlets for creative thinking if you are proactive
    - Is attentive and very responsive if you are get "burn out"
    - Brilliant, stylish, and fun teams to work with
    - Senior executives have a open door policy, and frequently seem to have mid-management drop by for informal advice and boosts.
    - Industry standard salary, but with good benefit package (and you get your birthday and a volunteer day off)
    - Offers annual personal improvement for conferences or training

    Cons

    - Some people are usually or always busy, while others seem to have quite a lot of free time
    - Interesting and highly-creative projects are often treated as extra-curricular, and little or no time is allotted on your schedule for them.

    I have been working at McMillan full-time

    Pros

    McMillan is a dream. The management is open, transparent and inclusive (not to mention ultra-friendly and approachable). Employees are valued, appreciated and compensated fairly. Professional development is strongly encouraged. The environment is open, creative and encouraging. The culture and values is something I've never experienced and can't really describe - dedicated creative professionals who work hard, play hard and genuinely love to come to work.

    Cons

    B2B can be challenging and demotivating sometimes. Projects are large and tend to last for very long periods of time with no end in sight. But to counter that, we're given the opportunity to work on moral-boosting fun pro-bono work regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Your openness and appreciation for your staff is the glue that keeps the culture strong. Keep doing what you're doing. You have an army supporting you.
