      Pros

      You will be well compensated and have very short days.

      Cons

      The first question you should be asking yourself — do you want to work somewhere where there are more Creative Directors than designers? The next question you should ask yourself, are you okay with not working on anything of importance and being mostly a glorified production artist since all the work goes to the AOR? Lastly, ask yourself, can you deal with an exorbitant amount of gossip, very slow work (even though they'll tell you it's always urgent), and a creative team that is the opposite definition of collaboration? If you're still debating the position I'll offer you this advice: sometimes you'll take a job to learn but the pay will be poor, sometimes you'll take a job because the pay will be great but the work will be terrible, and rarely but occasionally you'll get both — this place is the 2nd one if you haven't guessed it already.
