An advertising agency can be a tough place to work: We live in a world of high pressure, tight deadlines, and demanding clients. Let’s face it, they’re all part of the daily grind. The truth is, not everyone can hack the environment.
But employees who thrive under pressure, day in and day out, prosper at advertising agencies and can drive your agency’s bottom line as well.
Thats why an agency is truly only as good as its people. And thats also why one of the biggest risks an agency can take is hiring someone new. One hiring mistake especially in a small- or medium-sized agency can dramatically influence performance, profitability, and sustainability for the entire company.
