Company reviews
"A good agency trying hard to get better"
Current EmployeeAccount Manager
Laughlin has deep roots in creativity, and has rounded itself out to be strong across all disciplines -- media, strategy, digital, content, and analytics. HR does a good job finding and hiring good people who want to be part of a team, contribute to clients' success, and have some fun along the way. Leadership includes good people who are trying hard to navigate the changing marketing landscape with mixed results. The desire is there, good people are there and, for the most part, a great work ethic and culture is there. The pieces are in place to grow -- the next year is pivotal.

"Good company"
Former EmployeeCopywriter
It's a family company, so the politics could make the work strange, but overall, I had a positive experience there. I will say they do not compensate employees well enough.

"Great pay but needs a more defined promotional structure and mentorship program."
Former EmployeeArtist
Good people for the most part and great pay, though the path for advancement is unclear. Often goes through management changes which makes knowing who your boss is very unclear. Certain positions have ZERO consideration for career advancement or where you will go in your individual career after working for them.

"Out of Touch"
Former EmployeeContent Strategist
In my short time there I noticed the traditional stereotypes of patriarchal ad agency life in play. Not everyone followed that type of sublimation but those that did found themselves in the core strategy team. It's a shame because the organization had a lot of talent and potential but ego and internal influence shaped the viability of the company.
