Philadelphia boutique advertising agency The Michael & Elliot Co. is worlds (and decades) away from its list-mate Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, but it’s an important alternative option for ad men and women seeking their ideal workplace. Sure, it can be hard to break into a business with only two employees—copywriter Michael Steadman (Ken Olin) and graphics guy Elliot Weston (Timothy Busfield)—but that just means there’s more of an opportunity for real responsibility. And anyone who could serve to mediate the friends’ very different personalities would be an asset to the company—one that, in a tough economic climate, Michael & Elliot Co. desperately needs. If you got the job, along with the usual benefits, you’d also get the chance to hang out with their wives and old friends, examine your neuroses and burnish your yuppie cred. There’s only one problem: the company might have some issues with the Department of Labor over their Equal Employment policy. After all, Michael & Elliot Co. seems to have pretty strict age requirements for hiring.
