Marcelo, I would go for:

you get a Klamath if....

only after checking with the client whether that is a current expression in English. Otherwise I am in favour of spanruss05's advice.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Since it turns out that this isn't really Mexican Spanish, I've closed the question (without grading). In the end, I translated it as "they give you praise worthy of the [Landor] Klamath if you work 14 hours a day" (since the English-speaking executives in San Franciso may not use the name of their first headquarters in the same way (i.e., with the verb "give") as their personnel in Mexico City. In any event, I explained this to the agency, who I'm confident will follow-up accordingly. Thanks, Angelo, and regards from the US :-)
