I worked at Coffey Communications, Inc. full-time (more than an year)Pros
• Small family owned company with genuinely nice people.
• CEO always present and available for conversation.Cons
• Very strict and rigid, micro-managed, little room for creativity.
• Low compensation and raises are hard to come by.
• Little diversity in staff, most employees have been at Coffey for many years and do not work well with non-senior employees.
• Very little blending of ideas and poor communication.
• Co-workers "tell" on one another to superiors for mistakes and issues rather than working together. This goes along with very poor team makeup and collaboration.
• Work load varies greatly, some weeks are overwhelming followed by weeks of no work at all.
• Atmosphere lacks energy and inspiration, very quiet and somber environment with lots of checklists and micro management.
• Very little responsibility and opportunities given to non-senior members of team.
• High turnover rate for new hires.
• New hires are undervalued and under appreciated. I have seen many creative and talented people frustrated and eventually leave Coffey because they were not given an opportunity to express themselves and furher their career.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Study and respect the individuality of each player and handle them accordingly. – John Wooden, UCLA Basketball Coach from 1948 to 1975
I was hired based on my work and achievements of years throughout school, internships and professional employment. Months later I found myself with less responsibility and challenges than any job or internship I had ever had. I was undervalued as an employee based on my age and years of experience. Unfortunately it was to such a degree that I did not learn or grow in my field since I never had much of a challenge to take on. Coffey was important as a financial crutch in my life post recent graduation but it was a road block for career development.
In conclusion, my advice would be to listen to employees, understand their strengths. Work on a more balanced team. Give employees opportunities to grow and shine, not sit and rot.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookApproves of CEO
