    Pros

    It a paycheck
    Home office
    You can be lazy and do nothing if you want
    You can hide if you want

    Cons

    HR - no help
    29 execs let go by old CEO
    try to get paid on expenses - ugh
    customers leaving left and right
    SE help - not there
    headhunters / search firms - ask them
    ask an idea person what they think

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of the old boys club set up by old CEO
    get rid of old reps that have not sold a thing
    cut out the turnover of new hires
    grow up so you don't continue to lose customers
    drinking is more important than business

    Pros

    the folks on the factory floor are great... the clients are great...

    Cons

    too much drama... constant gossip and senior management is the primary cause of most issues... no one is truly "the boss" because the company is owned by someone else... it's basically a free-for-all on most things... clients are the last thing management worries about

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    admit your shortcomings... learn to adapt... stop the drama

    Interactive has the potential to be the best but not with current leadership.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good benefit package, paid vacations and sick time.

    Cons

    The leadership in interactive is inexperienced, uneducated and completely in over their heads. Anyone with talent and experience starts looking for another job within 6 months of hire. The company frowns upon new ideas, efforts to improve or any "change" whatsoever (even though they will repeatedly tell you in the interview that they are looking for new, fresh ideas from people with experience to help them improve.) No support for employees with hardware or software. Management made many promises during the interview and offer discussions that they never kept. A tremendous amount of politics, backstabbing, gossip, immaturity and attacking coworkers in order to mask their own inability and dysfunction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend that the new parent company make every employee reapply for their jobs. 90% of the leadership has been there 9+ years simply because no other company would ever hire them at the same level based on their resume.

    Pros

    Good benefits. You have some autonomy if you can handle the cons of working here. Great clients.

    Cons

    Management takes advantage of lower pay employees who are willing to consistently put in overtime. There is a "you're with us or against us" attitude from managers and employees are afraid to speak up. Billability and profits are more important than creative vision and quality work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new managers with outside agency experience.
