    I worked at Adknowledge full-time

    Pros

    >>> cool perks like free soda and beers, free lunches, no dress code, unlimited vacation days >>> open office atmosphere with darts, pool table, etc in the break room >>> fast-paced, challenging, results driven environment with very bright folks >>> involved in many online marketing verticals, always an opportunity to learn more >>> great health benefits and engaging wellness program >>> leader in the industry, always looking ahead over the horizon >>> for external candidates the pay is very competitive >>> lots of really tremendous people, most people leave with a handful of really close, new friends

    Cons

    >>> references to specifically solicited Glassdoor reviews are well-known, notice clusters of exceedingly positive reviews created on the same day (see 11/18/14, 7/30/13, 4/22/13) >>> feedback is openly disputed by managers and not acted upon, attempts to band-aid issues results in same issues recurring >>> impact of potential quarterly bonus is overly optimistic goals, lack of means to achieve them, and commission plan changes every quarter, sometimes within weeks of quarter's close >>> ongoing acquisitions and reorganizations create aura of instability, constant fear of being on the chopping block, any team could be mission critical one day and laid off the next >>> performance strategies frequently toe the line of ethical standards and eschew industry best practices, short-term plans often sabotage long term goals and growth >>> 'clique'-y atmosphere and lack of accountability for individual behavior, general feeling HR is more of office manager in nature, doesn't really handle employee issues, creates pervasive 'sweep under the rug' mentality >>> video is king as it is the clear future of the industry, but the frequent love and admiration for video creates 'left-out' and unappreciated feeling for other teams >>> internal promotions are infrequent and come at the expense of salary in line with peers hired externally to the same role

    Advice to Management

    There is a difference between creating a more positive culture and trying to window dress the current one. Putting lipstick on a pig doesn't change the pig. Adding more perks and fun events is great, but won't have the intended impact without also addressing well documented underlying issues. Being more open to employee feedback, and addressing the issues would give you a much better pulse on front line morale and go a long way towards the goal of improving the culture.
