    Current Employee - Grunt Worker in Detroit, MI

    I have been working at Commonwealth full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get a new mug every time the company changes names (hence most employees have a set), a handful of good talent left over from the Goodby days, Summer Fridays, the week off between Xmas and New Year's (if you're lucky).

    Cons

    Non-existent leadership across the board. Creative is run by a terrible trio we'll call Larry, Curly and Moe. Larry, when present in the office, micromanages. Curly and Moe ignore all the work that needs to be approved. Deadlines are constantly missed. Morale is non-existent. Creatives are viewed as insubordinate if they express an idea or concept that's beyond Larry, Curly and Moe's narrow scope of vision. Campaigns are developed as part of a deck at the last minute without any thought or insight. Those who are at the top are totally blind to the fact that the office is about to implode. The office space itself is inadequate. It's loud and dark. The few existing conference rooms are always filled. There's no place to take a phone call. People constantly complain of headaches and eye strain. Nobody has any hope for a raise. Computers don't have enough memory. Reviews are promised and never given. When employees quit, leadership doesn't care. They seem to think everybody is replaceable, yet they never replace talent. Instead, they load the extra work on the talent that remains. Process is a joke, people make it up as they go along. The whole place is a joke that's not funny at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hellllllooooooooo? Is there ANYONE there..........?! If you can here me, GET A CLUE. If you don't open your eyes, there's going to be a walk out. Go back and read the culture surveys again. We don't want more food. We don't want more mugs. We want to be valued as professionals and treated with respect. We want leadership that's QUALIFIED -- someone who is willing to read a book on how to manage people. If you don't take action, either we will lose the account or everyone will quit all at once.
