I have been working at Commonwealth full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
- Big work. High visibility. Smart people.
- There's a lot of camaraderie among the in-house folks, as the client can be a little difficult.
- Things are looking up. No matter what has happened in the past, everyone is starting to look forward and concentrate on the future.
- It's what you make it. While it feels a little corporate sometimes, your attitude about your work will be the ultimate determining factor in what you get out of the experience. This is a place for the self-starters, the self-motivated. You can do great things if you want to!Cons
- There are some leftover bad attitudes from the merger. They'll drop off eventually, but you can sense it sometimes. To these people, I say, GET. OVER. IT. It will be healthier for you if you do.
- More focused on traditional work. Not a ton of interest in digital. This will change! But that's how it is for now.
- Senior leadership comes around like a blue moon and talks a big talk. But when they leave, things calm down and the people who run the day-to-day can continue concentrating on the work.Advice to ManagementAdvice
The big meetings might seem like a good idea as a way to raise morale and bring everyone together, but to the employees who already feel voiceless and powerless, it makes senior leadership seem a little out of touch. Trust in your foot soldiers - they are keeping this place afloat and are producing groundbreaking work for the client. Stop changing the name! We're all here for the common good and have a lot of desire to contribute.RecommendsPositive Outlook
