The people, Summer Fridays, great vacation time, lots of fun things to work on and do during down time.
The creatives are honored and praised for their work when other departments (pick one) are overlooked during town hall meetings. I understand that we're a creative agency and creative SHOULD be acknowledged, but the rest of the groups should be given the chance to be showcased during a town hall meeting once in a while too. Ignoring the other groups doesn't do much to help morale. Also, there are inconsistencies between how departments are treated. In the past, the entire Finance Department has been given cash/gift card bonuses. Why do they get singled out when the rest of us work just as hard. Finance is also going out on a day long cruise on the Detroit River. Again, why are they singled out with this kind of reward when the rest of us work as hard as they do. Finally, salaries are a joke. I know of several people at Team Detroit who have worked there for years and earn salaries in the upper twenties to low thirties and I'm not talking about interns. It's embarrassing and insulting and should be remedied.
Advice to Management
Stop choosing the low hanging fruit from the employee surveys. I'm sure there are some comments about career advancement and training & development, which is why we're being inundated with so many training opportunities (low hanging fruit). Reach for some of the higher stuff by addressing the bigger concern that's a common thread through a vast majority of the agency-- salaries. And do it for real. Don't use town hall meetings to (falsely) lead us to believe that raises happen twice a year and everyone gets them when most of us know that's not true. I'd rather hear the truth than get my hopes up because you're telling us what you think we want to hear then not following through with it.
