    I worked at Hamilton Communications full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful office, great benefits, flexible hours, competitive salary, fun co-workers, they'll pay for continuing ed classes. Things have changed for the better in terms of the abuse of management; the owner now keeps to himself and is even helpful at times. The company is small and lean and with that comes open communication between colleagues, which is something that lacked in the past.

    Cons

    Money is coming in but there isn't much to show for it. The technology is in much need of an upgrade; computers are from 5 years ago and the server is ancient. There could be more clarity on when the employees could expect reviews, salary increases and/or bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more candid and open with your employees. Bonuses and/or salary increases would be nice. Also, add a game room or Friday happy hour to offer some relief to the employees.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Hamilton Communications in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    No one gets in as an employee, I was told - you are freelance for six months. The problem with this is that, whether you are freelancing to be hired or freelancing as a temp gig, you don't get payed. OK, it's in the 90-120 day window but seriously? And don't complain or it gets sent to the back of the bus.
