I have been working at Northlich full-time (More than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
The new leadership is incredible...smart, talented, constantly challenging the staff to be better, to learn and to think much bigger than Cincinnati. And it shows in the work and the awards we win. Our new(ish) COO has been open and transparent with the agency about our strengths - and weaknesses. He is a breath of fresh air and I'm excited to see where he takes this agency.
Management is supportive of personal and professional development, and works hard to enable employees to maintain a good work-life balance. Some reviews say morale is low but I have worked in places where promotions and pay raises are scarce, where the work sucks and people dread coming to work. Northlich is not even close to that place. We have a lot of fun here. Everyone really does get along and the work is better for it. I feel supported and love coming to work every day.
Bottom line: If you want to be comfortable and fly under the radar, you won't like it. Your opinions will be challenged and you'll occasionally work long hours. We're an ad agency. If you don't have the stomach for it, don't work here. If you do, you'll thrive.
Northlich went through a rough patch during the recession. I can't think of an agency that didn't. Unfortunately, it's still recovering and the reputation of this agency lags several years behind the reality. I think former employees that worked at Northlich during its downswing do this agency an injustice by spreading negativity around town. I do think that Northlich will be an agency to watch when the CEO retires and lets the new management take over.
