    I have been working at 360i full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Smart people that want to be great
    Access to cutting edge digital marketing best practices and tools
    Great place to start out and learn
    Interesting, Fun Coworkers. Lot of opportunities for post work hang outs
    Great leadership at the top. Our outlook is looking up.

    Cons

    Pay isn't the best. When people leave, its frequently for more money.
    Experiencing some growing pains as we become a bigger agency and restructure departments.

    I have been working at 360i

    Pros

    Tons of opportunity to learn from really smart people. You get the chance to work on a lot of different brands and explore news ways of interacting with the consumer. Everyone is smart and young. They are all hungry to produce great work.

    Cons

    Can be free for all so if you are the introvert type, don't go there.

    The Winds Have Shifted at 360i (and Not for the Better)

    I have been working at 360i full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Laid-back work environment
    - Sexy clients
    - Industry accolades

    Cons

    - Employees are treated as replaceable (there's a rotating door of employees)
    - Poor managers who aren't interested in their subordinates' growth
    - Constant shifts in direct managers
    - Inexperienced employees in high-ranking positions
    - Promotions are arbitrary (some who have been proven to not be good at their jobs get promoted, while hard-working and experienced individuals who have delivered results get passed over)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees. Make them feel like they're worth something. Reward those who work hard, have gone above and beyond, and have delivered results with better pay and growth opportunities. (Management thinks it's doing these things already, but it's not paying very close attention.)

    I have been working at 360i full-time

    Pros

    The people are amazing. The majority of the people working at 360i are creative and passionate about their jobs. They put in lots of time because they want to, not necessarily because they have to. We work in a nice office with lots of nice perks but no one takes advantage of this or acts overly privileged. I've never seen so many people hang out at the office after hours and on the weekends. My co-workers and myself included have made lasting friendships here. When 360i tells you something is going to happen, it usually does. They have their finger on the pulse of the industry and bend with the changes. They've won tons of awards and take part in lots of industry events.

    Cons

    Upper management is changing. Lots of strong leaders have left or have taken different roles. The acquisition with Dentsu for 360i and Steak was not smooth. Employees were confused about their titles and responsibilities, and some still are confused. A lot of turnover has happened over the few months and junior-mid level employees are leaving due to the uncomfortable atmosphere. These are the people who work the hardest to keep the accounts running smoothly. I fear things will begin to crumble as these turnovers continue.

    Nostalgia for what once was

    I have been working at 360i full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -You will leave prepared to work in any type of work environment
    -You will likely be one of the better trained people in your industry
    -You'll get experience working across a wide variety of clients
    -You'll get to work with incredibly talented, smart, creative people
    -You'll make great friends

    Cons

    -You will be treated like a slave
    -You will have no work-life balance
    -You will be underpaid
    -You will be made promises that will take forever to actually happen
    -The work is monotonous, same set of deliverables over and over again until you burn out (no one cares if you do, by the way)
    -You'll be treated like a cog in a wheel, even when you go above and beyond

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Recognize the potential of the people who put in the work
    -Look beyond titles and more closely at what people are willing to do for your company
    -Free beer and bagels are not substitutes for a higher salary
    -Go back to the way you used to be

    Final note: 360i treats their employees like they're replaceable, when in fact, they've adopted the same values and exhibit the same behaviors of every other ad agency in the industry, the same ones 360i, at one time, rejected.
    Take a look in the mirror, 360i. You have become replaceable.

    a company with great clients, but shady management

    I worked at 360i full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Awesome clients.
    Fun people to work with.
    Dynamic Energy.
    Innovative work.
    Free beer.

    Cons

    The shadiest management I have ever worked with in my career. A quarter of the people I used to work with have been fired because of changes to the company. One minute everything is fine, and then the next minute you will be reminded that anyone is expandable regardless of the work you put in. It's truly unprofessional how they carry this out, and it poisons the water around the office. It's why no one wants to stay longer than a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nurture employee development, instead of clearing house. It affects the psyches of every team working at the company. Take notice of the hard work every employee puts in.

    Pros

    • Everyone shares the same pain so you'll get along great!
    • Free Beer
    • Resume-ish clients

    Cons

    See list I mentioned above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your people. They are working weekends and stay late a lot. After you learn their names pay them a competitive salary.

    I have been working at 360i full-time

    Pros

    Office culture is great, people are friendly and easy to work with. Challenging work, will test and help prepare you for the digital industry.

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement, compensation below average and training should be mandatory for all new hires. 401K match should be comparable with industry standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! May want to look at tuition reimbursement for better retention.
