    89 Degrees

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros89 Degrees has the necessary, high quality technology resources to compete as a top agency in the data age.

    The start up is flexible, scrappy, and determined. The team behind it believes in a consistent can do mentality. The company constantly is looking at ways to improve.

    ConsThe knowledge share potential could be increased. On the plus side, this means that there is a ton of experienced team members to learn from.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    89 Degrees has no vision

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSadly no pros left at this company. Most great people have already left 89 Degrees.

    Cons89 Degrees used to be an ok place to work for, then they hired a bunch of sales and managers that were laid off from eDialog then everything changed for the worst.
    Basically more then half the company left after these changes.

    VPs at 89 Degrees are not there because they are qualified, they're there because they invested. Most of these VPs don't even understand the business 89 Degrees is in.

    CEO is a guy who only comes to you when he needs something, other than that, you may go for months without seeing or talking to him, even though 89 Degrees is such a tiny company and you'd expect people would talk to each other more often.

    Too much politics go on within the management team.
    They eat lunch in their area and talk crap about other people.
    This would be ok but when you see VPs getting involved in these lunches/trash talks about other individuals and agreeing, then all of the sudden, these VPs start hating some individuals because they were subject to their lunch conversations This just shows how unprofessional this company is.

    To get promoted, you have to be part of these politics otherwise, you'll never get promoted for your hard work.

    Advice to Senior Managementgrow up and be professional

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
