    I have been working at Accuen

    Cons

    with such a large amount of vacation days accompanied with multiple days off makes it hard to use all the days you earn

    I have been working at Accuen

    Pros

    The salaries and benefits packages are typically pretty good, as compared with other similar companies. You will have a lot of freedom to try new ideas and have your voice heard in meetings.

    Cons

    MAJOR disconnects amongst leadership, HR, and functional teams. HR and Finance tend to 'run the show there.' Company changes leadership overly frequently and does not communicate out to employees in a timely fashion, if at all. The true vision and mission of Accuen is very muddy - and employees wouldn't know what either of these were if asked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revisit why the company was created to begin with and go 'back to basics' in terms of organizational structure and how to run a company. Right now it is the blind leading the blind.

    I worked at Accuen

    Pros

    Accuen is the trading desk for one of the biggest marketing groups in the world. It provides opportunities to work with global accounts with support from sister agencies. Good compensations.

    Cons

    Since the change of senior management in September 2011, Accuen has gone downhill. There is no culture nor employee evaluation systems within the company. Important issues, changes of the company directions are not communicated at all to the staff. Accuen started as the forefront of new digital media investment agency for Omnicom, now under the new leadership, it is going back to an old-fashioned, labor-intensive factory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen to what the employees say. They are the people who are closest to the clients, look further ahead for the future of the company instead of letting competent people go because they are better compensated.

    I have been working at Accuen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some really great people have been hired to work with some great backgrounds. There is a great mix of people and management seem receptive to employees.
    Work / life balance is good - depending on time of year/accounts you can generally work 9-5 if need be.

    Cons

    Needs a better set of tools for handling the operational side of the business.
    Better data management tools are needed as the company expands the workload will increase dramatically on the operations teams.
    Needs more of a tech company vibe in the office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in tools

    I worked at Accuen

    Pros

    Accuen offers a competitive salary, but be aware that could be a loss of job security.

    Cons

    Distasteful new management; Upper management over promises and under delivers; no development plans; lack of any culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, they know Accuen's clients better than you do as they work with them every day.
