    Great company coupled with good culture makes it fun place to work!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAccuen creates a great company culture with fun activities, happy hours and just all around enjoyable place to work. With a laid back yet busy fast paced atmosphere surrounding the office all employees enjoy the chance to be successful and lend their voice to the work they do.

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

    Not the best time and place to work at

    Anonymous At Accuen (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsAccuen 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.

    ConsSince 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 Senior ManagementReally 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    What a mess...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsMAJOR 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 Senior ManagementRevisit 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.

    Fast paced and dynamic - growing quickly

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSome 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.

    ConsNeeds 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 Senior ManagementInvest more in tools

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poor New Management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
