  1.  

    awesome former private company that lost much of its appeal after being bought out and assimilated into TWC Media

    I worked at Adlink full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Holdovers from before buyout tend to be professional, hardworking, passionate (also some of the new hires); great people to learn from and many just great people in general; when I was here it was the people who really made this job special
    - generally try to promote from within
    - free cable
    - nice office

    Cons

    - when i left in 2011, morale was steadily dropping as TWC corporate culture strangled much of the unique, fun spirit Adlink the private company once enjoyed
    - smaller office so not a ton of opportunities for advancement

    Company doesn't promote from within.

    Nice place to work... If you never want a promotion from decade to decade.

    I worked at Adlink

    Pros

    Company once made a lot of money, and compensated with a lot of money. For the people they like, the promotions are almost limitless. Adlink threw some of THE BEST Christmas Parties (Mansion in the Hollywood Hills, Mansion in Beverly Hills, etc...). Given a great deal of autonomy to be your own boss, and set your own schedule (within limits).

    Cons

    For the people senior managers were neutral or didn't get along with, those employees could forget about a promotion entirely. During my last year with this company of 135 employees that made 300 Million Dollars that year in advertising, it was really sad to listen to all the senior managers running around claiming that "Adlink was doing terrible, and had to make some severe cutbacks". Please. If you were in a technical position, expect to spend 50, 60, or 70 hours working a week, only to be never told how good of a job you were doing, or shown even the smallest amount of gratitude for your hard efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For a company that makes millions upon millions a year with only rent, insurance, utilities, and employees as a cost with no manufacturing costs of any kind at all - Lighten Up...! Advertising is like free money. Why not spread it around a bit, and stop acting like the company's facing the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
