    Former Employee - Director in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    The people made this an amazing and inspiring place to work! There are smart, creative and fun coworkers who will make your Monday-Friday seem a lot more enjoyable but also everyone knows when it is time to focus and get the job done. Talent overflows!

    Cons

    There is a tendency to work folks to the bone and if someone "gets the job done" then some major flaws may be overlooked (in other words, they tend to believe the ends justify the means)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are amazing - from mailroom to C-suite - so treat them as well as they treat the company. Results shouldn't be obtained "at all costs" but keep on doing a great job hiring talent and great candidates!

    I worked at Alloy Media full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for travel & experience. Lots of responsibility at a young age, I've carried this with me throughout my career. I also loved the office culture; highly developed here.

    Cons

    Extremely hard to get promoted and the pay is a little low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote folks from within and don't be afraid to pay them a bit more; you'll keep the good ones and attract more talent. Overturn was a bit of an issue here.

    I worked at Alloy Media full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Great people, everyone is friendly
    -Middle management is just a pleasure to work with
    -Fun parties and company events
    -Work environment is lax

    Cons

    Biggest problem at Alloy are the Executives ( upper management )

    -Executives are cocky and full of ego
    -Executives are insanely hard to work with
    -Executives dont care about people under them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO needs to really understand the damage his Executives buddies are doing. I have seen nearly half of the Alloy Staff leave because of the Executives in my 2 year including myself.

    I have been working at Alloy Media full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Casual dress code and summer fridays. Everybody is friendly and willing to keep communication open.

    Cons

    feels like there is lack of direction. There isn't a well define core value. They only jump on the next hot thing, seemingly without a strategy. It's stressful adjusting to many acquisitions within such a short time. The workflow changes. If you are not familiar with everyone's working style is hard to keep up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's important to have a solid direction. We need a goal to strive for!

    Pros

    Same format every time. You can depend upon how the expectations.

    Cons

    Sometimes they wanted to execute bad marketing ideas that don't translate into the various markets. It's often a lot of handing out flyers that no one wants.

    Pros

    Lots of young people - good for recent grads to make friends. They give you space to move to different departments and you can find opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Work itself is a little depressing - monotonous / boring. Peers aren't that enthusiastic about their jobs because of this...which kind of snowballs. Professional workspace, but cube-culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more incentives for employees, show more appreciation for their work.

    Pros

    Summer Fridays are the best perks and the people can be fun too. Most of the mid level staffers are very helpful

    Cons

    It's very hard to make and money in sales because of how commissions are structured and how the accounts are divided

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentivize your sellers!

    I have been working at Alloy Media full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    work load is usually light, most don't come in until 9:30, relaxed environment, big name clients that will look good on your resume

    Cons

    company's focus is always changing, upper management does not communicate with staff, many employees with inflated titles aren't qualified for their job, very high turnover rate, no culture, low morale

    if you are looking for a place where you can get by with doing very little work for very little pay then you'll be happy at alloy. but if you are looking for a place where you can learn and grow, you are better off somewhere else.

    everything is always changing, companies are acquired and sold off, as a mid level employee the only way you find out of these changes is through office gossip. one day you might show up and your department no longer exists, surprise! here's a new title!

    many people in upper management are there because they've been with the company for a long time when it was focused on other things and aren't capable of doing their current jobs. all lower level employees leave within a year or two.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A long term strategy - GET ONE! It seems like you are always trying to jump on the next hot trend without adequately training or even notifying employees. Communicate with your employees or they will keep leaving.

    I worked at Alloy Media full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really young, casual working environment, summer Fridays, generally flexible hours, lots of perks (celeb sightings, free tickets to events), awesome holiday party and the occasional happy hour and group dinners.

    Cons

    The morale is so low because the turnover rate is so high. Few people stay for more than a year or two because the management keeps changing. It's just very unorganized and for a company focused on youth media and marketing, it should be more fun and less stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the mid-level employees. Pay employees of ALL levels more in salary (except the VPS etc) and they be more likely to stay. Stop acquiring new companies and put that money and investment into the talented people you already have.
