    Phenomenal People, Great company culture

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Poway, CA

    ProsIntegrated approach to marketing, the company places a really strong emphasis on quality, people are considered the company's most valued asset. The majority of employees have been at the company 5+ years

    Consoccasional lack of communication within teams can make meeting deadlines extremely chaotic

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

    Horrible, no sense of management giving proper direction

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany Culture within the company is good, I get along with everyone there

    ConsAfter working there for so many years, I've seen the way we handle clients and it's not proper. There needs to be more attention in detail, which they lack.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to have open discussion, understand criticism. The CEO is nice, but never there, half of management calls in sick or leaves early. What example are you setting?

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

    Workaholic, high-stress culture with minimal benefits

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Poway, CA

    ProsMost of the employees are really nice people.

    ConsWork/life balance is poor and management does not care. Salaried employees are frequently expected to work nights and weekends to meet poorly planned deadlines. Management is more about playing political games than providing results. Good people are fired fairly often without notice but many leave on their own.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The truth that no one likes to admit out loud

    (Current Employee)

    ProsThe real unfortunate thing about Anderson is there are some very intelligent people who work here, but management doesn't care to tap into their strengths so...those smart individuals eventually move on which is why they're always hiring.

    ConsNo real opportunity for job growth
    Lack of work/life balance
    Most of the management is out of touch
    Morale is extremely low among everyone
    No innovation

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt seems like the more competent you are, the more they pile on you and allow the inefficient ones to get paid the same or more to do much less. There isn't much positive reinforcement however there is a lot of time spent making sure every error is addressed. All the processes are behind the times and all they do is keep creating new procedures for people to follow that contribute to the immense amount of overtime hours I've endured. They call all their procedures "quality control" but there is no limit to all the time wasting activities that need to be completed in order to get a simple mail job out the door. The morale is consistently low yet no one in management seems to care enough to take action because they themselves aren't excited to come here each day either. There seems to be such simple solutions to boost the overall discouraged tone, but with the current decision makers things will remain the same.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
