    I worked at Anomaly full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Natural light, well stocked kitchen, wood floors, good part of the city. Good pay, room for growth and other work opportunities. Thirsty Thursdays!

    Cons

    There can often be too much work for the amount of people working there. They're a boutique agency that has grown very fast.

    Pros

    -Some kind people that you can be long term friends with.

    Cons

    Cons

    -Read the other reviews and pay a visit to the office. A place where chickens have their heads cut off is not the most conducive learning or working environment.

    -Management makes promises to employees management has no intention of keeping.
    -Executives make promises to clients without checking to see if their employees have "bandwidth" to handle it.

    -There are too many clients and work for the amount of employees. Oh, and they're pitching for more and more business every day even though 2013 would be a year to "solidify process"

    -You're forced to push "emerging tech and media" on clients, not b/c it makes sense or solves the client problem at hand, but b/c the executives have invested in the platform. That's either shady or smart, I haven't decided.

    -There is no room for error here. Miss a deadline for an assignment, usually given to you that day and expected to be turned around by the end of that same day, you're threatened to be fired or demoted or just berated into something lower than a human being.

    -Management are very poor communicators and expect you to read their minds. It's your fault and you've disappointed them when you can't. Also you're being demoted.

    -Be prepared to stay in the dark about everything until accounts go up in flames. Then it's your fault.

    -The "thank you economy" they are so proud of? Consists management not taking responsibility for their mistakes, so you are reprimanded for things that are 9 times out of 10 out of your control. Then they "S&D" you [read as try to buy you off] with chobani yogurt and cereal. An apology would be better or better yet, fair compensation.

    -Little upward mobility. How do you get promoted or raises when there aren't even proper reviews?

    -Just drink the Kool aid. The one laden with lead and lies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have intelligent, hard-working people on your staff - they'd be more likely to stick around if you treated them better. Upper management have no idea of the demands being placed all employees. There was no room for error - even when ridiculous deadlines were imposed. Before you take on new business, make sure your staff has the bandwidth to handle it.

    Consider employees as real people with real lives and career trajectories.

    Start over and try again.
