    I have been working at Anthem Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Small agency atmosphere promotes collaboration, organic idea generation. Casual work environment, good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Smaller office means you need to create opportunities for yourself within the accounts. A hangover from previous management/acquisitions sometimes creeps in, but for the most part, it is a growing office with lots of potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the growth and momentum, continue to challenge the status quo

    I worked at Anthem Worldwide as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Cool, laid back office vibe and good company benefits.

    Cons

    The company is not upfront with a lot of things both to their employees and their clients. They source out their production overseas and lie about it. Management does not give feedback when they need to and does not take accountability for their decisions. Instead, they will blame and cut lose their employees when company is not doing well financially.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair and be honest.

    Room for improvement

    I worked at Anthem Worldwide

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice people, it's a cool office, there's always a lot of food to sample, you are working on well known brands.

    Cons

    It is unfortunately a very corporate environment. Salaries can be very stagnant and reviews are less frequent than they should be.

    Benefits of large company but operates like a start up, with all the pros and cons of each

    I worked at Anthem Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Anthem is held by Schawk, which is a large public company. For an employee, this means benefits like good healthcare coverage, dental coverage, and 401k. The NYC studio itself is nice, and there is an overall sense of a start-up-like mentality, even though it's owned by a larger company.

    Cons

    Since it operates like a start-up, deadlines are tight and designers are expected to work overtime. However, since it's not actually a start-up, there is no sense that there is a reward for all the time put in (and, in fact, there isn't, in the end). Also, on the design end, there is an overall "factory" mentality in which the designers are simply expected to produce, produce, produce without ever really being part of the overall team, and their opinions/concerns expressed to management tend fall on deaf ears. This leads to many disgruntled, burned out employees who are eventually forced to leave. In addition, the pay is low, and only ten days of vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees, especially the designers. Listen to them and let them be part of the team. Reward them for a job well done or for overtime, either with increased pay/promotion or more vacation. Otherwise, they will burn out and leave.

    I have been working at Anthem Worldwide

    Pros

    Your coworkers are very talented great people. They're fun to work with and spend time with outside of work.

    Cons

    The management is terrible. They only seek to further their own interests (at the expense of employees and the company).
    The benefits are pretty bad too, we are owned by a huge corporation and have so-so health insurance, 10 days off a year, 5 sick days, only the really big holidays, NO BONUS, and during our annual reviews were told that was not the time to discuss raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The reason people are quitting is your terrible leadership. Employees are people, not just tools for you, you need to treat us with respect and consideration. The reason we aren't making more money is you're not providing the resources we need and you're wasting our money on an MD who doesn't contribute anything, two creative directors who never have time for anyone (with 7 designers do we need 2?), and a studio manager you've turned into an office manager/secret police.
    You have a pool of talented hard working people and you have no appreciation for them.

    Pros

    - wages are ok- opw is nice. Benefits are OK, but getting worse every year that goes by.

    Cons

    many too many unqualified base management!!!_ employee surveys taken yearly, yield NO appreciative changes, furthermore, they don't tell you the TRUTH, about the survey RESULTS, either..
    They may briefly reference it, but pretty much blow it off, relative to letting the employees know the TRUE responses. Poor training of new hires. as most have virtually NO experience, and are stupid once they are on the floor. Sorry to be so blunt, because it's not their fault, it's poor training from those who know nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's hopeless, as will only fall on deaf ears, as always.
