Amazing People, Difficult time to work there

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Big Communications

ProsBIG is full of talented people who are amazing to work with. It's a very forward thinking environment where you are allowed to wear jeans to work, and even bring your dog. Management is very flexible and accommodating. The work is also quite rewarding the majority of the time.

ConsBIG is at a transitioning point with a lot of new senior management. Morale is low at times along with heightened stress at some points. The different departments are also very separate and sometimes don't communicate well with one another. Client expectations are very high, and at times difficult to manage.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet all of the departments in sync with one another and keep morale up.

It was a great experience.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Big Communications full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe people were the only reason I stayed as long as I did. They truly were teammates.

ConsExecutive management either didn't know what was going on beneath them or they chose not to do anything about the moral.

A great place to be... a tough place to grow...

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

I have been working at Big Communications

ProsIt is a really fun, innovative, and creative group of people. Big still has the 'family' feeling of a small company, but all the benefits of working at a larger company. The office is amazing and one can feel creative just by being in it. One of the biggest focuses at Big is to find people who not only can do their job extremely well, but fit in with an over all culture. This means that everyone all has the same type of goals, dreams, and aspirations as well as very similar personality types. This makes for great company events and makes it really easy to create really great friendships.

ConsThere, currently, is no structure or plan in place to promote employee development and growth through the company. Basically, one can come in and work in a fun and amazing place, but once they get tired, bored, or no longer challenged with their current position in the company, it is almost impossible to move, shift, or grow within the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe senior management at Big is amazing. They are always looking out for the employees and have a genuine concern for everyone in the company. The only feedback I would give would be to focus more on employee development and not stick to such stringent advancement schedules or raise criteria.
