I worked at Capstrat full-time

ProsGood work/life balance and strong managerial interaction. Almost to a fault. Everyone is very nice and Capstrat can be a very fun place to work.

ConsIt's a stellar agency that does what it does well but as a creative I found it stifling. Most direction is dictated by the account side of the house which can be very frustrating.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring it back in to the creative side of the house.

A good variety of clients, industries, and people.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

I have been working at Capstrat full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCapstrat is full of intelligent, driven , inquisitive people. They come from varied backgrounds in Public Affairs, Public Relations, Design, Interactive, Social Media, Writing/Content, etc. They range from 20-somethings to 60-somethings. They all have one thing in common, they want to help their clients solve critical problems and grow their business. I have seen many people come to Capstrat and really climb the ladder. Not everyone can cut it, because the workload can be demanding, but those that give it their all are certainly rewarded for their efforts.

ConsYou have to look long and hard to find something to complain about at Capstrat. The benefits, compensation, training budget, PTO, health care, etc. are all more than fair. If there were one complaint, it would probably be from some client teams that are having growing pains and are buried under the workload. Those teams will grow though and the load will get lighter when they do. Capstrat is notorious for slowly hiring, because they only hire the best. Seems like a smart growth strategy to me.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up. In the worst of times you have still managed to grow at a rapid clip. You are doing many things right. Be aware of where the growing pains are most severe and attempt to alleviate those more quickly.

Great place to work

Vice President (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

I have been working at Capstrat

ProsThe people are very talented and dedicated, very interesting work and a strong senior management team. The company truly cares about delivering quality work for our clients while placing their employees above everyone and anything else. You have the opportunity to wear a number of different hats to learn and try new things while improving your skill sets.

ConsYou really need to think long and hard to find downsides of working at Capstrat. I think if I had to say anything, just like many other talented and growing companies, sometimes there is just not enough hours in the day to get the work done. But I guess in the grand scheme of things, there could be a lot worse downsides than this.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to empower your employees.
