    I worked at Catapult Marketing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - I came on during the time of FBNA when there was a very strong bond between coworkers, teams and leadership. The wiliness for teams to pick each other up and pitch in is always present. - Great brands across the board.

    Cons

    - Lack of sr. leadership or an unwillingness to get involved to solve issues. Leaving directors, and managers to try and resolve issues without support from sr. leadership. - Gossip kills. There is a fog over many of the offices. Building animosities for offices other than the one you work within. ie. Minneapolis vs. Westport. Bentonville vs. Minneapolis. and so on. - No true playing field across offices. Leading to development issues or lack of development because offices ARE NOT equal in their interpretation of development, salaries, and promotions. Minneapolis creative DOES NOT have creative sr. leadership. No true process for promotion and/or development. Creatives across offices are rated differently leading to uncertainty as to what is required to elevate to the next level. - Resource restricted!!!! Creative departments are severely over worked and lack support from sr. leadership. - Salaries ARE NOT competitive. Additionally, they are not equal across offices severely impacting creative turnover. Sr. leadership is unwilling to resolve the issue. - Simply put. Sr. leadership IS NOT willing to fix issues across offices because they themselves are internally fighting over control for promotions... leaving the mid level directors to resolve issues without support.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your leadership issues. Ignoring them does not help nor does it set an example to follow. We lost many strong strategic leaders because of the gossip, lack of support and internal fighting at an SVP and above leadership level.

    Pros

    Work on Broadcast. Any account that isn't Frontier.

    Cons

    Stay away from the Frontier account. Revolving door, no one stays more than a year. Plan to work many nights until midnight. No room to grow. You dont get to work on anything else but Frontier.

    Advice to Management

    Move people around accounts to avoid burnout.

    Pros

    Incredibly nice people to work with. Cool office.

    Cons

    Long hours, tough turn arounds, at times a lot of confusion from senior management

    Advice to Management

    Map out career paths, as well as join creative and account side to be one team, not two fighting each other.

    I worked at Catapult Marketing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are great and the work is top notch

    Cons

    Work life balance is horrible and there is no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't reward positive contributions, they reward cronies. Of course, this was mainly due to an ECD that is no longer there, so my opinion may not be valid any longer.

    relaxed atmosphere, signing many new clients. Great co-workers who are willing to help.

    Cons

    There is not a standard workflow from the account teams to the development team. Account teams will not bring in the tech team before making decisions.
