    I worked at Chempetitive Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team, with an easy going, friendly culture that loves team building activities. Everyone is passionate about the work that they do.

    Cons

    They're not too concerned with getting interns up to speed with current projects, and occasionally task you with cliche intern work that's mindless, and doesn't require any creative, or critical thinking skilss.

    Advice to Management

    Be present more, and get to know your employees better.

    I worked at Chempetitive Group full-time

    Pros

    They have beer and the random leftover food from meetings. Thats it! DO NOT WORK HERE!

    Cons

    The business sucks. Jeff is the only nice guy in the Chicago office because he is never there. The rest of management (Murad & Steve), creative team and account directors are back stabbers. The digital team uses templates they buy from stock websites. Not original work! All recycled from jobs that did not sell.

    Advice to Management

    You will never be a true agency because of the bad habits you are passing on to your employees. Be honest with your employees. Do not say one thing and do another. Let the turtles free! Animal control would have a field day!

    I worked at Chempetitive Group as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly, fun culture in a casual atmosphere. It's relatively easy to leave the job at work. Flexible work environment.

    Cons

    Creative work for a risk averse clientele can be demotivating. Management preaches "we're a family" but struggles to live up to its ideals. Difficult to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Know what kind of company you want to be and don't be afraid to be honest with your employees.

    I worked at Chempetitive Group as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Jeff, Murad and Steve create an environment where you can ask questions, get constructive feedback and move forward. They empower account managers and creative staff to think about campaigns and ask the tough questions.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to do! But the great environment keeps it manageable. There are lots of opportunities for fun too.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on rockin'!

    I have been working at Chempetitive Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart team of people who are willing to work hard to keep clients happy. True believers in work life balance but without sacrificing the quality of work being provided. Youthful positive attitude that goes from the top down and the bottom up.

    Cons

    Relatively small organization so growth opportunity is not limitless.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to your core and keep doing it. Best place I've ever worked.
