    Pros

    Collective Bias is a rapidly growing company with locations all over the US. It's large enough and established enough now to provide job security while still keeping an open and friendly atmosphere. The employees are continuously involved with community and charity projects with plenty of opportunity to jump in and help if you'd like.

    Cons

    Depending on which department you join, there may be limited potential to move up from your current position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to see salary raises as a part of the yearly evaluations. As it is, there's no framework for when or how salaries and promotions take place.

    Pros

    Direct team members were great. Great working atmosphere. Pet friendly, ping pong, snacks and drinks all make going to work a little nicer. At times there were glimpses of innovation.

    Cons

    Technical employees are under compensated and under valued as assets. The current theme seems to be sell, sell, sell. A huge focus is put on the sales team and whatever they say goes (for the most part) which undermines some other initiatives in other departments. Overall, this is not a great place for a technical position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on developing and retaining technical talent.

    Pros

    The work is challenging, but there is a lot of flexibility.

    Cons

    The culture has changed tremendously, but it hasn't been addressed to the public in a open way. The energy feels disjointed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the leadership and make sure they're in the right position to provide direction for their teams.

    Pros

    CB offers great perks and offers a great group of teammates. I've never worked with a better group. Their number one benefit is the people you get to surround yourself with everyday!

    Cons

    Pay disparity is a big one, and with such a young company, people talk. It stinks to know that you got the highest reviews and yet have the lowest pay among your peers (especially when you're afraid to ask for more money).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Might be time to right size your salaries... Sometimes the squeaky wheel getting the grease is not a good strategy. Your quieter, more productive and effective employees could feel disenfranchised and demoralized when they're not given the same consideration.

    Pros

    Love the people, the transparency, the professionalism and the respect. I've never worked for a company where the executive leadership team was as open, honest and sincere with their employees. CB is a great company for those who are looking to grow as a professional, have fun and build something new.

    Cons

    CB is located in Bentonville/Rogers. If you live in Fayetteville...the commute is the worst. Resources are getting better, but as with all growing companies, we're spread thin sometimes. There's no one that doesn't take their work home with them. I don't think this is a con, but a testament to how much everyone likes working at CB. If you have a problem with working after hours, CB isn't for you.

    Thank you for the honest feedback! We're looking forward to moving into our new Rogers office location, which should shave 15-20 minutes off of the commute for Fayetteville residents. :)

    Pros

    Great opportunity in the fastest growing area of shopper marketing.
    Great Company culture that truly embraces the importance of its people.
    Great product solution (value proposition).
    Great people.

    Cons

    Due to explosive business growth, the Company has outgrown its physical space and most people's bandwidth is stretched fairly thin. The Company is aggressively hiring to address this issue and moving to new space this summer, but right now space is tight

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It will be important to retain our unique corporate culture while putting in place the critical infrastructure and adding the additional personel necessary to maintain our growth
