    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

    Pros

    Collective Bias is a community centered company, whether it be the bloggers or the people that work here.
    Fair wages, great benefits, 401k and fair amounts of paid vacation and sick leave.
    Innovative work space environments- whether you work remotely or in one of the offices, or both you won't be locked in a cube.

    Cons

    Telecommuting provides interesting challenges- while the company is community focused, you can easily get locked behind a computer screen with busy days and dynamic campaigns or projects.
    The company is relatively young, so growing pains occur, especially as client bids change and the work needed adapts.

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere, transparent, fun and challenging! They offer a flexible work environment that focuses on productivity. Exciting pace that brings new innovation each and every day! Leadership jumps right in with the team to ensure no one is left behind.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons. I'd say you would need to be self motivated and love to work in a team environment in order to thrive here. It's an all hands on deck kind of company.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Casual Dress, Fun, multiple neat advertisers, innovative

    Cons

    Lack of consistency, being for sale, frequent employee changes, unclear long term strategy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for trying to bring us to great places in 2014 and beyond. Really enjoying the opportunity for career growth and visibility to our short term future. I really enjoy the framework of the company updates and think it's a great practice to continue in 2014. A few less company changes would be desired in 2014; more specifically around process, people, & culture. Keep up the great work.
