    The intern program is one-of-a-kind and teaches you boundless knowledge about the current pharma landscape.

    Great people, long hours.

    Project (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsOver all it is a great company. Because it is small you have access to everyone in the company. It truly is a team atmosphere where people are helping out to make other people's days smoother.

    ConsAdvertising is a crazy life style. The hours and flow of work can often get out of control. Working late in the industry is standard.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the culture. Try to get better control of client requests.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    super frustrated by miscommunication and uncompetence

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsThe job I have is near my house and pays more than my last job and the job is also less stressful than my last job.

    ConsI have been very frustrated trying to get benefits. I asked to speak with the person who is the supervisor of the person who is supposed to be coordinating my benefits and was not given access to this person. Another time I called and was told they were not there, and then heard them in the background. The reason I was trying to contact the supervisor is multiple emails to this person and through the website went unanswered. If you look at their website it does not give any information on contact people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecommend your employees use manners when communicating with others such as "please" and "thank you." Recommend them be more professional and competent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Concentric is an agency that thrives on the idea. If you got what it takes—you'll grow here fast

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsOpen door access to partners
    High level of responsibility and accountability.
    Relaxed and creative environment
    A culture of respect for others and the work

    ConsLike most agency's, we tend to focus on the client. Internal communication could be improved so everyone understands how to be successful

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue agency update meetings, bagel Monday's, brand reviews and team-building functions. Take some time to continue reinforcing the values that have built a nice place to work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It is what it is.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsBeing a smaller agency, you are able to be more involved throughout the life of a project. There is opportunity to get that nice title you've always wanted.

    ConsProcess here is very much "shoot from the hip" and management is usually "not on the same page", which leads to confusion and frustration for team members. This is a reflection of shortcomings of upper management. There is a lack of creative solutions here. Solutions are very "cookie cutter" and rote.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to communicate more with each other and understand where key decison makers are on projects to avoid the scenario of the day-to-day team members get mixed messages and become frustrated, confused and disgruntled.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    To work at Concentric, you need to be self-suffcient and able to excel without much guideance.

    Copywriter (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe partners are some of the smartest people I have ever met. They try to push you forward and help you grow. Also, the employees in general, are all friendly and welcoming, not to mention that company morale is generally high.

    ConsSome of the middle management are not very good at managing. They are competent and do their jobs well, but are not able to push/help you to your next level. It's very much a matter of trial by fire/sink or swim.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe partners: brush up on communication with the entire company. There are times when no one know what's going on.
    Middle management: learn how to manage the people under you competently.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Cons-Not always things to do, lack of depth in analytics training
