    Pros

    Tons of smart people who are passionate about their work and clients. The vibe is good and very collaborative. The types of projects are really cool. Summer Fridays. Great food. Jam sessions on the loading dock. Stuff to do nearby with the new Westwood station.

    Cons

    Some positions require a lot of traveling (but at least they are to 5 star resorts and international cities.) Need to further develop consistent processes.

    Pros

    In general the environment around Cramer is great. Great people who are capable of great things! A good place to use as a stepping stone.

    Cons

    Grossly under-valued, especially with compensation. They want the most out of each employee but even if you're bending over backwards they will NOT give you an adequate income.

    Advice to Management

    If a freelance environment is what you want you will continue to lose solid employees

    Pros

    Very nice and supportive colleagues for the most part. The usual free food, video games etc.

    Cons

    Disorganized, unstructured, churn and burn philosophy towards "the doers". Upper management will continue to dump work on the severely under-resourced staff until they become miserable and leave. Attrition is extremely high, new employee retention is extremely low. With the exception of a handful of lifers and relatives (family-owned), the rest choose to leave this chaotic mess within the first year of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Give a damn about the employees. Get it done and run this company properly.

    Pros

    The people at Cramer are great to work with. There is a real team feeling throughout the company. The benefits are great as well.

    Cons

    Going through some growth challenges and the career paths are very limited. With the grow, the culture has suffered as well.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the people on the ground to get a sense of what is really happening within the company and set people up for success. Provide career paths to everyone, regardless of where they are in the company.

    Pros

    Great environment with smart and very friendly, welcoming people. Awesome lunch program. Fun social events. Exposure to great clients and they really allow you to express yourself creatively.

    Cons

    Family business. Pay is lower than industry standard. Every manager works differently which can certainly hinder each individual's experience.

    Pros

    Incredible work/life balance. Management style is typically very autonomous and you have the flexibility to do what you want if you're a self-starter and consistently keep your clients happy. The people are top notch as well.

    Cons

    Family run business with a super low ceiling. Pay is much less than what you can expect elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Turn over is so high. I typically saw the most talented people at the company leave, mostly because the compensation was nowhere near what they were able to earn elsewhere. If you want to retain great talent, a great work atmosphere alone will not ensure that.
