    I worked at Definition 6 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    When they pitch well, they bring in top tier client and opportunities. Client relationships revolve around omni-channel engagements that strive to drive brands towards meaningful engagement with prospects and consumers.
    – Beer, snacks, outings, bring your pets to work, all the usual benefits, etc.
    - Used to put out great work
    - Worked with a lot of talented people through the years

    Cons

    The top management of the company seems to be ego driven. This may have changed since I left, but your career growth is basically determined by whether or not you are part of the inner circle and can party with the big boys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actions speak louder than words and we all see your actions.

    I worked at Definition 6 full-time

    Pros

    The people who work at Definition 6 are good people. The work-life balance was pretty good.

    Cons

    The cost of doing business with D6 made it hard to afford a lot of resource hours on any given project. This led to a lot of projects with mediocre results. There never seemed to be enough money to push the envelope with respect to technology or creative. The creative also was pretty dated and trite and led to a lot of stuff that looked like it should have been made a few years prior. In this regard, more of the blame can be put on the time the budget afforded them to do a good job than the skill of those putting together the creative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to provide more value to your clients without charging any more money. It could be argued a client's money is worth more elsewhere because there are other agencies producing a better product with similar budgets.

    I worked at Definition 6

    Pros

    Dog friendly office and weekly happy hour. The company has a strong consulting/ strategy oriented culture which many ad agencies lack.

    Cons

    The place is a revolving door. Large part of the management team does not care about the well being of the employees. Everyone is treated as a disposable resource.

    I worked at Definition 6 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some co-workers are very bright.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover, disrespectful toward clients behind closed doors, lack of strategic direction, willing to sell services that the business cannot support (will just hire outside of the organization to win a deal), leadership treats women VERY disrespectfully

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Obtain a morality coach, learn that without great employees you have no sustainable brand value, learn how to treat women with dignity and respect.

    I worked at Definition 6 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a really fun company to work at, and it will give you a lot of client-facing exposure plus the opportunity to learn new technologies and processes. It has an excellent culture for younger professionals (20s to early 30's) to start or progress their careers.

    Cons

    It can be high stress and chaotic. There is often a lot of firefighting in response to poor planning or expectation management with clients. Career advancement is more a function of relationships than performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute a more formal HR structure with a formal review / raise process, 360 peer reviews, and annual goal settings.

    I have been working at Definition 6

    Pros

    Great clients and client relationships.
    Open, communicative management team looking for mutual success.
    Broad range of marketing, video, graphic and tech skills in the same building working together.
    Weekly all-hands communication sessions and happy hours.

    Cons

    Open-door dog policy leads to the inevitable.
    It is big enough that you can get stuck living under a rock if you don't reach out and get visible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep connecting us with great clients!
