    I worked at Digital Pulp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friday family-style lunch, free Beer Thursdays, laid back environ, very knowledgeable & skilled coworkers, constant change of clients means large variety of skills acquired & used, flat management hierarchy, formerly friendly culture, culture of kindness

    Cons

    Increasingly poor communications due to deceivingly laid back nature, behind-the-scenes politics prefers certain employees especially partners & pals, workloads uneven per client's wishes, new management promotes info stovepiping, degrading in-person communications from changing management, art/design emphasis over technology/timeframes, design-centric culture, corporate overhead quickly growing, nowhere to rise to, longtimers have disproportionate sway, emphasis on free & fast over best practice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let corporate process degrade friendliness

    I worked at Digital Pulp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The partner/creative director and founder/president are great guys and top-notch professionals in their respective fields. Nice employee lunches at a big, long table. Competitive compensation.

    Cons

    Favoritism shown to a few visual designers and producers. Developers, UX designers, and most visual designers are treated like expendable nobodys. Technology- and schedule-related realities are not taken into account early enough in a project. No/few opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve tech and UX earlier in the creative process, and try implementing collaborative work breakdown and schedule estimation sessions before and throughout projects.

    I have been working at Digital Pulp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free Friday lunch, lots & lots of down time

    Cons

    No raise unless you ask for one, senior management gives crappy holiday bonuses, health benefits are expensive, employees always come in late, white male ran company (don't expect any bonuses, or raises,) often asked to perform duties which you are not getting paid for so company can save a buck, HORRIBLE 'Open Space" work environment- meaning no personal space at all and can overhear all conversations, partners show favoritism to designers and a few producers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better structure and enforcement of rules and regulations, sit in the back for a few days and see how much you love your open space environment, give better raises, fire Tara already lol

    I have been working at Digital Pulp

    Pros

    Great employees
    Relaxed atmosphere
    Broad range of clients

    Cons

    Lower end of pay scale
    Small agency, people are expected to perform the duties of multiple jobs-when really the company should hire specialists for those areas
    Bad medical benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more autonomy to employees
    As the company grows more structured management is needed.

    I worked at Digital Pulp

    Pros

    There was a very good team atmosphere when I was there. Excellent staff and management were not too bad to deal with in general. Weekly family style lunch was always fun. small company feeling

    Cons

    Lower end of the pay scale. benefits were pricey. office is in a bit of a dead location. small company feeling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing a pretty good job over all. the shop needed some clear leadership in the creative department as things were getting a bit out of hand
