    I have learned so much from working with ECP.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsECP is a small office; therefore, there is a great opportunity to learn from or pitch ideas to various levels of management. The pace is very quick, and work is always changing. My coworkers were all very competent and helpful, and they were fun to work with, too - a lot of creative minds.

    ConsTempers run high, but mostly this aggressive attitude is to make sure everything is done in the most efficient way.

    A well organized company with a supportive and devoted team.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe smaller size of ECommerce Partners allows for plenty of exposure to all sides of the business. Fellow employees are friendly and willing to help, and a good effort is made to bring members together often. Communication is highly valued.

    ConsIf you prove that you're capable, you will be given the commensurate level of work - which is satisfying but at times the ways to approach certain tasks might be better explained.

    Great environment, great people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI came into this position not knowing much about ecommerce, but the open environment and knowledgeable team made it easy to quickly learn and get up to speed with the industry. Upper management is always available to help when there is a question. The general atmosphere is casual and employees are given the space to work independently.

    ConsCan get pretty fast-paced at times, which can be overwhelming when you and everyone around you is on overload. Never a dull moment though! Also, the office is open, so can get a little noisy when everyone is on a call. Headphones are a necessity!

    You'll learn more here than most other agencies, in this results-driven, yet down to earth environment.

    Marketing (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsYou'll get direct experience from A to Z in all aspects of ecommerce business. They hold weekly team meetings where you can get a transparent look at where things stand with all sorts of projects - design/development, marketing, and strategy. If you are highly ambitious and results-oriented, and can handle working with deadlines, then you will do well in this fast-paced environment. You'll meet clients in all industries, too. Food, fashion, B2B, etc. and have access to a wealth of knowledge and direct contact with experts in their fields.

    ConsYou have to be ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work, meet deadlines and get results for your clients. If you're looking for an easy corporate gig where you get to play with your friends on Facebook all day, gain lots of karma commenting on Reddit, or spend your day running your stock ticker while watching the latest episode of the Daily Show on Youtube, then this isn't the place for you. It's an open space environment - no cubicles so everyone pretty much knows what you're up to. It can get a little noisy at times because of this but you get used to it.

    Diligent, creative employees but a personal disconnect

    Marketing Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsA small group in an agency setting, very hands-on work, and clear results from your actions.

    ConsEmployees seem disconnected- very little discussion in the office and not much interaction outside of your small sphere. Management is right near you, however not much personal interaction in the office takes place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany outings! Employee events! It's such a small group but it feels like no one knows each other.

    Fear causes knee-jerk reactions to grind progress to a halt.

    Director of R&D (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsIt's pretty easy to get hired. Within the first six months of your employment, everything will be pretty rosy. Things will be exciting and you will be filled with hope. The leadership is great at seeing a great way to do business, and is open to change. Generally speaking you will feel warm camaraderie with your peers. The work is definitely cutting-edge and progressive. Work attire is extremely casual, in fact the whole environment is very casual. The management tries very hard to make it fun to work there, including company lunches and breakfasts, when appropriate, and really goes out of their way to tell you how happy they want you to be.

    ConsUnfortunately, the company is so open to change that it's constantly reinventing itself before the company has a chance to try the last idea. This leaves the company in constant (and unprofitable, flux). The management's solution is to hire fresh talent, which is immediately perceived as being the cure-all for whatever is wrong with the company, and whoever was previously doing the job is perceived as clearly an idiot who was bringing the company down - this despite the fact that the same euphoria and savior-dom was felt when the last guy was hired in.

    The two owners are extremely passionate, but do not work well together, and as such are constantly pulling the company in competing directions. The company is not doing well financially, is extraordinarily in debt, yet the owners continually talk in optimistic terms. The workers who are actually the only source of innovation and are punished for imagined offences, are constantly on the defensive against unpredictable attacks, and on average enjoy a tenure of 7 months before they are either fired or have their salary reduced to untenable levels so they "quit"

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire Someone else to run the company, and don't check in on them more than once every three months. You're good guys, but despite what you think, you're not good at business. You need to let someone else handle it, and remove yourself enough that your paranoia and fear of failure won't get in the way.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
