    I have been working at EVB Inc. full-time

    Pros

    love the people - culture is great and the work is important to everyone. i've never been in such a collaborative environment before. everyone's opinions matters regardless of title.

    Cons

    - process needs to be better but so does everywhere.
    - work life balance for some is non-existent and a lot of it has to do with the first point
    - lack of initiatives in place to build/foster relationships with existing accounts
    - new business strategy is not shared with agency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    needs to be more transparent - be aware of the wonderful collaborative culture you have and embrace it. been noticing a shift toward the other end lately.

    I worked at EVB Inc.

    Pros

    Interesting client roster, high quality of creative output coming from this shop.

    Cons

    Don't intern here, you won't learn anything. They go out of their way to emphasize their 'Residency Program' and how they don't call their interns 'interns' because they view them as equals etc, etc. That's not the case at all, my mentor was completely non-existent. I could've not come to work for an entire week and they wouldn't have noticed, seriously. It's obvious some of the department heads and executives don't like each other, too. Passive aggressiveness runs rampant here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire department heads that are real leaders, can develop and foster talent, and are culturally curious. I saw some bright people quit because they could no longer deal with our department's director.

    Not the best place for someone who wants to learn

    I have been working at EVB Inc. as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people who will sometimes take the time to help out. If you're in the creative department this is an awesome place to be.

    Cons

    The process is completely messed up and no one really knows who's doing what. The Account side is pretty brutal, upper management has some big egos and you have to fight for every job you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a sense of consistency, keep the good people around.

    Relax the schedules. Hire up. Give bonuses. Turn the space into more of a studio than warehouse. More Bud Light.

    Pros

    Stimulating and creative environment, powered by wall-less and dog friendly environment.

    Cons

    Unless you're in the creative circle, you are under-appreciated and under valued. Senior management pays little attention to the needs of departments aside from the creatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your head out of your ass, please.

    I worked at EVB Inc.

    Pros

    A cubicle-less work environment that promotes creativity, and a remarkably dog friendly setting

    Cons

    Inappropriate management of personnel and abusive expectation of hours worked per week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more constructive work environment that respects the personal familial needs of their workers as much as management desires the worker remain fixed at the office.
