    Pros

    Elite SEM will forever change the way you think of work. Coming from another agency, I started to believe a "corporate job" wasn't for me. However, I decided to give Elite a try and now I wake up a much happier person. The company has a start-up vibe, even though it is well established. Employees are allowed the freedom to make their own choices which enables them to take pride in their work. Coworkers are some of the brightest, friendliest people you will meet. Managers are responsive to feedback and aren't opposed to change. On my first day I had people asking me for ideas because they truly value each persons opinion. Benefits are top notch: unlimited PTO/sick time, insurance, work from home whenever you want, maternity leave benefits, snacks, free lunch, education stipend, company outings, summer Fridays, the list goes on.....

    Cons

    Everyone is focused on being the best they can be, sometimes I feel like I should be working harder. Otherwise, none!

    Elite SEM is an amazing company! You truly feel valued as an employee and have the autonomy to make an impact. Everyone here is passionate about what they do and it's a wonderful feeling to be surrounded by such an intelligent and motivated team. Elite SEM truly offers great lives for great people. Everyone here is awesome and everyday I'm learning, growing and excited to make a difference!

    Cons

    Pros

    Amazing culture with a great group of people. The perks are fantastic, but there's so much more beyond that. Management cares so much about each and every employee. Everyone pushes each other to become better people, not just with work related things, but outside of work as well. So much emphasis is put on the core values. Attitude for gratitude, Strike for Greatness, Circle of Education and Love What You Do. I could go on and on about the pros. Truly couldn't imagine working anywhere else.

    Cons

    There isn't a single con I could think of. Anytime there is any place to improve, a plan is implemented immediately to keep Elite SEM at the top of their game. Everyone is very proactive and it is very evident.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You've already put yourselves above and beyond. You are leading the way to continue striving at an accelerated rate.

    Pros

    This company is a role model for how other companies should treat their employees. Some of the perks Elite SEM offers include: -Fantastic learning environment -friendly and likable coworkers -free lunch everyday -free snacks/drinks -weekly group lunches -unlimited sick/vacation days -work from home anytime -relaxed managerial approach -employees come before clients

    Cons

    These are more of cons for this particular industry rather than Elite SEM. The internet never sleeps. Some clients require attention on weekends or on holidays, but that is just part of this industry. Also this industry is always changing and so you need to keep up with all the updates and trends that occur.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. As the company continues to grow continue to stick to its core values. You are doing an excellent job.

    Pros

    Before I accepted Elite's generous offer to become a part of the team, I was somewhat skeptical about the benefits I was told they offered. What company gives their employees unlimited vacation time and free lunch everyday? I figured I would take my chances since I was tired of working for agencies who overwork and underpay their employees and offer little benefits. I'm so glad I took my chances because the benefits are REAL at Elite and management actually encourages us all to take advantage of all of them. They remind us frequency that it's important to take time off. Having an awesome executive/management team is definitely one of the many great benefits of working at Elite SEM! The executive/management team is great, and always open to ideas on how to further improve the company and keep everyone happy. They treat everyone like family, not like slaves.

    Cons

    If I was reviewing any other agency I've worked for, the con list would be huge. But with Elite, I really can't say anything negative. I do know that if I ever have an issue with something I can approach the management team with ease and know that they will do their best to resolve it.

    Advice to Management

    As the company continues to grow, don't lose sight of the Elite SEM core values.

    I have been working at Elite SEM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A real focus on you as a person. Your personal life and happiness are a HUGE priority to management. This is the first company I've ever worked for that PROACTIVELY sought to make sure my focus was on my family when it needed to be. There are frequent reminders that the unlimited vacation policy is in place for a reason.

    Cons

    I would really have to think and I might find something nitpicky. I think asking for change in an environment this positive and productive would be like punching the universe in the face.

    Advice to Management

    More active recruitment to spread the Elite SEM culture to new cities.
