    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    All coworkers are extremely friendly and supportive. For individuals who are new to search engine marketing, Elite SEM does a fantastic job of providing the proper training so that you can succeed. In addition to the great pay and flexibility in work hours, Elite SEM tries its best to keep its employees happy by allowing unlimited vacation days.

    Cons

    It is a highly evolving field and so it may be difficult to be on top of all the new updates and rapid changes. However, if you love digital marketing, it just means that you'll be learning something new everyday!

    I have been working at Elite SEM

    Pros

    Elite SEM constantly challenges/provides its employees to grow and move forward in the industry, all while contributing to the growth of Elite. Elite SEM has figured out the secret to motivate its employees through free lunch, unlimited vacation and above industry standard compensation. The harder Elite employees work, the greater the reward. Elite is very focused on keeping a company culture and that has held true since day 1 of my employment. It is truly a privilege to work here and be apart of the Elite family.

    Cons

    Not a con, but Elite prides itself on employing the best, so it can be overwhelming at times to keep up within the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    Elite SEM is a great place to work and has an amazing culture. If you're a hard-working, A-player, the sky's the limit here. Elite SEM truly cares about its employees and works hard every day to maintain such a fantastic vibe. The work environment is very entrepreneurial and you will need to take the bull by its horns, which I prefer. All-in-all, the best agency I have worked for....and that's no bull.

    Cons

    No cons here, but the harder you work the luckier you get!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is growing fast and leadership is doing a great job keeping the company culture.

    Pros

    Company values and office culture are something that would be hard to copy, even in a movie. Management and CEO care about our personal lives more than you can imagine. They want their employees to have great lives. Unlimited vacation/sick days, free lunch, summer Friday's, and ability to work in other offices for any amount of time are small examples of how they want us to have a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    I've been working at Elite SEM for almost a year and I still have not found one con.
