Pros

Hours are awesome - people leave by 5:30 or 6. They're cool if you need to work from home or do some flex-time arrangement, as long as you bill your assigned hours. The clients and projects we get are solid and keep getting better.

Cons

The pay is poor. High-level execs have told me bluntly that the best way to improve your pay is to quit, work somewhere else for a few months, then come back. Company is totally driven by the sales department, so it's tough to advance outside of it. The Li-Ning venture isn't a fit for us at all and is a total mess.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We keep hearing that our company is doing great - so let's share the wealth for once.

    Pros

    Everyone I've met at Acquity has been approachable, talented, and easy to work with. Acquity's clients are almost all larger companies with significant web content or eCommerce challenges so the work is very exciting. As evidenced by the three-day new hire training and the company's use of internal metrics, Acquity is very organized.

    Cons

    The company culture is quite people-oriented but the amount of available metrics means that you do need to watch your personal numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They've all been great.
