    Advice to Management

    Your key to a successful IPO is to show growth through innovation. You're currently focused entirely on cost-cutting and innovation is stagnating. As a result, awesome employees are jumping ship. They see no future with you guys. The only future you share is a bleak one where we're spending millions of dollars to realign our systems while at the same time canceling or outsourcing innovative projects. Personally, in the last five months, my top priority has shifted three times, with no project getting completed.

    If you want to have employees who are passionate about your business, give them some equity. There's a lot of animosity towards you guys right now since you're laser focused on getting to that IPO, yet you are the only ones who will benefit from it. The rest of us will likely suffer as shareholders will only demand further cost-cutting if we do go public.


  2. Great culture, successful company, effective products.

    In-house creative will never be as creative as agency-side creative.
