Churn & burn

Former Employee - Creative in New York, NY
Former Employee - Creative in New York, NY

I worked at Code and Theory full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Lots of talented and easy-to-get-along-with employees below the management level across all departments. - Salary was competitive, given you have the right prior experience - Decent office in a decent location - Projects skewed more towards interesting/innovative rather than corporate/unambitious

Cons

- Agree with several of the other reviews here: total bro club in upper management - Zero empathy from the partners leads to obnoxious expectations - Near-impossible timelines matched with a lack of support leads to extremely long hours - Company culture is almost non-existent

Advice to Management

Throwing tantrums is not the way to keep employees motivated. The insane levels of expectation tend to burn people out, and thus it's rare to find anybody lasting beyond a year here.

    Pros

    You'll work with talented people who want to push the work forward in a fast-paced environment. You'll forge bonds with team members through project work, and the project themselves are more compelling than you'd find at another agency.

    Cons

    Don't expect close mentorship or career development, or to work in an environment that justifies the amount of hours you spend there. The management culture, which dominates that of the whole office, is markedly male, and time and again it appears the way to justify an idea is to yell it or argue like a child about it. This definitely limits opportunities for those unwilling or unable to act like this.

    Advice to Management

    Open up paths for mobility beyond the bro club/ culture of arrogance. Do some searching as to the subtleties in your everyday behavior that cause this to be the overriding company culture. Make actual investments in employees and in advancing the company's level of community.
