Absurd office

Disapproves of CEO

Pros

People are really nice Great hours (come in at 9:30, leave by 6:30 daily) Passionate employees dogs fun office activities and relaxed environment

Cons

I find it hilarious that the same week they laid off a host of employees, their approval rating shot through the roof. Fishy reviews. The senior management is overpaid, underqualified and elitist. They don't respect their employees that do the work. I can not overemphasize the lack of respect. There is some level of loyalty to those who are in "the club", and unless you are in, you aren't valued. If you are in the club, its a golden ticket and great ride. Overall, a highly frustrating place of employment with little to no room for personal or career growth. The clients are always on the verge of leaving, so job security is always questionable. They don't charge enough for the work they do, so if one client leaves, the whole place could crumble.

Advice to Management

Respect your employees that do the work, remove the arrogance and lead by example. Your employees don't trust you, rightfully so.

"overpaid, underqualified and elitist". "Elitist"?!? Now that's beyond the pale my dear sir. "Mr. Carson, kindly arrange for a duel with this gentlemen". Skip Reed ... More

    Advice to Management

    Overall management does a good job. I would recommend investing more in the technology department in order to produce higher quality work.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    relaxed environment, decent hours, nice people, dogs

    Cons

    low value of employees outside account team poor process and support no performance reviews or warnings lackluster ideas not a well respected agency as far as career move upper management is completely out of touch with their company and employees constant threat of job loss without warning, no security lack of upper management protecting their team

    Advice to Management

    push the envelope more and hire people who are thriving to do so. get back in touch with the daily work lives of your employees. Reward those who are working hard and fighting for your company, rather than rewarding those who are just putting in the face time with you.
