I worked at ES3 full-time

Pros

Opportunities to work on some very cool projects; some very talented and creative co-workers; at times the owner is very generous, especially at Christmas

Cons

Leadership and culture are entirely male-dominated; they have a few women directors and such but their level of influence isn't strong; senior partners are not open to new ideas or critical feedback; quite a bit of subverted resentment/fear among the staff including the partners

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice won't be helpful; the owner likes to keep everyone including his partners uncomfortable, nervous, striving to please. The rest of the org culture follows from that.

    All depends on if you're being hired for a creative or account position....either way prepare yourself for a LONG day!!

    Pros

    Lots of fun, unique energy throughout the office.
    Weekly "Fruity Tuesday" meets that treated you to some sort of food goodies
    Monthly company location event, sometimes onsite depending on workload at the time it could be a pizza party in the back warehouse or Angels Game.
    If you work on the creative side be prepared to have limited rules apply to you that the accounts side has to abide by....dress code, hours of operation, overall being allowed to have a happy outgoing environment.
    Alcohol is commonly drank in the late afternoon/evenings
    Very tech savvy company
    Owner is very generous at times in the form of perks or bonuses

    Cons

    Where to start??? If you aren't one of the lucky "star bellied sneetches" or otherwise known as "one of the creative" and work on the accounts side don't expect rules to be implemented the same. You are a salaried employee so that means that if you aren't prepared to work from 8AM to at least 6:30PM then expect dirty looks and your eventual dismissal from the company. You won't be fired but your position will all of the sudden no longer be needed even though the work load is INSANE because they refuse to hire more staff. You work for an entry level salary but have an Executive's hours regardless of your actual work experience.....everyone is entry level. When you aren't at work you're still working if you work on the Accounts side....expect to have consultants/auditors calling you 7 days a week and at all hours of the day. Your hours are based on the fact that they work during the weekend too and unfortunately you support people that work in car dealerships all over the country. If you have kids or simply can't or won't work the crazy hours you are looked down upon. Staff has been known to relocate from other offices throughout the country only to quit because of unfair office politics and this is staff that wasn't entry level but rather the higher ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff in order to support the programs being launched so that way the current staff isn't working excessively long hours and resentment isn't being harbored amongst each other.
