Pros

The executive management is extremely approachable and treats everyone with respect, and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Employees are not micro-managed. There is none of the office politics you typically find at larger firms. The company has a wide-range of clients, so the work stays fresh and interesting from year-to-year. Company benefits are superior to what you'd find at Enlighten's competitors and the pay is commensurate with your job responsibilities. The physical office is open and well designed and is situated next to a woods just a few minutes from downtown Ann Arbor.

Cons

Enlighten is not much for on-the-job training, so expect to hit the ground running. That said, everyone at the company is quick to offer help or advice when asked. Also, as a work-for-hire company, revenues can fluctuate, which has resulted in modest trims to the workforce every few years.

    Pros

    Absolutely wonderful work-life balance; amazing benefits and unreal amount of paid time off. The culture is very casual and self-initiative based. Lots of collaborative meetings and brainstorming sessions.

    Cons

    Very horizontal company which proves difficult when trying to navigate the tough marketing-win waters. Definite silos of decision makers and no transparency on company vision or outlook for future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more out there! Interact and share the day to day issues with your team members and prove as leaders to the employees - - they're only as good as they're led to be!

    Pros

    Interesting physical facility, which is the first thing that strikes you when visiting. Good co-workers, many pulled from the cream of local sources like UM and WCC. Generally non-toxic, which is all too rare. It's a smallish agency with a variety of good clients but no ecomm.

    Cons

    Not everyone's cup of tea because of size and methods. But if it fits you, it's great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should also be leaders, i.e. team builders, communicators, and visionaries. Some of you are, and if you're one of them, keep it up! If you aren't, it would be great for everybody if you would think about what that could mean for you.
