I have been working at Fishbowl Marketing full-time for less than a year

Pros

great culture, management cares about the employees, CEO Scott Shaw is very approachable and down to earth, team happy hours, flip-flop dress code, great views from the huge balcony of DC & National harbor, multiple options for public transportation

Cons

can't really think of any. I've worked for a number of other companies that have been OK to work for, but Fishbowl is head and shoulders above them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

e-mail platform needs to be updated...very antiquated when compared to competitors

    Pros

    This place is a rare gem. It's hard to believe, that in the DC area, you can work somewhere that's so cool. The office is incredible with balconies all over the place with views of DC and this crazy comfortable balcony furniture but its super casual too. I don't think I have ever seen anyone wear a suit and I love wearing my jeans and flip flops everyday. This stuff is cool but what's better is the people, the amount of promotions that happen all the time and that my manager really works with me to grow my career.

    Not to mention parties, happy hours, ice cream socials and just fun stuff happening all the time!

    It's been almost a year now and I love it.

    Cons

    I don't drive and the metro stop is about a mile away. There's a free shuttle but I wish I could walk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you. Scott- I love that you still conduct orientation and talk to everyone.

    I worked at Fishbowl Marketing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The atmosphere is relaxed; CEO is incredibly nice and promotes a friendly environment

    Cons

    You may end up being over-burdened by your workload depending upon your department; it seems there is little thought in advancing most employees, more like moving them around and calling it a promotion; other department heads do not follow the CEO's lead in promoting a friendly environment; seems likely the company will be acquired by a larger competitor in the near future

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on providing clear career paths and promoting from within to take full advantage of your dedicated workforce
