Fast paced, good benefits, great leaders!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Pros- Surrounded by talented and savvy people
- Great benefits
- Strong leadership
- Fun perks

An incredibly fast paced environment that allows you to be creative, no matter what department you work in. We have a strong Executive Team who are generous with sharing their knowledge and value open transparent communication. They encourage “empowerment” , but it’s still up to the individual to take it and run with it. Those that don’t, complain they aren’t empowered. Those that do, make things happen and are successful here.

When you join Hacker Group you are made aware that you are paid a base salary and then receive quarterly bonuses which are based on profit. We have had some quarters where the bonus was low and that can affect company morale. But we have historically had strong quarters where the bonuses are very good, and even some that rock!!

Bottom-line this is a great environment to work in, to learn, to master skills, grow professionally, and even have fun while doing it.

ConsCons: Sometimes long hours, and quick turn-around times. Everyone works hard here, and if you also work smart, you can have a decent work-life balance, but as in all things you need to put some effort into it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Blame and Escalation

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    I worked at HackerAgency full-time for less than a year


    Pros: The people on the front line are great. The PM's, developers, creatives etc. are good, talented people who are great to work with in… Cons: After reading the previous reviews, I could almost just copy and paste the comments about the culture of fear, finger pointing and over reaction to… Advice to Senior Management: Again, mirroring the other reviews, it's very simple; be civil, decent and kind.
