Culture of Fear

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsHacker Group has some talented individuals and a can-do attitude. They have established relationships with some key clients that keep revenue at a high-level

ConsSenior management pushes a "culture of fear." Individuals who challenge the status quo are rewarded with reprimands and dismissals. There are a number of incompetent individuals who have been rewarded with promotion for their inept behavior. The CFO seems more interested in his retirement than actually contributing to the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementHacker Group is in the midst of a significant brain drain and is considered a follower in the advertising agency world. There needs to be significant changes in order to move the company forward. The prevalent attitude is "it's always been good enough this way so let's not change anything." Time to move into the 21st century and act like a big agency.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
