Jettisoned or lost talent, not forward-looking

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Javelin Marketing Group

Pros- Laid back work environment.
- Get paid reliably regardless of effort put forth.
- Get a few easy title-bumps for your next job transition.

Cons- Laid off employees repeatedly. Cycles of hiring in between. General churn as well.
- Suggestions for process improvement went largely ignored if coming from below. Quality training was difficult to obtain, often mismatched or mundane and dispensed for the sake of filling quotas.
- Management or team leads were hired from outside, instead of promoting strong leaders within existing groups. Leads to a lot of resentment when talented people get overlooked.
- Bad leadership from top down. Ridiculous self-serving branding gymnastics, turning one company into three brands depending on who is asking, essentially.

Advice to Senior ManagementNope.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
