I worked at Just Marketing

Pros

JMI paid good salary and benefits relative to the other jobs i have worked at and provided some opportunity to travel.

Cons

Unreasonable workload with no balance between work and family.
Sometimes harsh criticism
Lack of recognition for accomplishments and promotions were not given based on merit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

New leadership needed that understand the necessary balance between work and family and who have the ability to manage people with kindness and respect.

    Pros

    Overly inflated compensation and bonuses due to lack of industry information and benchmarking. So the pay was good. Exciting indusrty and opportunity to travel to cool places.

    Cons

    No support or communication from upper management. Very "siloed" organization and everyone is out for themselves. I you want a raise you need to be in the right department and have the gumption to ask every day for a long time. It will finally come but at a high price of doubled or tripled work load. Don't have a family life and work at this place. You are expected to eat, sleep, live, and breath this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get trained on how to treat people and each other. Work as a "team" and not just a bunch of individulas trying to get one over on the rest.

    I worked at Just Marketing full-time

    Pros

    They seem to acknowledge that there are numerous employees that are dissatisfied with the current state of the company. They recently were sold and bought by a new holding company so hopefully that will help alleviate some of the issues.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything about this company's structure goes completely against the nature of an innovative agency. Creativity is lacking and the company often suggests to clients ideas and strategies that have worked for them with other clients, with no semblance of originality.

    I also found the organization to be incredibly homogeneous with horrible xenophobic ideals. Once a Senior Director actually winced and said he'd rather eat glass than share a hotel room with a gay person. Not a progressive organization at all. I know Motorsports is a 'boys club' but that is no excuse for misogynistic company policies like having to take disability in order to have a child.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Short of relocating the headquarters to an area that extols actual creative people (i.e. getting out of Indiana,) hire a real Creative Director. Hold some of your longtime staff more accountable. Client retention is an issue and trust me it isn't because of new employees. Learn to be a more accepting environment and for the love of God, don't recycle old client work and give it to new clients, it's just lazy and unprofessional.
