Pros

There is a great corporate atmosphere. The training is very thorough

Cons

selling print mail is EXTREMELY difficult in the digital age. The new hire compensation system is bad for sales. And the account services and graphics team are grossly underpaid.

Advice to Management

Rethink the sales process for Inside Sales. It doesn't work the same as outside sales. The new hire compensation system is bad for sales. And the account services and graphics team are grossly underpaid.

    Pros

    Benefits aren't bad, office is generally clean, jeans & t-shirt environment, there is a gym & plenty of vending machines, there is an activity committee that tries to give a "family" feel to the place.

    Cons

    Micromanaging everything
    Promotions = working there for 3 months and braiding your boss's hair
    Unfair workload
    Management is gossipy, childish and values likeability over capability.
    notes must be taken at meetings, classes must be attended, forms must be filled out and time must be wasted in order to provide data for measurable standards that in no way benefit an employee, with the obvious exception of not allowing them the needed time to do their jobs.
    Sales has all the power
    Deadline driven environment with ZERO downtime
    No breathing room

    Advice to Management

    Calm down, back off and let everyone do the jobs you hired us to do. No one enjoys wasting time and our futures here are uncertain enough.

    Pros

    Pay is fair. Casual dress and atmosphere. Office is nice. Software is up to date and computers are very good.

    Cons

    Middle management micromanages every part of the art department. There isn't room for career advancement. Information is horded by managers. "Busy work". Pay raises are low. Good work is not rewarded. There is low worker morale.

    Advice to Management

    Do not treat your workers like children. Set out a career path where your artists can get more responsibility and more skills and advance in their careers.
