Current Employee - Artist in Helena, AL

I have been working at Mspark

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    There is a complete mismatch of talent and skill in client services. Sales staff is stressed out trying to meet unrealistic goals. Double marketing...outsource client services.
