I worked at R2integrated as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Great coworkers who care about their work and strive to make great things. Many interesting clients and a wide variety of work being done. Excellent opportunities available to an intern if you step up to the plate. Plenty of social activities for employees and little perks around the office.

Cons

Sometimes communication within projects is an issue for an intern.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep interns in the loop on projects that they are part of, from the beginning. Cc'ed on emails, present for meetings & for critiques of their work. It is immensely helpful to know what is going on with a project, both to be a better contributor and to learn more about the process.

    I worked at R2integrated full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It felt like a family. Lots of bonding events. Spoiled by food, drinks, casual atmosphere, healthcare benefits.
    Lot of fun and challenging projects. Company tries to diversify client industry. Lot of talented and smart workers. HR handbook was created so things seemed more fair as they used it. Office politics didn't affect my work.

    Cons

    Company expands but seems to have little room career growth for most. Bonus was a rare thing for the years I worked there tho it might have changed. Heard of overtime pay but doesn't apply to everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Profit sharing is important. Reward the hard work before they leave. Hire the right people with more cautions. Consider career development path for those who grow in the company.

    I worked at R2integrated full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Mostly Excellent Middle Management
    - Team leads were very knowledgeable, always willing to help
    - Production managers were very flexible about adjusting schedules/priorities to meet deadlines

    Cool Office
    - The office in Canton was vibrant and I hear the new one in the Inner Harbor is slick as all get-out

    Great Coworkers
    - Coworkers were generally happy people, great to socialize with.

    High-Profile Work
    - Whether you were a designer or a developer you got to add some great sites to your portfolio.

    Cons

    Divided Loyalties
    - r2i is 2 separate companies trying to be one. The web design and development "agency" half of the business not always treated equally to the more esteemed "marketing" half of the business.

    Low Pay
    - Entry level position pay about market rate but the raises are a joke.

    Obvious Management Deceptions
    - Bi-annual parties and paid trips to the ice cream parlor meant to distract you from working conditions, pay and cutting back of bonuses despite CEO bragging about record profits.

    Pointless Company Meetings
    - Every couple of months the entire company gathers in a ball room so that executives can self-fellate their egos before a live audience. Meetings often had no point or meaning to peon-level employees (other than the following party).

    High Employee Turnover
    - Watch your coworkers come and go...

    Flat Company Structure
    - Little to no room for advancement.
    - More like a digital assembly line/factory job than a career.
    - Top-heavy management hires too many executive level positions; obviously hiring them for their connections than any of their actual skills or abilities.

    Summary:
    Ever wonder where the term "human resources" comes from? Places like this. You're not an employee, you're a commodity; capitalism at its finest. It's not hell by any stretch, but it's no place for any workers with ambition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. What you're doing is clearly making a lot of money for you and the company grows exponentially despite the high turn-over. If the finances are as stable as you claim they are, why would you change?
