R2integrated is a great place to work ... if you've been there for more than 5 years. If not, don't bother.

Pros

- Fun activities (slowly being taken away, though)
- Free health insurance for individual
- Subsidized parking expense
- Talented employees
- Great office space

Cons

- Management frequently over-promises to Clients
- Favoritism to long-term employees
- No PTO accruement
- Inner-office cliques
- Lots of gossip
- Low morale

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Please stop over promising to Clients. The Account Management team is overworked, overwhelmed and under-paid. Also, the resources dislike you for doing this repeatedly.
- R2i didn't meet any of its goals in 2013, which didn't seem to phase upper management. Probably shouldn't have such a lacsidaisical attitude about this.
- Please stop comparing us to the other 'big-name' companies who we are up against at new biz pitches. R2i prides itself on being leaders, and right now, you're trying to follow.
- Not sure you all realize just how much great talent you have - try nurturing your current employees.
- R2i closing during Christmas/New Year's was a pleasant surprise! Please don't penalize employees by guilting them into staying late twice per week during the month of December to make up the time.

    Pros

    Lots of happy hours and random free outings, free food in the office, and sales people are good at their jobs so their is always cool work coming in the door.

    Cons

    General agency knowledge is irrationally low, no one has the faintest clue how to do digital marketing efficiently, people are very rude and territorial, and employees are paid horribly with no recognition of overtime or client wins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach your employees some kindness, get rid of the red tape and politics, and don't screw hard working employees on raises and well deserved bonuses because you "need money in the bank", or "just can't justify giving raises to anyone right now." Either treat your team with respect and proper compensation, or stop boasting about your 8 million per year in revenue. Which is it?

    We appreciate constructive criticism and candid feedback at r2i—and we welcome it—but disrespecting the organization, stating incorrect facts and making assumptions publicly is simply unprofessional ... More

    Pros

    Lots of exciting projects and you are surrounded by team members whom really want to do great things. r2i has some high profile clients and gives me the flexibility to try things and then try again if needed. Its always busy and lots of things to learn, which I really like. They offer great benefits and try to keep things fun and exciting when they can.

    Cons

    It's fast paced, which is great for me but not for everyone. You have to know how to juggle and manage your time well, but that seems to be part of agency life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep going, get more exciting projects and allow your teams to step up to the plate.
