I worked at Situation Interactive

Pros

Cool office space with free snacks and coffee. Everyone is around the same age range so coworkers become friends fast.

Cons

It's a small agency with growing pains. When they lose a major account or business, people get laid off. They also tend to promote people too quickly with no former management/leadership experience and are in constant flux with "the process" so many people are set up to fail.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There should be training and education opportunities available for managers.

    I worked at Situation Interactive full-time

    Pros

    An agency full of talented and fun employees. Good benefits and free snacks for all - they do monthly agency wide happy hours and host events to bring employees together. Overall morale of the office is good and you meet friendly people.

    Cons

    Internal structure and processes of projects lacked and was frustrating. Certain departments seem to have more say in creativity and at times did not include the creative department. Projects came with low budgets and fast (sometimes extreme) deadlines. There was a lack of leadership from those who are above you and salary offered was fairly low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and clear about job roles and offer more learning opportunities. The learning curve was difficult and projects were pushed onto me with no other information.

    I worked at Situation Interactive full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Young creative team makes for fun working environment. HR does their best to keep a good culture, morale up and synergy going.

    Cons

    Creative team morale is to the floor, senior creatives have been let go by terrible CDs just to "clean up" after their own mistakes (overall shadiness from overrated CDs). Good talent leaves after they've been fed up by terrible upper management. Account Dept. seems to have more creative control than Creative Dept. President lacks real vision of what he wants. Sitch has made their name by catering to Broadway clients but Owner completely hates that industry yet cannot find a way to break away from it. They continue to thrive off acquiring cheap young talent. Don't let them low ball you if you truly believe you are worth more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent with everyone in general and compensate creatives what they deserve.
