Pros

Good People offset the poor work ethic and poor management

Cons

Are not market competitive in salaries - limited growth
Too top heavy and too many layers
Seems many people have no clue what they are doing
Most seem to be afraid of their own shadow and will not take chances or think outside the box
Creatively FRUSTRATING
HR and Management Lie

Advice to Management

Pay your people what they are worth
Get rid of the dead weight - limited leadership and people who want to take charge
Delete the multiple layers and cut to the chase
Get rid of Bagel day and 4:10 Fridays - too fattening and a waste of money
Pay bonuses - not bagels and beer - based on work performance
Hire people who actually have a background in the area they will be working -
quit trying to fit a square peg into a round hole...

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about being cutthroat. If you're in the inner circle you'll get a company car and a home in KOP.

    Cons

    New leadership at TrueAction is horrible, inappropriate, and unliked. Sacred cows. Their ego is the funniest part. Nobody is prominent, but they sure think people know their names in this industry. They've really lost all of marketing's respect.

    People are leaving in droves but president says we're retaining our talent. We make more work for ourselves and rarely stop and be creative. Instead, you wind up crunching numbers and creating way too many reports all day. This is a just an ROI house, not marketing. People openly talk about quitting. Some VPs are largely untrusted. Rule by fear. 55 hour weeks. Has a horrible reputation in the recruiting circle.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about things and start doing, but then again, when you have new leadership every year, I guess it makes sense why nothing gets done.
