I worked at Zimmerman Advertising full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great place to meet people. The 20 and 30 somethings make the transition into the workforce and enjoyable thing. I learned a lot from this experience (good and bad) that i could have only received through being thrown into the fire without training.

Cons

This company is definitely geared towards entry level positions. However, they paid such little salaries and expected so many hours that they were investigated by the department of labor while I was there and were forced to cut checks of different amounts to the majority of the workers. All in all, the empty promises of raises while at the same time increasing work load wasn't worth staying. I received 3 title promotions while i was there with only 1 pay increase. The rest of the time they were on a "salary freeze", when the upper management was still getting raises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just treat your employees a little better and your turnover will improve.

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Everyone is very friendly and easy to get along with. Zimmerman Advertising also offers great benefits as well. They also teach you a great deal about the advertising world if you don't know much about it already.

    Cons

    Like all advertising agencies, the hours per week will (mostly) exceed over 40. Luckily they pay overtime to compensate your hard work. I also have noticed that management tends place a lot of "last-minute" work on employee's which can overwhelm them at times.
