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

    Pros

    Management does a great job recognizing their people. They are always planning fun activities and events at the office and letting you know how much they appreciate you. Great place to learn and grow. No shortage of opportunities to stand out and be recognized. All ideas and thoughts are shared and valued when in comes to client initiatives. Your input is always appreciated there.

    Cons

    Lack of organizational structure and no emphasis on operational planning. The company is ran by female salespeople and managers with no regard for process and operations. You have to be like them and in their clique to advance there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement organizational charts, define and train on responsibilities, hold people accountable for their performance. Get rid of the dead weight.

    I have been working at FKQ full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Been apart of the FKQ team for couple of years now and absolutely love it here. The company culture is high energy with a work hard, play hard attitude. Plenty of opportunities for personal and career growth. The staff is so friendly and enjoyable to work with. The diverse client roster keeps it interesting and stimulating.

    Cons

    Gotta have strong work ethic, it's fast-paced. So if you're a turtle, may not be best fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Exec team is wonderful, super approachable and have genuine interest in their employees. Love the new renovations! Thank you.

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

    Pros

    They have a very casual dress code. The people that work there are mostly friendly, normal people. The work is very easy. Management has strong family values.

    Cons

    The management is extremely unprofessional. Company is a family-run operation, as it has always been. The office is not maintained well and is outdated. The practices are very old-fashioned. Poor benefits. Awkward and distasteful events and decorations, year-round. Industry standard software and resources not available due to monetary constraints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your people and resources.

    Pros

    Happy Hours/Dinners/strong agency feel/fun creative pit

    Cons

    poor management/leadership, lack of strong resources in digital media/marketing, poor working conditions, poor employee benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more innovative and don't just share what other companies are seeing in digital media/marketing...give a POV or have your own stance on the market. Invest more resources/people and have clearer defined level (s) of management.

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

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, middle management does listen but does not act (they're over-worked as well)

    Cons

    Negative feedback given constantly, ideas ignored, confidence will be reduced until you think like rest of team, work day does not end (seriously)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company would thrive (and employees would happily work these long hours) if ideas from whole team acknowledged

    Pros

    Open communication.
    Tremendous opportunities for advancement.
    Continuous recognition of achievements.
    Creative atmosphere.
    Talented staff.
    Flexible to personal needs.
    Passionate people everywhere.
    Financially responsible.

    Cons

    A few bad eggs. Non-performers spoil things for others by not carrying the weight. Same small group also puts out negative energy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job recognizing the performers. Need to address non-performers and give less second (and third) chances. Everyone is empowered to do their job and for those that don’t take the empowerment seriously, time to cut bait.
