    Pros

    I have made great connections throughout the industry through my employment with this company. I see a potential for great career growth. I have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects.

    Cons

    Employees are placed or kept in positions that do not necessarily fit their skill set.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where services are shared by the company, management from the different divisions should also have input on hiring and promotions.

    Pros

    Free coke in the office

    Cons

    Brand leaders who are out of touch with Staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Russ started his time at Focus offering leadership training to the staff as well as leaders. His leadership encouraged the staff, but the leaders seem to not get it and did the complete opposite of what Russ "said." Leadership means your actions and the actions of your leadership team matches your rhetoric.
