    I had a great experience at Bing (Microsoft) with an extended contract through Filter.

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

    Pros

    They advocate for their employees and offer health and benefits, as well as consistent check-ins.

    Cons

    On the vendor side, I found another agency that offered better perks (401K, dental, full medical, vacation plans, etc.). But Filter was a close second.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only negative again was that I did find an agency that offered better perks (401K, dental, full medical, vacation plans, etc.). But Filter was a close second.

    I worked at Filter full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I used to have positive things to say but not anymore....

    Cons

    too many to list but main points would be that this company doesn't respect its past and does not understand where it is going. probably best to throw in the towel before it implodes. any time all of your good employees leave.... the writing is on the wall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop treating your people like furniture. you burn up loyalty like it has no value

    Pros

    Decent benefits, pay. And a beautiful downtown office you can help them pay for.

    Cons

    What do they do, again? I brought them the job, got myself hired, and took on loads of responsibility even as the client's project lead quit and was not replaced. The Filter client manager would show up at the project site with holiday treats and not even know who the manager of her several 'employees' was, much less what was going on with the project

    And at the end of the assignment, no one from the agency ever said 'thanks' or 'see ya' or 'can we help you find your next gig?'

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

    Pros

    This is a great place to come to work. Everyone works hard, and plays even harder. There is a real effort to create a work/life balance. Management is not stuffy. Open, collaborative, team environment.

    Cons

    With so many different, and vocal personalities, you sometimes have to scream to be heard. However, it's encouraged to speak up and make a voice for yourself.

    I have been working at Filter full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Company culture, tribal values, work/life balance, we work hard and play hard and have as much fun as possible. Transparency and access to everyone company wide. I genuinely like and enjoy the people I work with. It's such a nice change to look forward to coming to work each day.

    Cons

    Honestly, I am hard pressed to find anything I don't like about Filter. Of course, with any job there are downsides, but I can't think of a single thing that I "hate" or "dislike" about Filter. The only downside is that we've done such a good job of staying ahead of the curve, that we've created some fierce competitors...we really have to stay on our toes to keep the rest of the industry at bay. But I wouldn't have it any other way!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what we're doing. Keep our values at the heart of everything we do. Keep thinking fresh and innovative and new.

    Pros

    Great downtown location half a block from bus tunnel.

    Cons

    This company does not value the poeple. They will say that they do, and may give some outward impression that they do - but at the end of the day it's a dictatorship. So if you go in knowing that you're a cog, you'll be fine. There have been a lot of changes in the past few years that have effected client/customer service negatively.
