    I have been working at Forthea full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been working at Forthea for just over a year now and I can honestly say it is the best company that I have ever worked for. The company has so much room for growth, the culture and team are great and it is overall just a fun, motivating place to work.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any cons, but if I had to say something it would be that the Nerf gun dart supply is getting low.

    Pros

    No weak links
    No backstabbing
    No blame
    Excellent systems
    Excellent communication
    Growing at a rate that the company can support without creating inefficiencies
    Good before big, but big isn't that far off

    Cons

    The printer runs out of ink too often and has trouble printing pdfs
    That is all, just the printer. It's not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great place to work
    Keep up the communication, accountability and shared vision.
    New printer. Seriously, it is really bad.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, pay and overall benefits. Management is constantly looking to improve - both for clients and employees.

    Cons

    Micromanagement from upper management. Lack of focus and too much control cause some projects to get lost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go a bit and trust in the team

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

    Pros

    Forthea is small, but it's full of smart, dedicated individuals with a vast array of talents. Everybody here is an A+ player and most have experience with some of the "bigger" agencies in town. Employees here are attracted to it because they can create real chance and be part of building something special. Company culture is professional yet laid back. A number of new clients have lead to some nice growth and the addition of new teammates.

    Cons

    They are sticklers for process, and some see that as a negative. I would argue that having a solid structure in place will support increased growth without going through the fire-drills other agencies go through when they see increased growth.

    Small Company Still Finding It's Identity

    I have been working at Forthea full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Snacks, pretty simple work, small group, friendly people, quiet office.

    Cons

    Very big brother environment. Required to enter time entries for all 8 hours of your day. This is viewed by management, where client work is then your weekly "utilization score". Very corporate for an agency. It's a very small group, so if your looking to gain a higher position probably not the company for you. It say's 30+ but it is about 15 including upper management. Pay is not as competitive, but again it is a small company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people more. Give actual raises and not just pats on the back.

    Pros

    Great clients and mix of laid back with professional class. Firm has experienced and is continuing to experience rapid growth in clients and employees. Team members are nice, helpful, fun to work with. Management is crazy smart and savvy; kind folks too. Generally speaking, you get as much responsibility as you want.

    Cons

    These are all just minor downsides, and more growing pains of an expanding company. Sometimes the work hours are long, but it's not a sweatshop by any means. Pay and benefits aren't too bad; again it's a small and rapidly growing company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep innovating, keep up the good work. Everyone is excited about where we're headed.
