    Pros

    There are lots of different projects to work on since it is a client based business. This exposes you to many different domains and types of projects, so it's a great place to learn a lot of new things in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    There are limited growth opportunities and it's tough to maintain a work/life balance.

    Pros

    quiet - if you work on Honda, stable

    Cons

    not the same company - with the take over by MXM all the old Genex folks are gone

    Advice to Management

    figure out what you want to be and stick with it.

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance. Optimistic ambitions. Great people.

    Cons

    Inconsistent leadership across the organization. Lacking clear identity and strategic development within the company. Creative leadership marginalized.

    Advice to Management

    Honest communication is paramount, not lip service and smoke screens.

    Pros

    Genex offers a strong work life balance that I believe is extremely difficult to find in the digital agency world.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can get quite repetitive in terms of tasks and does not traditionally work with innovative companies that want to push the boundaries in terms of their products, etc.

    Pros

    Genex excels in the technology department when delivering solutions to clients. The office is dog friendly, so this makes working there fun if you like animals.

    Cons

    Very safe, no risk in innovation. Work can be a safe and unchallenging. This could be remedied by winning more interesting work from wider variety of industries. A tendency to do the minimum level of interesting work to appease client. The culture can be secretive and rumor-ridden.

    Advice to Management

    Mine and utilize the talent that you have, because you have a talented group of people. This human resource is not reaped to its greatest potential. Better define job roles and descriptions so people are accountable for what the work they do.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Genex is that management is very respectful of work life balance, unlike many agencies. Great co-workers are another plus for Genex. There are very bright, talented people at Genex and a strong environment of cooperation.

    Cons

    Downsides are typical for a small company: limited opportunities for growth and mediocre benefits. You also sometimes catch glimpses of a strong clique among long-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be quicker to communicate with all the employees. They don't always seem to recognize that absence of communication leads to inaccurate rumors.
