    I have been working at Hanapin Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's an amazing team atmosphere - everyone supports each other and contributes to a fun office atmosphere. There's a dedication to continued education - monthly training is great. Plenty of personal growth opportunities by writing for the blog or speaking at conferences. Also it's an expanding company with interesting clients (and don't forget free snacks!)

    Cons

    The nature of the job as an account manager means that client work can be stressful. Can occasionally have to work extra hours to get all your work done.

    I worked at Hanapin Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The co-workers are nice and friendly, however high-turnover makes it hard to build relationships.

    Thorough training to introduce employees to paid search.

    Cons

    Terrible Management - The most untrusting environment I have ever worked in. It hurt morale and productivity.

    High Turnover - Low compensation and benefits leads to high turnover. By the time I left there were only a few people still at the company who I started with.

    Hard to Become An Expert - Because of the high turnover and lack of experience of new employees, it's almost impossible to learn and grow beyond the basics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect.

    I worked at Hanapin Marketing full-time

    Pros

    - (Friendly and Socialble Peers) Some of the co-workers you'll have are some of the nicest people you'll meet.
    - (Environment) Open and relaxing office space, very close to downtown Bloomington hotspots.
    - (Entry Level Learning) If you have just finished high school or college it's a nice stepping stone.

    Cons

    - (Stalin/Hitler Leadership) The owner is extremely difficult to work with and work for. He has issues controlling his anger and frequently rages on his employees with profanity when things aren't going his way.

    He is quick to appologize in these circumstances, but he may have mental stability issues or may not be able to handle the daily stresses of people managment.

    - (Inmaturity and Turnover) The company has always been young and growing rather than seasoned and professional. For this reason and the owners temper tantrums the company has an extremely high turn over rate and has great difficulty keeping talent.

    - (Compensation) The owner has a strict mentality of getting something for nothing. This effects all things and can help the company bottom line thrive which may attribute to it staying aflot when big clients leave. Where you'll see this is in your pay and benefits. If you have more than 3 years experience you'll probably be better compensated somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek some mental health counseling to address anger/rage issues. Allow your employees ownership and do your very best to keep the top talent with the company. Change the image to a professional culture rather than a party culture. It's a company not a daycare and the space and decorum should feel that way.

    I have been working at Hanapin Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with great clients and brands, personal branding opportunities through PPCHero and Hero Conf, and less clients per account manager than competing agencies (1-6 with an average of 4).

    Cons

    Agency life ain't always easy. The company and clients have high expectations for employees, which can be daunting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on core priorities. Let the team know what the most important thing they can do to help the company grow is.

    I worked at Hanapin Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Hanapin offers a comprehensive training program so it is great for recent graduates.

    Cons

    Associates have way more clients than can effectively be maintained, thus the quality of work is poor. Most of your coworkers will be recent graduates, so not much learning potential after you complete training. Senior management is immature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Do not put your employees down. Trust your employees. Appreciate your employees. Share the wealth.
