    Small Agency with Great Culture!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat culture / people. Innovative web dev agency. Valuable UX / UI strategy and engineers. Strong leadership with lots of experience. Limited capabilities to offer which often times leads to executional partnerships and unpredictable growth / rev stream.

    ConsLimited offering which leads to unstable rev outlook.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExpand full-service digital offering into creative, media, and stronger brand planning to develop evergreen partnerships. Invest in talent and relationships to grow in offering.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great people and learning experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Maumee, OH

    ProsThe people are very enjoyable and understanding. The work environment is fun, and many of the people there are definitely experts. A very flexible company that works on many different things. Can be fast paced, which I believe is a good thing.

    ConsMany of the key employees get pressured with too much responsibility. Tech leads and other key players are forced to sacrifice too much work/life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people, flexibility, sometimes feels unstable/unpredictable

    Interactive Designer (Current Employee) Maumee, OH

    ProsGreat people, awesome hard working staff, get to learn a lot and work on new and (generally) exciting projects, coffee, soft drinks, snacks, satisfactory benefits, 401k, best digital agency in the area. Increased transparency on company health over the last couple years.

    ConsFeels like you work double time, projects are often pushed to get started prematurely resulting in a lot of time spent re-doing things, communication and organizational issues though not incredibly more than other agencies for the type of work and pace, often times there's a general feeling of instability due to project budget overages asd lack of work, general interactions with some members of management sometimes leave you with a "will I make it through the next round of layoffs" feeling.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive employees better job security. When layoffs happen, explain what employees need to do/not do to be selected in the next round.

    Exciting and fast paced

    Web Design (Former Employee) Maumee, OH

    ProsAwesome people
    Equipment Allowance
    Lunch allowance and free lunch fridays
    Seminars
    Highly Networkable

    ConsSalary, paid for working forty work hours, but it feels like your working all the time always.
    Timelines sometimes unreasonable for strict deadlines, end up spending more time reporting time than doing work.
    Not much else in terms of cons. Hanson Inc rocks entirely.

    Strugging with overcoming the hump

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Maumee, OH

    ProsFlexible working environment, very friendly management and staff, comfortable work campus, generous on-site benefits (free lunches, beverages, snacks). Willing to take risks to make clients happy.

    ConsPoor client base, inability to make the leap to the next level of business in their environment, poor pay structure, insular upper management. Below-average traditional benefit package.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAt some point, management has to either accept the fact that they will be a small agency, or be willing to look outside their walls to find people who can take them to that level.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Average company to work for in IT

    IT Consultant (Former Employee) Bristol, England (UK)

    ProsGood salaries on offer for people with relevant skills & experience. High quality working environment, company is serious about environmental issues & H&S.

    ConsThere is currently a cost cutting program across the company including compulsory redundancies, affecting staff morale. In my department, management all seemed to know each other, and it was a bit of a closed shop for employees - who you knew was more important than what you knew.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to managing effects of cost cutting program. HR - promotion could be more about merit and less about connections.
