Started off well, but nothing lasts forever.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at ICON International full-time

Prosgood atmosphere for young people just getting in the game.
Several parties throughout the year to keep moral up.
Most people are friendly, but few could learn to be a little more friendly with their co-workers.
Decent work/life balance. Some late days, but for most part not too bad.

ConsDepending on your department, advancement is anywhere from possible to don't hold your breath - a lot of log jams with older positions, and company doesn't seem to be expanding any longer.
Management could learn to work together more. Many times multiple projects come in with staggered starts, but same due dates, then act surprised that we're working on someone else's project due at the same time. Would get feeling that they were more comfortable harping on the employees about getting THEIR stuff done over the other managers stuff, rather than adjusting due date that they themselves have set.
Business casual setting.
Pay is not much if you start with company -- come in after a few years experience and they'll make you a decent offer.
Some depts are very clicky...read as if you don't fit in with them, you'll change or they'll spit you out.
The quality of clients has gone down. Company used to on board new clients strictly by using their own sales dept and barter. Nowadays, it seems like they bid out for new clients thru OMC sister companies more often than not.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork with your employees! Too much just get it done attitude. Could benefit from a younger mind or two that's more in touch with current state of media.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
