    Pros

    Integer creates a very great environment in terms of culture. The people are what make this company. You work with all sorts of people from different walks of life and you learn so much, not only as a creative individual, but a person.

    Cons

    It's very top heavy and those at the top are too comfortable with the safe route. It's also hard to move up unless you fully have an understanding of how to work the system. Hard and good work is often unrecognized.

    Advice to Management

    Please recognize when people are working hard and need to move up. I understand there are a lot of hoops to jump through and a lot of "behind the scene" action that needs to be taken, but take them. A lot of great people have left this company simply because they were stagnant.

    Pros

    Feel well taken care of here. Family is important and when the need arises, there is never an issue of me putting my family first.
    Rarely need to work excessively long hours.
    Positive work environment.
    Fun activities and events.
    Team building exercises.
    Company functions.
    Competitive pay.
    Not downtown so no parking or commuting headaches.

    Cons

    Specialize in shopper marketing, which can be a little ho-hum on the excitement scale if you're used to traditional ad work.
    Mediocre insurance that is very expensive. They don't cover much.
    Closed off, cube-farm.
    Not a lot of opportunity to work with people from other teams, departments.

    Advice to Management

    Bring down the cube walls.

    Pros

    Great parties, some fun coworkers, great vacation at the holidays and excellent support staff. You also get to work on some really great accounts.

    Cons

    Senior management is incompetent. Most of them are on the older side and have been there forever which means they can play favorites. Very old school "boys club" atmosphere (including the women) in senior leadership and especially on beer accounts. Terrible internal communication. Nobody knows anything until it has already happened. Zero transparency.
    Can also feel like a frat house at times. Which makes it hard for some employees to work when there is so much drinking going on during Friday afternoons. Very lenient HR policies. Not much of a chance to be creative.

    Advice to Management

    Step it up. You have great employees and great clients but all of your long-term people are starting to leave. Aren't you wondering why?

    Pros

    College-like atmosphere
    annual/monthly parties and fundraisers
    employees become lifers
    open door policy
    autonomous work schedule, although some take advantage (ie. are never available)

    Cons

    Many to list...

    departments work in silos
    only upper management sees any growth
    unnecessary meetings prohibit work from getting accomplished
    many employees are more focused on personal matters on the job and mgmt turns a blind eye
    raises are a joke
    pay is average/below average

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within rather than hiring new. Listen to your employees.
