    Pros

    Employees are for the most part kind and all work hard. Company tries to promote a fun environment.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement in certain departments. Salary increases are apparently non-existent without a fight. Long hours much of the time and no comp time or rewards for hard or good work. Account teams are often clueless about how to execute creative and are very good at playing the blame game versus being accountable for their own incompetence. Senior level management is out of touch with what it takes to support and acknowledge the employees getting the work done. Drinking and parties doesn't appeal to all. But they are very good at patting themselves on the back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't penalize an employee for having long term career goals.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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?

    Former Employee - Production Manager in Lakewood, CO
    Former Employee - Production Manager in Lakewood, CO

    I worked at Integer Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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