    I have been working at Intermark Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Casual and I do mean CASUAL work environment. Most employees where shorts t shirts and flip flops when weather permits. The first place I have ever worked where it seems like everyone seems to like one another and is willing to help each other out if needed. One of the best things is that the company closes from Christmas through New Years giving the employees a long paid break. I didn't know a company like this existed in the South, much less Birmingham.

    Cons

    I actually can't think of any at this time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Intermark Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Intermark is a great place to start your career. You work with great and positive people. Plus, as an intern, you are doing more than making coffee and creating copies. You actually get involved with day-to-day work. It might be tedious, but at least you get real experience.

    Cons

    The internship experience is great if you are in the creative department. Every other department tends to be left out or not as engaged in the internship experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work, but invest a little bit more time to your interns.

    I have been working at Intermark Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very relaxed dress code (shorts and sandals for non-client-facing roles), relaxed flex-time policy, few onerous corporate overseer methodologies.

    Cons

    Poor benefits package. Expensive / limited health insurance. 401k matching limited and non-existent most years. Stagnant pay.

    STRONG tendency to hire from without in lieu of promoting from within.

    Strong focus on selling, weak focus on delivery.

     Little effective communication from management, who can seem to be secretive but really just have not thought to communicate to all stakeholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attach more rigor, accountability, or at least incredulity to sales staff - especially if they do more talking than closing.

    Account driven shop with no desire to do good work

    I have been working at Intermark Group

    Pros

    Intermark has a few good things going for it. Lots of freedom, nice location, a keg of beer and big name clients

    Cons

    Lack of company direction.
    Lots of dead weight in senior roles.
    Winning new business for the company is not enough to prevent you from being fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out who you are and quit hiring people under false representations of who you guys are.

    One of the best in Birmingham

    Pros

    Intermark is one of the best places to work in Birmingham if you want to do marketing, design or software engineering. A very casual and cool environment, the main headquarters in Birmingham is a big warehouse with a funky, quirky design (a big bus is lodged inside one of the areas and converted into a conference room).

    Free fruit, lots of opportunities to learn (company paid stipend), latest software tools and hardware, car washes, massages (nominal charges), casual dress environment, top notch designers, excellent software engineers, lots of web design projects to keep learning new things, and a young motivated leadership (the CEO and the director of IT are probably under 40, and very talented). If you want a Google-like environment in Birmingham, Intermark is it.

     Very few, if any, can compare in the area.

    Cons

    Better communication from leadership. May not be appropriate if you are looking for a more formal environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing - grow the company but please don't change the culture.

    I have been working at Intermark Group

    Pros

    During the good times, significant opportunities for salary increases. Also very entrepreneurial, you could get involved in interesting projects.

    Cons

    Some management issues in the occasional lack of direction and focus. Average morale among employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more consistent in defining the strategy of the company while not losing the entrepreneurial edge. Fire poor performers quicker and promote good performers faster as well.

    I have been working at Intermark Group

    Pros

    Great people to work with and learn from, very casual atmosphere, and plenty of training opportunities. Technical staff is top notch and helpful.

    Cons

    Often understaffed and overworked, but extra hours are rare - just long backlogs. Management seems to be fond of smoke and mirrors instead of sound development practices. The Interactive division's core competency is built around quality software development, but management pushes to run it like an advertising agency, focusing on speed and low price (often at the expense of quality, leading to expensive maintenance down the road).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build for the long run instead of pushing for short term profits.
