    I worked at Intertrend as an intern

    Pros

    You get to work with people passionate about their job in a fun work environment. Employees are encouraged to find everyday inspiration through art & culture to maintain a healthy mind.

    Cons

    It was difficult to understand all the moving pieces of the business as a intern. An overview of the services provided by the agency and how each department works with one another would have been helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in the professional development of your employees.

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

    Pros

    I got to learn a lot about the advertising industry through interTrend. The company's culture is very family oriented and thats one of the things I liked the most in a working environment. I got to meet a lot of impactful people in the industry and be inspired by all the game changers that the agency is connected to.

    Cons

    Work hours might be a bit rough sometimes, but it comes with the job. On the bright side, you learn a lot and also bond closely with all your co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Might need to hire 1 or 2 more people in each department with all the additional work coming in.

    Current Employee - Manager in Long Beach, CA

    I have been working at Intertrend full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    collaborative, friendly, lots of hard working staff, Fortune 500 clients, small company means you get to work on a lot of different things, Fortune 500 clients are great but the company also does a lot of work for pro bono clients which shows they care about the community, especially Long Beach.

    Cons

    nothing that isn't true for all ad agencies...if you're looking for a routine/predictable day type of job, don't look here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get to know the young staff because there might be hidden talents there.

    Some clients limit our growth due to our background as an Asian American Agency.

    Pros

    - One of the biggest Asian Market agencies
    - Has a lot of fun activities just like all other big agencies

    Cons

    - Have to learn everything on you own (they pretty much just dump everything on you and have you figure it out)
    - If you don't want to be stuck in the Asian market, don't work here
    - Very political
    - Under pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Be more transparent to you subordinates
    - Appreciate your subordinates
    - Don't be threatened if your subordinates are smarter than you

    I worked at Intertrend

    Pros

    Proactive about team building but I hear that's common among the Asian Advertising Agencies.

    Cons

    Base most strategies on assumptions, seems like a very costly way to test your theories on how to roll out campaigns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on your reputation of "political environment"

  11. If you are slightly serious about advertising, avoid this shop

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Long Beach, CA

    I worked at Intertrend full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fortune 500 clients
    Common perks about working in an agency
    Opportunities to get in the asian community
    If you are lucky and happen to fall in favors by the bosses, everyone will treat you nice

    Cons

    Typical Asian company - spend way too much time on politics, personal favors. Your success will not be measured based on performance, but how well you can get along with your superiors and the upper management.

    Significantly lower compensation then industry standard

    You will get into the delusion thinking you are well recognized and working in the "most digital savvy agency in the world" (who calls themselves that anyway?). The fact is - there is no measurement of effectiveness in the work this shop delivers. This is very limited data supporting the statement this agency is claiming. The worst of all, you learn so little as the rest of the world changes beyond rapidly every single day.

    If you are slightly serious about advertising and technology, and aren't interested in getting a comfortable work that teaches you nothing, find a real ad agency.
