    Pros

    I was here briefly but overall the experience was great. It's a fast-paced busy environment but the energy is positive and most everyone was friendly and generous.

    Cons

    I came onto the project in the final phase and jumped immediately into the work. It would have been nice if there had been time for more orientation with operating systems/best practices within the company

    Advice to Management

    Did not work here long enough.

    Pros

    Great company perks, smart talented and supportive coworkers who look out for each other, interesting projects

    Cons

    The management was very difficult to work with. It often felt like it was managers vs everyone else. They didn't empathize or understand the difficulties we went through and were often times controlling and bossy

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to the employees and try to earn their respect and trust

    Pros

    Great people, casual environment, decent work/life balance. Relatively flat management means even juniors get heard.

    Cons

    Confused about what kind of an agency it is, definitely in a transition period - needs to focus on production or marketing but is generally stuck in production mode where it makes the most money.

    Advice to Management

    Fewer freelancers - invest more in a smaller and better managed team of full-timers. Don't mistake bagels and beer for culture or happy employees - but do know that the people are the biggest pro!

    Pros

    They have consistent work with prominent brands

    Cons

    It's a revolving door, much like most creative agencies

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees.. Both freelance and staff

    Pros

    Lots of good people in the Boston office. Good culture. Some top-notch clients.

    Cons

    Company is very much focused on the event space, so folks looking to do digital will likely feel they are being neglected (unless you work for Genuine Interactive subsidiary). Executive team includes a few people I didn't trust.

    Pros

    Decent environment, but a lot of fake employees.

    Cons

    Jack has a bad habit of letting people go with less than 2 days notice. Pay is decent, but less than comparable positions with other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to pay more attention and rewards those who deserve a promotion, instead of constantly hiring outside for open positions.
