    I have been working at Kim Graham & Associates full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I am so proud to be part of the quality of publicity work and brand consulting that comes out of that office. Work culture promotes creative thinking, sharing of ideas and group brainstorming, but also highly values independent work ethic. Hand picked team - everybody brings complementing strengths and skill sets to the table. Good chemistry between colleagues. Playful and bright work environment with both Mac and PC options. There is lots of flexibility and opportunity for career growth - employees have the opportunity to shape their jobs.

    Cons

    Open concept office sometimes makes it challenging to focus.

    Pros

    They'll hire people with little to no experience, so if you're desperate for a gig fresh out of school your odds are pretty good.

    Cons

    Literally everything else. Complete and utter lack of: organization, training, company culture. Competition between employees seemingly encouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think there is anything that can be done to fix this company as long as it is under current management, bad decisions are seemingly the only ones ever made.

    I worked at Kim Graham & Associates full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - You'll never be bored - there's so much to do and not enough people to do it
    - Junior employees seem to get a lot of experience in a short amount of time

    Cons

    - Complete lack of organization
    - No employee appreciation
    - No company culture
    - Lots of unpaid overtime
    - Little to no training (resulting in lack of employee trust and lots of micromanaging)
    - Not a positive learning environment
    - Still no office computers after 2+ years of being a company (have to use personal laptops)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Contract an office manager strictly for organizational and administrative tasks
    - An effort needs to be made to satisfy employee needs - provide them with the tools they need to do their job *efficiently*
    - A "we value you and want to keep you" mentality should be adopted over the "everyone has to pay their dues" mentality
