    Pros

    creative, great people, dedicated to their pursuits to help brands become better know. Beautiful new offices and very positive energy at the company.

    Cons

    no clear reporting lines for lower level and junior staff. Very unclear directions. Not much focus on employee development. Trying to maintain its small company feel but it is not too big to do that without implementing some structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement better resource management systems and transparency to all staff. Have staff "own" their responsibilities. More clear reporting lines so that staff knows to whom they are accountable. Lack of accountability leads to wasted resources, duplication of efforts, confusion, frustration and reduced profits.

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit is valued and the client mix is pretty good for being in marketing.

    Cons

    You'll fly by the seat of your pants and it's a crappes shoot whether your manager has the time of day for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be tough on middle and senior management to make sure employees have clear understanding of expectations and can get face time with their managers. When senior staff are overextended, entry level employees bear the weight of project management but get none of the credit for doing so. If they step up and make timely decisions, they're resented by their superiors. If they don't the project suffers and/or they end up working unreasonable hours. Ultimately, it's the CEO's flighty, anxious style that trickles down through the company.

    Be very cautious; good experience but extremely long and tedious hours with zero pay and a slim hope to be a full-time

    I worked at LeadDog Marketing Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    good experience for resume; worked with multiple accounts in a fast paced environment.

    Cons

    very long hours with very little respect from other employees. they keep you in the dark about possible full-time employment. I interned with 6 other people, none of which were hired full-time; some either quit, rejected their offer, or were let go; interns were treated like slaves

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make it a more enjoyable work environment; treat the interns like people, not like dogs (no pun intended)

    Pros

    The people are very excited about the work that they are doing. Each employee strives to deliver the best possible results to the clients and will work hard to do so while still enjoying a creative and fun environment.

    Cons

    The changes that come with a growing company mean contrasting views on the future roles of individuals and programs as a whole. There are some areas of miscommunication between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should strive to create better relationships between the departments and be more transparent about their strategic decisions.
