    I worked at MicroMass Communications full-time for less than a year

    Great people to work with, little involvement with upper management.

    Cons

    Typical agency environment - only as stable as the book of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide clear vision.

    Pros

    Good hours, great office space, open work environment.

    Cons

    Seems like a fun environment to work in, but looks can be deceiving. There is a disconnect when it comes to communication within departments, and very little encouraging feedback. Lack of culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should hold themselves more accountable and offer positive feedback to employees. Offer training and ways to grow.

    Pros

    Healthy environment focused on culture, quality of work and the two partners genuinely care about the employees

    Cons

    I wish people would not judge from the past. We have learned from experience and made this a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you have been doing. The last 10 months have been difficult but we are so much better with the changes put into place.

    Pros

    Worthwhile, engaging work. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    No management or clear direction whatsoever. Good employees are constantly cut with no warning and no apparent reason other than cost savings. Communication is nonexistent. Consistency? Ditto. Company lacks strong leadership. Changes occur way too frequently. Employees have no confidence or trust in leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a plan and stick to it. Stop cutting jobs so frequently and foster some employee loyalty. Develop consistent, effective management.

    Pros

    Beautiful office park. Great weather.

    Cons

    Lots of politics and fighting between departments. Creative department has a revolving door thanks to an incompetent creative director. Account management is just starting to improve with a good hire at the top. Little understanding of advertising or direct response marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul the creative department. Too many C level personnel with overlapping duties. Behavioral science team needs to be in touch with customer behavior, not just patient behavior.

    I worked at MicroMass Communications

    Pros

    Possibility of doing work that helps people on a certain pharmaceutical regimes. Also creating exciting products in a short cycle that could benefit your skills and portfolio.

    Cons

    Management gives free reign to advancement and creation of new titles. Roles, tasks and due dates are undefined. Suffers from extreme lack of communication. Posses a lack of understanding for web and technology and without the creative infrastructure to support it sales. Management's ardor or disapproval can change based on whimsical concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at MicroMass Communications

    Pros

    Young, forward-looking company that seems to always be seeking ways to improve how things are done. Good ideas for self-promotion and some good work for clients. Community-oriented and looking for ways to engage the workforce in the community to make it a better place to live and work for all.

    Cons

    Too little communication between departments leads to missed opportunities to improve the workflow. Departments seem to organize into cliques and don't mingle well with other departments to some extent. Of course there are always exceptions to this and many people seem to be able to communicate easily with everyone in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working to make sure everyone in the company knows the goals of the company and how management plans to empower the workforce to achieve those goals.
