    Current Employee - Account Executive in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Account Executive in New York, NY

    I have been working at Peppercom full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Free sodas, free sodas, free sodas, ability to dress so down it looks like half the staff is going to do their laundry

    Cons

    The two old guys who own the place - the five really not bright partners who run the place - the mean one who throws things and yells, the tall one with a mean spirit worse then a witch, the short one with a Neapolitan complex, the beautiful one in San Francisco that is a real lady

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help the staff - see yourselves for who you are - the old guys stop luring at the young women who work there, partners well just leave the business or go work at the local supermarket

    Pros

    If you like working for jerks and comedy training I guess this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Not efficient, no one cares about employees even though they claim to (outside of a few "stars" or "golden children"), have directors who don't know or use best industry practices, people are rude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to address un-professionalism in your employees and while you're at it, try it for yourselves, too. You can catch more bees with honey than vinegar.

    Some nice people, but little lords and ladies jealously guard their power and make life miserable for the rest of us.

  7. Good Intern Program

    I worked at Peppercom

    Pros

    Peppercom has a strong intern program. Interns are given a variety of tasks and get to assist with real account work. They can potentially leave with some items for a portfolio.

    Cons

    The management is not as transparent as they claim. Also, expectations and responsibilities are not always clearly communicated to interns. Pay was also very low for all of the work and extra hours interns put in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More open/better communication, more clearly defined roles, particularly for interns. I also think interns should receive better compensation due to the expense of living in the NY metro area and all of the overtime most of them worked.

    Pros

    Management really cares about employees, generous benefits, great accounts, room for growth, well-rounded place to work, flexible with work/life balance

    Cons

    A little cliquey, compensation could be higher, workload occassionally unmanageable (although actively seeking solutions for employees)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the good work and working to improve where it's needed.

    I have been working at Peppercom

    Pros

    Very supportive management and co-workers. Real team atmosphere, drive to do a great job, and willingness to help others. Desire to do innovative work and to balance that with fun work environment.

    Cons

    Can be a lot of pressure and heavy workloads, but usually a solution found when raised. Very heavy senior management. Too much focus on client service at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act faster to address employee desires. Try to hire before workloads are too overwhelming. Get some more human resource support.
