    I have been working at REPUCOM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been with Repucom for 6 months now and have enjoyed my experience on the whole. Strong leadership who are smart, approachable, supportive and demand great work, but also know when it's time to close the laptop and have some fun. Also, we have access to data across the industry, worldwide, that no one else has, so it's a huge competitive advantage.

    Cons

    We are a bit on the lean side as far as resources go, but that's improving day by day. Also, our account team is a bit on the junior side, but additional resources and new blood is coming in to add expertise, and depth that we need.

    Advice to Management

    Things are going well, but consider adding staff to support the massive growth plans. Otherwise, keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Learnt how one should NOT be at personnel!

    Cons

    Absolutely horrible people in the management in India - biased, incompetent, unprofessional and egoistic to the core. Just being polite with the words here.

    Pros

    The company is an "in" to get build your network in the US sports market. Young, vibrant environment with a reliable mix of geeks, frat kids, mean girls, super chill

    Cons

    Very poor, ego-centric management (North America) with a rampant problem of favoritism. Sub-standard workflow process, lack of structure, and constant re-structuring every few months. No clear path of progression, unclear/ambiguous role expectations - in account management, you can expect to be directly held accountable for production processes, price structuring, determining & producing the content of a sold project never before executed (being "inventive" is a must); and hard selling. All of the above strongly impact the integrity of the final Repucom product.

    Advice to Management

    Assume accountability vs. encouraging a finger-pointing culture & ignoring the drivers of such high turnover. Recognize successes team-wide & take an active interest in mentorship and developing all of your talent. Lead.

    Pros

    Extremely unprofessional management. They lie to you during the interview process and do not provide any training. It is not a real business and they seem like they don't know what they are doing. If you interview get all your answers in writing so you can take legal action afterwards. The worst place I have ever worked.

    Cons

    I am sure they will go out of business shortly. The Stamford, CT Headquarters is a ghost town since most employees work from home except the interns. There is no company morale, no culture and senior management doesn't care enough to go into the office.

    Advice to Management

    Repucom will be out of business in the United States in a couple of years. They are funded by a Private equity firm that is maintaing the salary of the CEO but once the private equity firm stops funding them the boat will sink. Really be careful with this company.

    I worked at REPUCOM full-time

    Pros

    Sports oriented clients, global footprint,

    Cons

    Inexperienced middle management, low salary, poor workflow process, constant state of panic and blame

    Advice to Management

    While I worked at Repucom I was expected to constantly pick up the slack of employees that either left the company or were poorly trained to do their job. The success of my position was completely determined by the amount of sales I locked, but due to poor workflow structure, a undertrained and understaffed Analytics department, and zero marketing support I spent most of my time fighting to produce work for the clients already had. As with many jobs, I was also frustrated because new hires that had the same job description as me would make a significant amount more money. When I talked to management about it they were very blunt saying "that is the deal I cut."

    Pros

    Cons

    daily over hours, no benefits, extremely high turn over of employees (hire and fire), very low salary, no trustworthy HR, no strategy, no communication, If u dont want do expect anything, then welcome to to the dead end company - the worst place you will ever work for.

    Advice to Management

    go back to schol and learn how to manage a company including leading employees in an effectively way. that means being respectful and honest and dont pull employees' legs. very poor environment without any kind of perspectives and motivations. as soon Ive got a new job, i am off. thank you for nothing!
