    I worked at RedPeg Marketing as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fun work, I love the long hours. The younger kids who have no energy, and moan about how hard the work is, it's not, people under 30 are spoiled and don't know what hard work is....

    Cons

    Leads are jerks, so rude. Threatened by someone suggesting an easier or more efficient way to do something. Lots of discrimination going on here. If you want hot young girls and boys working for you than put it in your ads. Terrible about payment, especially if you were hired through another company. I've been waiting for over a month and a half for payment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously. Don't offer a BA a job that they agree to do and take it away from them at the last minute. Pay on time. People who work for you are only numbers. And stop the discrimination. Hard work is not recognized here, it's how short your shorts are. I could run circles around the people they hire, but yet they keep offering them the jobs instead of me.

    Pros

    Innovative experiential marketing campaigns
    Work hard, play hard environment

    Cliquey 'frat house' environment
    Poor compensation and long work hours
    Feeling based performance review process instead of S.M.A.R.T. system
    Lack of empowerment at lower levels
    Big investments in 'senior management' without proper financial analysis
    Good people but in the wrong roles (at the time)
    Vulnerable to massive layoffs if revenue generation doesn't reach/exceed goals
    Over-structured account management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest and empower your lower level account managers
    Provide SMART/360 degree performance reviews
    Don't try and grow too fast without proper financial planning
    Stop spending so much on your executive team and promote from within
    Reward those who work hard

    I worked at RedPeg Marketing as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I love the type of work I get to do when I get to do it. So the rig.ht company makes the perfect event just so much fun,it doesn't seem like work

    Cons

    Then you wait, and you wait, for your check and it doe not come on the date it's promised.
    Event though some event companies say they are not sure - they tell you 60 to 90 days. Hello!
    Don't be evasive with money we already earned

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are not sure, please tell us ,we work very hard at these events, just like you did to obtain them . It wouldn't be an event without US! If you know a company is not good at getting payroll out to YOU and US. Be wise before taking them on.

    I worked at RedPeg Marketing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great clients and opportunities. A funhouse vibe on the surface that works well for junior employees. Never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Big time management issues. Most senior leadership micromanages creative and has a controlling mentality but doesn't let the pros with maturity do what they do best. This place could be a juggernaut if it wasn't so tightly squeezed. There is a consistent pattern of three year terms and also of senior talent leaving after pushing for meaningful change for too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go. Find great leaders, give them some meaningful equity or upside and let them run.

    I have been working at RedPeg Marketing

    Pros

    Being able to work in the field. Not a typical 9 to 5 ... some days its a great thing ...some days its not.

    Cons

    The office does not listen to Brand Ambassadors or Marketing Managers in the field. You learn very early on its an us vs them mentality. Field employees refer to office associates as The Wizard of Oz because they make crazy decisions that impact teams and refuse to come out to see how it works

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    before you make a decision about what happens in the field ... maybe you should ask your BA's or MM's instead of putting together magical formulas in the office. The CEO is great but newer staff will easily bring this company down if he isnt made aware soon

    I worked at RedPeg Marketing as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    + Great internal long-standing team
    + Inspiring Management
    + Preparation, Organization and Operations is always at 100%

    Cons

    - Hiring process can at times be mis-leading as to current standing
    - Compensation Rates tend to be slightly below average overall

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a strong asset in NY who is ready to be dedicated to the company with a full team and local network available, would encourage better use of the local resource(s) available.
