    Great Place to Learn and Expand Knowledge

    Advertising Strategist (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat people to work with who are very knowledgeable. Great, laid back atmosphere helps with creativity. Started in the industry at Resolution, and learned so much that I took with me that will help me for the rest of my career.

    ConsVery slow HR. Takes months and months to get raises actually put in place after being told of the raise. Happened to many people in the Chicago office, because approvals have to go through OMG.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStick up for your employees and get things moving when something has been promised.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work on Big Company Clients, After Work Parties & Great When Single

    Natural Search Supervisor (Former Employee) New York, NY

    Pros1. Get wined and dined by Google and other vendors; especially Google - even if you are SEO
    2. Can easily work from home. So if you live in NJ or the other boroughs or L.I. or Westchester, etc, and need to work from home, it's easy to do.
    3. Get to work on some big accounts, big Fortune 500 clients - and sometimes with variety of projects
    4. the after work parties that happen occasionally are nice - perfect when you are single in the city; tedious when you are happily married and want to go home on the dot
    5. 2 weeks off between xmas and new years on top of your vacation and floating holidays - plus many other holidays off including certain federal holidays

    Cons1. 5 years ago, NYC office had some great & smart entrepreneurial people - not so the case now
    2. Very political and favoritism based
    3. You dont advance unless you are sales
    4. Everything is sales - always about sales; new business pitches or upsells, always something
    5. Customer Success is a foreign concept
    6. Those focused on the work and customer success are left in the dust for promotion
    7. Past supervisor, expect to be nothing but sales - and hope you got good supervisors and strategists and coordinators who can DO the work and make the client(s) happy so that you can upsell or cross sell

    Advice to Senior Managementyou need an account director who is in charge of sales and your other directors should be in charge of project management and customer success. or else add a project manager or associate director. or make your ADs project managers. Either way, make sure you have a mid level exec in charge of customer/client success. that makes the sales easier.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Ok launching pad, but wouldn't stick around

    Advertising Coordinator (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat people to work with
    Great work perks
    Meet great partners and vendors

    ConsOften long hours, and low pay compared to the work you do.

    OMD relationship can sometimes be choppy.

    Workload is very dependent on client.

    Management is slow to promote even after they've agreed that you are ready for one. And you will have been doing higher level work months before you get the promotion.

    Unfortunately, the bulk of the work will fall on you as a coordinator while your managers leave work early and generally don't do all that much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your employees. Pay attention to what's happening. Stop hiring incompetent people and maybe the turnover rate won't be so high. Stop recycling clients throughout teams, there's way too much account knowledge lost.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat fast paced environment to learn and grow with company. Resolution Media has a strong outlook for growth in all regions.

    ConsAgencies can be "work hard, play hard" environments. There can be long days/late nights, but also lots of fun.

    Good Agency to Learn At

    Program Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThe team was very supportive and there was a lot of learning. Great book of clients to get great experience on.

    ConsHigh turn-over rate. I had 7 managers in less than a year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't churn the clients from team to team. A lot of knowledge is getting lost.

    Introduction to Search Advertising SEM

    Paid Search Coordinator (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsBig name clients means that you get to do some things in search that smaller companies wouldnt be able to do. Chance to use many different tools and broaden understanding of industry.

    ConsWorkload completely depends on your team - some have a lot going on, some not as much. Professional developement also depends on your team. Some entry level people are pushed into the fire whereas others are stuck on the sidelines

    A great place to start.

    Paid Search Specialist (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    Pros- Some of the industry's best entry-level staff (a really smart group)
    - Interesting account opportunities (small businesses and huge corporations alike)
    - In general, a positive working environment with fun people
    - Great work-life balance, which is hard to find in this industry

    Cons- Once you hit supervisor level, there isn't much room to grow
    - Management is frequently too busy to take an active interest
    - A trend I see: promising people hit career stagnation and leave out of frustration
    - Being a part of Omnicom means you're held to a larger organization's rules and guidelines, so even when management wants to make changes, they frequently can't

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have some great lower level people that keep leaving to go to other agencies which offer more money and promotions as well as more interesting and diverse work. Put some effort into making them happy and you could do a lot better at growing the agency.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
