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

    Pros

    Entrepreneur driven in allowing you to focus on areas you are most passionate about, flexible in allowing for working from home and your schedule (and summer fridays!) , full of genuine, outgoing, and extremely intelligent people, a really great place to work! Also the smallness of the agency allows you to see a project from start to client facing presentation which is hard to find, especially working with such big and well known companies! Free healthcare, vision and dental benefits also help out.

    Cons

    Salary is less than optimal but is outweighed by the many pros, not many know SKIM so credibility for future jobs might not be as strong compared to working for a well known MR firm, it's actually located in HOBOKEN, not NYC- so reverse commute for most of us =/

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very well done! Thanks!

    I have been working at SKIM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The co-workers are amazing, which makes coming to work nice. The leaders of the US offices are open and easily accessible, and everyone is always wiling to listen to suggestions. The work is always evolving which keeps you interested in what you are doing, and the organization has established incredible relationships with clients who challenge you but respect you.

    Cons

    There is a lack of unity and connections between the offices, which is becoming even more of a concern with the rapid growth of the organization. Especially in the US, work load is not managed well enough and you often see people working late at night and on weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Preserve the culture of the organization, minimize the differences between the offices, decide on a clear structure with set initiatives and see them the full way through

    Pros

    Very collaborative work environment, colleagues are always willing to help out. Smart, down to earth people with an international mindset who are really working on things they are interested in. You can feel the growth mindset of the people and the fact that SKIM is expending world wide is very interesting.
