    I worked at Socialarc full-time

    Pros

    Good place to start to gain professional experience. Junior staff is generally talented and energetic. Upper management (e.g., Group Account Directors, VP's, etc.) is generally very supportive of junior team members. Close-knit group that helps support one another through the ups and downs of the agency. CEO provides team members with room to grow, though to a limit.

    Cons

    Incredibly volatile and emotional CEO who often micro-manages and fails to fully recognize, appreciate, and support upper management and junior staff. Company direction is lacking focus, feels short-sighted, and switches every few months. Junior team is limited in client interaction, specifically when it comes to presenting and developing marketing plans, due to strong upper hand from CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO needs to be more trusting of upper management and junior team. Upper management needs to be given room to provide more direction for the company, and allow their junior team to have more freedom. More collaboration needs to be encouraged and welcomed.

    I worked at Socialarc full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    upper management tries their best to build office culture

    Cons

    - low paying (probably lowest base salary in the bay area)
    - no opportunities for growth
    - been around this many years and team is barely growing...not a good sign for a start up

    I worked at Socialarc full-time

    Pros

    Let me think on that...

    Cons

    The CEO is neurotic and hostile. The environment is one of the worst I have ever worked in with expectations ridiculous mainly because none of the management has worked for agencies or been in social. They read blogs and change their mind every 5 min....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go work for a real agency
