    Pros

    Splash Media is a great place to begin a marketing career. Everyone is collaborative and works together on big projects, no matter what level you are. The culture is second to none, because of both the CEO and the employees themselves.

    Cons

    It's a very fast-paced, stressful environment. However, that is social media marketing agency life no matter where you are working.

    Pros

    Your team members are fun and collaborative.

    Cons

    Staying effective and consistent while still delivering results to clients. There is somewhat of an old school "cronie" atmosphere. Company has a tendency to under-perform and then "spin" results to clients.

    We appreciate your comments though we would disagree with "spin" results. We have been in the business of social media for almost 5 years and we strive to meet and exceed the goals of our clients ... More

    I worked at Splash Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employees were amazing to work with. I made some lifelong connections there.

    Cons

    The Executive management changed policies constantly and held little to no respect for their employees or clients. The turnover rate was around 33% so about every 3 months new employees started while other employees resigned. the same with clients. the average lifespan of a client was 3-6 months.

    Advice to Management

    I have heard they sold finally so my opinions are of the original management execs. My immediate managers were good people and treated us the best they could under the executive rule.

    Thanks for your comment. The original company was purchased in June 2013 and since then, a much different, positive culture has replaced the original management style. We hope you speak with some ... More

    Pros

    The best part of working at Splash is the collective thinking that happens here. I work on several accounts and its always great to know that my ideas are appreciated no matter what my title may be.

    Cons

    Sometimes the # of accounts can be overwhelming but its great to know that we have an open door policy with the managers and they are working to even out the load.

    Pros

    Splash is the greatest place I have ever worked. There are few places you can work and really have the opportunity to impact how the company grows. This is one of those rare gems.

    Cons

    For some, the work is too much...it's an agency! You have to be self-driven and willing to take chances.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. continue to create opportunities for advancement.

    I worked at Splash Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you don't know anything about social media and are desperate for experience, then you will get tons of it here. You'll be responsible for everything from client management to reporting to execution of a minimum of 6 clients.

    Cons

    You'll be working long hours for leadership that doesn't know anything about social. What they do know about is how to make money. That's all they care about and your personal life will suffer as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the reputation that you are building. There is no way that clients are not hearing about it and business will suffer as a result.

    Pros

    - Excellent co-workers (almost like family) - Peers genuinely care and are willing to help you out - Aesthetically pleasing workspace

    Cons

    - Unbearable amount of work dumped onto your lap - Lies to clients make expectations unrealistic - Poor management/ not all on same page - No clear direction - Low salaries and awful benefits - They use the "Start-up/Entrepreneurial mentality" as an excuse to stick it to you

    Advice to Management

    Fire this group of management and start over
