    I worked at Springbox as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Springbox has created a fantastic culture for its employees. Mentors give their interns enough structure that they don't get bored, but enough space to really shine and take on new and fresh projects.

    Cons

    It's just the nature of the advertising industry, but turnover is rather high. Two and half years after interning, at least ten people I worked closely with were elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider paying their interns. It's understandable that students are hungry for industry experience but it's a marginal cost in the grand scheme of things.

    Great culture, fun team

    I worked at Springbox

    Pros

    Culture was fun and fast-paced. Very structured and process oriented agency. Heavy focus on individual growth and mentorship.

    Cons

    work-life balance was tough given the demands of clients inability to scale quickly for short-term projects. Company sold multiple times while there, so those transitions were scary, tough and ended in some loss of staff.

    Pros

    There is a great culture at Springbox. We work hard and play harder! I have not worked in such a collaborative environment as Springbox and truly enjoy going to work each day.

    Cons

    Though there is compensation for parking I do wish it was a bit more convenient.

    I have been working at Springbox full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is the first agency I've worked at where everyone is held accountable for their work. It's a great team environment and everyone is always willing to help each other out. After only being here a few weeks, I was able to start running my own projects with confidence because I had such a supportive team behind me.

    Cons

    The overall process is being refreshed but with most agency's that's always the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be open and honest about the company's goals and expectations.

    I have been working at Springbox full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've seen the leadership change a few times over the years and through all the change, good and bad, Springbox is still the best place I've ever worked. I try not to take it for granted and complain about the small stuff. I learn something new almost daily while working on challenging projects. The office is great, the people are great, and I am truly happy with my career at Springbox.

    Cons

    Still some work to be done to get all the teams to work together smoothly and understand processes because of the changes in staff and leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communication regarding the direction of the company open and continue bringing in exciting client work.

    Went through an acquisition earlier in the year which caused instability and employee turnover, but much better now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your new leadership has brought a clear vision and I believe everyone has bought in, keep it up.

    Open, collaborative environment.
    Fun place to work.
    Good potential for professional growth.
    Owner is excited and invested in the employees and business.

    Adoption rate of new or alternative software solutions moves fairly slow.
    Internal server setup could use some attention.
