    Demeaning management, under-appreciated, toxic environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Lombard, IL

    ProsGood advertising experience for entry level

    ConsManagement will never value their employees, even if you work your butt off
    Toxic environment
    Can turn a very positive person into a very negative and sad person
    No raises (your not worth it) they avoid it like the plague
    Only hire people out of college so they can pay them less
    No training, expectations are unrealistic
    Work life balance- extremely poor- can't leave for doctors appointment (have to use vacation) even if you work overtime quite frequently
    6 days for holidays a year..... that's it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your workers, doesn't have to be through monetary ways, but just a verbal great job once.. ever.. would be appreciated.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overall a neat small marketing firm to start your career with.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople are generally nice and the working environment is pretty neat. A lot of interns to work with so the overall working atmosphere is young and energetic.

    ConsThe location is not very convenient, not many place to rent for an apt nearby unless you have a house there. A lot of traffic from Chicago to Lombard everyday.

    Save your energy (and happiness), so corrupt it will make you sick.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Lombard, IL

    ProsGreat co-workers, good location.. that's about it.

    ConsUnder paid, over worked.. harassing. No recognition. Don't waste your time. Seriously, you'll only last a few months because you'll be so miserable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI could go on and on about how management needs to respect their employees, but what's the point? You can't give them advice. They won't listen.

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

    Exceptional employees working for a corrupt company.

    Account Executive (Former Employee)
    Lombard, IL

    ProsThere are incredibly talented individuals that work here but usually only last a year or so due to unrealistic expectations and a demeaning work envoirnment.

    ConsThere is a high turnover rate. Management puts high pressure on employees to work crazy hours with no recognition and it is essentially a sweatshop. It is well known that there is one way to the top (lets just say it helps if you are a woman).

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your top performers with respect and try to create an enviornment of teaching, not fear. Do not burn all former employee bridges.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Just ok.

    Graphic Designer (Former Employee)
    Lombard, IL

    ProsGreat team of designers. Fun Christmas and bowling parties

    ConsLow wages. Not much recognition for good work. Pressure to work overtime without the overtime pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay people what they are worth. Tell people they've done a good job when project is complete instead of asking it to be done quicker the next time. Don't expect people to stay late if they aren't getting paid for it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
