    I worked at The Lacek Group as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    great environment and great people. Challenging work with fast turn-arounds. Fun to work there. Sad I had to leave when my contract was over.

    Cons

    very "fast-and-slow". You're either working a lot, or not working at all (in my experience).

    Pros

    Great people to work with, management tries to understand employee concerns and improves upon feedback

    Cons

    Low salary ... I like everything else about the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing a good job, but you should try to pay your employees more. You have great people who ought to be better financially compensated or they will leave.

    Recurring campaigns can create monotony.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize more of the cogs doing the hard work every day than just the same group again and again.

    I worked at The Lacek Group as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very social atmosphere, great people, and a great place to work, especially if you're tech savvy. Above-average compensation for a Twin Cities agency. Lots of social activities available. Lots of respect for upper management. Highly recommend working here if you get a chance.

    Cons

    Intern program isn't very structured. Meetings are expected to start 5-10 minutes late. Middle management is good, but not at the same level as upper management.

    Great atmosphere, great teams. Focus on hiring quality candidates.

    Slow company growth, not enough opportunities for advancement. Imbalance of work done to recognition earned. Salary increases are always slow, small, and delayed. Sub-par employees are not dealt with in any efficient manner.

  9. Nice people, cold management. They need to work more on new business so they don't have such boom-bust cycles.

    Pros

    Great people, fun atmosphere, sometimes.

    Cons

    They are quick to have layoffs when business slows down? It's probably because they are owned by a huge corporation that justs looks at numbers, not people.
