    Pros

    All employees at thought equity are dedicated and try to do right by their customers.

    Cons

    The sale of content is complicated and internal processes make it hard to service the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step in the shoes of your employees and their customers and gain a perspective from that vantage point. Understand all the issues our customers experience before you change something.

    The most deceptive and calculating executive leadership I've ever reported to.

    Pros

    the assets of the company

    Cons

    There really are no ups other than the assets. The turnover is extremely high. Employees are seen as disposable. Management is in it for the big payout when the company is sold

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some new management with people skills, and leadership within the industry.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO

    Pros

    Promote Based Upon Performance
    Only Employ Top Tier Employees
    Extremely Tight Team
    Very Aggressive
    Every Day is Different
    Management is not Industry-Focused but Growth-Focused
    Everyone is Given More Responsibility than is Justified Based Upon Experience Base

    Cons

    Not a Place for Non-Entrepreneurs
    Change Occurs at a Dramitic Pace (for those that are not Entreprenurial-Minded, this leads to Stress)
    High Profile Company with High Expectations of Team Members--you had better bring your "A Game" every day or you will not fir in with the culture
    People Love it Here or Hate it, nothing in between
    Fit Matters a Lot

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the employees are a good fit or don't hire them. Ensure that the benefits package is keeping up with company growth.

    Deceptive, cut throat work environment.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    An impressive roster of licensing partnerships.

    Cons

    Sales employees must perform against unattainable goals in a fear based culture. Sales leader comes from outside industry. Clients complain about customer service, employee turn over and leadership that is out of touch with marketplace. Sales director was seen as a liability on meetings showing little regard for client time and challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to build a climate of trust and respect. Need to set more realistic sales goals and reset commission structure according to market specific challenges. Need to hire senior management that values employees and offers direct, honest and unbiased feedback. Creating a less threatening culture will bring out better performances and inspire talent/employees to be more loyal.

    Good place to get experience but save your pennies

    Pros

    Young company, generally nice group of people. You get to work with high profile media buyers, very good medical package

    Cons

    Low compensation, no commission, team goals almost unattainable. CSRs are deemed as disposable. You're often forced to pass up deals to managers without warrant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either create compensation package to encourage hard work or up base pay. Either pay CSRs like saleswomen or call it a customer service role.
