    I have been working at Women’s Marketing, Inc. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Couldn't work with a better group of smart, talented and passionate employees. The company really takes care of its people offering great benefits, nice perks, and encourages the employees to suggest ways to improve process and culture. The management team is highly engaged with both the business and the employees.

    Cons

    Hard pressed to say anything negative. It's a growth company so the goals are aggressive so you have to be willing to work hard and smart. That doesn't mean a ton of hours, just a focus on doing all you can to make it happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love your focus on the business strategy and the people who contribute to it. It feels good to work for a company that appreciates your work and contributions.

    Pros

    With a small company, there are a lot of opportunities to learn above your pay grade. This agency is technically a sales organization, so a lot of the employees are seasoned professionals who have a sales mindset.

    Cons

    99% of the company is women, so be ready for small talk and gossip. Because of the company size, there is little room for promotions or advancement due to budgetary restraints. Also very negative relationships between departments due to lack of respect for others' roles.

    The new performance review standards are also completely based on subjectivity. They will rate you on ability to "be extraordinary, deliver excellence, demand passion, embrace quirks, and have fun." Based on your manager, this could be problematic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of the upper-level people leave early, whereas the entry levels are staying until past 7PM. Give credit where it's due and be realistic with expectations.

    I worked at Women’s Marketing, Inc. full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked with a fun and inspiring creative team to produce beautifully designed and well thought out promotional pieces. the company seemed to be on the verge of growing and venturing into new territory.

    Cons

    No room for personal growth, and team was disbanded after out Creative Director left the company. WMI had a lot of potential but couldn't realize it, and unfortunately all of us had to move on.

    I have been working at Women’s Marketing, Inc. full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Worked with some talented people until they left or were fired or laid off

    Cons

    upper-level management is constantly changing direction and vision of company leading to many an identity crisis
    they never promoted from within
    organization of employees is very top heavy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being such a reactionary and timid company. Value the employees you have and work with them to get the best you can out of them. Constantly changing the vision of the company (have another logo change why don't you?) leads customers to correctly assume the WMI is unstable and unreliable.
