    I worked at iCrossing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people. Most of which know what they're doing and work towards bettering themselves. Great work/life balance. I never felt overworked. Good benefits.

    Cons

    A little too much "fat" towards the top of the chain, which can be typical for large organizations, but the new president is working on trimming it.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the good talent and keeping them.

    I have been working at iCrossing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Tremendous opportunities for people that are ambitious - Strong career growth with the ability to get promoted quickly - Upholds an integrated approach that breaks down traditional marketing silos - Numerous opportunities to get training and advance your skills - Executive leadership that listens and is passionate about the business

    Cons

    - Currently in the midst of a transition from search-centric to full-service centric agency - Business development lacks a strategic focus that works to shape office client portfolios - Select employees could be more actively encouraged to expand their cross-channel knowledge base - Until recently, creative wasn't getting the respect it deserves - Recent changes have improved office culture and it will hopefully continue to improve

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on...listening to employees, making the tough decisions that better the organization, and rolling up your sleeves to serve the most important constituents (the clients).

    Intelligent, passionate and reasonable people. You know that you encompass all three of these things if you work here.

    Cons

    There's not always a clear direction People who are a burden on the team (usually contractors or bought up teams) are met with no consequences and/or time to improve

    I have been working at iCrossing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Um, nothing to do with the agency directly. More with its location, that is, it being located in the Hearst Tower.

    Cons

    Delusional that they think they are competitors to the agencies that create great work such as RGA, 360i, Razorfish, etc. Management is ineffective, nasty, bad attitudes and only out for themselves. No interest in developing great talent. Culture is like no other. People think they are better than their co-workers and are not friendly. There really is no culture. High turnover. Can't find good talent. They hire you based on whether they get a "good vibe" in the interview and nothing to do with your qualifications. Might gain incremental work but don't win new work. Have no idea what some of these departments actually do and try to hype themselves up. Basically don't work here. Whether you are fresh out of college or a veteran. Could be a great agency if they hired talent, re-evaluate who are the so-called leaders, and focus on producing great work vs. office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves.

    Pros

    It is a very relaxed environment company has good direction from the top down on the fringe of digital marketing

    Cons

    The onboarding process is unstructured, new hires are either thrown right into the mix or left afloat for a while

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a better structure of onboarding new hires and implement it right away to make feel people more welcome from day 1

    Pros

    Excellent work culture and the supervisors are extremely helpful. In a short span of time was exposed to a whole set of new tools to work with. Overall the experience was super awesome!

    Cons

    The only cons I can think of is the compensation for the internship is slightly on the lower side.
