    A wonderful place to work

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

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

    ConsThere'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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    iCrossing is a great place to learn and grow

    Vice President Strategy (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    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 Senior ManagementContinue 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).

    Overall great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

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

    ConsA 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 Senior ManagementFocus on the good talent and keeping them.

    The glory days have passed iC by

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsStrong work-life balance. Really talented creative team.

    ConsHuge talent exit over last two years. Really poor track record of delivering on promises of bonuses

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't turn your back on Powley

    Pretty Good for Mid-Tier Digital Agency

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company to work for if you are a self-starter. The hierarchy isn't locked down so people lower in it can get noticed and advance. They also support you moving to different positions if you like and if it makes sense to the company. People are really nice, especially in the Chicago/Dallas and SF offices. No drama or politics. The hours aren't crazy like some other agencies. Just depends on the account you are on. iCrossing is getting more and more well known so they are getting bigger accounts as well

    ConsStill a little loose on how iCrossing does things. The iCrossing brand is still weak compared to other agencies, but it's getting better. There is disconnect between departments sometimes. Account Management teams are weak and are just glorified project managers. Need to do better at helping clients plan for and build their business vs. just executing projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNew CEO should help push things forward. Keep pushing to figure out what iCrossing does best and how that's different from the rest.

    Great work environment

    Technical (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsI came from a corporate environment where there was alot of politics, dead weight people adding more stress to your daily work life.

    The people here are great, smart, and capable. The technologies being used here are Industry strength technologies. It's a medium sized company, so there is no BS political mess to deal with to get something done.

    ConsI've seen people being let go rather quickly after making a mistake. In a way, it's a good thing that the company doesn't tolerate dead weights, but it keeps you on your toes to avoid the same fate.

    There is an offshoring model here, so you'd have to work at nights to discuss with the offshore team.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great place to work/grow if you happen to work with the right people

    Front End Engineer (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    Pros- You get to work on projects for big brands, so it's definitely good for your resume.
    - You get to work mostly with talented individuals.
    - You can work out a fairly flexible schedule.

    Cons- Depending on what department you are a part of, office politics can be tough to deal with.
    - Hierarchy seems to be too deep for what the company does. At times you can find yourself doing most of the work for a client, and being managed by 4-5 people who actually don't know a lot about your specific project.

    A little misdirected at the moment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompetitive pay, good vacation and benefits. Decent culture on the west coast.

    ConsNarrow growth opportunities, bonus payout tied to metrics you most likely don't have a personal impact on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a clear direction, monetize and stick to it. Continue to work on silo'd departments to allow more collaboration.
