How are promotions handled at Fingerpaint Marketing?

Pros

If you enjoy the "family" like environment, the company does a good job of trying to create that environment. Lots of little perks to keep people in the office over the week, such as bagels for breakfast and a kitchen full of food so you don't have to run out to get lunch. Everyone gets a Mac so computer issues seem to be minimal. Most all of the FPM Team gets along which makes for a lot of laughter. It's a good place to go for about a year to gain experience through overworking you, then leave for more competitive salary and upward mobility. This office is very relaxed and not at all corporate, if that is what you're looking for this would be a good environment.

Cons

A real lack of work life balance, with working from home is frowned upon. People without kids are expected to stay late and cover work for employees with kids on nights and weekends. This created some tensions on teams. Weeks can get very long and there was no path for promotion. You have to ask for a review in order to get increases in compensation but then for some teams it was handed out without a review. A plan was in the works for compensations and promotions but that was a promise for over a year. Salary is not competitive enough for the Philadelphia area. A few toxic coworkers made the long nights and days feel longer and made meetings uncomfortable with passive aggressive behavior. A few team members are held with high regard and their own set of expectations, making it unfair and causing friction. When complaints were raised not much action was taken. Staff meetings were very uncomfortable and include personal pictures of staff (taken without consent), if you're OK with that no issues! If that's not the kind of attention you want, this may not be a place for you. No HR reps in all offices creating an imbalance of power and no checks to inappropriate behavior or jokes.

Advice to Management

Create a path for growth! No titles is fine but it can become limiting for employees. Remember that all employees should be treated the same and all teams the same. Watching favoritism is very demotivating and ugly. Help empower employees to have a better work life balance, it makes a huge difference in morale and dedication. Listen to team members when they have valid complaints. Add more Holiday time off, be more flexible with WFH to help accommodate team members.

What is the feeling of job security at Fingerpaint Marketing?

Pros

The CEO is inspiring. 401k match. Unlimited PTO. Hard working employees.

Cons

Teams are very cliquey. No real feedback can be given and accepted. Those with tenure are favored and protected. Lay offs.

Advice to Management

I was inspired to write this review after seeing the last review posted. I believe that being billable first is Fingerpaint’s main priority. The term “people first” is used when most convenient for marketing purposes. There are toxic people at the top that are creating a terrible culture. Please stop the culture of glorifying working after 5 and/or on the weekend. Especially from leadership. While this is sometimes necessary, it should not be a badge of honor.

Lay offs.
