What is a typical working day like 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.

How is the office food at Fingerpaint Marketing?

Pros

Coming to Fingerpaint has been a truly wonderful career move for me. The people make coming to the office each day easy. It's so awesome watching our teams come together for one end goal and provide our clients with some of the best work in the industry. I've learned so much in my few years since starting with this company because of the leaders who take time to explain the little things. I'm grateful to my team for their constant support and daily laughs. Added bonus: the amazing benefits! 100% coverage of medical premiums, assistance paying off college loans (my personal favorite), spot bonuses and office dogs.

Cons

Overall, Fingerpaint is a great place to work. Every company has their "learning curves" and Fingerpaint is always willing to learn more about different ways to improve. The Monday morning breakfasts or paid team lunches are a great but it doesn't always boil down to a free meal. Instead, I think we could focus on improving on the work/life balance - maybe it's more work from opportunities, more paid holidays, or being able to hire an extra team member here and there to take on the extra work load. Our competitors are following the trend of more time off and working from home, so why can't we?
