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

    Pros

    I have yet to work with more intelligent people than the teams at Acronym. The office is a very casual open minded environment where you are free to speak your opinions and play devil's advocate. I can honestly say management cared more about the quality of work they provided clients than any other agency I am familiar with. This is rare since most agencies will sacrifice integrity for a quick buck. I think this cultural work ethic shows with the many awards they have won through the years. Meetings are held weekly to make sure teams are up to date on industry trends/changes. You will have the ability to learn firsthand any avenue of digital you are interested in, which is invaluable in your future career growth. The office view is breathtaking. Summer Fridays you get out at 2pm. Free snacks in the kitchen. Free lunch every other week.

    Cons

    Pay is unrealistically low in NYC, even for entry level (35k). Office gossip & favoritism is present but the same can be said for all agencies. Work load can be extreme as new clients are consistently being onboarded. Merit increases/promotions take longer than structurally promised. The office space is incredibly bland, other than the amazing view!

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the development of individuals and give rewards based on talent and not an arbitrary amount of time worked at the company. Work to integrate Analytics, SEO, and PPC teams more, as they all play a role in one another. Pay employees competitively, with better holiday benefits, and upgrade office technology. Otherwise competing agencies will keep turnover high. Branch out to other cities. Keep avoiding the corporate vibe!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Acronym Media (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had a friendly chat with two managers at Acronym. They were asking straightforward questions about my professional experience and skills relevant to the position: experience in paid search, analytics tools, and excel (particularly pivot tables).
    By the way they have an amazing view over lower Manhattan from the conference room.
