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

    Pros

    The culture at Optiem was great and if you are a self-learner you'll do well. If you are someone who is more task oriented and needs more framework to deliver what is needed, you might struggle at first.

    My manager at optiem was both the best and worst manager I've ever had. He was great in providing autonomy, let me try new things, pulled me into projects and allowed me to take ownership of my work.

    Where he struggled was in providing air-cover. If something went wrong that was out of my control. I'd get thrown under the bus in front of clients and then apologized for it back at the office. Clients came first, then company reputation, then you.

    Great location downtown, easy'ish commute and parking.

    The office environment is hip and swanky like you would expect from a highly regarded agency.

    Cons

    Like most agencies, they ran lean and pretty flat. So advancement opportunities were slim. Long hours weren't the norm, but you would hit busy spots or have to pick up slack if someone left suddenly.
