I recently received an offer from iProspect (part of Dentsu) I’ve heard ups and downs about this company. I currently work for a great company and not sure if I should leave. The new opportunity pays a lot more than I currently make. Does anyone have any advice about this company and whether I should take the job or not?

    Great Place to Work and Learn

    Pros

    Great fairly laid back work environment Manager is very attentive to feedback, meets regularly with me to check-in Teams work very well together and communication is seamless across the entire department Leadership is fairly decentralized (never have felt intimidated or afraid to talk with upper management, feels like everyone is equally important). Growth potential definitely exists, but you have to really show that you are able and willing.

    Cons

    Benefits could be slightly better, but that's a really minor con

    Easy, fun, and good worklife balance

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Work is easy and rarely requires off hour works, but are flexible to work with you to make sure you aren't overworked.

    Cons

    Went through a lot of layoffs and upper management doesn't always learn from past lessons

    Don't recommend it

    Pros

    happy hours, beer fridge, the people that are actually working (20% of the company)

    Cons

    Upper management is a bunch of fratty drinkers with access to the company card that they take advantage of for personal use. Middle management is completely lost and they struggle with leading, managing, or setting an example. The company promotes based on the time you've been with the company, rather than your contributions to the company or team, or if you are the best in the team. There are a lot of unnecessary people that should be gone but because they do the bare minimum, they can stay.

    Scam company hiding in expensive office building

    Jul 30, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Free booze & snacks Tele-work capable during the COVID-19 pandemic Decent pay as long as you don’t work on commission You can get hired with no experience or education in the field Impossible to get fired, another Agora company will hire you immediately if you do Tons of happy hours & extravagant holiday parties even when company-wide layoffs are occurring They really go the extra mile to solicit positive reviews from current employees Always room for growth/taking on extra responsibilities with the high turnover rate Beautiful historic office buildings that aren’t handicap accessible

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch with day-to-day operations and does not know or care about employees or quality of work Little diversity/frat house culture that’s unwelcoming to BIPOC & women All tech is created in-house so it’s not relevant to any other workplace Shady marketing campaigns that target seniors & spread misinformation Companies are constantly being rebranded or merged because of all the lawsuits Last paycheck was a full week late

    To the reviewer, as disappointing as this review is to read, we appreciate you taking the time to post. Whether or not it is entirely fair or accurate, your perception of the organization is useful and is being shared with our leadership.

    14 West was a great place to work at before all the structural changes that occurred in February.

    Digital Content Manager

    It's no secret that our Technology division has undergone a great deal of change and restructuring over the last several years. Some of this change just comes with the territory as service providers - as our clients' businesses and needs evolve, we must respond. Instead of fearing change or rejecting it, we must embrace it. Sometimes that means that an established solution needs to be revisited or completely abandoned in the blink of an eye. That is never our goal, nor is it ideal, but that is our reality. And our people have to be willing and eager to be a part of the subsequent change.

    WesTech leadership is taking a hard look at themselves and the business right now. Leadership development and management is and will continue to be an enormous focus for the tech division in 2020 - secondary only to doing everything they can to continue to drive the business forward.
