    I worked at Abstrakt Marketing Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The environment is awesome. You will find no complaints there with the atmosphere or the people. Not always for everybody but is very lively and energetic. The PSR role was a great learning experience. Obviously nobody wants to the dialing for the rest of their life but it's a great skill to acquire and say you did. I learned about new industries and spoke to managers and CEO's across the country. My professionalism...

    Cons

    The role is hard work and like any sales jobs frustrating when you make 140 dials and get 0 appointments set in a day but it's part of the job I took. Metric driven and can at times be a little micro managed IF you bring it upon yourself. If you don't like competitive environments, metrics, cold calling or rejection the role will not be for you.

    Advice to Management

    Finding other times outside of lunch for some of the required meetings.

    I worked at Abstrakt Marketing Group full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Abstrakt was an amazing place to start out my career. The culture and energy they bring to work every day is undeniable. The friends I made while at Abstrakt are life long and I still keep in touch with them. I learned the basic sales techniques and went to multiple trainings that were very beneficial to me. You have direct contact to the CEO if you want it/need it which is very nice and helpful. The leadership team at...

    Cons

    I only had two cons while working for Abstrakt. Please trust & listen to your employees. I think the employees had a lot of good solutions so to please listen to them and at least try to put their concerns into actions. The employees who have long tenure with the company care about the company and know it best. If something does not work, please do not change it right away. Lay out the reasons it is not working, come...

    I worked at Abstrakt Marketing Group full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Employee first mentality to put you in the best possible place for advancement in your career. Training can become a little redundant at times, but overall it was very beneficial. Great work environment, always takes feedback and grows from it, also a catalyst in the Landing revival project.

    Cons

    You can tell who's bought in and not and who'll last and who won't and those people who aren't usually have the most to say afterwards. But, that's with any company. This company isn't for everyone but will give you the resources to obtain a very valuable skillset with whatever department you work in to significantly advance in your career within the company or outside of.

    I worked at Abstrakt Marketing Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Location, Young crowd, Culture, Creative building space, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Inexperienced leadership, disorganized management, not enough employees, no training, unfocused strategies, low salary range, no support, rigid bank-like hours (forget about leaving any earlier than 5pm on the dot), no flexible work time, bland product delivery, not client friendly.

    Advice to Management

    To sum it up in two words: focus & listen. Focus your efforts and stop trying to force a modern style culture and then still try to micromanage employees like it’s the corporate Stone Age. Having beers at company meetings doesn’t mean anything if you don’t have the resources to support this so-called growth you’re aiming for. Growing revenue is important,yes but it’s also important to ensure your processes, training...

    I worked at Abstrakt Marketing Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Culture, friendships, people who somewhat care.

    Cons

    I cannot stress enough that this place is NOT the place to work. Work/life balance is not an option here. Someone died in your family? Nope, you have to make up those three days you missed staying 7 AM-9PM the entire next week. Not to mention you can’t have a break while you’re there. Want to enjoy your lunch? Can’t, there’s either required training or meetings. Constant 7:30 AM - 5:30 PM grind. Hope you woke up next...

    Pros

    Culture is awesome, team outings, drink cart and food trucks on Fridays. Definitely recommend if you're looking to learn and make some things happen right off the bat

    Cons

    The Landing has room to improve but its definitely on the move and will be much different within the next year

    Advice to Management

    The improvements I've seen in the past year have been very impactful and I think the ones discussed at the company meeting will continue to positively help our company and its processes

    Pros

    You will build great friendships and with the great people on your team.

    Cons

    • Make sure you negotiate your salary for the amount you really want. The recruiter will tell you that they do raises every 6 months, it's not true. • Disappointingly wasteful. A company size of nearly 300 employees that made $19.5 million in annual revenue last year told me that they don't recycle anything besides paper "due to the costs." They throw away everything out of convenience and it shows that they only...

    Advice to Management

    • Promote people the people working who actually know what they are doing. • Measure people based on skillset and how much value they provide the company instead of only how many years they've been an employee. • Actually measure employees performance with things like fixing business pain points or processes they have advanced. Not how many hours they log or how fast they can do a task.

    Pros

    This is a high-energy office environment where people interactively compete with each other and celebrate their successes together. The training is second to none and advancement opportunities happen frequently. You can have a job anywhere, but at Abstrakt you will have a career.

    Cons

    None that I see unless you consider hard work to be a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep sharing your innovative thinking - it clearly works here and energizes the team. The expanded office space is first-class, like everything that is done here. Thanks for believing in us!!

    I honestly have never been happier in a workplace. From upper management on down, everyone is supportive. The people, the culture, and the opportunity for growth make this the best place to work.

    Cons

    IDOT and MODOT close bridges and make the commute difficult.

    I have been working at Abstrakt Marketing Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I really love that I am always given a challenge and pushed to reach my full potential. Leadership mentors you and encourages you to be transparent with what your long term goals are - they want to make sure you're job is aligned with your personal ambitions. Abstrakt cares about employees' well-being and I feel this everyday. Very happy to be here.

    Cons

    Here's how you know you've made it at Abstrakt. The reward for doing a good job is getting a bigger, tougher problem next time. Meaning, you are always solving the easiest problem you will ever solve again. This takes a lot of resilience and active managing of self-expectations to remember that you are not actually getting worse, the problems are just getting harder. So my advice is to remember that. And then take a...
