    I worked at Accelerate Media

    Pros

    Small staff doing big work! Very talented people and a workplace that allows for everyone to have input to bring a very polished product for clients. Everyday was something new and it allows for employees to grow in an ever-changing demand driven field.

    Cons

    I really enjoyed working here.

    Advice to Management

    Jason clearly cares about his employees and clients. It was a pleasure to work here.

    I worked at Accelerate Media

    Pros

    Easily the best job in my 20-plus-year career. The staff is incredibly talented, truly some of the best and brightest I've seen. The CEO is a wonderful leader: smart, intuitive, charismatic, trustworthy, knowledgable, kind and more. He truly cares about his clients and getting results for them, and he truly cares for his staff and their quality of life. The camaraderie and work environment are excellent. Everyone talks about the importance of "culture" but Accelerate Media lives it--without giving it a lot of unnecessary (and intended for the public) lip service. I flourished and grew (and gained confidence) more in my 2 years there than anywhere else. I left to pursue a "can't pass it up" opportunity, but I miss it every day.

    Cons

    Initially the small size made me think, "Woah, how can they accomplish all this with so few people?" but that was my past experience talking. They don't take on work at which they can't succeed--or excel.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Accelerate Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Team is fresh and creative. Does good work.

    Cons

    The owner/manager tends toward micromanaging, which stifles creativity. For the size of the company, there is a lot of personal drama and oversized egos. Poor communication.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to, and learn how to accept, criticism from the creative team. Stop promising things to clients without consulting the people who must execute it for you; it would save you, the client, and the team a lot of stress!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Accelerate Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot of room to be creative with campaigns, engagement with client's is what you make of it but with a wide variety of clients it is nice to be able to work with a variety of industries. There is a lot of growth in the company's future.

    Cons

    The development process is very segmented and departmentalized for the size of the company. Pieces get missed when the company fails to have a kickoff meeting where everyone is involved.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your specialist to be specialist and rely on them to fill in the management on best ideas for clients, using their previous experiences.
