    I have been working at Acceleration Partners full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Seriously, AP is the absolute best place to work. I have never worked at another company who genuinely cares for the well-beings of their employees, both professionally and personally, as people beyond the employee. The work we do, while often demanding and challenging, is exciting and inspiring and pushes you to to continue learning and growing. From the top down, AP's employees are all superstars - every here is genuine...

    Cons

    These cons are not true cons per se, but rather an aspect of the company that potential applicants should know about. The culture at AP is outstanding, the work we do is challenging and my colleagues are the best; HOWEVER it is a fast-paced environment, and both expectations and standards are high. To be successful here you have to be highly self-motivated, organized, as well as able to proactively juggle a lot of priorities...

    I have been working at Acceleration Partners full-time

    Pros

    I can't express how thankful I am to be able to work at company like AP. Being someone who came from an agency where inputs/hours worked were valued over results, and no value or support was given to employees, AP is a dream. The biggest pros are the culture, commitment to core values, and trust that AP gives its employees. Our clients are top notch and the work we do is changing the industry, as well as how people view...

    Cons

    Not a con for me, but like many reviews have mentioned this is a growing agency and the work is fast paced. If you are a person who cracks easily under pressure and can't prioritize/balance work load you will have a hard time succeeding here. Folks who are looking for an easy WFH job with unlimited vacation time should not apply. We hold each other to high standards and are radically candid in our feedback, if you can't...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hold our hiring to high standards. Make sure we are doing everything possible to ensure new hires can handle the fast paced environment here at AP and that they are a true core value fit. Letting those who are not a fit slip through the cracks will be damaging to the success of other teams.

    Pros

    - WFH is convenient - Talented, intelligent coworkers are easy to come by - Positive and progressive company culture - Exposure to large clients and brand names - Great learning opportunities and team-building opportunities, as well as cross-team collaboration on ad hoc projects - Leadership for the most part, really does value work-life integration and they make a point of rewarding employees for taking time off...

    Cons

    - As other reviews mentioned, there's a big problem with some micromanaging within the company. It's very degrading to have to send your director your email drafts prior to sending to the client, then have every little word picked over by someone that thinks their way is the only way. Especially at a Sr. Manager level. I've never experienced this in other companies. - While I'm aware that certain clients are paying a...

    Pros

    Amazing Culture with top notch leadership team. Working from home Mostly great co-workers Top rated training

    Cons

    AP's culture is amazing but with the rapid growth some of it seems to be getting diluted and is not trickling down. People left recently due to issues with managers or their teams. Like another reviewer mentioned, a lot of managers are completely micro-managing their teams with every piece of communication requiring a million edits. In a fast paced agency environment that can have a big impact on moral and productivity....

    Advice to Management

    AP spends a lot of time and money on training and letting good people go is not in the best interest of the company.

    I have been working at Acceleration Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The entire company strives to stand behind its core values and makes sure everyone feels included and successful. It's refreshing to work somewhere where not only work/life balance is accepted, but work/life integration is actually encouraged. I feel like AP treats their employees as talent, rather than just another number.

    Cons

    Adjusting to a completely remote position can have its challenges, but I feel like AP tries to prepare you for that as best as possible.

    Pros

    -AP has a culture like no other! We are all remote, yet feel completely connected. -Leadership truly cares about their employees, collecting feedback regularly but more importantly, implementing change as a result of the feedback. -It is a rapidly growing global company, leading the performance marketing industry with great brands you are proud to work with. -No politics - just great people working towards the...

    Cons

    -The growth is fast - it requires constant adaptation to change. -We are leading the industry in uncharted territories which creates a lot of unknown and ambiguity. May not be the right fit if you require clear direction with clear outcomes.

    This is more of a word of advice but sticking to a schedule and having a designated workspace has helped me manage an effective work/life integration

    Pros

    AP truly cares for their employees professional and personal development. I trust and admire our leadership team and am proud and fortunate to work for this organization. Strong community of team players who value and respect one another. The comradery is un-matched to any other placed I have worked before here.

    Cons

    If you are not a detailed-oriented, self motivating person, AP is not a fit for you. Also, salary discussions need to be reviewed more.
