    I worked at Affinity Solutions full-time

    Pros

    The real value is in the closed loop sales lift attribution

    Cons

    They run too thin. The data cloud business is a nice want, but their true backbone/DNA is Cardlinked business.

    Advice to Management

    Go all in or step all the way out.

    I worked at Affinity Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Very understanding execs, family friendly, flexible with your life as long as you don abuse it. The teams i worked with were knowledgeable and understood we all had the same goal.

    Cons

    You will find some of the same cons here that you find in any business, these are just the collateral of big business.

    Advice to Management

    None, really keep up the recent changes and the hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Christina Panay and Torq Perry are very knowledgeable executives. I love working with them because they are not just good at what they do but they also really care about the people and the organization. I've never seen this level of dedication during career. I'm honoured to be working with them.

    Different lines of business do not communicate with each other.

    Continue to keep doing what your doing such as providing full transparency at the town hall meetings.

    "Assembly Line"

    I have been working at Affinity Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    So many good people are still holding up.

    Cons

    Employees are seen as assembly line workers. If one is not in a manager's good graces, that individual will be targeted.

    Advice to Management

    Be humble. Get to know your employees strengths, weaknesses, goals and abilities in order to utilize each properly and more productive way. Stop treating people like pawns.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Lots of changes are being made in technology and team leads are very knowledgable

    Cons

    Since some part of the team is based in San Jose and some part in NY, it gets a little challenging sometimes.

    Pros

    The people are the best !!! Always happy and willing to help. You will make some great friends.

    Cons

    The technology is from 2000 and has not changed. They have the best data but have no idea how to use it. With all the technology issues they will never survive and will have to convince/lie to clients and investors that things will get better soon. One of the worst companies to work for that has no respect for its employees and work them to the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chasing the $$$ and coddling your clients, they will respect you more if you have an opinion. Once you do this than its possible that you really create a product roadmap as oppose to shifting every 3 months based on the client or the board.

    Pros

    Great ideas... Not new ideas, but solid ideas. If they could put a real effort behind them, they'd be in good shape.

    Cons

    Way too much time and energy spent in correcting avoidable errors. Superficial leadership that ignores the true problems of infrastructure, or lack thereof. Days wasted on meetings to hear an executive try to prove that he's the smartest guy in the room, and others on meetings to hear another executive complain about how much she has to travel.

    Sexual harassment? Sweep it under the rug and get rid of anyone who may complain. That's the game.

    Advice to Management

    Read above. Get rid of the archaic infrastructure that causes most of your problems. Stick with making things work for your existing clients before building your client base with empty promises.
