    I have been working at Allen & Gerritsen

    Pros

    Brilliant people who are focused and genuine Employees are encouraged to share their thoughts, feelings, ideas and often blessed to run with them They truly care about their people A hell of a lot of fun

    Cons

    Nowhere is perfect but I'm struggling to come up with something? Maybe bandwidth issues on occasion but ad world is hard to predict needs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and don't be afraid to push things even further

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Allen & Gerritsen full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      ok clients opportunity for growth they have interactive events on Fridays that engage employees

      Cons

      NO DIVERSITY in this agency, which is hard to believe. In the advertising field, you create ads to reach a wide set of people, but when you only have one type of people working on the content, or people with the same set of experiences, the ads tend to be one sided. In my tenure there the only diversity present were the people cleaning up at night time.

      Pros

      The people are the best. Earnest, nice, funny, smart, fun...what more can i say? the people make the culture and everyone is really great.

      Cons

      it's an agency so things can get hectic. information can pass over a few people, but it's never out of ill-will. but that could be said anywhere.

      Advice to Management

      keep summer fridays, keep flexibility and trust, keep up with the employee focused events/outings.

      I worked at Allen & Gerritsen full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      It's a small/mid-size agency poised for growth and there's opportunity to push beyond your immediate title/role

      Cons

      Not always receptive to 'new' approaches and more political than you might expect.

      Advice to Management

      Be less concerned with what time people walk in the door and more aware of what time they leave and how they contribute between and beyond the two. Creating loyalty among staff and keeping strong talent in house requires mutual respect.
