    Pros

    The people were awesome. The office location was great (Chelsea). If you were in the inner-circle, you were promoted. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Compensation is probably the lowest in the industry. No real training. At one point there were more VPs then regular staff (ie, a bunch of inflated egos).

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your employees fairly and offer some training or courses to take.

    Pros

    Laid back environment and fun people to work with
    Lacked solid management and direction

    Cons

    Company was not financially stable and laid off several people.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making people helping and mentoring them instead of just throwing them into the deep end to figure things out on their own.

    I worked at Alloy Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people made this an amazing and inspiring place to work! There are smart, creative and fun coworkers who will make your Monday-Friday seem a lot more enjoyable but also everyone knows when it is time to focus and get the job done. Talent overflows!

    Cons

    There is a tendency to work folks to the bone and if someone "gets the job done" then some major flaws may be overlooked (in other words, they tend to believe the ends justify the means)

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are amazing - from mailroom to C-suite - so treat them as well as they treat the company. Results shouldn't be obtained "at all costs" but keep on doing a great job hiring talent and great candidates!

    I worked at Alloy Media full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for travel & experience. Lots of responsibility at a young age, I've carried this with me throughout my career. I also loved the office culture; highly developed here.

    Cons

    Extremely hard to get promoted and the pay is a little low.

    Advice to Management

    Promote folks from within and don't be afraid to pay them a bit more; you'll keep the good ones and attract more talent. Overturn was a bit of an issue here.

    I worked at Alloy Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Great people, everyone is friendly
    -Middle management is just a pleasure to work with
    -Fun parties and company events
    -Work environment is lax

    Cons

    Biggest problem at Alloy are the Executives ( upper management )

    -Executives are cocky and full of ego
    -Executives are insanely hard to work with
    -Executives dont care about people under them

    Advice to Management

    The CEO needs to really understand the damage his Executives buddies are doing. I have seen nearly half of the Alloy Staff leave because of the Executives in my 2 year including myself.

    I have been working at Alloy Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Casual dress code and summer fridays. Everybody is friendly and willing to keep communication open.

    Cons

    feels like there is lack of direction. There isn't a well define core value. They only jump on the next hot thing, seemingly without a strategy. It's stressful adjusting to many acquisitions within such a short time. The workflow changes. If you are not familiar with everyone's working style is hard to keep up.

    Advice to Management

    It's important to have a solid direction. We need a goal to strive for!

    I worked at Alloy Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of young people - good for recent grads to make friends. They give you space to move to different departments and you can find opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Work itself is a little depressing - monotonous / boring. Peers aren't that enthusiastic about their jobs because of this...which kind of snowballs. Professional workspace, but cube-culture.

    Advice to Management

    Have more incentives for employees, show more appreciation for their work.
