    I worked at Anderson Direct Marketing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the employees are really nice people.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is poor and management does not care. Salaried employees are frequently expected to work nights and weekends to meet poorly planned deadlines. Management is more about playing political games than providing results. Good people are fired fairly often without notice but many leave on their own.

    Pros

    Company Culture within the company is good, I get along with everyone there

    Cons

    After working there for so many years, I've seen the way we handle clients and it's not proper. There needs to be more attention in detail, which they lack.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to have open discussion, understand criticism. The CEO is nice, but never there, half of management calls in sick or leaves early. What example are you setting?

    I have been working at Anderson Direct Marketing full-time

    Pros

    The real unfortunate thing about Anderson is there are some very intelligent people who work here, but management doesn't care to tap into their strengths so...those smart individuals eventually move on which is why they're always hiring.

    Cons

    No real opportunity for job growth
    Lack of work/life balance
    Most of the management is out of touch
    Morale is extremely low among everyone
    No innovation

    Advice to Management

    It seems like the more competent you are, the more they pile on you and allow the inefficient ones to get paid the same or more to do much less. There isn't much positive reinforcement however there is a lot of time spent making sure every error is addressed. All the processes are behind the times and all they do is keep creating new procedures for people to follow that contribute to the immense amount of overtime hours I've endured. They call all their procedures "quality control" but there is no limit to all the time wasting activities that need to be completed in order to get a simple mail job out the door. The morale is consistently low yet no one in management seems to care enough to take action because they themselves aren't excited to come here each day either. There seems to be such simple solutions to boost the overall discouraged tone, but with the current decision makers things will remain the same.
