    I have been working at Anthem Ventures full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to gain experiences in many things that I would not have been able to work on if I were in other companies. The insight I gained was monumental in shaping my career development. I feel challenged on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Parking isn't great, but the office space is incredible. i love where i work, no complaints.

    Pros

    I would only come here if you had nothing else available.

    Cons

    Get out while you still have your sanity.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't want advice from its workers. This is a futile effort.

    I worked at Anthem Ventures full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Try to position themselves as growing, hip company doing cutting edge work. They do give free sparkling water.

    Cons

    Owner is living in a dream world- talks a good game but never delivers. Changes strategies every few months. Those responsible for developing and implementing new products are never held responsible for not delivering- layoffs have hit every department multiple times in the last two years but the same failed managers are in place. Owner only wants to talk to those who agree with him and his vision of the moment. If you are in good with him, life is ok for the moment.. But he will turn on you as soon as you challenge his view of the world.

    Advice to Management

    When you are constantly burning through staff because they "don't get it", maybe there is nothing to actually get. It's you and your buddies, not them.

    Pros

    Good CEO and very good company policies

    Cons

    It is tough to get started and really excel as quickly as the opportunity allows just because I was not as driven as I probably should have been, but it is still very doable and becomes really second nature quickly.

    Sometimes the parking can be a pain

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers? Check. Work flexibility? Uh huh. Exposure to an insane scope of projects and clients? Yeah. I've received a ton of support from my superiors when it comes to career development and personal growth opportunities, and I'm grateful for that. This is not just a "add decent stuff to your portfolio" company. This is a "make your career" company. "Work hard, play hard" company culture is a bonus.

    Cons

    Some of Anthem's ventures have a startup mentality - I like this aspect and how it makes every day different, but I can see how people who are accustomed to the 9-5 work grind could be thrown by this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. We're going places.

    Pros

    As it stands, people are good to work with, collaboration is welcome, follow up is not a priority.

    Cons

    No culture, hard to get things accomplished. High Employee churn. Feels like there are too many projects going at one time and not enough people to get things done. Company doesn't listen to customers, they come up with ideas and won't research validity or need with customers.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good, Listen. Revenue should come from collaborating with clients, not beating up sales force

    Pros

    Amazing company culture. Work hard/play hard mentality is a perfect balance. People are extremely hard-working, but enjoy the work, and always with a smile on their faces. Super smart colleagues that are always challenging themselves and continually learning. Company appreciates hard work by promoting from within.

    Cons

    There are not many downsides to working at Anthem Media Group, The base hours are a bit longer than most companies but they make up for this in other ways.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the 'play hard' part of the 'work hard/play hard' mentality so that employees continue to enjoy coming to work every day

    Pros

    Anthem Media has great talent development programs, super benefits, a wonderful culture and exciting opportunities. You have to be willing to work long and hard to achieve promotional opportunities, but they are there and worth the effort.

    Cons

    You have to be in the mind-set that you will work hard to build your skills and better yourself, for your benefit and for the companies benefit.
