    I have been working at Arrowhead Advertising

    Pros

    I've read all the comments below before joining the team, I'm glad I went with my gut and made the move to Arrowhead Advertising. The team is awesome to work with, and I really enjoy working with an experienced and talented senior management. The team rallies off each person's strengths to deliver excellent work to clients. Coming from a family with 20+ years in agency experience. I understand the moves management...

    I worked at Arrowhead Advertising full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Great employees, unfortunately we were all treated like garbage

    Cons

    Bad management. Avoid like the plague. I know they went out of business and became Big Rhino but Glassdoor insisted I add a review

      Pros

      Great people, talent, and perks (free lunch) always.

      Cons

      Awful management, no mobility, and no work/life balance

        I worked at Arrowhead Advertising full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        this one will be short. There was a lot of free pizza, desserts and soda if you're into that type of thing. Oh, the people were mostly cool. A lot of innocent bystanders caught up in this mess of a company.

        Cons

        You wouldn’t believe the amount of gossip and info being passed around. Being a creative, you wouldn't expect to hear things regarding media, account services and finances but we hear it all the time. Especially from those who work outside the company which tells you that things are bad.. Let's start with creative department. It used to be a pretty strong department until a new guy was brought in and basically ripped...

        Advice to Management

        Bottom line is that you should definitely stay away from this company as an employee or as a client.

        I worked at Arrowhead Advertising full-time

        Pros

        I worked at Arrowhead for a while (by their standards anyway) & was actually one of those that left on decent terms —as in, not a casualty of the CCO/high turnover rate/mass layoffs. I never thought to leave a review because I wasn’t angry enough to leave a bad one nor was I encouraged by Arrowhead to leave a positive one. At this point, enough time has passed that I believe I can leave a review that has both pros and...

        Cons

        Unfortunately, employees themselves are not held at real value by management. Actions speak louder than words and ‘thank you’ doesn’t mean anything when your employees are worried about job stability/getting paid/being swamped/getting trapped in a pointless meeting with the CCO. I still don’t understand how the owner of Arrowhead hasn’t connected the dots between the downfall of his company and the hiring of the current...

        Advice to Management

        - Get a new CCO. The current one has ruined Arrowhead’s reputation. Reputations can always be salvaged and the first step for Arrowhead is getting rid of the current CCO disaster. - Train your account team to know the basics of design/development/editing. It’s embarrassing sending them to meet with clients when they have no clue what they’re selling.

        I have been working at Arrowhead Advertising full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        All the reviews of meeting great co-workers are correct. You meet some people you become life long friends with. It is because you are clinging to each other for some type of ability to survive dealing with the day to day of this place. The CEO, CFO and CCO have an open door policy which is unheard of in other companies. The CEO/CFO aren't here most of the time so good luck actually making a meeting happen; and people...

        Cons

        After all those pros, how could anyone want to leave this place? I'm staying here forever and ever and ever.

        Advice to Management

        Keep up the great work! You're doing great, really great. It should be studied, probably not replicated, but definitely studied.

        I worked at Arrowhead Advertising full-time

        Pros

        Decent pay for decent work. Not the most cutting edge agency but they are trying to look the part. It's as cutting edge as it can be for being in the boonies.

        Cons

        There is a lot of cookie cutter work done here. A lot of the same creative gets recycled to different clients who never know about it. Owner bought a soccer team and took the creative departments focus away from their real clients and worked and moral suffered more than any other placebo have ever been.

        Advice to Management

        upper management, the owner especially could use a little humbling. Most of the day to day employing get tired of management intimidation tactics.

        I worked at Arrowhead Advertising full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Free soft drinks, beer, pool table and a dude hired from Chicago. Although I think they fired him.

        Cons

        Don't know where to start. Boring work, horrible CDs, writers, art directors and account team. A handful of people knew what they were doing but the owner fired them. Could possibly be the worst place I've ever worked for. And yes to the paying of the workers late, all of it is true. The owner pretty much lied about everything.

        Advice to Management

        Quit and never return to the advertising. Take that no talent hack CCO with you too.
