    I have been working at Beacon Digital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Talented, friendly, and hardworking team where everyone pulls their weight and is willing to learn

    Diverse industry clients, and a variety of projects that keep the day-to-day interesting

    Flexibility to work from the Beacon Digital local office space or remote. Also, flexibility in taking personal time or PTO

    Potential for growth within your role as the company is continuing to expand

    There is little micromanagement and you are trusted to get your work done on your own terms

    Cons

    Employees are given a lot of responsibility, and workload can be heavy. You will have to be able to work hard and smart to manage your time wisely

    There are no “easy” days, right now we are all hands on deck to accomplish projects and tasks

    As processes and procedures change you have to be flexible and adapt quickly

    Advice to Management

    Growth is important, but its currently a challenge to make sure quality work is still accomplished in very short timeframes. Overall, this outlook should be improved as we add staff to support our growing client base.

    Company understands that for it to grow, it needs to provide its employees opportunity to grow and thrive.

    Pros

    Smart, fun and talented team of people who are very supportive of each other.
    Dedicated leadership that is committed to moving the company forward and making Beacon Digital an attractive place to work.
    Laid back atmosphere - we're serious about producing good work for our clients but we don't take ourselves too seriously.
    A lot of opportunity to carve out your own path and department
    Flexible work environment and great benefits

    Cons

    We work across many different clients which makes it difficult to focus on more in-depth deliverables. While people being willing to jump in and help out is a positive, we are still in an "everyone do everything" mindset that can be inefficient. We're a small (but growing team) which can mean some long work weeks to meet all of our clients' needs.

    Pros

    Working at Beacon Digital has been an amazing experience so far. Everyone on the team is incredibly welcoming and willing to help at the drop of a hat. Beacon Digital values all of its employees and offers a comfortable working environment. The ability to work remotely and the flexible PTO is just one of the many perks available through Beacon Digital.

    Cons

    As typical with an agency position, it can be intimidating at the start to grasp what each client does and what they're looking for, but Beacon Digital has great organizational procedures in place to alleviate that stress.

    As a start-up, there is lots to juggle! Sometimes that means long days to accomplish everything that needs doing as we continue to grow.

    Team is very talented and easy to work with;
    Owner of the company is very knowledgeable and a good mentor;
    Office is stylish and cozy;
    Working from home is always an option;
    The work is interesting and clients tend to be smart and savvy;

    It's a start-up so it's a lot of work and sometimes long hours (but if you are someone who earnestly works hard, it will probably pay off because the company is growing. )
