    "A great place to be... a tough place to grow..."

    Pros

    It is a really fun, innovative, and creative group of people. Big still has the 'family' feeling of a small company, but all the benefits of working at a larger company. The office is amazing and one can feel creative just by being in it. One of the biggest focuses at Big is to find people who not only can do their job extremely well, but fit in with an over all culture. This means that everyone all has the same type of goals, dreams, and aspirations as well as very similar personality types. This makes for great company events and makes it really easy to create really great friendships.

    Cons

    There, currently, is no structure or plan in place to promote employee development and growth through the company. Basically, one can come in and work in a fun and amazing place, but once they get tired, bored, or no longer challenged with their current position in the company, it is almost impossible to move, shift, or grow within the company.

    Advice to Management

    The senior management at Big is amazing. They are always looking out for the employees and have a genuine concern for everyone in the company. The only feedback I would give would be to focus more on employee development and not stick to such stringent advancement schedules or raise criteria.


  6. "Very Positive Internship Experience"

    I worked at Big Communications as an intern

    Pros

    Wide variety of client work, hands on experience, great company culture

    Cons

    The internship is unpaid, which means not all of your assigned work is valuable. Still a great experience.

    Pros

    Great People and Overall a fun place to work

    Cons

    If you're entering the industry they aren't a great starting point. They expect you to walk through the doors requiring minimum training.

    I have been working at Big Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people were the only reason I stayed as long as I did. They truly were teammates.

    Cons

    Executive management either didn't know what was going on beneath them or they chose not to do anything about the moral.


  9. "Amazing People, Difficult time to work there"

    Pros

    BIG is full of talented people who are amazing to work with. It's a very forward thinking environment where you are allowed to wear jeans to work, and even bring your dog. Management is very flexible and accommodating. The work is also quite rewarding the majority of the time.

    Cons

    BIG is at a transitioning point with a lot of new senior management. Morale is low at times along with heightened stress at some points. The different departments are also very separate and sometimes don't communicate well with one another. Client expectations are very high, and at times difficult to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Get all of the departments in sync with one another and keep morale up.

    Pros

    Fun people to work with.

    Cons

    No growth. Very demanding and complicated healthcare industry. Not worth the stress and long hours. High expectations with little rewards.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with healthcare background/knowledge.
