    Good environment, CEO's kind and patience

    Pros

    -CEO's more of a mentor than a boss, he is kind and helpful, patient to guide. - Friendly working environment, friendly colleague. - Flexible as long as you finish your tasks efficiently and effectively, you pretty much have the freedom you want to have. - Company bonding, frequent entertainment session eg concerts and yummy meals. - complimentary staff pantry credit on top of the existing free pantry provided. - beautiful office to work in.

    Cons

    - No bonus but you've a part of the share, - Company politics are normal, just stay out of it

    Black Marketing: an honest chapter

    Pros

    Safer to put all the content under “cons”

    Cons

    The boss: A joke. He is not a leader on any grounds. Think he was bullied as a child and is now getting his own back on the worlds. The work: Monotonous. Robotic. Send out 700+ LinkedIn connections a week??! If this is what you want to learn then this is the company for you. The staff: Only good thing about this company. But they won’t stick around if they’re any good. The reviews: The only reason there is a number of positive reviews is because so many staff turnover and your boss will use their account to fraudulently post compliments about himself. Tragic really. The clients: Won’t stick around for longer than 1-2 months. All based overseas (Switzerland etc) because your boss has already upset the majority of Singapore and got a bad rep. Has to get business elsewhere. The pay: Poor. But should arrive on time. Unless you’re fired or let go, then your boss will keep that for himself. The office: Location changes every few months. Guess your boss is continuing to upset people or can no longer afford rental.

    I had the honor to work for Chris and what an inspiration it was!

    Pros

    I had the honor and privilege to work for Chris until February and what an inspiration it was! The amount of information, education, tips and advice Chris can cram into a relatively short time is just amazing! There were too many highlights to mention but I was really impressed with how you can create a company feel through individual employee profiles. For all the other tips he gave, just find out when is recruiting next and go there to enjoy and learn.

    Cons

    If you don't listen to Chris you won't succeed.

    Pros

    DON'T WORK FOR BLACK MARKETING!

    Cons

    NEVER! JUST DON'T START OR KNOW THEM. IT IS SO BAD IN SO MANY MANY WAYS. Let's talk about the workload, it is herrendously a great deal of work! Would you like to understand on flexi working hours in Black Marketing? It also means no sleep. Yup, that include your weekends/holiday. What? You think they compensate it WITH HUGE ENORMOUS pay. NOOO! THEY PAY YOU PEANUTS! OMG, Don't let me start on the management and the CEO himself. I'm not sure if the management is doing their job, I know they are just there to have some coffee, video calling their families or whoever at work, have lunch and chill out at the workspace. Talking and laughing with the 'senior management team' and leave for home. Ohh wait, even if we have a Skype call, they will just enter to let the client know their presence and leave. No, they don't have time to sit for the call. What if their coffee gets cold?? And the CEO himself.. Dear god, how do i even put it in words. He writes reviews on himself in Glassdoor. Obviously highlighting what he think he is good at. SO, we have so many ppl leaving black marketing, so he uses all the ex employees email address and create a profile in glassdoor and write about himself. He is just blinded with the manipulative senior management team he hired. And there is no 35 ppl in his team!!! Don't lie. I think it's just 8 of them left now? "A bad management team can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation"

    Account Manager

    Pros

    - Flexibility - A lot of autonomy - Direct exposure to C-level clients - Trust in ability of staff to get things done their way as long as the targeted outcome is achieved and guidance is provided if staff needs assistance - Great office and team - Opportunity for growth or switch to other agencies within the group to explore other parts of social media marketing and personal branding

    Cons

    As in any agency, the clients are king and it is fast paced working environment with tight deadlines. Anyone working in this industry should be aware, so no con that is specific to this agency.
