    I worked at Brand Networks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Brand Networks is built on the backs of a passionate, smart group of talented people who take great pride in their work. It provides a centralized, robust product solution that is very much applicable to the marketplace for both agencies and brand direct customers. Their depth of knowledge across social and digital activation is unchallenged. You will not find a finer collective group of nice people to work for... across the industry.

    Cons

    It's a fun spirited atmosphere. Not the ideal place for someone who craves the traditional corporate atmosphere. Everyone is treated like an adult and expected to be an active participant in training and development. If you need everything spoon fed to you then this should not be your next career move.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Nice people, always something new on the horizon, great working with big-time brand names and some of today's hottest social platforms

    Cons

    Sometimes it feels like there are too many directions that the company is going and not enough communication from top to bottom

    I worked at Brand Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good compensation, good culture, start up like atmosphere.

    Cons

    Poor leadership in directing company toward success. Layoffs have become routine at BN.

    Advice to Management

    Short term success is just short term. When you look at the big picture, this company is in trouble 3 years out on the current course.

    Pros

    Great work environment. The people are really knowledgeable and helpful. Family environment from the moment you walk in. Great team atmosphere. CEO is great, great individual with great ideas.

    Cons

    Large disconnect from upper management with internal staff. Work-life balance seemingly doesn't exist - nights and weekends but that standard for this industry. Compensation for level of work/time put in does not match.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your own people both from a growth and compensation standpoint.

    Pros

    Somewhat good office culture & stocked kitchen

    Cons

    Lack of vision at the leadership level, the company is always changing directions and as a result we stand still instead of moving forward. Leadership promotes favorites. If you're not a favorite, you're not getting promoted. Gossip, gossip, gossip. Company talks a big game. Asks for feedback quarterly from all employees but never takes action to make changes to improve. Everyone is unhappy. If they haven't left yet..., they will.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction and stick to it. Value your employees or else you'll lose them.

    Colleagues are smart and best in biz

    Co seems to hire people based on some master plan job spec rather than need and you end up with dim bulbs like current mm.

    Advice to Management

    Less layers; salespeople need to actually SELL when was last sale? 2009?
