      Great for Flexibility and Experience

      Pros

      The flexibility is some of the best I've experienced in my professional career. It's an extremely collaborative work environment and everyone is happy to help regardless of their position within the company. The fast-paced environment keeps you on your toes allowing your work to rarely feel stagnant. Have found genuine support and encouragement from many of the managers I've worked with and can point to specific skills I have learned during my time here.

      Cons

      The fairly constant change among departments can sometimes be flustering or cause a backup in work.

      Pros

      BrandYourself has given me so many great skills and tons of opportunity to grow. I love working with a talented and passionate team that goes out of their way to support me. I have stayed at BY for years because new challenges keep things interesting and make it worthwhile to expand my skillset, and the flexibility is incredibly valuable to my work-life balance and goals outside of work.

      Cons

      This is a fast paced industry, and if you don't like to adapt in the face of change and new challenges, you will quickly become frustrated.

      The Perfect Sandbox for New Profressionals

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Flexibility (Workflow and personal accommodations) -Varying management styles -Team support -Effort in culture -Refined client journey The management team does a pretty decent job in being flexible (mental health days, FREE health service app, emotionally intelligent team, maternity leave plan, service support, etc.) for the team at large. Comparatively to other companies, BrandYourself is quite understanding to the nuances of life and work than any other company I have heard of. While it does have some flaws, they are aware of them and do take slow, long term steps to change those. However, since this is a training ground for out-of-college professionals - many individuals do not stay at the company long enough to see these changes take place.

      Cons

      -Fast and reactive changes in department planning. -Fast paced changes allow items to fall through cracks. -"College thinking" individuals hold team back. "Student" minded employees view management as their guidance counselors and not their superior at times. The line of professional and friend can get blurred due to the younger majority in the company's service team. The company does its best to support individuals in or outside of the company with small culture initiatives and thorough reviews. However, a good handful of employees do leave this good company frustrated because they lack personal awareness to make the decision to move on from their position when they do not feel fulfilled. Again, the entry level position is meant to be a sandbox for young professionals to find out if they want to grow further in the company or move on - some stay in their sandbox opportunity too long and then point the finger at management. It is easy for many to "blame management" for a lot but from what I see it is people's inability to take personal and professional responsibility for their long term career choices. Short answer: Fantastic to grow your chops and stay but know when it is your time to move on.

      Pros

      The only redeeming is the head of HR.

      Cons

      Everything. Long hours, ridiculous expectations, management that has no clue what they’re doing, massive office clique issue, favoritism, massive breakdown in communication.

      Pros

      The company, while 11 years old, still feels like a startup in all the best possible ways. We all work so well together, have a great work environment and great relationships. The benefits are good, the atmosphere is great, and we all like to work hard to help our clients to the fullest.

      Cons

      None I can think of at the moment.

      Pros

      Positive team environment, transparency from every level of the organization, and a mission that's easy to support.

      Cons

      There is no 401K match. The fast-paced nature of the industry can be a challenge at times, but it's rewarding to see our hard work pay off and create lasting effects.

      Solid career opportunity

      Jan 19, 2021 - Account Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The company has been around for about a decade but still very much thinks of itself as a startup. There are lots of opportunities to make an impact and put your fingerprint on the way things are done. Those who take ownership over their work and stand out from the pack get noticed and appreciated. There is also a lot of autonomy. You learn a lot from those above you but once you've proven yourself, you get lots of room to build relationships with clients and make campaign decisions on your own. Work-life balance is good. People will sometimes put in a little extra time here and there to accommodate client issues or urgent things, but it's mostly an 8-hour workday. During Covid, work went temporarily full-time remote. The flexibility has been great and seems likely to continue post-Covid. Benefits are decent.

      Cons

      Pay is on the lower end. No matching for 401k. Management cares more about the company's product than the in-house services, and that shows sometimes.

      Pros

      Excellent benefits for a small company. Open and transparent leadership Amazing care and concern for employees (wonderful COVID response) Work from Home Employees can have open and honest communication Medical and Dental are average for the size of the company but the Vision is outstanding. A company that cares for its employees and will go out of its way to provide assistance when an employee faces challenges in their personal life. Wonderful culture

      no 401K match at this time.

      Pros

      Teammates who are collaborative and supportive, direct management that cares about you with room to grow and professionally develop. Flexible work hours and work from home opportunities, even before covid, are also excellent perks.

      Cons

      Would love a 401k match, that is not currently an option.
