    Pros

    Managers are great and very open. They allow great flexibity and you can move about the company within 9 months.

    Cons

    Within the intergration process that we are going through right now, I just feel that news could be shared more and faster. I understand that merging companies takes alot of time.

    Pros

    Global company, great coworkers, decent comp package, very good work-life balance (at least in my position), many different support groups: Veterans, Moms, Mosaic (minorities), Women. The company does seem to care about it's employees and wants to help them any way possible.

    Cons

    Company is big enough that decisions can take time to filter down. Global dispersal makes forming close bonds with coworkers very difficult. Pay ceiling seems to be low unless you move to another team.

    - Lack of quant opps - see above
    - Poor work-life balance for certain teams
    - Very academic
    - Pay is low for most markets they operate in
    - Managers are incentivized to keep people on their team as opposed to helping them find better ones

    Pros

    A good place to network and learn about the corporate environment. Would be a great springboard to another position, either within the company or elsewhere. The company offers good benefits. Now part of Gartner, the company is large enough to offer opportunities to move to another department if the position doesn't fit with long-term goals or if you want a broader experience.

    Cons

    The environment in the Creative Department is toxic. High turnover, low pay, and required weekend work are combined with incapable leadership ignorant of industry standards and practices. The department lurches from one ineffective reorganization to another. Promotions within the department are not based on performance and are not equally available to all staff.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone into a leadership role with industry experience from outside of the company.

    Pros

    Great training program, good leadership team

    Promotion requirements are very odd because you had to pass a test and at the end of the quarter you had to be in the office very early and late even those who were top performers
