    I have been working at CJ Affiliate by Conversant full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - great work/life balance - fun office culture with company happy hours and outings - good onboarding process and ongoing training - co-workers are super friendly, collaborative and helpful - good on-paper benefits (401k, unlimited PTO, health, dental & vision, commuter benefits, etc.) - higher-up management/directors are very open and transparent about what's going on in the company - definitely feel like...

    Cons

    - Nothing significant so far - At first I was a little hesitant/stressed because of an isolated bad transition, but now I definitely can see how much the company is invested in training employees and creating upward mobility/growth opportunities for employees within the company

    I worked at CJ Affiliate by Conversant full-time

    Pros

    High caliber clients and variety allow one to learn alot about the affiliate industry -Colleagues -Our office let you bring your dog, some do not

    Cons

    -Account Directors - very poor leadership; they offer no assistance and are unprofessional and arrogant -Toxic environment - high-stress, lack of trustworthiness, lack of respect towards employees -Sweatshop - Directors do not care about any work-life balance; be prepared to work all hours of the day and weekends -Low Pay and no bonus or signing plan for some positions

    Advice to Management

    Be a professional company where you have Directors that set an example for those working for the company. Leave your egos at the door for a more positive environment. Value good work and good people. The turnover rate is off the chart and everyone pretends it's fine and does nothing. Talk to your employees about their days, their challenges. The business will always be there - it's time to start taking a look at your...

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Santa Barbara, CA

      I worked at CJ Affiliate by Conversant full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Company culture was great. The "CJ Summer Olympics" is hilarious – everyone dresses up according to different themes and goes down to the beach to compete. Halloween is also a huge to-do at CJ ... each department does something special. The people are friendly – as is usually the case with people in Santa Barbara. Many employees are young and embarking on their digital/affiliate marketing career. Many people have been...

      Cons

      Annual raises are minimal. To earn more $ you'll need to be promoted into new roles.

        I worked at CJ Affiliate by Conversant full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Lunch is provided often, semi convenient location

        Cons

        Poor Management, very long hours, getting sold again this year, not much company culture in NY office

        Advice to Management

        The New York office looks and feels like the it was forgotten by the rest of the company. The employees at other locations actually feel sorry for us if you ever get the chance to speak with them. I know that the work culture is different in NY compared to CA, but its too a point where we are being taken advantage of. On multiple occasions smaller teams were forced to miss company wide social events to address non priority...

        Pros

        I truly do love coming to work at CJ every day as I am constantly motivated and encouraged by my supervisors, teammates, and clients to succeed in my role. Over the course of my 1.5year employment, I have been challenged to achieve and rewarded with promotion. CJ values hard work, positivity, collaboration and thinking outside of the box. The company is growing at a steady pace and I can confidently say I will be sticking...

        I have been working at CJ Affiliate by Conversant full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Within my team's experience, CJ management 100% cares about its people. When the team was faced with a year-long influx of workloads, management strove to ensure teammates were taking due rest/PTO to avoid burnout. While this is a serious business, the culture of people I've experienced is that we don't take ourselves too seriously. In other words, supervisors are more like mentors, coworkers and managers all have a...

        Cons

        I occasionally sensed that entry level positions weren't always respected as anything other than entry level; that said, I'd mentioned this to management and saw noticeable positive changes were made during the start to end of holding an entry level position. Still room for growth, but never a bad thing to know that management is actually listening. The culture can feel too corporate at times—in other words, process...

        Cons

        Too strict Below average pay Corporate politics Micromanaging Overworked Dishonest in interview process

        Advice to Management

        Let your employees be who they are and say what they feel. Support them. Uplift them. Be flexible. In the end, that's how you can find out the best in them.

        Pros

        When I started at CJ, I came from 9 years at a previous company and was nervous about making the jump. After 3 years with CJ, I can honestly say that it was the best decision I could have made. I've had ample opportunities to grow and exercise my expertise with a variety of people in the company. My managers have been wonderful about giving me a chance to push my boundaries and stretch the scope of my work. I work with...

        Cons

        In reading some of these reviews it seems like some other departments may have some resource issues that is causing burnout. However, there has been a lot of efforts made lately to adding headcount to solve for those concerns.
