    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.

    Pros

    They really want their employees to have a good work/life balance, and strive for good morale. Coworkers are friendly and collaborative. Opportunity to learn more about digital marketing, as well as develop yourself professionally. We are under a large company so there are great benefit to that, but the CJ team is smaller so you never get lost in the large corporation. Management listens to employees, you have a voice...

    Cons

    Lots of calls/meetings to let clients know what we are doing & to justify our service. Many don't fully understand affiliate marketing and its breadth so you have to explain. Pay is lower than other companies for similar work, but you can learn lots of things to elevate your position in the company.

    Pros

    Your colleagues - you will work with some of the smartest and personable people in your career at CJ. I can say I made life-long friends.

    Cons

    CJ was once a company that embraced work/life balance but now it's nothing but a sweatshop. The salary is not competitive at all and you will work 10-12 hours a day with no regard from leadership about your health, wellness or work/life balance. They just keep piling more and more on you until you break and micromanage you if you crack a joke with others. Please beware of this company because it's not worth the stress...

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of burn out and overworking your people. Realize you get more productivity when you care about health and wellness. Don't reprimand employees because they mess up due to the fact that they are burned out and purely unhappy.

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

    Pros

    Great environment, the culture is open and welcoming. Your team WANTS to be at work, and push you to learn. Constantly changing and interesting, every day is different. Managers are understanding and open to time off, running errands, etc. during the workday.

    Cons

    Benefits are OK, certainly could be better. There's a huge learning curve coming into affiliate marketing so be prepared to not understand what you are supposed to do until about 2 months in.

    Advice to Management

    Update your training. For new employees, especially ones without affiliate marketing experience, it is extremely difficult to learn on outdated modules. Please update, so that training and learning can be as easy as possible.

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Santa Barbara, CA
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at CJ Affiliate by Conversant

    Pros

    Open to employees from different lines of business. Very fun atmosphere. Great chance to learn affiliate marketing and begin a career in a growing industry.

    Cons

    Hard to advance. Won't advance without degree. Work environment can be bogged down with a number of people who are happy doing just enough to get by.

    Advice to Management

    Really take a look at salaries to become competitive. Open a shop in the North West where a large and growing number of your clients are based, which would also give employees a less expensive place to live.
