    Pros

    Great place to start your career and build a foundation in digital marketing. -Overall great people to work with -Good benefits -Great training and learning opportunities

    Cons

    -Management. Upper management has been at the helm for a few years but still has little grasp of the dynamics of the business. Decisions are issued and retracted quickly. Aggressive personalities make it difficult to have a constructive discussion about the path forward. You essentially need to get in everyone's face to advance your ideas. This in turn leads to similar personalities...

    Pros

    This industry is demanding, competitive and always changing. If you are a hard worker who is open minded, you will begin to use the adaptability and flexibility this job teaches you as a strength, rather than seeing it as weakness. The work, is no doubt, challenging. You need to be motivated, proactive and downright assertive at times. But learning to navigate the company and difficult clients has been one of the greatest...

    Cons

    While I agree with the messages new management is driving, often times they are delivered in a way that is not effective. Fear will never be a great motivator. Product development has been interesting. CJ tends to do this thing where we push and sell a certain "hot topic" but literally have zero means from a product level to support it. Or the tools we do have are totally outdated and upper...

    Advice to Management

    Listen. Listen. Listen. Literally just stop talking so much. The best leaders listen and then take action. If you show people you are truly invested in their growth and professional development, rather than trying to stump them in a team meeting, people will respect you and the work they are doing so much more. Face the retention issue head-on. Little perks matter and keep people around. Can we get an ice cream truck...

    Pros

    - Really nice people in general. Everyone is friendly and welcoming - Good resume builder to get your foot in the door at a professional company - Not a particularly high salary, but decent for entry level.

    Cons

    - Salary does not scale well as you move up the company - Opportunities for growth become scarce after one promotion - Upper management completely changed recently. It is now a boy's club of old friends at the top. This is openly discussed among employees. Employees are uninspired by leadership. -Moral is LOW, many long time employees at the company say the company has...

    Advice to Management

    - Hire more people instead of blaming employees for not being able to do the work of 2-3 people and moving work around - Listen to your employees and realize you may be in a bubble at the top levels of management

    Pros

    Good reputation with clients, leader in the space, atmosphere is pretty good.

    Cons

    Upper management has been so focused on making the company look good to buyers, that it's not paying due diligence to its' employees. Little room to grow as people stay forever. Any advancements in technology TAKE FOREVER and tech is not as brilliant as it should be.

    Advice to Management

    invest in employees or they'll continue to leave, work on being more nimble or better technologies for clients will hurt revenue and clients will defect

    Pros

    The atmosphere and day-to-day is generally positive and they put on some fun events for the employees. Overall your experience here is going to be radically different based on what department you work in.

    Cons

    Lower and middle management can be very inexperienced and ineffectual, and it doesn't seem like upper management is aware of that or they are not willing to improve things. The managers seem to be very self-serving sometimes and don't have their employees' best interests in mind.

    Pros

    Great people, many opportunities to advance or move departments, very good benefits, and many learning opportunities. Recommend as a place to work with many great, smart people, and to become knowledgeable in affiliate marketing. There are many resources available, the departments work well together, and the help from teammates is typically above par. The company events for employees are fun, and it is a young people...
