    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I'm a web developer at Cactus Sky. It's fast-paced, like breakneck speed, which isn't for everyone but if you are A.D.D like me it's fantastic. My co-workers are great (the ones I didn't like have moved along), YAY, because who likes getting stuck with people you don't work well with? The pay is good. For me the commute is fantastic and the people I report to are funny and easy to talk too. My creative input is considered...

    Cons

    I don't really have any, however, it is really fast paced with deadlines, sometimes this creates stress for people. If other people's stress bothers you, this would be a con.

    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications

    Pros

    I have worked with Cactus Sky and Peter Martin on and off for several years. This is a great company to work for! They are always on top of new technology in order to offer nothing but the best service to their clients! Clients deserve to be treated like human beings and not just money and at Cactus Sky, that is the treatment they receive, great treatment and quality work! Peter is also a very stand up guy. He does what...

    Cons

    The only cons I would say there ever has been is that Peter has a big heart and some employees continue or have continued to push and see how far they can go and how much they can take advantage, in general, how much they could goof off and get paid for it. Those people generally cause disruption throughout the offices. It is hard for Peter to discipline or have to fire people. I would like to add to all of those people...

    Advice to Management

    Write people up then fire them if they do not correct their issues.

    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications full-time

    Pros

    As the human resources director, I have worked closely with all of the employees regarding their personal issues. The company has extremely flexible policies related to working from home and taking time off. We have employed several parents including single mothers and have been more than accommodating to their schedules and specific needs. Employee with children have been allowed to adjust their time to coordinate...

    Cons

    Some trust issues have arisen over the past few months. Past employees have taken advantage of our flexible policies and not completed outside work and also stolen company property. We have done our best to cleanse the team of these bad apples and our current team is very trustworthy and close-knit.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the management would be more careful with new hires. Maybe a probationary period before the issuance of a company laptop. Our flexible policies is one of the benefits about working here so I don't think those should be eliminated. Trust is integral to any office environment and we have a good level of trust now that we should maintain.

    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications

    Pros

    I enjoy being challenged constantly. Everyday I learn something I can use in my daily affairs. I had basic tech qualifications and specifically what to expand my knowledge in this area. I enjoy the nights, weekends and holidays off.

    Cons

    Past employees have been challenging.

    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been with the company for a little over two weeks now, and some of the things I really like are: 1. positive work environment, 2. work with some great professionals, 3. company focused on delivering great customer service to clients, and marketing great products to our clients, 4 "nimble" company that can react fast to changes, 5. work - life balance

    Cons

    Have not come across anything at this time that I do not like.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, it can only get better!

    I worked at Cactus Sky Communications full-time

    Pros

    I worked for Cactus Sky for quite some time. Working there was a great experience. These days, most employers do not care about their employees and only care about themselves by paying low wages but treating the employee like they owe you their lives just because they gave you a job. It is not that way at Cactus Sky. Peter Martin is a great business owner that really cares about his employees! The only reason I left is...

    There are no cons any longer since the drama team is gone.

    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been waiting for a job such as this for years where I am able to work 9am-5pm. I appreciate the amount of compassion and understanding that management has offered when it comes to time off and even external family matters. The management cares for you as a person and they desire to help you in anyway they can to make you happy. I have increases my knowledge and skills towards the marketing industry since I have...

    Cons

    In my opinion this company really does not have any negatives at this time. I know the "Cons" I may have had in the past were directly a reflection of past individuals who created so much negativity and constantly complained and certainly had not direct reflection of company or management. The work environment here really places importance in honesty and accountability when it comes to hours you have worked and the...

    Advice to Management

    Please hire people who are caring towards others, are givers and are morally sound in mind as a person. This is a very small office environment and everyone's personality affects others in the office so please consider those who will come into the team in the future.

    I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The major focus of this company is advertising and marketing, however this is also an umbrella company for other products and services. The variety of business ventures allows you to gain work experience in different fields. The small team makes the atmosphere less competitive and each department is valued separately for their contributions. The constant work-flow makes the day go by quickly and there is always something...

    Cons

    This is not the job for you if you need a participation ribbon or a gold star for everything you do. This is a marketing/advertising company with many clients coming and going each month, you have to keep up. The project you finish yesterday is not going to be as important as the project you need to finish today. If you need individual praise and accolades for every little thing you do, this is not the place for you....

    Advice to Management

    Because of the small team and familial atmosphere the management is prone to giving multiple chances to undeserving employees. These "second chances" fosters more laziness in low-performing employees. My only advice would be to "cut the fat" so to speak before these cancerous underachievers spread.

    Pros

    Not too many here at Csd, lead igniter, testimonial builder or the other names Peter Martin uses.

    Cons

    The positive reviews were written upon request as a task by the owner.

    I worked at Cactus Sky Communications full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The best things that I got out of working for this company was getting to talk to clients who were some really nice people and the few friends I made while I was there.

    Cons

    I have read through many of the reviews and felt it important for people that are looking to work for this company to know what they will be getting into. On the second week that I worked there, another employee told me, "do not expect this to be a forever job." At that time I thought this was just a disgruntled employee but as time went on, I began to understand this employees feelings. Most employees do not last...

    I really do not feel that any advice I would give to Management would be paid any attention so I am not going to bother.
