    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.

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

    Pros

    + Mostly a talented team and incredibly hardworking team (during my employment) + Made life long friends + Decent pay + They decorate your desk on birthdays and occasionally buy lunch for the staff

    Cons

    - Lies, lies and lies. Selective hearing and will always play ignorance in defense. Get things in writing! - An embarrassment to technology and web marketing - Preferential hiring and sexism abound - Promised benefits but never delivered because of incompetence - Constant payroll issues and arguments over promised incentives and PTO - Extra effort and long hours will go unnoticed - Hostile and dirty work environment...

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving horribly poor advice on technology and marketing. Try to make it a year without turning over a complete staff employees. In fact, stop hiring employees at all. Maybe go back to selling cars.

    I noticed you mentioned the need to “get things in writing” in your review. As a Cactus Sky employee you are provided with a detailed employee handbook that outlines all of our procedures and rules regarding vacation time, paid time off and expectations. All employees are required ...

    I worked at Cactus Sky Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management aside, I never worked with such a wonderful and hardworking team of professionals in my life. I made lifelong friends here. Unfortunately, all have left now and moved on. Management never once recognized the phenomenal team that was in place here. Pros? That would imply there were benefits to working here. The only pro to working here was having a job and a paycheck when I needed one. Of course, I had payroll...

    Cons

    1. Lies abound. They will smile and nod and pretend to hear, care and/or understand and then completely disregard anything discussed in the conversation once it's over. Anything you say can and will be used against you in the future should you in any way fail to exceed standards, which there are none. Contracts are vague and client expectations are not clearly dictated. In addition to lack of internal procedures and protocols...

    Advice to Management

    Give a crap about building a company that can be scalable and creating a system where employees can enjoy a fast paced work environment based on lots of happy clients rather than lots of unclear, frustrating, sub-par quality work and poor employee treatment. Also, have some accountability and be a man.

    "If they offer you a position - just say no."

      I have been working at Cactus Sky Communications

      Pros

      The boss is a nightmare and will blame you from day 1 for everything wrong with his business. He does not know how to grow a company or to manage a team.

      Cons

      He will hide behind both religion and excuses for everything wrong. If you quit, he will also try to hold your paycheck out of sheer anger because he is a coward and a cheating liar.

      Advice to Management

      Go back to selling used cars or something that doesn't involve marketing or managing a business.

      It is a shame that throughout 14 years of being in business, it only takes a few recent bad hires to populate this site with their negative opinions. I want to specifically address the claim that this employee's paycheck was withheld, because this is just not factual. I have ...
