      Great CEO and Work Life Balance

      Jun 8, 2021 - Media Team in Detroit, MI

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Unlimited PTO (MeTO), great environment of co-workers from different teams (the people are always a plus to work with), diversity & inclusion programs were evolving & growing - loved the variety & opportunities created to promote it. CEO is great, he gets to know his employees by name and cares about the company.

      Cons

      No opportunities to grow professionally/career wise. No cross-training in other platforms/teams. Does not hire within when opportunities arise. If there's help needed in other verticals, they don't take help from other team members showing that they're available to help. Managers/Directors aren't that helpful to help you get where you need to be.

      Pros

      Most similar level employees are great. Benefits are good. Time off is also pretty good.

      Cons

      Promotions are somewhat hard to come by, and not always earned by merit.

      Rotten at the Top

      Mar 4, 2021 - Account Executive

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good, talented people still trying to fight the good fight in some pockets of the agency.

      Cons

      Not nearly enough people to do the work. Some clients and lots of staff are jumping ship. Morale is at an all time low. Senior leadership is clueless and rudderless and keeps adding more and more executives when the agency desperately needs hands-on people to handle the workload.

      Dangerous do not attempt

      Pros

      Free snacks, unlimited PTO, some really good people...some. They are really trying to get past "ghetto day" with diversity & inclusion sessions but it's still obvious. Definitely more transparent than most companies but favoritism is also transparent on all levels.

      Cons

      Severely understaffed, upper management did not care employees worked 12 hour days all too often. Haven't won new clients in years only lost. Laid off 1/3 of the company then rehired lower paying roles.
