    I worked at Conversant (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Competitive benefits: health, 401k matching, recreation room (that you will probably never use, and if you do use it, your managers will just give you a bad review) free tea and coffee in the office
    - Clean workplace, kind receptionist, tasteful decor,
    - Looks good on a resume, they give you a lot of responsibilities that you can easily BS as more important than they actually are

    Cons

    - You may get assigned some meaningless responsibilities that don't generate company growth and get in the way of very important client work. If you fail to complete said meaningless responsibilities, your managers will not be happy despite the fact that they are tasks that the company can 100% survive without
    - IRONY: there is a horrendous lack of creativity in the creative department
    - Upper management does not listen to their employees, they pick their favorites and require you to take on more work than you actually can handle.
    - Mangers do not know how to logically divide the labor, so what happens is you have some people struggling, getting to the office at 7am to avoid going past deadlines while others are leisurely chatting going from desk to desk
    - Cliquey, difficult to make friends if you're the quiet/focused type of worker
    - DO NOT invest in their stock options... it has tanked since 2015

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and promote the talent you have already before you publish an ad on the web seeking new employees. Stop discriminating against employees that are not outgoing go-getters. There is nothing wrong with a hard, focused worker who doesn't mingle with everyone.

    I was working here for a long time and had to witness some wonderful talented people leave out of pure frustration with management.

    Pros

    "Needs an overhaul"

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Compensation at median range for the industry. Solid L&D dept. Company a bit more stable since acquisition by ADS.

    Cons

    HIGH turnover is debilitating. Its nearly impossible to get things done when no one is invested in the business or truly engaged in making it successful. Management is not held accountable. Prob a good environment for a certain few who seem to be immune to consequences. But for those who seek true value and career satisfaction, you may want to look elsewhere....

    Advice to Management

    Own your lines of business. Strive to create a more fulfilling environment for your associates. Pay attention to talent retention.

    Had an awesome time working for them. Overall Great company and great people. People are why people stay there.

    Cons

    Downsides of working here is the pay isn't great. Could be much more competitive for their industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on.
