    I have been working at Conversant full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is hands-down of the best companies I’ve worked at since starting my career over 12 years ago. The people and atmosphere here are very welcoming and warm. It’s amazing to be surrounded by so many bright and talented individuals who are driven in many different ways every single day. Conversant has a great culture of giving back, celebrating wins and recognizing those that have gone above and beyond in their roles. Not only do I feel valued as an individual here, but I feel the work that I produced is valued and multiple levels.

    Cons

    There is very little that I see as a negative here. There are obstacles that you have to overcome at any organization and found that most of the challenges I’ve faced here have been accomplished with few headaches along the way.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listing to your associates and their ideas.

    Pros

    Rock solid team dynamic without the onerous "2nd family" cultural immersion; supportive colleagues & management; running very strong on new product starts; excellent project managers .

    Cons

    Marketing delivery is not very inspiring work. The place is slowly devolving into a preschool of apprentices and new grads.

    Advice to Management

    Assert your independence from Epsilon. They will poison you slowly if you let them.
