    I have been working at Czarnowski full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    high pace life style if you have the right accounts. Travel when needed depending on clients. option to work remotely if needed

    Cons

    bit of a 'high school' atmosphere - depending on the office some (not all) management are very unprofessional mandatory week off for July 4th holiday - UNPAID. either use your PTO or take it unpaid. very minimal raise opportunities below average pay management once said they higher people right out of school so they don't have to pay them as much.

    Advice to Management

    give your employees some incentives to WANT to stay. Get rid of toxic employees that are allowed to do whatever they want with no repercussions.

    I worked at Czarnowski for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - cool looking office - supplies and tools to do the job were always readily available. never a want for anything if you just asked. - Lots of experienced people in the industry. Some really great talent. - quarterly fun events/outings for employees (although, moral was always very low)

    Cons

    - Management level could care less about whats going on. Shady stuff was looked the other way if clients were happy and money kept coming in. - No support for growth or encouragement for employees to succeed. - below average pay - And ever changing processes, templates and platforms for communicating and pushing work through the system with little oversight for accuracy. - little to no review of managers or feedback...

    Advice to Management

    company culture needs work from the top down. Consider the effects of the rapid expansion before the company collapse on itself.

    I have been working at Czarnowski full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Almost complete autonomy - from access/use of resources to making decisions impacting client success. If we didn't have it we would build or buy it. Anything to help the client succeed.

    Cons

    Little to no acknowledge of success. No support for personal needs/growth. Training lacking in helping employees succeed. And ever changing processes, templates and platforms for communicating and pushing work through the system with little oversight for accuracy. More likely to get thrown under the bus than provided support through difficult situations. Management's open disdain in dealing with employee needs.

    Advice to Management

    If you put forth half the effort in supporting and training employees as you do with meeting client needs, you'd easily have the culture back from just a few short years ago.

    Autonomy in developing and managing client programs. Bird's eye view of Fortune 500 Marketing Programs. Almost limitless upward mobility. Constant immersion in latest technology and live engagement practices.

    I have been working at Czarnowski full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Full time employees get decent benefits.

    Cons

    Low pay, sexism, sexual harrassment etc

    Advice to Management

    Cut the 1950's male chauvinistic attitudes out and promote the women who have the experience and skill and pay them what they deserve. Treat the shop and warehouse employees as well as you do the office managers... They're the ones killing themselves for this company. Managers need to keep their hands to themselves.

    I have been working at Czarnowski full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    One of the best in the industry. Ability to work with a variety of people with different backgrounds. If they like you, you will go far.

    Cons

    Lots of upper management politics. It is very hard to know whom you can trust. It's not always about working hard and clients liking you, it's about keeping secrets and knowing when to be truthful.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest.
