    Pros

    Cons

    More of a comment. Flexibility is key. It’s important to have a willingness to really dive into the work that needs to be done and get creative and make changes as needed along the way.

    Do not work here

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    PTO and health benefits meet industry standards

    Cons

    A work environment with virtually no corporate culture where employees don’t interact with one another and day to day tasks are micromanaged down to the minute. You are a robot. A company that lacks structure and a long term vision where it matters most and presents few to no opportunities for upward advancement. You are expected to strictly adhere to decisions made by an incompetent management team. You can forget about anything resembling HR, performance reviews, career development, flexibility or basic human compassion here. The employee turnover is a direct result of this No open, direct communication. Things are unnecessarily confusing, intentionally ambiguous and always very last minute. All you need is a few minutes talking to management to see this. If you decide to move forward you’ll understand that management team is consumed by control tactics, mind games and power moves. Pettiness above all else. This trickles down to employees and creates toxicity. Office wide meetings are an opportunity for management to assert power, make passive aggressive comments and control your every move. This creates unnecessary tension and competition between departments and employees. This is corporate bureaucracy and clique mentality. The employee turnover speaks for itself. Don’t do it.

    Constantly Making Good Changes

    May 4, 2020 - Digital Production Specialist in Santa Barbara, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Great coworkers. Management vets hires VERY well. -Small company, which means you have to learn A LOT very quickly and there is potential for title changes and growth. -Benefits: Decent health insurance, 2 weeks vacation, CA sick time policy (3 days), healthy lunch provided, -Biggest pro is Julie! Not only is she the best manager I have EVER had, she is constantly pushing for good change and growth for the company and for you individually. All of the changes I saw in the 2 years were captained by her. More vacation and holiday pay, more communication, more trust in team members, less micromanaging, less meetings, an hour lunch, flexibility in work hours (arrive between 7:30-9, end 4:30-6)... There's more but I can't even remember all the changes, and I believe the owners want to continue making good changes for the team. **NOTE: E-learning has been quarantine-proof. Everyone is home and wanting to better themselves virtually. This is job security!

    Cons

    -Small company. Many people wear many hats and do a lot of things, but can be EXTREMELY stressful. (Honestly, I loved this part. My resume grew ten-fold from this position.) -There is a lot of responsibility on each person because you are the ONLY one doing your tasks. This can be very stressful, no matter how supportive your direct manager is. -You have to be very articulate and confident with questions you have for the owners. Luckily, there is management between the team and the owners now, but it's a small team. Having that confidence and conviction can be hard. -Very high turnover. People quit or get fired a lot more here than I have seen at any other company. -The team tends to be very young (age-wise). It may be because of the salary point and benefits or maybe because younger teams will do what you say and not question the workflow. (More so for Marketing than Production.) -No documented mission, vision, values. This really bothered me. I came from HR for a company that prided itself in it's company culture and I missed this A LOT. -That reminds me, there is no HR. If you have any complaints, I recommend you bring Julie in on it, no matter what team you are on. *NOTE: The Marketing team is MUCH different than the Production team I was on. From what I understand, DailyOM marketing is unlike most marketing. It is a lot of turning off/on Facebook ads with not a lot of room for creativity. *NOTE (2): All companies have their pros/cons. It's easy to see the cons when you're in it, but different place, different crap. I had ups and downs throughout my employment, but by the time I left I was genuinely sad to go.

    Stable company with a start-up mindset and mentality

    Pros

    Leadership is constantly working to improve the culture and investing in their employees and business. Very good at taking in feedback and responding relatively quickly. Highly communicative and friendly environment. Things move quickly and there are not a lot of unnecessary processes. The office is centrally located and provides great lunches, parking, and health care (all paid in full). They also seem to be very secure financially (profitable and without outside investors needed). Been here for almost one year and love coming in every day.

    Cons

    Like many small companies there isn't a lot of protocol. If you like to have processes for everything and all things "figured out", so you can just focus on your primary job, this place is probably not for you. If you like the idea of impacting and shaping a role and culture, there is that ability here. There is a lot of room for growth and an ability to make change, and change seems to happen quickly.

    If you're confident in your skills and incredibly assertive, you could have a great time here.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - You are given the freedom to research and develop different opportunities, but that time is not scheduled into your day. - The CEO (Scott) is an inspired entrepreneur, so if you are someone that has many ideas (particularly in analytics, coding, and technical innovation) you will probably have a great time with him. He is very knowledgable but sometimes getting that information from him is challenging. - The freedom and trust that you are given as a digital marketer is pretty great. If you are all about ad optimization then you will get to delve into that. - You are totally thrown into the deep-end, which I think is a fantastic way to become an exceptional digital marketer (but you might get some grey hairs from the stress). - If you back-up an idea with real-world data, you can get a lot done here (not data from the internet). - The digital set-up and their in-house tools are exceptional, and there is a ton of opportunity there if you like user interfaces and data management. - The respect in this company for digital marketing is exceptional, and they have great processes and technical know-how. - If you like to be entrepreneurial and innovative, and aren't afraid to work with large amounts of raw data (and know what you're solving with it), you are head strong about what you want to achieve, and you communicate that really clearly and assertively, I think you could have a great time at Daily OM. - I always felt excited in the mornings before work, and got great fulfillment from creating ads that I was proud of and that performed well. - If you are verbal enough about it, you can be recognized for your effort!

    Cons

    - No real way to plan your week or month, its all based on the previous days results. - Management choices are often little unusual within the digital marketing department, so try not to rely on them for guidance or support. Be your own person here. - You cannot separate work from life as their in-house marketing platform needs to be managed even on weekends from home (maybe about 10 mins-1 hour each day of the weekend depending on how many ads you're managing/testing). If you don't do this, your numbers will take a hit. - Check your co-workers work where possible especially if you do any analytics. Ads must be named correctly to get accurate data insights so you do that now or suffer down the road. Trust, but validate - no matter who's doing it. Everyone benefits from this. - Can be restrictive within marketing, and difficult to propose ideas surrounding organic and SEO, as the relation to revenue is indirect. - It can be hard to measure your own performance, but they might be changing that. When I was there there were no reviews or feedback which was honestly the biggest issue for me - with no feedback, there cannot be personal/professional growth. - Time off around Dec/Jan is a big no-no. - You will need to be an exceptionally strong communicator to do well here, if you have patience and understanding but are happy to reiterate your point in many different ways until you are heard, it will go far better. This can be exhausting for many people so bare that in mind.

    You're always learning something new

    Pros

    Working here was like getting a master class in how to reach millions of customers, seeing your work have a direct impact on a profitable, growing business. The founders put a lot of effort in hiring talented and nice co-workers and fostering a collaborative environment, and they do listen to feedback. They've been steadily improving both the working environment and benefits as the business has grown stronger. I learned 3 times as many useful skills here than at any other company I've worked for.

    Cons

    A company undergoing rapid growth isn't for everyone. People who prefer corporate bureaucracy or cliques over direct open communication and solving problems together would not be happy.

    -The employees are a very bright bunch- the owners have high standards and hire well -The office space is bright, airy and modern and is centrally located in lovely downtown Santa Barbara

    Cons

    -A healthy work/life balance is not a priority here -You are not awarded for impactful or excellent performance -Breaks are not encouraged -No benefits besides healthcare -Zero snacks -The owners are married and on some days seem to despise each other. None of my business, but it’s kind of a bummer and sets the vibe for the whole company

    Decent career transition, but not long-term

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You will probably learn a lot in a short amount of time here and will most likely work on projects that were not part of your original job description. If you are entry-level or looking for a transitionary job, this is a decent spot. You will have consistent work, exposure to other areas of the business, and will probably work with great people who care about the mission of the company. Free daily lunches are healthy and delicious. Healthcare is 100% covered by the company for individuals (you will have to pay if you have dependents, but it is reasonable). Work-life balance is okay because you are typically not expected to work after hours.

    Cons

    Small business culture is apparent. Almost every little decision runs through the CEO. Company uses several homegrown systems that are outdated and make reporting difficult. Development resources are limited, so requests for enhancements to homegrown systems or existing products must be carefully prioritized. Employee career development is not a priority here. You will be underpaid (if you do not speak up during salary negotiation), your title will be below market standards for your responsibilities, you will not have regular performance reviews or promotion opportunities, and you will not experience any flexibility with your schedule here. Taking breaks other than your designated lunch hour or 10-minute state-mandated break is frowned upon. Getting approval for any UNPAID time off beyond the allowed 10 days paid is very difficult. You will have to listen to background music all day that you do not choose (most of it is neutral but occasionally annoying and distracting). Expect to be micro-managed (most likely by the CEO directly) with little ownership over decisions related to your job. There is currently no formal HR oversight. You are also not permitted to request professional recommendations from others when you leave (only salary and job title can be disclosed by HR).
