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

    Pros

    They do provide decent benefits, laptop, etc.

    Cons

    it is a small company with offices in san diego and denver, they use sub contracted people for the heavy work, communications are hit or miss between teams, people

    Advice to Management

    I had faith in this agency when I started working here long ago, however It has eroded way since then and being embedded, recently an effort to re-organize to have better environment and processes was attempted, but I personally have not seen it to fruition. It seems hard for the long timers to adapt to new methods to actually better the company, instead.. its same old same old. As other reviews have pointed out, projects...

    Pros

    Benefits, dog friendly office, snacks.

    Cons

    Very little structure, boys club mentality, culture used to great but it has taken a nose dive into the great abyss of what-could-of-been. Would not recommend to anyone with serious career growth aspirations

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your middle to upper management before you drive the agency into the ground.

    Thanks for your feedback! We put a lot of time and effort into the culture here at DO and I would genuinely love to hear how we can make it better. If it seems like things have taken a turn for the worse please stop by and we can talk about what has changed. That goes for everything ...

    Pros

    The culture is amazing, the people are kind and helpful and supportive, and they really truly care about maintaining a work/life balance at all levels. They GAS.

    Cons

    No cons specific to DO. It's an agency, and with that comes sometimes long hours and crunches to get things done. This is not a con to me, but could be to someone else.

    I have been working at Digital Operative full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Awesome group of people who work here -The company is growing pretty fast so it's a great opportunity to really learn and evolve. -No micromanagement, which lets you be self-directed. Fast paced which some can see as a downside but it keeps it interesting and tests your abilities. -Able to have an input and be heard. Very rare do you get to offer ideas or solutions, where they are actually taken into consideration...

    Cons

    Not a lot of processes in place so people who are used to structure might not find a fit here. I see it as a pro because you become a crucial part of building out these processes with your own input.

  8. "Work-Life Harmony"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Digital Operative full-time

      Pros

      - Unlimited PTO - Growing company - Creative freedom - New office space - Standing desks - Pet-friendly - Snacks & bday parties - Fun & positive coworkers - Flexible WFH policy - Good clients (and free swag) - Reasonable hours & low stress

      Cons

      - Constantly evolving processes - Small project scopes or low budgets can limit the ability to innovate - Small subject-matter teams (pro & con - great opportunity for individualized attention yet can often feel like working in a silo)

      Advice to Management

      If you're somebody who is self-motivating, you will do great here. DO supports their team members' goals, and truly harnesses everyone's unique talents & abilities. There is a healthy mix of both introverts and extroverts, and the culture at DO supports and acknowledges everyone. With that being said, this place isn't best suited for anyone. The environment can be fast-paced and projects are planned with time...

      Keep up the good work! The amount of effort that goes in to making every employee's daily routine as smooth as possible does not go unnoticed.
