    Pros

    Advertising is a fun industry to work in, and ad agencies are a fun group of businesses to work with. As a remote employee, you have some freedom to run your area as you see fit which is appealing.

    Cons

    Management is at odds with each other and there is no clear cut directive from the home office to sales people in the field. They tried to grow the business too quickly and it is now coming back to hurt them and their capital operations. Commissions got cut twice while I was there to the point of not being able to make ends meat. I think they used to be a great, forward thinking company, but they have gone downhill in the slumping economy. All of this is evidenced by the fact that they have had multiple layoffs over the past six months and are now down to a skeleton crew.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get along with each other and get on the same page. The in-fighting has to stop in order for the company to grow and have ONE objective.

    I worked at Do It Outdoors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    do it outdoors receives exciting RFP that you *might* momentarily be included within the creative discussion. Large office space

    Cons

    There is ZERO creative flow. The Experiential Marketing Management is not invested in the position which affects employee moral. Ownership is passive yet judgmental and are certainly not willing to support anything but sales efforts within the company. Furthermore, the two owners are continually at odds with each other.

    Clients receive sub-par marketing efforts as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the people that work for you. Increase salaries above 30K as a standard, even that sounds awful.
