        Approves of CEO

        I worked at Droga5 full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Smart people, used to be a truly wonderful company culture. Some of those perks are still there.

        Cons

        Grew too big too fast. No real infrastructure in place to help save it. Long hours and pressure to be the best. Wasn't always like this.

        Advice to Management

        Actually listen to what employees find important. Don't throw flashy events and happy hours at them. Raises, promotions, be involved in the day-to-day more so you can learn who deserves what.

        Pros

        Free beers on Thursdays Occasional parties Amazing creatives, and cool work

        Cons

        Extremely elitist, toxic culture consisting of socially awkward people who grew up with money, masquerading as cool kids. Definition of cut throat. Definition of dog eat dog. Definition of awful. The type of place where mediocrity thrives, and management is not shy about absolutely hating their jobs and projecting all the negative energy to anyone who will take it. Promotions are few and far between and a quick glance...
