    I worked at Eleven full-time

    Pros

    The people here are great and the founders and executives are transparent on the health of the agency. Really good snacks and fun things planned. Pretty great benefits and if you can manage to take time off, flex-time is in your favor.

    Cons

    Executive head at my department particularly plays favors. Rather than nurture and help where needed new decisions are dictated and likely throwing people off guard. Turn over is ridiculous.

    I worked at Eleven full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People were generally friendly. HR department is great - they make employees feel comfortable, informed, and welcome.

    Cons

    Creatives rule the roost. Everyday felt like a constant push and pull between creatives and the other depts, and it felt like you had to be manipulative or aggressive (internally) to get a job done.. There is also little investment in employee career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time in listening to your employees. There is great potential here, but there are egos in the way.

    I worked at Eleven full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some great people in some departments. Good Benefits

    Cons

    Lack of knowledge of all upper management what is really going on with their employees and each other.
    LOW pay. Gossip central. Greedy on Raises. Review process is a joke.
    Say they are a balance work/life company but make you work long hours for crappy pay because they won't hire more employee's to help in each department.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the silly things and pay people more money. That is what one wants anyway. Who cares if you can bring your dog to work and you have bands that play. Salary over play Eleven!!!!

    Pros

    Dogs are cool. Get to work with well-known clients. The people are really nice.

    Cons

    There is a lack of employment in certain departments, which leads to overworked employees. Those who are overworked, do not receive much recognition or reward.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of snacks, parties, and socials to pay employees more.

    I have been working at Eleven full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Agency culture is great... very flexible, lots of happy hours, snacks, socializing. Most of the people are good, nice people. Fast paced environment. Good benefits. The work is interesting, things are always happening. The new space is pretty nice, definitely makes it easier to interact with everyone.

    Cons

    Not a lot of career growth in my department. Agencies have a reputation of being cheap in the salary department... Have to say I agree - unorganized in the review/salary increase department... Questions to answers employees have often tend to be non-answers.

    Pros

    Eleven is a fantastic place to start your career. The benefits of working for a private agency and getting hands-on experience on multiple projects at a junior level will take you far in your career. Below is a list of my favorite things about it.

    - Cool office
    - Friendly environment that prides itself on working hard but playing hard
    - Smart people
    - Flexible time off
    - Great clients
    - Allow pets in the office
    - Promotes based on merit and not tenure

    Cons

    - Low ball salary increases after promotions
