No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

A global agency with serious marketing and experience strategy. Also, all the projects end up looking great because the visual and motion designers are so good. If your on project teams, there's a good chance you'll be able to travel to client sites or to collaborate with BR staff in other offices. Everyone is smart and has good people skills.

Cons

For the positions I've had, the pay was among the lowest I've encountered for similar companies.

Advice to Management

Provide more mentorship, training, growth opportunities for the staff.

    Pros

    Most people here are really great to work with. Interesting project work, high-profile clients.

    Cons

    Resource management is terrible - accounts are always fighting over people and you don't always have the right people available when you need them. Hiring freeze, salary freeze, purchasing freeze. Not good.

    I have been working at Blast Radius full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    + Great People
    + Good culture
    + Sabbatical program

    Cons

    - Lack of leadership and credible mentors
    - No raise in 3 years
    - Very bias leaders making bad decisions
    - Broken promises
    - High turnover of people but some good people here
    - Not a place to build your career, just a job
    - Lack of communication
    - Recruiting philosophy - wait, there's none
    - Tons of work, very little rewards

    Advice to Management

    Time to look at the deeper issues within the company and make some changes. There are many other smaller players in the industry who are building a great brand with amazing work to show for. Start to value your people rather than creating a terrible work environment in all locations. It's not just the West Coast who is suffering - it's a global issue.
