I have been working at Carrot full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Carrot Creative is one of the best agency experiences I've ever had - the close-knit office culture makes you feel like you're all working toward a common goal and motivates you to show up and work hard everyday. Managers empower employees at all levels to contribute ideas and take responsibility for their execution; the result is that people aren't afraid to voice their opinions and there is a sense of deep investment in projects. To summarize: people here care. A lot.

Cons

For those used to a large traditional agency setting, they may be blind-sided by the fact that there isn't a place to hide out and coast here. It's a scrappy environment that expects a lot from everyone under its roof, but the flip side of that is that hard work is recognized and rewarded. Also, at times the office can feel a bit like a frat house when boys are throwing a football back and forth at 4 pm.

    I have been working at Carrot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazingly talented people that place an emphasis on teamwork and collaboration. Thriving fun, and genuine culture. Only take on client work that the company overall believes in. Care and attention given to any new hire to ensure they have the skill & can mesh well with the rest of the company. Passionate founders and executive team. Non corp vibe.

    Cons

    R Kelly on the carrot jukebox. Salaries can be more competitive.

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

    Pros

    Carrot fosters one of the most unique working (and playing) environments I ever have or will experience. The open office encourages spontaneous collaboration, the relaxed working environment enhances creativity, and the people working there create a culture like none other. You actually want to spend time with your coworkers, and look forward to hanging out with them at events, concerts, bars, parties, and roof decks. The level of personal and professional respect is unparalleled, and the quality and care of work that everyone produces is amazing. I couldn't imagine working anywhere else after being a part of the Carrot family.

    Cons

    The open and flexible environment requires that employees be able to manage their own working schedule and the lack of a rigid oversight structure could be detrimental to individuals that need guidance and direction for their work methods. Having access to an office keg, juke box, and kitchen can be distracting for people that need a focused and uninterrupted work space. If you aren't self reliant and self driven, you won't be able to thrive here.
