    I worked at Effective Spend full-time

    Pros

    I learned a LOT when I worked here. The management team is extremely invested in the training and onboarding process and dedicates substantial time to making sure new employees really understand best practices. Coworkers were very committed to their positions (maybe a little _too_ committed...?) and definitely enthusiastic about digital marketing in general. Pay was in line with the market average for Austin.

    Cons

    Like any marketing agency, don't expect to work 8-5 M-F. You'll likely need to spend time working during the evenings and weekends, but, again, that's pretty much par for the course when it comes to being at an agency.

    I have been working at Effective Spend full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    This is a really great place to work because not only will you learn a lot while here but there's great opportunity to advance/progress. After 3 years I can say the work itself is never boring, and you get to work with a range of different clients and know that what you're doing is having an impact on their success. I joined at Campaign Manager level and worked my way up to Account Manager where I'm now responsible...

    Cons

    Hard to think of cons so these are more warnings if you're going to join. You're certainly kept busy, which is also somewhat positive, but it means you really have to stay on top of your tasks and be organized. Performance expectations are high but it's been a key to the success so far. It can feel overwhelming sometimes but work with your manager and the rest of the support available to overcome this. After...

    I have been working at Effective Spend full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I am so grateful that my first full-time job in this industry has been with Effective Spend! There's so much to say about the amazing culture, my coworkers, and more but I'll try to keep this brief. My coworkers are always really willing to help me out if I have any questions or need guidance, which was especially true when I first started out. Even though we are broken up into teams, I have never felt as if I could only...

    Cons

    As true for any agency, work and client load can get overwhelming sometimes. On a personal level, you have to be very good (or get very good) at task management and time management, or else things will feel hectic.
