I have been working at Enlighten full-time

Pros

The executive management is extremely approachable and treats everyone with respect, and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Employees are not micro-managed. There is none of the office politics you typically find at larger firms. The company has a wide-range of clients, so the work stays fresh and interesting from year-to-year. Company benefits are superior to what you'd find at Enlighten's competitors and the pay is commensurate with your job responsibilities. The physical office is open and well designed and is situated next to a woods just a few minutes from downtown Ann Arbor.

Cons

Enlighten is not much for on-the-job training, so expect to hit the ground running. That said, everyone at the company is quick to offer help or advice when asked. Also, as a work-for-hire company, revenues can fluctuate, which has resulted in modest trims to the workforce every few years.

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

    Pros

    Absolutely wonderful work-life balance; amazing benefits and unreal amount of paid time off. The culture is very casual and self-initiative based. Lots of collaborative meetings and brainstorming sessions.

    Cons

    Very horizontal company which proves difficult when trying to navigate the tough marketing-win waters. Definite silos of decision makers and no transparency on company vision or outlook for future.

    Advice to Management

    Be more out there! Interact and share the day to day issues with your team members and prove as leaders to the employees - - they're only as good as they're led to be!

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

    Pros

    I've worked at four agencies so far. Enlighten employees who execute the work are mostly outstanding. Managers are medium quality. This can be frustrating to the staff. Best agency so far for me in terms of staff wanting to do a top notch job for their clients. Want to stay here.

    Cons

    Managers are medium quality and probably overpaid. This can be frustrating to the staff.
    Passive not encouraging regarding innovation, despite big talk.
    Dysfunctionally siloed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what people say about work at other agencies. You have things to learn.
