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

Pros

Really smart people. Work environment ok.

Cons

Pay not best. Corp management has no clue about the market the company is in and makes stupid decisions that hurt everyone.

Advice to Management

Spin it off and let it be it's own company run by folks who understand IT consulting.... Jacksonville is the company's biggest liability.

    Pros

    for basic experience, it will work

    Cons

    often no training, just thrown in and sink or swim. No feedback until you have/are in trouble. management would rather not know you exist, ie; they do not want problems

    Pros

    Great work life balance
    Good benefits
    decent salaries
    Open to new ideas

    Cons

    Owned by a huge staffing Corp. who knows nothing about agencies and cares nothing for the "art" of advertising and has little respect for creative.
    One Trick Pony--80% of business from one client
    HUGE turn-over. 31 people in 3 years. Most lay-offs.
    All upper management has no experience outside of IDEA. They have created a Frankenstein agency by making up new standards, reinventing wheels, and not understanding advertising, marketing, or branding.
    Creatives are all young know it all's who have minimal experience in other agencies. It's been called the "Lord of the Flies" department.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in people with agency experience. Adopt standard agency operating processes. Get a consultant. Understand your competitors and what you're up against
