I worked at InnerWorkings full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Excellent people in the office. A lot of freedom in the with little micromanaging. You can become successful if you have the right industry and are noticed in the office.

Cons

Too much growth on the sales side for production side to keep up with. Not enough support to close the big deals. Management is constantly on your back after a few months on the floor to close business when the print industry sales cycle is a long and arduous process - especially with big jobs.

Advice to Management

Not enough management to handle the influx of sales executives...need more to give good direction with smaller teams.

    Good IT and Production team.
    Senior Management know the business.
    Helpful HR team.

    Cons

    Senior accounting team should be booted out. They bring no value and are big hurdle in companies progress. Get someone who knows how to collaborate with other teams.

    Advice to Management

    You need to communicate better with other teams. And get rid of some senior accounting teams.
