      Pros

      • The people + culture. From day one, I’ve always felt supported by everyone here. The environment is the opposite of a “dog-eat-dog” agency culture. VPs are willing to get their hands dirty, leadership is approachable/not intimidating, and everyone is genuinely nice to each other. • Recognition. If you work hard and do quality work, you’re going to get recognized for it. Standards are high, but success and growth...

      Cons

      • Start-up mentality can sometimes cause headaches. There are plenty of times where you’ll have to do things that are outside of your job scope, and often there aren’t structured processes in place. If you’re looking for a structured environment, you probably won’t be happy here. • There are times where you’ll be insanely busy, and times where you have a very manageable workload. There’s a lot of fluctuation here due...

      I worked at Kelton full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      - Global, big brands with exposure to C-Suite clients - The mid-senior employees who work there are exceptional in terms of both intellectual output and personality - an absolute pleasure to work with and socialize with

      Cons

      The company is completed outdated in terms of culture and management. They peg themselves as a "creative" company, but having come from advertising - the working environment is anything but creative. Employees are unnaturally fearful of management and afraid at times to leave the office to grab a coffee with a coworker and run the risk of looking unproductive or uncommitted to the work. Those that succeed are...

      Advice to Management

      The vision is sounds - but Tom/Gareth need to pay greater attention to how their managers are implementing their vision within their departments and with their employees. It's not at all translating, and there is a palpable feeling of discomfort and dissatisfaction with most of the mid-senior level employees who are doing most of the work,
