Approves of CEO

Pros

Some of the people are great, and some people I learned a ton from and still try to emulate. For a small agency, they have pretty good processes.

Cons

Some of the partners are awful - it takes a lot of time and finesse to be perceived well. The work is generally website maintenance, emails and banners. It's a an agency run by creatives, so that means PMs are often just running around at their beck and call rather than driving the projects.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great people, good work and decent work life balance. The team is full of dedicated people who sincerely care about doing good work for their clients.

    Cons

    No clear leadership or company vision. Leadership is incapable of providing praise. Micromanagement stifles any creative sparks within the project teams.

    Advice to Management

    Try being inspiring. Stop using personality as the basis for your decision making. You have talented people languishing because of your lack of leadership.
