Pros

Laid back compared to other agencies--for the most part, won't be overworked. Intelligent coworkers and great people. Open layout, so no cubicles.

Cons

No room for growth/no clear career paths. Lack of structure and communication meant job levels and titles weren't clearly defined. Reviews were minimal and pay was not competitive. Rarely saw anyone get promoted within... more often than not, people got hired above. High turnover rate, so there's a lack of culture.

Advice to Management

Please get your act together. A near-inverted triangle is not how a team should be built (at one point, we had three managers for four mid-level employees). Streamline reviews for both careers and at the end of projects, and learn to be more transparent--don't just talk about it.

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

    Pros

    Passionate, intelligent people who want results and get right to the point - this makes up the majority of the leadership that worked at Manifest when I was there.

    A merger with another agency had introduced a good deal of opportunity into the mix for those who are willing to battle the chaos and ambiguity that come with any merger of this size.

    Cons

    1) The merger with another large agency (which itself was still just getting settled in after a previous merger), had introduced quite a bit of chaos into the day-to-day, at the time of my departure.

    2) The agency world grows more competitive by the month. Clients continue to move work in-house. Agencies will need to continue to evolve to survive in the next decade, and Manifest is no exception.

    Advice to Management

    What is the agency focused on as revenue streams? What are its core competencies? Answers to these questions will pave the road ahead.

    I worked at Manifest Digital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The environment is built on "do what you can to make it better" - you are always given the opportunity to work "beyond your title"

    Cons

    There is a lot of change. Always a lot of change. Is it good or bad? Only time will tell.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a path, and stick with it.
