I worked at McKinstry full-time

Pros

Very smart, industry-leading business model - integrated services and delivery.
Awesome CEO!
Great people - smart, committed, very hard working.
Uber-cool environment at Seattle hdqtrs - gym, deli, driving range (...!!!)
Committment to maintaining and enriching the culture as company grows and matures.

Cons

Tolerance of silos and siloed-behavior prevent full execution of strong business model.
Lack of standards and accountability result in inconsistent project execution; unpredictable margins.
Measurement and rewards don't reinforce strategic or tactical priorities.
Company struggles to embrace the organizational sophistication necessary for growth while preserving the best aspects of entreprenurial zeal.

Advice to Management

Define, communicate and reinforce process and performance standards!
Cultivate and reward "positive pragmatism."
Hire people to lead who have successful experience building organizational systems and processes in companies with similar growth trajectories.
Value, respect and support people with real management/leadership skills; give them scope to develop and don't micro-manage them.
Identify leaders early and nurture them - intentionally.

    Pros

    Excellent employer and a great environment. I have worked at companies that are big, small, start-up and established, public and private. McKinstry is by far the greatest place I've ever worked. As a woman I feel very respected and supported in a very diverse work enviornment. The company puts a lot of energy into hiring top talent and spends a lot of time refining ways in which to keep their top talent engaged.

    Cons

    Communication could be streamlined a bit better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, please work hard to keep our message relevant without changing the culture, which is awesome.
