    Pros

    If you show that you're willing to learn and up for challenges, management will give you more responsibilities or try and help you grow. Unfortunately, it's mostly a sales/agency company so growth is still very limited. Mostly not micro-managed, management is pretty chill and fairly reasonable. Listens to good ideas and company is eager to pursue different opportunities to diversify revenue, and not afraid... to give something a shot to see how it pans out.

    Cons

    Management expects you to be responsive around the clock, since a lot of the business is international. Not a lot of growth Small company, ok benefits.. CEO kinda sucks, bit of an ass-hole sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing and pursuing different ideas, continue with fun offsites.

    Cons

    - Repetitiveness in daily job (probably most jobs though) - No 401k match (this should be a given) - No company equity (would be cool) - Forced "9 to 5" (sometimes you finish your daily work early)

    Advice to Management

    Motive is trying to bring a little bit of that frantic high-tech San Francisco style of company to laid-back So Cal and has succeeded in many ways, but also has its faults. The industry itself is fairly cutting edge, but we're not changing the world, there's no need to try to convince the staff that we're doing something greater during this short time we're here on earth. We're serving ads. Companies have served... ads long before us, and will long after we're gone, let's just have fun with it while we can! The best part about Motive is the collaboration and the people. Management does a great job at hiring, and if you are so lucky to get a job here, treasure it! You can make the job what you want, there's plenty of people who would rather come in, do their work and leave, which is fine, they get their 'stuff' done, but there's also those who enjoy working together, solving problems and using the shared spaces in the office to toss around new ideas. The new office spaces are very conducive for such a growing group of people. We spend so much time at work and management, especially the CEO, really tries to make Motive a place that you want to brag to your friends and family about, and I do!
