    I worked at Russ Reid Company

    Pros

    * Powerhouse when it comes to direct mail for nonprofits * Some genuinely good coworkers who are passionate about their job and helping nonprofits * Awesome clients

    Cons

    * Machine. Lower levels get treated like workhorses while upper levels sit in meetings all day. * Management seems to value sucking up and over hard work and dedication. * If you're on the client services side of things, don't expect to be able to give much creative input. * Some poorly trained supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    * Allow lower levels to have some input in creative/planning meetings. * Don't just preach about work life balance, provide it. * Better qualified supervisors and leadership who are not just trying to prove themselves. * Listen more to the needs and desires of your clients instead of trying to shove the "Russ Reid" proven way down their throats.
