I worked at SAY Media full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible schedule, relaxed office environment and friendly people. The company gives you as many other perks as it can afford to make up for the fact that it can't do much for your career.

Cons

Be careful if you accept a 'design' position in the 'studio' at Say. You will be used as a mindless tool and piece of human software for the sales department. You will work under talentless people with nothing to teach you and are entirely focused on deadlines. You will complain, your complaints will be heard, and then immediately disregarded. When working at Say you will quickly learn how the 'corporate game' works and what it's like to be a number in the system. If you're able to accept it for what it is, working there can be a decent day job before finding a real job/ career.

    I worked at SAY Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun culture.

    Innovative company with some very talented people. The product is very fun to pitch and you get to be very creative in your approach to making decks and building solutions for brands.

    Free lunch Friday..

    Cons

    I saw several people get laid off during my time at say. For a while it was weekly. Very sad for moral.

    Upper management was very baring, did not keep promises for growth opportunities.

    Constant change.

    Advice to Management

    Sure you know what's broken.

    I have been working at SAY Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All of the employees are extremely friendly and truly enjoy working with one another.
    It's refreshing to work for a company where managers take responsibility for their employees and everyone works hard to get the job done. No micromanaging! Amazing culture...it's great to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    Lots of changes happening, but for the better...

    Advice to Management

    Definitely keep the lines of communication open. Everyone should have an open door policy and be willing to share the good and the bad with employees. They'll appreciate the honesty in the end.
