    I worked at The Agora Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At first Agora is a very young and "happening" company. The dresscode is relaxed, the management seems down to earth and helpful. Cool buildings, cool location, (minus the parking and breakins)

    Cons

    Management is completelty unorganized and untrusting. One or two of the smaller affiliates is constantly trying to keep up with the bigger, more successful, affiliates and makes a mess of it. Shady marketing tactics.

    Advice to Management

    The bigger affiliates are doing it right, cut your losses with the smaller ones.

    We recently revisited some of our old reviews and this one made us feel pretty good, actually. Mostly because we chose to ignore the reviewer's advice to "...cut your losses...." All of The Agora ... More

    Pros

    Flexibility in your work schedule and casual dress everyday you work. Young and energetic co-workers with room to move up. Also get opportunities to be creative.

    Cons

    A smaller company so there is only so far you can go. Doesn't provide advanced education reimbursement and you must train yourself on many things.

    Advice to Management

    Clarity please, we need more clear on our goals. Listen to the ideas of every employee, just because someone in the past had successful ideas doesn't mean they will work in the future and that others ideas will not work. Re-invent how we do things more often, just changing a products name will not always work.
