Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Soda fountain on site for employees.
Started as a great company and then lost its way.
Have spent a great deal on technology and infrastructure, so very dependable in that respect.

Cons

Management is too young to know what they are doing wrong. Ideas from employees are completely dismissed even if they are industry best practices. Client service managers are very young and in most case on their first job out of school so NO policy or procedures were ever setup or followed.

Advice to Management

Listen to your once trusted advisers. Get rid of the employees and management that are hold this company back, starting with the second in command. Lastly listen to what the industry professionals, clients, former employees and most important current employees are saying about the company and the lack of management.

    I worked at ThomasArts full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with and fun, yet hard working environment. Great holiday celebrations and everyone got involved.

    Cons

    They tended to go through periods of hiring and then layoffs. The office space was a bit bland for an ad agency compared to others.

    Advice to Management

    While it can be very hard in an ad agency environment, try to manage hiring and layoffs better.

    "More of a healthcare agency than an advertising agency."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Nice people.
    -Some talented creatives & account people. But not being used to their potential.
    -Family owned and oriented.
    -Growing fast.

    Cons

    -Growing too fast, so when they stumble (which they do) they have to do big layoffs.
    -Boring atmosphere, especially for an advertising agency.
    -Very conservative creative.
    -Layoffs are biased. Certain people who worked there for a long time should have been fired years ago but instead continue to stick around because of personal relationships.
    -Seems management tries to undercut other agencies with their pricing. Leads to low-quality work, and hurts relationships with other agencies.
    -One step away from strictly being a healthcare agency.
    -In-house production. Which although cheap, gives a very bland, low budget feel to their work.
    -Farmington is very disconnected from SLC.

    Advice to Management

    Promote a better and more fun work atmosphere. Drop in-house production and look elsewhere for production. Stop reorganizing departments. Pay more attention to creative.
