I worked at True North Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Talented team, great work environment. Room for growth and career opportunities. Upper management always puts employees first.

Cons

Nothing unusually more than what a typical ad agency goes through. Sometimes a few growing pains.

    Pros

    Big clients. Foster a learning environment, where if you can learn quickly you'll be an effective contributer in no time. No annoying timesheets or "your performance review is basically based on hours worked".

    Cons

    Somewhat of a con... workers expected to do all the pushing themselves for advancement and salary growth. Not really a con, but it would have been nice to know that rewards don't just come to those work hard and effectively, but you have to be forward about wanting them too.

    Advice to Management

    Interface a little more with those doing the grunt work. Not that you have to micromanage or be "best friends", but the occasional real-time check in (rather than yearly performance review or the like) makes for a more engaged workplace.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.
    They will train/teach you what you need to know in order to get the work done
    The office environment overall is really fun and light , but they know how to get the work done.

    Cons

    It is definitely not 9-5. You will feel guilty for leaving at 5:30
    Pay is horrible and below market pay.

    Advice to Management

    the HR lady is not so great, hire another one! Listen to your employees and their needs.

    It is unfortunate to read someone say "pay is horrible" when our company makes every effort to be competitive in the marketplace through available research. Additionally True North has a highly loyal... More
