Pros

Pay is alright and some big name clients hire icrossing as their agency. Stable work/life balance.

Cons

Politics. Analysts who get promoted talk their way up and take advantage of their relationships, all the while doing poor quality work and throwing their colleagues under the bus. Sniping at the analyst level.

    I have been working at iCrossing full-time

    Pros

    + The benefits are competitive.

    + The work/live balance is reasonable for an ad agency Your mileage may vary depending on the nature of the client assignment you are handling.

    Cons

    - Recurring job cuts and account losses at iCrossing have employees fearing for their jobs and questioning the future of the company. Key personnel are taking matters into their own hands and jumping ship, making iCrossing's environment even more unstable.

    - iCrossing senior management lacks direction and does not inspire confidence five months after the company's CEO was replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people, not disposable assets.

    Pros

    Great company to work for if you are a self-starter. The hierarchy isn't locked down so people lower in it can get noticed and advance. They also support you moving to different positions if you like and if it makes sense to the company. People are really nice, especially in the Chicago/Dallas and SF offices. No drama or politics. The hours aren't crazy like some other agencies. Just depends on the account you are on. iCrossing is getting more and more well known so they are getting bigger accounts as well

    Cons

    Still a little loose on how iCrossing does things. The iCrossing brand is still weak compared to other agencies, but it's getting better. There is disconnect between departments sometimes. Account Management teams are weak and are just glorified project managers. Need to do better at helping clients plan for and build their business vs. just executing projects.

    Advice to Management

    New CEO should help push things forward. Keep pushing to figure out what iCrossing does best and how that's different from the rest.
