    I worked at Evoke Health full-time

    Pros

    A great company to work for. I really felt that the company genuinely cared for my professional growth and development during my time here. The employees and employee culture is amazing, so much so that I looked forward to going in to work. Through their benefits and staff events, EH really shows how much they appreciate their employees.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons at this time.

    I have been working at Evoke Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is above average for my field
    Direct supervisor is usually approachable
    Vacation time and other office perks are nice

    Cons

    So much required OT without the OT pay
    Office politics and finger pointing
    Too cliquey
    Low match 401(k)
    Sloppy copywriters
    Certain teams expect perfection, but do not give that in return

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people since so many are overworked, or pay double the salary.

    I worked at Evoke Health full-time

    Pros

    The pay was good.

    Cons

    Spiteful people and playground politics get in the way of being able to do any work. At least two discipline leads made the prospect of partnership impossible. Billed as a digital agency, but UX capability virtually non-existent.

    Pros

    Great work space, culture, and tons of room to grow

    Cons

    The fast paced nature of the pharmaceutical advertising industry makes it hard to stay positive. We should be making a difference and actually "Evoke Health" rather than push projects out the door in order to sustain a specific revenue each month that go to the CEO and their families. Overall, everyone should boycott the pharma industry and the ad agencies that support it. Pharma does more damage than good and makes enormous profits off the sick. Let's find a more natural reasonable approach to health and help patients be at peace.

    Advice to Management

    Look past the dollar

    Pros

    run like a company that knows how good companies run
    tangible commitment to people: yearly reviews, yearly salary increases, bonus pool for everyone, not just the upper management, mentorship program, open workspace, proudly diverse.
    truly digital, smart and creative.

    Cons

    growing pains of a small company that became a big company and is still growing fast. keeping up with staffing demands.

    Advice to Management

    keep channels of communication open and direct. keep doing what you're doing. stay focused on what you really want Evoke to be.

    Pros

    OK to manage your own time, nice office location.

    Cons

    Didn't have enough work to keep me busy, and so I only billed for short work days (as a contractor)...Although I asked for more work, and tried to learn about their clients while waiting, they said I was "too slow"...More likely because I suggested changes to copy that was grammatically incorrect, but couldn't be changed because it was "written in stone"

    Advice to Management

    What's your secret?
