    I have been working at Fingerpaint Marketing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a different kind of advertising agency. They actually practice what they preach and try and do things to keep their employees happy and engaged. Sabbaticals for everyone after 5 years, paid healthcare, flexible work environment. Generally nice people who are looking to do good work.

    Cons

    All the things that you would expect from Advertising. It can be a grind sometimes and client demands are what they are. If you are looking for an easy job with regular hours, you should think about a different career.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget to protect the culture. It's what makes the place special

    I worked at Fingerpaint Marketing full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A lot of good people, doing good work. Good benefits: -100% paid medical -student loan -free food for late nights Okay pay, depending on your level.

    Cons

    Specifically to the account service team: -long hours -no titles -the Executive Director of account service

    Advice to Management

    People first should mean employees first. Not just Parters, Executive Directors, and C-Suite people first. We don't have titles (a big con) but it's obvious that the "no egos/no titles" is not followed. Please remove people who are the problem.

    I have been working at Fingerpaint Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Medical for you and your family is paid. My peers are good people. Free snacks when available.

    Cons

    You’ll never see your family again. Your manager probably sucks. Low pay for non titled employees aka not management.

    Advice to Management

    Management is terrible. Someone please fix it. As the other review stated, there are clear problems that aren’t solved. In addition, another huge problem is the Partner who leads the office. He will say and do anything to make himself look good. He doesn’t actually care about his employees well-being or how the client treats us. He says he’s open and approachable but shoots down any idea and is condescending about...

    I have been working at Fingerpaint Marketing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Truly a people-first agency meaning that the people of Fingerpaint - across all of the offices - care as much about my success, their client's success and their peers success as they do their own. I'm working everyday with smart, dedicated talented folks with integrity and an unrelenting commitment to do what's best for our clients while actively engaging in efforts to make the world a better place. It feels good...

    Cons

    It's advertising. We've got clients that change their minds, change their timelines, and change their deliverables. As we continue to grow, it will be important to make sure that we've got processes in place to ensure that we can maintain the level of commitment, creativity and client service that we has differentiated Fingerpaint.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing - this "best kept secret in healthcare" won't be a secret for long. Continue to protect the culture as it is what is fueling the success.

    Pros

    It’s a culture of “yes”. Everyone roots for each other. Independent spirit allows for new ideas to be implemented quickly. Owner, Ed, is very dialed in to people and very generous, new perks come up all the time.

    Cons

    Recruiting is often a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency has gotten way better. Thank you! Keep looking for new and creative ways to recruit amazing talent to add to what we already have.

  7. "They have potential"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Fingerpaint Marketing

      Pros

      Overall great work environment. Without a doubt one of the best groups you could work with. Reasonable work hours. Onboarding is done really well.

      Cons

      Leadership isn’t present/leading enough. Management team needs management and time management training. Rare to keep top talent across the board because of the limited type of client work, office locations, and management teams lack of ability to develop individual skills as well as cohesive teams and interdepartmental teams/team processes. So much time wasted doing things wrong. But the potential is there. Small company...

      Pros

      There are places you work, and then there are places you love to work. Fingerpaint is the latter - a unique company where the people and culture are amazing. The Conshy office especially is awesome with great people and friends. The general manager is one of the best leaders I've ever worked for. He is inspiring and truly cares for his staff. He is also very funny and enjoyable to work with. His positivity definitely...

      I have been working at Fingerpaint Marketing full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Job after job I found myself miserable, with lacking culture & ethic in many small startup design businesses. I had to make a change, so I started looking to go bigger, more structured, and did a complete 180 on my career path. Joining Fingerpaint was the best choice I could have made for myself, and I have yet to be disappointed by this change (I highly doubt I will). You get a lot of opportunities to work on...

      Cons

      I did have to get used to agency hours, as this is my first agency experience, but it's really not that bad when you're never the only one left late in the office, and after-hours camaraderie is always nice. Leaving right at 5 is rare. Wouldn't hate the idea of a few more vacation days.
