    Pros

    -Icon really cares about their employees and you can tell that from day 1. They promote employee growth and strive to see their employees succeed.

    -I have experienced a great training process from the start. The first week they had a schedule for me of what I would be doing each day. I really appreciated this because I knew what to expect my first week.

    -The culture is amazing. They have walking challenges, bowling leagues, chili cook offs, Halloween costume, company picnic, and more. Its just great to be apart of a company that mixes fun with work.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep being involved with the employees and showing them appreciation. It really goes a long way! Icon is doing great in this regard.

    Pros

    Helpful and Understanding Managers that care about your development.
    Great Work Environment and Nice new Office Space

    Ups and downs of the jobs pace. Some days you can be slammed and some there's just not a lot going on.

    Advice to Management

    Have more managers/leaders running certain teams. There are big accounts that don't have enough leadership to run as it should.

    I have been working at Icon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    not many...

    middle managers seem to care and try, executives are just looking to point the finger

    Cons

    lots of new people with zero experienced asked to manage a lot of work with no guidance or training

    they then "ask" the new employees to post about their experience for the first 30 days.

    Would be interested to see their posts after 6-9 months, if they make it that far

    I worked at Icon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Entry Level position for people right out of college. Everyone in the shop is great, most people in the art department are great. Don't make friends here though, if they see you showing your real colors it will threaten the greyscale they are made out of and you will promise your own demise. If you want to succeed here keep to yourself and stay under the radar. Be a number not a person.

    Cons

    They cycle through employees like crazy; only a few stay long term and those are the very fake and cold people centering the business. They have a very strict "company culture" and if you don't fit the mold you will get fired. They will make your job increasingly impossible and find ways to push you out. They actually breeched a legality in my case and I plan on suing

    Advice to Management

    Unclench your anuses

Fantastic opportunity for stability and advancement for those with a solid work ethic. Icon has completed amazing brand implementation projects for many large corporations throughout the nation. Very happy to be part of such an amazing company.
