    I worked at InnerWorkings full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for InnerWorkings was a great job. The pay was good and the atmeosphere was good. Time off was average with the industry. Work was steady and there was always something to do.

    Cons

    There is a bit of micro-managing that was overwhelming. Training was not really there, hands on was the only way to learn. Management is too focused on numbers, which is not always the way to look at things.

    I have been working at InnerWorkings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Progressive company with good working business model and reputation. Large in scale with a global presence. It's nice to know you're a part of a global organization. Good work and life balance. The upper management is good and communicates well about company performance and its goals for growth.

    Cons

    As a Production Manager your experience will vary and is based on the client specific account you're working on and managing. My client is very difficult, and the account financials directly impact your own professional growth, annual reviews and merit raises regardless of how well InnerWorkings is doing financially. I've seen lots of turn-over throughout the years, and the company would rather let you go, then re-assign you to a better fitting opportunity to match your true skills.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management is good and communicates well to its staff on the company's financial performance, new accounts, achievements and its goals for future growth.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced and extensive range of products to know and buy for

    Cons

    Too much paperwork with each job (over 10 new per day) to do the intended job, but good experience. Just wish there was a better idea of where the account was and was going.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees know what is going on and where things need to be headed. Don't just leave them hanging and expect that they know when you haven't told anyone else.

    Pros

    This company cares for their employees. The management staff is exceptional and very supportive, they treat you as part of a team and you are valued.

    Cons

    I honestly have no complaints about the company. We were in a high stress situation but the management staff was very supportive and empathetic to what the team was experiencing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. All the management staff has been encouraging and supportive. I would still gladly work for the company if they had an account back in my area.
