    Pros

    InnerWorkings is an incredible company with a startup feel to it. There is a tremendous amount of growth opportunity within the company. The best part about the items we produce is that they exist in everyday situations. The work balance is totally managable.

    Cons

    Some clients will be more demanding than others. Therefore, every job differs based upon the client.

    Advice to Management

    No advice.

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

    Pros

    The entire company does an excellent job of remaining team oriented and I always feel connected to the people working in different offices. One of the things I value the most is the mentoring that I get from those in the higher ranks. I know that I can go to any upper level management and ask any question. I'm never out of line for reaching out to someone who's far more senior than I. I always feel supported in my role and I know I can be completely candid with my manager and know they will always do anything in their power to help me grow in my career.

    Cons

    There really aren't any negatives. I've seen nothing but positivity and great growth since joining the team in February 2015. Anytime I've had an issue or a suggestion for improvement, I've simply stated my case and my manager typically trusts me to implement the change.

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

    Pros

    Great teammates, approachable and knowledgeable developers, and challenging but rewarding environment. I'm constantly pushing boundaries on my work, and I feel encouraged to do so. Very few days are the same.

    I would recommend this job for people who like hitting the ground running and don't need someone holding their hand all the time.

    Cons

    There is very little tolerance for incompetence or people who can't keep up. This is fine if you're a self-starter who can keep up the pace, but a lot of people are left behind. Unless a teammate steps up, there's little sense of mentorship.

    I would not recommend this job for people who need more time to get started and like more hands-on management styles.

    Advice to Management

    There's a difference between babying someone and letting them drown when you toss them into the deep end of the pool. Managers should undergo people/soft skill training and check in with their employees more. It shouldn't be all about results and the bottom line all the time. Make the time to mentor the employees who aren't performing the way you expect before you threaten them with a performance improvement plan.

    Pros

    Friendly team, good machines and work space. Decent paid time off and somewhat flexible. Great to grow and learn new skills.

    Cons

    Too quick turnarounds leading to poor teamwork cooperation. Poor compensation for amount of hours and volume of work. Mediocre benefits and expensive parking.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the organization and employees. Too much secrecy around the workplace.
