    I have been working at InnerWorkings full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, lots of opportunities to explore new ideas, open door management, friendly employees.

    Cons

    Little to no upward mobility, completely focused on results and getting the job done by whatever means possible. Employees are like a revolving door, and the "culture" is that everyone's bonding over counting down the hours to leave.

    Advice to Management

    You're losing a lot of talented workers by failing to treat them as individuals.
    Nobody I know has any idea where the company is headed beyond the next quarter, and most feel undervalued. Set your sights beyond next month's bottom line, invest in your work force and grow up from that "start-up" mentality of making stuff up as you go along.

    "Business Analyst"

    I worked at InnerWorkings full-time

    Pros

    People are nice. CEO is great, friendly guy. Finance team is great.

    Cons

    Kind of a joke company. They promote the "create your own path" route but there really isn't any truth to that. Finance team is great, everyone is cool so if you are looking to join that team, it's a good group. HR just hides in the back and doesn't even know what's going on with the employees. They think it's not appropriate for people to have relationships with them but you are human resources...? You should get to know all of your employees. They only talk to people who will do something for their career or who is 'worth' their time.

    Pros

    There are zero pros. All pros are squashed by management.

    Cons

    All they care about is numbers. They don't care about employees or customers. They have no idea what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage. Treat employees and customers with respect. Employees and customers are what keeps you in business.

    Pros

    Nice culture, free fruit & beverages, great location.

    Cons

    Pay isn't comparable to other tech companies.

    Advice to Management

    Pay like other companies that hire for the same positions. Chicago is becoming one of the biggest Tech hubs in the country. In order to compete with other companies that are hiring, I would recommend increasing pay for current employees and new hires. The benefits of this company are good, but it could definitely be improved.

    Excellent co-workers. Managers and team leaders care and value you ! Able to work independently with accounts. Never worked for a company that truly cares for their employees. I look forward to coming into work everyday!

    Advice to Management
