    I have been working at InnerWorkings full-time

    Pros

    Laid-back, great co-workers, good pay.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost in the shuffle, lack of middle-management means upper management is overworked and this leads to inaction with man account.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more middle-managers on accounts and internally to improve client and employee relations.

    I worked at InnerWorkings full-time

    Pros

    Good exposure to clients when I was on site at the location. I enjoyed my closest coworkers and they were extremely intelligent.

    Cons

    poor upper management and it seemed like everyone was only out for themselves. little room for growth for an individual looking to grow within a company.

    Advice to Management

    Try and engage with the employees more so that they feel like they are being invested in otherwise you will not retain ambitious people looking to grow.

    I worked at InnerWorkings full-time

    Pros

    If you thrive in a corporate environment, then this is the place for you. It's a great place to work if you have enough to lose, show up on time everyday, have the ability to conduct yourself in a strictly professional way, are okay working in an environment that feels like a library half the time, and have an inherent understanding of how to climb the corporate ladder.

    Cons

    Just because you've been a loyal employee doesn't mean that you'll automatically get recognized for your efforts and be promoted. You hardly get any feedback on your performance or guidance for improvement. Personally, my attempts to take charge of my development or going above and beyond were not well received.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to the constituent employees of your department more often. Some of them may seem like they're losing engagement, but they more than likely have a reserve of untapped motivation. Spend some time with them(even if they don't reach out to you), figure out what brings them to work everyday, and exploit this knowledge; they'll thank you for it. Management seemed very impersonal and disengaged. For some, this means an absolute absence of micromanagement, which is attractive, but those that like guidance and constructive criticism will feel lost.

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

    Pros

    InnerWorkings is growing rapidly, so there are internal opportunities for self-starters. The culture is friendly, and there is some flexibility around scheduling.

    Cons

    Management has unrealistic expectations for employees, which leads to burnout and turnaround. Also, it seems that hard work is valued over skill/strategy, which is counterproductive.

    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.
