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

    Pros

    -Agency size means there's a great network of people and resources at your disposal
    -Senior leadership is transparent and available
    -Lots of opportunities to work on the types of projects that interest you
    -Great place for young employees to grow

    Cons

    -Since it's shopper marketing, not the most glamorous agency work
    -Lots of work never gets produced, which is fairly typical of agencies
    -Location is in Lakewood, so there's a 15-30 minute commute from Denver

    Advice to Management

    Keep finding new ways to retain talent by fostering an inspiring work place.

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

    Pros

    Usually a pretty good family balance. It's tough to call a shopper agency a "creative shop" but there's been a recent shift that seems to be making that a priority. Lots of really good talented people here.

    Cons

    Shopper agency, so a good portion of the projects aren't the most exciting and can be tough to get creative on. Typical ad agency, but they also seem to wait to promote people until they threaten to quit. Also the raise structure is super weird – you're on a list of people with the same job title as you and you wait until you're at the top of the queue.

    Advice to Management

    Promote. Change the raise structure to be performance based. And continue to push good work and shoot for awards.

    I worked at Integer Group full-time

    Pros

    Nice downtown location with parking

    Cons

    Not an agency at all, but more of a cluster that can not accept what they are and what they will never become.

    Advice to Management

    They try to pretend they're a creative agency, but the reality is they are a sweat shop pretending to know great creative, cutting-edge strategy and what great work really is. In truth, they never won any awards that meant anything, and since I have left (of my own choice) everyone I interview with, kinda laughs hen I tell them I was an Integer creative. How often do you hear the Integer name at the Addys, DSVC or any nationally recognized creative publication? Never. Kinda says it all.

    I worked at Integer Group full-time

    Pros

    A lot of great people work there, and a lot of people stay there for many years. They do have some fun activities, and the management does try to be as transparent as they can. There are shops and restaurants very near by.

    Cons

    A lot of politics. They are kind of known for having lower salaries (balanced by fun activities). They just had a major restructuring. The "fun" atmosphere has slowly crept toward a more mundane place to work.

    Pros

    The company has great benefits and a lot of outings and parties

    Cons

    Inter-office politics are out of control, back-stabbing and out of touch upper management are everywhere. Bad employees don't get fired and good employees don't get recognized.

    I worked at Integer Group full-time

    Pros

    Integer does a great job of making you feel like family. Ive never worked at a place that truly cares for their employees the way that leadership here does. Fun environment, great culture. If you like working with a team in a positive and fun environment, this is the place

    Cons

    Lots of talk. Like I said abovery, leadership is great and makes you feel like they care, but they don't necessarily follow through and you know what they say about good intentions.
    Can be a bit of a sweat shop depending on the account. You don't feel like you have the right to push back on the client, which in turn requires long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through. Listen to your employees and course correct accordingly.
