    I have been working at Integer Group full-time

    Pros

    Big, global clients and opportunities to learn and grow in a nurturing environment. There's so many client and new business opportunities if you raise your hand and get involved. These clients demand the best, and there's no room for those who don't contribute to the max.

    Cons

    Challenging to manage time zones and meetings. Tough, demanding clients where you have to bring your A game every day. Unlike other agencies, there's no place to hide.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more top-down communication. Making people work hard to understand what's happening and what opportunities exist could be improved.

    Pros

    people, culture, working on big brands, training

    Cons

    the company seems to be going through an identity crisis. Not sure what they specialize in and felt like they would do anything the client asked

    Pros

    Definitely treat you like a family. The job is what you make of it. They definitely understand work life balance. You definitely have the ear of upper management.

    Cons

    Account can sometimes drive the account a bit too much. Job security isn't as good as it used to be. Internal promotions are hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Keep seeing the value you of those putting in the time and effort.

    Pros

    - Work/life balance
    - Get to learn the ins and outs of Shopper Marketing, an area that you don't learn about in school. Having an understanding of this world will help you in the long run.
    - Kind, caring co-workers
    - Easy commute from Denver
    - Countless opportunities to step up to the plate and show your worth

    Cons

    - Organization and learning opportunities vary by team... if you're on a 'good' team you'll learn a lot. If you're not, you may get frustrated
    - Onboarding is more like learning through osmosis. Stick with it though, you'll learn a lot!
    - If you suggest changes and optimizations, you may feel like you're shouting into the void

    Advice to Management

    There are some people at the top that are dinosaurs and are not helping to move the work forward at all... how are they still there? Clean house and only keep people that are willing and able to work hard.

    Work/life balance (all ad agencies are like this though)

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to work on well-known brands and be part of some high-profile work. Integer does a great job attracting the right talent regarding both skills and personality type. Every day is a challenge and working with a diverse team and clients makes it fun to come to work each day.

    Cons

    As with any large organization, there is a lot of bureaucracy and red tape which often got in the way of delivering great work in a timely manner. The organization is very hierarchical and top heavy, which is an impediment to those seeking rapid career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focus on putting employees first. Look for ways to be flexible and quicker to adapt to industry changes.

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers
    Work hard, play hard mentality

    Cons

    TERRIBLE upper leadership team loves to micromanage everyone and push people out who don’t fit in with the politics. Never in my life have I ever worked for a company with as much favoritism as this one. I’ve seen talented people be forced to quit solely because someone in upper leadership didn’t like that they challenged an opinion. Layoffs continue to occur and upper management refuses to acknowledge that they are the ones running the place into the ground.

    Advice to Management

    You are supposed to inspire your employees, not discourage them. So many have put years of blood, sweat and tears into this company and you lay them off after 2 decades without a second thought in order to protect your precious salaries. Shame on you.

    Pros

    Work-life balance. If you want to see a place where nobody is left at 5:01pm, this is it.

    Cons

    Management is lost and out of touch, with no plan. Old agency, old model, old people at the top scared to make changes for fear of losing their cushy jobs. Clients walking out the door. It's like watching a train wreck in progress. The work sucks too.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Or wait till Omnicom cleans house and fires you all.
