    I have been working at Internet Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I've worked for a lot of digital marketing companies, and this has one of the best cultures I've worked at. People are very talented, and the work/clients are interesting. IMI is one of those places that you look forward going to work instead of rushing out at 5:00pm.

    Cons

    Sometimes I need to work long hours, but the management makes it worth it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Lets go IMI!

    I have been working at Internet Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited time off - the most genius accounting tactic for companies to save money! Some flexibility to work from home Super chill office hours (I don’t even know what they are!!) No accountability for slackers

    Cons

    IMI is a stain on a resume, and San Diego is too small for that. The company has had a tumultuous past and controversial management teams. Empty promises of change roll in every quarter, but things are not getting better, just a different kind of lame. More and more work, fewer and fewer employees, less and less resources. Add some obvious favoritism from management, and you have a pretty bad work environment. ...

    Pros

    Unlimited vacation, the culture and people are awesome. Everyone is knowledgeable and they know what they're doing. Plenty to learn from others. No shortage of clients.

    Cons

    They hire from outside instead of training current employees to move up. The people with most knowledge/experience are too swamped to train people below them.

    Advice to Management

    Make it your mission to give attention to everyone in the company, there will be less turnover. Not just group meetings, consistent 1:1's with everyone to really get to know them and learn what their goals are. So far the new management seems promising though.

    Pros

    As a 5+ year vet with IMI, it's been amazing to see the agency grow from a small office of just ~20 people to a team of 80+ hardworking, educated humans. I'd like to thank the CEO Brandon for always ensuring a collaborative workspace with like-minded individuals. It's been very refreshing to know that there's always going to be another person in the agency that you can learn and grow from and the chances you find your...

    Cons

    Resources may be tight at times, but I've realized this is the case with majority of agencies and it really just opens the door for you to grow professionaly as you learn to manage muliple accounts and budgets.

    I worked at Internet Marketing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working with this team. I had a lot of great experiences with the whole crew and loved how they had all of the biggest areas of focus for a digital agency. My experience prior was that a lot of agencies were good at one or two things. This agency seemed to be good at it all. They also gave me the opportunities to create my own growth paths when I applied my hard work. Other companies I've worked...

    Cons

    The quick paced environment of an agency isn't for everyone. Those craving routine and comfort may be easily spooked - if you want to be a part of a machine - go to a corporation. If you want to be a part of a revolution - join a forward thinking agency like IMI!

    Advice to Management

    Keep showing your TRUE colors - let people know how fiercely you care about them, the company, and the results you bring your clients. Don't be afraid to be effusive about why the business is special, and don't hold back on the communication hoping to get things to be "just right" - perfect is the enemy of progress.

    Pros

    Great client projects to work on, really great group of people that are respectful to each other, lunch and learns, breakfast Wednesdays, great learning environment to push your career achievements, open to hear suggestions for client strategies which is awesome.

    Cons

    Sometimes crazy reactive mode putting out fires, but hey, who doesn't like a challenge? That being said, some fires can be avoided if more proactive processes in place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging open door concept for feedback. Allow middle management to manage, mentor and set guidelines, goals instead of them being in weeds. Work on processes - maybe have a dedicated operations person overlook all processes and define for the company so everything flows better.

    Independence to do what you want, how you want Unlimited PTO

    Cons

    WORST of all, look at the "random" batch of January reviews that all have perfect ratings. How likely is it that all of these reviews happened within the same month or so, with perfect ratings, hardly anything bad to say. Looks like Brandon (who loves money over people) may have been encouraging some positive reviews after their Q4/Q1 issues. - They have annual layoffs ever December - They've had 20+ people either...
