    I have been working at Iris full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    British born agency in new york with a great people focused culture. Very entrepreneurial spirit and positions itself as the agency underdog. Good work is recognized and rewarded and great ideas are celebrated. The place is filled with very likable, smart people - no ego's here. Great integration and work sharing across other global offices give iris a huge family feel. Global re-location is available. Great... location in NoHo/SoHo at Broadway Lafayette subway and dog friendly.

    Cons

    Like most agencies, work-life balance is an issue.

    I have been working at Iris full-time

    Pros

    great people, people really work hard and dig in as a team to get things done, challenging and rewarding work, detailed financial management to minimize downsides, tenured management team, work from home options and work life balance, good benefits, generous PTO

    Cons

    need more alignment on collective vision for the future and core offerings, projects are highly specialized so not turn-key or process driven

    I have been working at Iris full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, similar personalities and an attempt to bond with coworkers make up the environment. They do make the effort to listen to employees at times. Smaller environment allows for learning new skills, but you have to put in the extra work to do so outside of regular hours.

    Cons

    Over the past year work-life balance and the fun, scrappy environment has started to alter. There have been some bad hires that are still being held onto, and management is slow or blind to swift correction and action. The employees are usually overwork, which is expected. It's all about the numbers right now.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening more to the people that work there. Be willing to not hit the numbers you want in order to keep talent. Up your benefits and salaries to industry standards.
