    I worked at Krupp Kommunications for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed working and growing at Krupp for over three years. The environment was happy and the CEO was very helpful to all levels of staff.

    Cons

    I would like to have worked there longer!

    Advice to Management

    Management was always available for advice - might be smart to have at work-study for junior employees.

    I worked at Krupp Kommunications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Since there are so few employees, junior level employees are able to take on higher level positions and begin strategizing as an AC, AAE or AE. Employees are forced to take on higher responsibilities, so all in all, it is a great learning experience in a great neighborhood!

    Cons

    Higher up's never take responsibility for actions, often placing the blame on lower level employees or those who are not even on the accounts. They also over delegate responsibilities so that they themselves never have to work, or deem certain responsibilities as "below their pay grade." Aside from the major issues (terrible benefits, minimal PTO, long hours, bonuses under $100, minimum pay, refusing to approve overtime...

    Advice to Management

    Find your brand/niche. Stop selling yourselves as an "elevated living" company when you take on clients simply for money. Listen to employees and respect employees. Understand that there must remain a work/life balance. If the CEO and COO take off two weeks every other month, understand that its ok if an employee takes a sick day (because they are sick!). Also stop screaming Hi Hello Hey when you walk in - it is distracting...

    I worked at Krupp Kommunications full-time

    Pros

    Because of how understaffed the agency is, all employees including the entry level ones get huge amounts of responsibility so this is good for those who want industry experience to get it.

    Cons

    The owner is obnoxiously loud, fake and hung up on the past. Constantly brags about accomplishments from years ago without realizing how few the agency has had since. Walks in literally shouting everyday for attention as if she's a celebrity and staff are her fans and thinks screaming "HI HEY HOW ARE YOU HI!!!" to every single person in the office makes her seem like a "caring" leader when it really just shows her lack...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. Talk TO them, not AT them. Listen with an open mind.

    Pros

    Great office space, exciting accounts.

    Cons

    Must buy into the "Tony Robbins" mentality to succeed - and be prepared for a variety of "business philosophies" to be pushed on you.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees

    Pros

    This agency has a great team, full of smart people with a lot of energy. The clients are also great, a mix of industry types and really important leaders helping people live better lives. We are in the mix with a lot of innovators in their respective fields. It’s a chance to learn from them. It’s inspiring.

    Cons

    I don’t have anything that particularly comes to mind. Every workplace has issues, but here there was nothing really worth noting. Management treats everyone with respect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    I’ve been working at Krupp for several years and really love my job. Part of what I really like is that compared to other agencies where I’ve worked, Krupp offers an excellent opportunity showcase you talent if you are willing to put in the effort. In my time here, I’ve been able to introduce and implement new ideas that despite my not being a member of the senior leadership team were heard and became part of systems...

    Cons

    Being a smaller sized agency, sometimes you are called upon to help in areas that may not be your core competency. Sometimes it feels like we are spread thin, but I also understand that creates a great opportunity to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reward those who put in the time and hard work. Keep going after clients that you want that may not seem to be immediately easy to get as the firm has talent and know how to succeed in many ways.

    Cons

    Some of biggest PR projects or clients sometimes go to larger agencies that often are no more qualified than this firm. Owners sometime reward and try to hard to help those under achieving employees see their vision.

    Advice to Management

    Never stop focusing on learning and cultivating our team to seek greater levels of personal and business success. Hire Go-Getters!

The work is rewarding and there is a nice friendly family like environment. Work hours are reasonable and the team cares a lot about each other.

    Cons

    At times some of the smaller clients working to build their brands can be very passionate and close to their vision and become demanding. In a few cases managing expectations can take some fitness. But this seems to be also part of the industry in general. When clients are so mission driven like many of the Krupp clients are the focus on enhancing lives with innovation can be an all Consuming mission.

    Advice to Management

    As the company continues to grow don't change the focus on keeping a fun and friendly culture.
