    I have been working at Launch Digital Marketing full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I have grown so much in a short period of time. People often say 6 months here is like 2 years else where. Now some people may look at that as a negative, but for me it has been an extreme positive. I have never learned so much so quickly, and I have also never have been given responsibility so quickly either. I am so proud to say I have risen to the challenges that were placed in front of me, and I have been acknowledged...

    Cons

    It has been a bit tough working for a public company and dealing with rumors. I think management does as good of a job as they can keeping us in the loop. I just think it would be a full time job trying to keep track of every media post out there about possible things happening to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is something that needs improvement. I feel like every department doesn't always communication and sometimes it feels a bit like a game of telephone when sharing information as well. I just think it is a symptom of growing so fast, and I don't think it is a huge problem, but something that needs attention.

    I have been working at Launch Digital Marketing full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Fun environment, there is always something going on. There's a lot of perks with a growing company and a booming area. I met a lot of interesting people here.

    Cons

    It was really a hit or a miss. In our region, a lot of good people left due to poor management or lack of management rather. They were willing to throw people under the bus to protect themselves. That's the least of their worries now with the recent buy out and talks of another acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    "Take care of the employees, and they will take care of your clients. " - Richard Branson. I think that was a huge focus initially, especially with providing great customer service to our clients. With all the acquisitions, we've shifted to focusing on the bottom line first.

    - Opportunity to grow - Worked with some very talented co-workers - Cool company events & holiday parties - Doing lots of cool things and opportunity to be part of that

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve and work harder to allow them to breath.

    I worked at Launch Digital Marketing

    Pros

    Sever amounts of alcohol, lots of parties

    Cons

    Are you a fresh new college graduate with crippling debt and looking for a below-average pay? Do you like alcohol and fraternizing with other young inexperienced individuals? Then this apply today. Get your 1-2 years of experience, then find a real job with real benefits that actually pays a somewhat average salary. It also doesn’t help that retirement vesting periods continuously change. While I was employed, it changed...

    I worked at Launch Digital Marketing full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - A team full of cool, creative people - Working Remotely

    Cons

    - Benefits are terrible, with very little PTO (and increases that only happen every two years) and 401k matching that you'll never actually be able to access (you have to work there for 6 years to keep it). - Salaries are severely below the industry average. It seems like their hiring policy depends on getting people straight out of college who don't know any better. - Little to no communication. They list "Transparency"...

    Advice to Management

    - Communicate more and actually be transparent. I don't understand why you can't let your employees in on what's going on, or that decisions are being made. - Pay a fair wage. You have some of the most talented and hard-working people in the business working for you, and you pay them next to nothing. It's absurd how little you're paying people who are being worked to death. There's a reason your Account Manager turnover...

    Pros

    The people are phenomenal. They're fun, smart, creative, and really hard working. Our culture cannot be duplicated and our results in the marketplace reflect that.

    Cons

    Our salaries could be higher.

    I worked at Launch Digital Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free food. 1 hour lunch.

    Cons

    You log 40 hours of work but realistically work 60. Very low pay considering Industry standard. High expectations and aren't provided the tools that are needed. When reaching out for help it takes alot of time to receive help and sometimes it's too late. Start up feel for a established company. Very clicky between co workers. Tenets written on the wall don't match how the company works.

    Advice to Management

    If employees need help you should listen. Many old habbits that higher ups won't change. Listen to the complaints.

    I have been working at Launch Digital Marketing full-time

    Pros

    I have been with Launch for about 1 year now. I am very happy here and look forward to many more enjoyable years. We work very hard here in a fast pace environment. There are stressful days but for the most part I love getting up in the morning to come to work. I recommend LDM to my friends and family. The bad reviews on Glassdoor scared me when I applied but I took the leap and do not have any of the problems that...

    Cons

    The pay could be a little better but I love where I am so I am willing to trade the increase in pay to be at a place like this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep learning from what the employees are saying and Launch will continue to grow.

    I have been working at Launch Digital Marketing full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great benefits (Insurance, 401k, gym, meals, snacks, PTO, sick leave, free parking, quarterly summits), motivated managers, fast-paced work, room to innovate, on the job training/learning, family culture, room to grow and move up, darn good people

    Cons

    Must be resourceful, ability to work with remote teams a huge plus (many of us work in other cities), learning curve for technology higher than average (it's a tech company!)

    Advice to Management

    Keep motivating your teams by explaining the "why" behind decisions and including them in big picture discussion!
