    I worked at Levelwing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are friendly and genuinely care about their work. The environment is relaxed even though the work at times is demanding. The benefits are good and there is flexibility in work hours and working from home when you need to. There are opportunities to be social with colleagues outside of work if that is important to you.

    Cons

    The work can be demanding but to some degree that is probably the nature of the industry. While there are efforts to foster open communication, sometimes things get lost along the way. Opportunities for advancement are not always clear.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make the environment open and collaborative. Communicate with employees what the opportunities are for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    I know you are distracted by shiny objects and your own personal wealth attainment, but I promise you, if you invest in your people more, and invest less in material possession, it will pay dividends you can only dream of.

    I worked at Levelwing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Not bad if you have 0-2 years experience and are interested in learning more about marketing and data/analytics. Most of the employees are nice.

    Cons

    Upper management, when I was there, was quite poor. Generally, lacked a pulse on the company and just saw most employees as numbers. The long term vision was lacking and client appeasement was #1, at any cost, which created an unsustainable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your employees long term growth. Your client's needs can't trump your employees needs if you'd like to keep people around.

    Pros

    The staff is all very friendly and approachable. You'll make friends here, and coming to work is fun. The job itself, once you learn what you're doing, it's enjoyable. Management believes in what happens outside the office is important, so there's great vacation time, and benefits are also good. The office culture is a huge plus. The Levelwing team has worked very hard to make coming to work exciting. They have annual...

    Cons

    Communication could be better. The on boarding process is a little rocky. If you have zero experience in the role (Display or Paid Search), you may struggle, as there are so many nuances to not only the UI's you'll use, but the software. A lot of times you may not have questions because you simply don't know you have them - there's just so much to learn. This makes the job hard. Always be open and transparent in this...

    Advice to Management

    Continue taking advice and feedback to improve on boarding new employees or hire people who have backgrounds in digital media - it makes transitions easier.

    Pros

    You learn a lot about the industry, learn a multitude of skills, helps prepare you for future career path.

    Cons

    Management is a mess with conflicting ideologies. They think they are better than they are and do not treat their employees with respect or pay them well. Supervisors are rarely available and do not provide proper direction or training, setting employees up for failure.

    Advice to Management

    Help train employees instead or just setting them out in the wild with no one checking over or helping employees improve. Have management take on more of an actual management role as opposed to getting paid more and never being around. Also, the CEO needs to understand his business and employees more. He is too petty, self centered and does not relate nor does he care about his employees.

    Pros

    Great team environment. Relationships between coworkers are great in and out of the office. You learn a lot.

    Cons

    Management is a mess. I always felt like I didn't know what my supervisor wanted no matter what questions I asked. Pay isn't very good.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with your employees and give them a chance to enact performance improvement plans instead of giving them to the employee and then letting them go before they have a chance to do anything. Also, don't fire someone directly after they disclose a disability to you. It's suspicious and disheartening.

    I worked at Levelwing full-time

    Pros

    Learning opportunities and growth in your field is great! Upper management usually approves the opportunity to learn other channels or parts of the business, as long as you still get your normal day-to-day work done.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. It is expensive to live in Charleston/Mount Pleasant area.

    Advice to Management

    To have less turnover, make sure that employees are paid well and financially feel appreciated. Charleston is becoming more and more expensive to live in, and pay does not reflect that change. The camaraderie between coworkers is really awesome, both in and outside of the office. The small company/office feel is a great one with an open layout that allows for lots of open communication.
