    I worked at Lunchbox full-time

    Pros

    Lunchbox has a fun atmosphere and culture, fun people to work with and fun work to work on

    Cons

    The management was changing when I was there which made moving up a hard thing to do. Not the best benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Give fair treatment to all employees especially in all regional offices. Saw certain people move up that did not deserve to while others who did were sidelined.

    I worked at Lunchbox full-time

    Pros

    Great culture and the people are awesome. There are a lot of talented people here

    Cons

    Little to no room for growth internally. Seems like no one cares about hiring from within or maintaining that.

    Advice to Management

    Make the people feel like they are worth it. That is why there has been a mass exodus. People dont feel appreciated.

    Pros

    Nice coworkers to spend time with every day.

    Cons

    Management/leadership. Too many people with different ideas on how process, client work, etc. should go. Employees are rarely encouraged, appreciated or complimented to drive success and growth.

    Advice to Management

    Support and encourage your employees, don't consistently break them down.

    I worked at Lunchbox full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a few good folks who get tricked into working here, so you have people to commiserate with over the terrible management and poor work. Generally the hours aren't that bad- due to all the work being exactly the same.

    Cons

    First and foremost, the work is bad. You'll peak after 2 months of working here, because that's all the time it takes to learn the process of the repetitive, mediocre work that's done. Second, management is terrible- up to the highest ranking person. No support, and no talent to learn from. Just stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Take some accountability for the work- we're all in this together, so act like it.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good holidays, flexible work schedule and laid back atmosphere

    Cons

    Lacking in operations training with changing systems. Raises given based on high turnover in an attempt to keep employees, instead of acknowledgement of a job well done. Very high turnover resulting in the folks on the bottom of the totem pole training high-level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge those who stick it out through the storm with a good attitude. Give promised bonuses, don't just promise fluff in order to obtain employees when you're struggling to fill seats.

    Great company culture and cohesion within the smaller teams.

    Some oversight from management and retention of employees.

    Managers should motivate employees to succeed and keep good talent.

    Pros

    You can leave at 5 pm

    Cons

    If you are ok with mediocracy and not advancing in your personal enrichment and knowledge in your career, this is a great spot. You'll learn very quick (as all of the employees say unenthusiastically): "Welcome to Lunchbox..."

    I worked at Lunchbox full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lunchbox is a wonderful company. I truly believe in the products they offer and that they are impactful to brands, shoppers and retailers. That makes coming to work each day exciting.

    It's a very creative and collaborative agency that taught me everything there is to know about brainstorming and making crazy ideas come to life.

    Their client roster is great for your resume and you can build a career here if you are sharp, collaborative and can lighten up every so often. It's a fun place to work. Adam and Kevin truly care about people, their families and their well-being.

    Cons

    Working relationships and politics with partner agencies proved to be challenging. However, Lunchbox leadership always believed in their employees and would back them up if needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Lunchbox brand strong when working with other agencies.
