    I have been working at Mitchell Communications Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Feeling appreciated on a daily basis for the work you do. My job has changed over the last 3 years a lot compared to what I was originally hired to do. To me, that is a good thing. The executive committee and senior leadership team has assisted me in developing a level of confidence in myself that I have never experienced at any other job. They also make me feel that my opinion is worth something and appreciate the...

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge at times, but this is true at any job. I never feel like I am in it alone. When help is needed, leadership has always stepped up and done what they can.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!!

    I worked at Mitchell Communications Group full-time

    Pros

    They’re nice to your face. Great place if to work if you don’t want a life outside of work and dream of being a work-a-holic. There’s a handful of decent, honest people but the rest are out to make sure they and they alone will come out on top.

    Cons

    Dishonest, two-faced, and manipulative management. Work life balance does not exist. Not sure management knows what a respectable culture actually looks like. Diversity is a dream, not a reality. Look elsewhere if you are starting your career, this place will give you the worst taste in your mouth for agency life.

    Advice to Management

    Be humble. Stop acting like you’re the end all be all to everything. The agency and the clients deserve better.

      I worked at Mitchell Communications Group

      Pros

      Lovely people overall Great opportunities Culture-centric

      Cons

      Not feeling heard Senior management heavy

      Advice to Management

      I enjoy my time here and learned a lot but there were times I did not feel as if I was heard especially when it came to people who would push and shove others to make themselves look good. I wanted to always have faith and trust in the executive leadership but it was difficult when most of the time I would only see them when bad news was being shared. Visit more with everyone! We all loved the stop ins by them!

      Pros

      Great company with a great culture. Good to its people and career opportunities are available for those willing to work hard and get engaged. Your opinions matter and you are listened to. Change occurs often but that is the business we are in. Our industry is constantly changing and you have to change with it or get left behind. Digital has changed our lives. You have to keep up and change with it. I love Mitchell's...

      Cons

      Location often stands in the way of Mitichell being viewed as a national player. But, the company competes at the highest levels. Just look at its client roster. Worklife balance has to be monitored, but company leaders walk the talk and support you.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you are doing! Be disruptive and change with the times.

      I worked at Mitchell Communications Group full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good first job. Hard working people. Exciting projects and top clients. I loved my bosses and made some friends here. My team was invested in me and really cared about my personal life and the work I was doing.

      Cons

      24/7 work culture. As a recent college grad, the pay was extremely low (as in, I could have made more money babysitting and worked less hours), but the experience was extremely valuable and helped me move on to other jobs. Mitchell has a good reputation in the area.

      I worked at Mitchell Communications Group

      Pros

      Many strong ties to Walmart.

      Cons

      Very insular. Not diverse. Very against non Christian, non White, non Walmart shoppers. Not creative or open minded. I could never recommend this agency as an employer or as a counselor in good faith.

      Advice to Management

      Realize there is a great big world outside of Arkansas.

      We appreciate your comment; however, we don't agree. Mitchell is full of team members who are open-minded and who think big! Our agency is made up of team members who have lived all over the world and we love the diversity that they bring to our organization and to our many clients.

        I have been working at Mitchell Communications Group

        Pros

        This is a good place to get started in your creative career. The pay isn't great, but you'll get a chance to do some good work for high level clients.

        Cons

        The pay isn't great and the hours can sometimes be daunting, but the atmosphere is positive. Not too many cons.

        Advice to Management

        My advice to management would be to really take stock in the employees you want to see grow and develop and nurture there talent.

        Pros

        Aren't any to be mentioned

        Cons

        They have some dishonest pay system that the more hours you work the lower your effective rate of pay is.

        Advice to Management

        I have been working at Mitchell Communications Group full-time

        Pros

        Nice office. Some nice people, the ones that don't act like it's a sorority.

        Cons

        Working here is like working in a cross between a trailer park and a sorority house. Management has no real life experience to tell the rest of us how to work. Management favors the guys. Sad Everyone is from Arkansas, boring. One token black person.

        Advice to Management

        Try to be less fake. Visit some other pr firms to get real perspective, enough to actually be a good adviser to clients. Not all of us want to act like you.
