    Pros

    Flexible hours, very structured company, free soda and coffee, nice location (Atlantic Station), nice office space, small agency feel, very collaborative, free breakfast on Thursdays, diverse, international company, allow dogs, casual dress.

    Cons

    Little to no training or orientation, no company culture whatsoever, everyone is a workaholic, "ok"clients, no creativity, not a "fun" agency, work hard/work harder culture, people are snotty, there's been 4-5 people who have quit in the last 3 months to new jobs. Just got acquired by Publicis so it'll be interesting to see how that merger works out.

    I have been working at Nurun full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You work with some really talented folks here, the office culture is pretty good and Hayes Valley is a nice area to work in (compared to downtown or by the ball park).

    Cons

    The management is pretty poor in general. It's really cliquey here too. There's not much in the way of career growth. There's a lot of people that have been there for a long time and many are questionable in terms of value or what they add. HR is pretty much non existent. There's little to no work life balance when it's pitch time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people from time to time, their opinions are valid.

    I have been working at Nurun full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance can be achieved here, if it's important to you. Nurun SF is full of talented, unique and inspiring individuals who work hard and play hard. The pay and benefits are comparable to other boutique agencies in SF.

    Cons

    A growing team from a small core group has certainly caused a few pains as senior employees get used to a larger group of coworkers and stricter standards that come with being acquired by a multi-national company. Little to no training, they throw you right in the ring. It's pretty sink or swim.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer opportunities for on the job education (many employees do not know of the $600 stipend for education/training each year) and foster an environment of growth and acceptance between senior and jr. employees.

    Pros

    Locally, the senior manager, work/life balance, dogs in the office

    Cons

    Lack of network communication, lack of consistency and commitment when it came to corporate vision, disjointed strategy

    Advice to Management

    Many organizations struggle with a challenged network. In order for a corporate DNA to take roots, the network has to work. Fix the network, and success will follow.

    Pros

    Good local leadership teams in some offices. Some very smart people in select positions. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    No real strategy for the company as a whole. Uninspiring corporate leadership. Flexible work schedules are an ongoing issue. Too much top-down management; corporate doesn't seem to see the value in basic strategic principles of leadership and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Changing the way you work, think and lead is critical if you want to succeed in the US market; otherwise the company will be continually beaten by the competition.

    I have been working at Nurun full-time

    Pros

    1- Social activities
    2- Attractive benefits

    Cons

    1- No training!
    2- Lack of excitement and belief in the quality of work being presented to the client
    3- No professionalism (conversations not suited for a workplace-> a bit disturbing!)
    4- The company does not invest in its employees' skill development
    5- It is hard to jump on new projects

    Advice to Management

    Honestly most of my co-workers are not happy with Nurun, I advise to:
    1- Create an on-boarding training: For the first 2 weeks I was walking around the office incognito, I was not introduced to anyone!
    2- Communicate with your team about rules, expectations etc. I only had 1 one-on-one meeting with my manager since I started.
    3- Have clear rules that apply to EVERYONE: don't ask your team to be in the office on time when you are 20 minutes late in the morning and leave work 30 minutes earlier than the official end-of-day.
    4- Fire your lazy managers who divert the heavy work from their teams because they are actually stopping the bright minds in their teams to shine.
    5- Put more emphasis on GOOD quality work: my manager would not care if there was an obviously mistake in the work about to be presented to the client. He just wanted to present on time, and then I would watch the client grill him with questions....
