    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 (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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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 (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.

    Pros

    Great place for learning
    People are the real asset of the company
    Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Upper management is really poor.
    Poor competence review don't expect a raise if you don't demand one.
    Visual speaks louder than competence.

    Advice to Management

    Review the Brazilian HR. They're really really don't do their jobs, they work hard but they don't focus on people.

    Pros

    People are friendly and welcoming. Good work-life balance and good workplace.

    Cons

    Company has changed a lot after it was acquired by the French group Publicis and it's been restructured since then. Salaries were frozen and several directors and engineers left the company due to the new rules imposed by Publicis. Moreover, Nurun has only one big customer in Quebec: the provincial Quebec government. It guarantees a big chunk of its revenue but it suffers once a new government is in charge or decides to audit projects in order to reduce costs.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get together with people at the ground level, specially those who are allocated at customers.
