    I have been working at Ovative/group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Hands on, relatively flat leadership structure that genuinely cares about cultivating great culture and employee well being. They only hire top-tier talent which is fantastic because you don't have to really worry about "weak links" to drag down projects and there is a lot of opportunity to learn from smart people with varying backgrounds and talents. Growth vision is energizing without being overwhelming because leadership invests (or has the open mind to consider investing) in whatever is needed to move business forward.

    Cons

    The company is growing really fast, which is a major positive, but is sometimes playing catch up in areas of tools and processes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay true to the company that your employees signed up to work at!

    I have been working at Ovative/group

    Pros

    The internship program has just started to be developed, but it is incredible. Over the summer I learned so much about Digital Marketing; having started from knowing almost nothing, Ovative got me passionate not only about the field but also about the company. Amazing people. Fun work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Roles/tasks were a bit vague at times, but this can be a pro if you're up for raising the bar and taking on projects wherever help is needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep developing the intern program and onboarding; you're doing great so far!
