      I have been working at POSSIBLE full-time

      Pros

      People are amazing, hard working, smart, organized, passionate, fun, dogs are allowed in the office, flexible working hours (where possible), training available, loads of snacks, coffee and great office space, cross office working is great on a couple of clients, lots of opportunities if you work it right and some great clients (if you get to work on them).

      Cons

      You are always expected to do the role above the role you are bought in to. Same issues as in any agency in regards to not having enough people to do the work. Everyone gets stretched, everyone has to cover to do work, or when people leave their role, as hiring takes a while, it has to be picked up by the team. If you are not outgoing or very driven there is a chance you may get forgotten and will stay on the same projects/work....

      Advice to Management

      Review problem areas frequently and implement the learnings. Show it. We like to see progress on issues. Ensure senior leadership have support/time to be involved in the office. Keep hiring awesome people. Hire more Talent/HR people to drive the rigor/scalability needed in an organization of your size. Keep going after different and exciting clients that can differentiate POSSIBLE from the other 'digital agencies' out...

      I worked at POSSIBLE full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Free coffee and sparkling water Building is nicely situated by many bus stops and decent shopping, restaurants

      Cons

      Total bro culture. Despite having Martha in a leadership position, the culture is terrible - it starts at the top levels and bleeds all the way down to the most junior employees. Leadership stopped alerting teams when people left, and shovels a ton of ambiguity around everything (agency strategy, goals, client pitches happening, clients lost, team restructures). Some guys are on the fast track for no reason (except the...

      Try to be more transparent with communication and consider digging deeper to understand those claims about that person in a leadership role.

      I worked at POSSIBLE full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great environment, awesome co workers, work was meaningful and made sense. The internship project was really fun to work on.

      Cons

      Maybe more life-work balance, but that wasn't the company fault.

      Advice to Management

      Delegate more work to lower level employees.

      Pros

      - everyone is so kind - engaged leadership team - strong culture-driven environment - FUN! - everyone cares about the work we do

      Focus on business cases to hiring in talent at market-competitive rates to keep skills acquisitions ahead of competing agencies

        Pros

        Well paid, a lot of benefices

        Cons

        Not a collaborative environment. People steal your ideas to make their own. Shut you off. Bad support from upper management (not existent in my situation). Poor work/life balance a 24/7 job.

        I have been working at POSSIBLE full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        The people are great and the hours (for a PM) are reasonable

        Cons

        The work is not consistent and I am always moving around from account to account. Hard to see room for growth.

        Advice to Management

        Be transparent in the health of the agency. We have had several rounds of layoffs within the past year and the lack of accountability in Senior Leadership makes for very poor team morale.
