    I worked at POSSIBLE full-time (Less 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.

    I worked at POSSIBLE full-time

    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 (More than a year)

    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.

    I worked at POSSIBLE full-time

    Working with a passionate group of experienced eCommerce experts.

    Inter-agency conflicts, adversarial relationships among leadership, and missing corporate and leadership goals & objectives resulting in poor client service delivery.

    I worked at POSSIBLE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I feel very lucky to have worked at POSSIBLE.

    What POSSIBLE taught me is what I value most in a work environment: a transparent culture that listens. Their culture is one that truly puts people first, that has their back in both professional and personal life and that gives opportunities, pushing them further than they realized they could ever go.

    This place builds more than just great work—it builds the character that makes great people.

    Cons

    As with most places, sometimes the quieter voices are overshadowed.

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

    Pros

    -Cool vibe on the surface. Bars on every floor
    -Dog friendly office
    -Lax attendance policy/good for work-life balance

    Cons

    -Hemorrhaging talent. Resignations pouring in weekly
    -Employee training and career growth is not a priority. Very little investment in innovation and analytics. It's all about the sale and the profit.
    -Very small percentage of staff actually have the skills to execute.

    Advice to Management

    -Stop the bleeding. Listen to your employees about what qualities and skills they need in a leader
    -Teach conflict resolution. There is no situation that calls for staff to be screaming at one another in a conference room.
    -Be who you claim to be to your talent. Save the smoke and mirror effect for the clients
