More Pros and Cons

  1. "I am home."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    - Kind people. The type of people that make work challenging, fun, and engaging. My team is extremely supportive and helps each other.
    - Fun activities. Floor events, holiday celebrations, department outings, etc.
    - Great place for career growth
    - Understanding leadership that puts Performics team members first
    - All c-suite members are approachable and friendly. They care immensely about our workplace.

    Cons

    - Not enough space. Please consider adding another floor. Only 1.5 floors is not enough for our growing company.
    - Pay is either average, or a little below the city average.
    - Promotions are unpredictable. Please make sure people that are going above and beyond are rewarded. Waiting for a promotional period makes sense financially, but doesn’t make sense in terms of employee retention.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the floorspace and make sure we have enough resources. We need cubicles and enough conference rooms.

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

    Pros

    - Thursday beer carts and Friday bagels/donuts
    - Ability to work cross channel if desired
    - There are a few managers who truly do care about your performance and are good people

    Cons

    - Clear gender discrimination when it comes to merit raises and promotions. There were 4 men who started after I did in the same position (less industry experience too), yet all of them were promoted a year before me. I asked for feedback regarding my delay in promotion and was only told that I was doing really well... doesn't make sense to me. I'm not the only woman to have this experience either.
    - High turnover rate. Ever since I've been here they do hiring and promotion freezes every calendar Q4, which means people jump ship at a rapid rate.
    - Diminishing perks. Every year the perks become less and less.
    - Performics is never the agency of record. You have to answer to other Publicis agencies and those relationships are usually rocky.

    Advice to Management

    Give women a chance. There's a clear "unconscious bias" here, yet every time this is brought to management's attention people are told not to compare themselves. Own the fact that men have a greater path to success and begin working on getting more women in executive positions. It's sad that there's only white men on the executive panels at All Hands each year, only to be told it's something you're "working on" each and every time.

    Pros

    I love working at Performics because of the community atmosphere and amazing benefits. I think it is a great place to begin a career.

    Cons

    I'm not sure how fluid the promotion process will be since the hierarchy of positions hasn't been made clear to me.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with.

    Cons

    The NYC office space is old, dirty, and outdated. NYC often feels like a stepchild since the main office is in Chicago.

    Advice to Management

    The NY office needs to be renovated like we've been promised for the past year. The legacy Performics and TV teams need to come together in a new, modern space with offices and conference rooms so it's not an embarrassment when reps and clients come in. Once the two teams are finally together, we can truly be the #onePFX that has been promoted throughout the year.

    I worked at Performics full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture: lots of events & food, monthly birthday cake, beer cart on Friday afternoon, fruit in the kitchen.
    Friendly co-workers.
    Good benefits (healthcare options).
    Flexible with schedule and possible work from home days.

    Cons

    Management. The only reason I left was for the lack of respect from 2 of the managers above me. It was not uncommon for the manager to walk by your desk at 5 pm and ask for something to be completed before leaving that day. I spent many nights at work late without warning. Management couldn't make decisions about projects, forcing all of the team to work at the last minute. Managers would call me at home after hours about work issues.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees time.

    Room for growth; multi-national company so opportunity to relocate.

    Pros

    Fast-paced, opportunity to take on significant responsibility, great people, great leadership team.

    Cons

    Company grew very quickly over past two years and as a result it was a mad dash to keep up with growth. Things are stabilizing as the new structures/resources are being put into place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep leaning into middle-level/junior talent for inputs on the future of the organization. Looking forward to seeing more women on this team!
