    I worked at Pierce Promotions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This was a fast paced fun environment. Management worked with my skills and talents to find the right job for me. There were a lot of opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    While management fosters a work/life balance its hard with this type of work to not have to work nights and weekends.

    I worked at Pierce Promotions full-time

    Pros

    The best part about working at Pierce is the variety of different projects and the huge brands we work on, all from Portland, Maine! Senior management is very open and approachable about the business. Being a smaller company means that the team is much tighter.

    Cons

    Sometimes the days can be long with really big projects and crazy deadlines, but that comes and goes in phases.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the "doors" of communication open and keep mentoring and giving people opportunities to rise to the occasion and grow personally and professionally.


  5. "High Energy"

    Pros

    Colleagues- relationships, ability to help each other.

    Cons

    Growth was difficult at the time- was going through transition of new management for the agency as a hold. Understand this has worked itself out for the most part in the last few years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and have realistic expectations of staffs time. Miss the -work hard play hard philosophy agency once had.


  6. "Client Services"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    High energy environment. Dynamic learning. Access to Fortune 500 clients. Creativity encouraged and supported. Many flexible schedules supported (at least 15% of workforce). Not about when you are in your seat, but your contribution.

    Cons

    Small piece of a much larger organization. At times limiting flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course.

    I worked at Pierce Promotions full-time

    Pros

    When I worked for the company I was paid well. Decent new hire training program.

    Cons

    The company is not very well organized. A lot of turn over. Pay has decreased since I left. Promotion is often promised but never happens. Human resources staff were not well trained on standard employee relations. If you are looking for something to put on your resume it is a good start but I would try to look for other work as soon as possible.

    I worked at Pierce Promotions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Builds CS skills; reliable coworkers with common goals and excellent work ethics; good salary; generally a fun-filled work environment even during crunch times

    Cons

    Not always listened to (heard?) by upper management; high expectations without ability to ramp up staff to assist with programs

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your managers, recognize and praise their efforts, include all levels of staff in brainstorming and planning meetings
