    I have been working at RMD Advertising full-time

    Pros

    I've been here for 4 months and I've had all positive things happen to me. The staff is funny with a fun energy and I've already learned so much. My last job was too slow paced and boring. I had no room for growth and could leave at 4:30 pm every day because the work load was light. But here I am alway learning something new about the advertising food world. My work load is manageable but not out of control. I love the...

    Not a big fan of 80's music, more of a 90's office music type of person :) but they do play a variety of genres

    I worked at RMD Advertising full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learn what you don’t want in a culture. Learn what you are capable of before you burn out

    Cons

    Interns treated less than human Churn and burn agency where the client comes first no matter what Husband and wife fight in front of you No training 80 hour weeks Suspicious, hostile culture

    Advice to Management

    For prospective employees: there are good agencies in Columbus. This, unfortunately is not one of them. Do your homework and ask around before jumping into what appears like a fun, “like a family“ environment like this one because it’s not as advertised. For the owners: The way you’ve run your agency is hurting people. It’s also not proving profitable for you. Get a culture coach and listen to their honest feedback....

    I worked at RMD Advertising full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A paycheck. That's literally it.

    Cons

    This place was the beginning of my anxiety disorder. I still haven't recovered. The positive reviews on here were created by the daughters of the two managing partners. Sure, they treat you like family, but that also means all the BAD parts of family - making fun of appearances, gender, etc. (and the main person who does this is the supposed "HR" contact in the office, good luck getting any help), yelling at you, harassing...

    Advice to Management

    Stop filling your GlassDoor with lies and getting the negative reviews deleted... this is unfair for prospective employees. They deserve to see the truth.

    I have been working at RMD Advertising part-time

    Pros

    Constantly learning and growing through a weekly team book club, creative/ non-threatening atmosphere, the Managing Partners are willing to actually help you improve & love what you do, good office music, paid for company lunch every other Friday

    Cons

    Sometimes I wish the team size was a bit larger

    Advice to Management

    In an industry that's always on the move and constantly evolving, you guys do a great job of staying up with the times in a fun and trendy way :)

    I have been working at RMD Advertising part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I appreciate a company that works hard to make sure what they do - in words and in actions - are built on integrity. I have worked for RMD as a part-time freelancer for about 2 years and have only the utmost respect for this crazy hard-working group. Their clients love them which it makes really easy to work harder for them. The projects are fast and creative with RMD always pushing for the "right thing" to do in the...

    How about a new computer? Ok, seriously, nothing to report here - RMD has been around for a long time, who am I to criticize?

    Advice to Management

    Wow, 26 years and still going strong. Keep on keepin' on.

    I have been working at RMD Advertising part-time

    Pros

    Great energy working with the team, positive work environment, team building events, Mojo lunch Fridays (every other Friday where RMD provides a team lunch), motivational, dogs in the office (Yay!), and there are days where the clients' products are made in a recipe for a photoshoots- and at the end of the day, we get to taste-test them

    Cons

    The location isn't in the ideal spot for me

    Advice to Management

    RMD Advertising is a great, lively place to work. I enjoy coming in every day to the high energy music, the adorable office dogs, the valuable leadership and one-on-one mentoring Sue Reninger gives frequently, fun co-workers, and the creativity that occurs throughout the agency every single day. I also love any topic surrounding the food category, so when there are days I get to make and shoot a recipe using our clients'...

    I worked at RMD Advertising full-time

    Pros

    Dogs can come to the office sometimes.

    Cons

    Everything - seriously. I should have taken the clue from my interview when the owner - the wife - told me the other owner - her husband - often had angry outbursts at employees and would I be comfortable with that? Um, no??? So it happened once and I left. People, there are a lot of good agencies in town - run, run, run from this one and this very dysfunctional and strange husband-wife team.

    I worked at RMD Advertising for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not any that I can see

    Cons

    Completely unprofessional. Company has so much turnover there is no consistency . They all seem to be afraid of the owners who try to put on an outward appearance of a The Best People on Earth when it really appears to be Leona Helmsley & Atilla the Hun . Insults, almost emotional battery, low pay . Far more of an example of HOW NOT TO RUN AN AGENCY. There no Donny Deutsch

    Advice to Management

    Manage like humans don't pit people against each other, don't teach interns that they are less than people . Start treating your on airs better,anyone that knows RMD said NO

    Hard to think of any-

    Cons

    No lunch breaks, no positive reinforcement even if it is positive criticism-

    Advice to Management

    Give employees an hour lunch break, like all the other agencies do.
