    I worked at Red Door Interactive (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - If your goal is to surround yourself with smart people, Red Door is a great place to start or accelerate your marketing career. While a few years in an agency environment may give you gray hair, the amount of knowledge and experience you'll gain will put you years ahead of your in-house marketing contemporaries.
    - Very cool office location in the heart of San Diego's East Village. If you live in or are moving to central San Diego, not having a freeway commute is a huge perk.
    - Red Door lives and breathes the 100% Jerk Free core value, meaning clients, vendors and employees who act like jerks get shown the door-- no matter who you are or how much you're willing to pay.

    Cons

    - There's an experience gap between most new hires who are extremely green and the Director/VP-level-- Maybe this is just an agency thing, but employees with 5-8 years of professional experience don't seem to stick around.
    - Most departments struggle to implement processes that take hold and provide long-term efficiencies. However, that's not for a lack of trying; there are always new processes and trainings being rolled out that simply don't take hold.
    - The purposefully blurred lines between business strategy, account management and business development creates a confusing environment for account people, project managers and clients.

    Advice to Management

    Get an anonymous suggestion box. Exit interviews shouldn't provide the only employee feedback that actually affects change.

    Pros

    Atmosphere is generally positive day-to-day. Most people make an effort to be pleasant.

    Cons

    Its mostly a marketing shop - not a web shop. Don't be fooled. Owner does NOT understand the web. He does however understand and is ONLY interested in client services. Therefore to have to work through horribly clueless account executives to get anything done. Virtually impossible to do good design work.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front about what you do as a company

    Pros

    Red Door is a great environment to work in. Not only are the people great but the clients and the atmosphere are fun as well. There is a huge opportunity to grow and gain an understanding of online marketing.

    Cons

    One downside to red door is that it is an environment that fosters growth of individuals so quickly that often times people leverage that experience to take on a higher position elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage people to grow by truly rewarding your best. I know most people at the company are good but that should not hold back those who are great. If there is a Peyton Manning on a team make it known rather than hiding their growth in fear of others potential jealousy.
