    Pros

    Everyone at RDI is friendly, helpful, and great to work with. Hard work is appreciated but sportsmanship and teamwork determine how you fare

    Cons

    For producers specifically, the workload trends high. Especially with the meetings you'll own and run, AND getting work done your days can get long.

    Advice to Management

    The PM/BM roles need clearer (better) definition and more support

    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.
