    I have been working at RedPeg Marketing full-time

    Pros

    RedPeg is a place where individualism is celebrated and you're given a lot of freedom to create your own path. I came into the agency with tons of ideas (some of them a little wacky) and I've felt support from leaders across the organization who have not only allowed me the creative freedom, but have helped me bring these ideas to life. This is definitely NOT a place where you feel bound by the status quo. There's a purposeful focus on innovation and growth, that's the biggest pro for me. Another bonus is that you get to be a part of an awesome community of talented people. Each of whom are committed to delivering the best work for clients and making RedPeg an awesome place to work. I've felt welcomed from day one and I've even made some friends who will likely turn out to be lifelong. Lastly, Redpeg is a place where you can be different. I cannot stress enough how rare a thing that is in the workplace. I don't feel any pressure to conform when I come into work, as a POC that speaks volumes. In fact, I enjoy participating in internal initiatives meant to celebrate the things that make me different, like ROC and WOR.

    Cons

    It will not be easy to truly thrive here if you are used to a rigid or slower paced job. Things move quickly, and change quickly and some people won't like that. The company tries it's best to be democratic but sometimes that puts too many cooks in the kitchen and slows decision making.

    I worked at RedPeg Marketing full-time

    Pros

    This company loves its employees! Every month there are multiple celibrations, happy hours (both in and out of the office) and occasional outings. Its kinda like working at a club med. Management keeps an open door policy and they stand by it. They also do their best to be transparent on where the company is with business and projections. That said don't let their fun and laid back approach fool you, they crank out some serious work and set high expectations of professionalism and work product. They give fair and adequate compensation to their employees and are constantly giving out small gifts/rewards/incentives.

    Cons

    There is a lot of talk about work life balance but they have not yet achieved this balance. The industry requires long hours and the office does too. Many times people are simply expected to give up entire weekends to meet project deadlines or work late into the evening multiple times a week.

    Pros

    Some good people work here and it can be nice atmosphere. Fun stuff and free stuff in the office. Work with big name accounts.

    Cons

    Hidden in plain sight that you must be with the in-crowd. Mostly male to get the decent gigs. The top levels don't see what the lower levels are doing or don't care. Some years see big turn overs.

    I have been working at RedPeg Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been at RedPeg for over a year now, and I couldn't be happier. Starting a year out of school in a job, one would expect to be given only grunt work, but that couldn't be more far off of what my experience has been like at this company. I've been able to work on really big accounts, and given ownership to take on tasks and responsibilities solo. My opinions, creativity, and work really is taken as an equal part of the greater team. My manager is amazing, and she really cares about my growth and development. Being in agency life, there's definitely a certain level of having to forge your own path, but the leadership at this organization helps guide you (if you take initiative). GREAT social events, happy hours, and outings to contribute to the "work hard, play hard" culture. "Women of RedPeg" has also helped in making social events have more purpose - in addition to being a great time! Dogs are often running around the office. Ability to start your own culture initiatives, and growth opportunities outside of your specific "role". There’s great travel opportunities, if you want it!

    Cons

    Certain level of gossipy-ness, but no more than a normal office environment. It is easy to stay out of the gossip, and it never interferes with work.

    RedPeg continually tries to improve the quality of life for its employees. They mean what they say and they genuinely care about making quality work paired with a culture you want to be a part of.

    Change is hard for a lot of companies. Although RedPeg is committed to changing for the better, sometimes it takes longer than you hoped to turn things around.

    Pros

    Great office, location, and corporate outings. The first 6 months were mediocre

    Cons

    After the 'honeymoon' phase you are left without direction and no clear day-to-day routine. If you like to put things together last minute, this is the place for you. Too much office drama, and cold shoulders paired with a significant lack of clarify from management. No clear path to progress professionally.

    Thanks for your candid feedback. We’re disappointed to hear that you feel there is a lack of clarity surrounding your role. Though advertising tends to be fast-paced in nature, we always want our employees to feel comfortable in their roles and confident in the tasks at hand. Our hope is that your monthly check-ins and feedback via our anonymous survey tool, TINYPulse, would help in this matter. However, if you feel comfortable, please reach out to our head of HR (either in person or anonymously through TINYPulse). She can help advise you on the best way to proceed and ensure your mentor is providing helpful advice.
