    Pros

    Great company - treats its employees very well, and everyone here is smart and helpful. Definitely a company teeming with expertise.

    Cons

    Team personalities vary. No two teams are the same, and not all are good fits for certain people. Otherwise, no major cons.

    Pros

    Only good thing about this company is the Salary.

    Cons

    Bad management, horrible work environment, hostile cold people, no formal training, informal training by co-workers who are given 0 motivation by higher ups to teach new people, no direct HR resolution media contacts with in the New York City office, no incentives to grow and succeed within the company, no work events, no sense of team comradery, worst 4 months ever.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate a formal training plan for New employees other than Facebook Blue Print, rebuild company structure by stressing the value of higher ups being supportive managers who give constructive criticism not just straight criticism, make employees actually happy To go to work by creating a happy warm work environment

    I worked at Resolution Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exposure to Fortune 100 brands
    Good vacation benefits with 1 week off between Christmas & New Years & Summer Fridays

    Cons

    Upward growth is an uphill battle. Promotions and salary increases are only considered after 1 year with very few exceptions.
    Office competition is real. And rough. Every man for himself kind of environment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so rigid about adhering to the 1-year timeline for promotions and raises. You're losing great talent because of this. Also, it wouldn't hurt to be a bit more humble. Remember where you came from.

    Pros

    Resolution Media is the best of both worlds - offering a learning ground for those who have little experience in media advertising but are eager to jump into the industry

    Cons

    Just like any typical ad agency, "cliques" are formed within client teams, which limits collaboration and the willingness to help out others.

    Pros

    Smart people working on industry leading platforms/projects. Lots of learning opportunities good for people early in their career.

    Cons

    If you don't have an office the rest of employees are practically sitting on top of each other. Can be a very poor work life balance with little thanks for all the hours/holidays/etc. Not much diversity in hires and a strong college vibe - great for some but not for those who don't fall within that clique.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify hires and work on the office space. Not everyone thrives in a loud, non stop socializing environment.

    Pros

    Fast, Dynamic Workplace with smart people that are passionate about the quality of their work. Agency is positioned well in the digital space for long term success.

    Cons

    Often accountability for things that we can't influence change in by being a product of a holding company. Direct client Business requires immediate attention.

    Advice to Management

    Culture supported by a clear vision is key to retaining the best talent.

    Pros

    Pros include overtime for entry-level employees, five summer Fridays, heathcare + benefits, and they help place you on another team if you lose your account.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to manage work-life balance and some workplace politics is present. Also may be hard to move up/get promoted if your account is scoped at a certain amount.
