    Pros

    Resolution Media has a great work culture and strives to unify teams even if its just once a month. Innovation is a large focus in the company and teams try to show that to the clients and nurture them into testing new strategies. There's plenty of learning/skill building opportunities and room for growth within the company.

    Cons

    Work life balance is pretty rough like any other company in the advertising/search industry or any industry for that matter.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to run Resolution Media the way you do. You have great people working for a great company.

    I worked at Resolution Media (More than a year)

    Pros

    Standard perks of working at a big marketing agency - happy hours, free stuff from clients, the opportunity to work on high-profile projects.

    Cons

    As with most agencies, it's hard to get significant bumps in pay or promotions from within the company - generally you go to a new agency for a higher position. This leads to poor motivation among employees, as well as a revolving door of people leaving and new people coming in. Lots of time spent training people, very few long relationships built. Resolution has terrible cronyism/favoritism among management as well, so if there is one "favorite" employee, they will see promotions at a ridiculous rate.
    Long hours for low pay - you get free stuff from clients like sunglasses and sneakers, but pay itself is very low.

    Advice to Management

    Get feedback from lower level people who create the deliverables and actually implement it. Ask employees what kind of things would encourage them to stay and do it, rather than just letting people jump ship and assume that they're replaceable.

    Pros

    Upper management is transparent and friendly, for the most part. Clear vision for company moving forward. Company parties are usually fun and this company is well-placed as one of the top digital marketing agencies out there.

    Cons

    Office is cliquey, but every office is until you meet the people you like. Training is lackluster and it doesn't always seem like you matter, no matter how hard you've worked.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the transparency going and check in on employee morale now and then.

    Pros

    Co-workers (coordinators) are great to work with! They were all very helpful.

    Cons

    One team in particular was very micro-managed by upper management and did not fairly compensate employees with additional assets that were used on the team that other members did not have.

    Advice to Management

    Do not micro-manage your teams. It does not work. Also, don't be bipolar. Being all chatty one day and then brushing off your employees the next day is not that great.

    Pros

    The work place is very fun, the teams are great and the company is growing really really fast!

    Cons

    The Managing Director is clearly the best person in the room at the job, but that doesn't translate into great leadership.

    I worked at Resolution Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Resolution Media provides a fun, collaborative work environment where you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. The Western region management team rewards tenacity for those who love all things performance media based.

    Cons

    Hard core, 24/7, always on workload - more a function of vertical though.

    Advice to Management

    continue to help employees focus on work/life balance
