    The trek to New Brighton can be messy depending on where you live!

    I worked at Risdall Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Risdall marketing has a fun office environment with a dedicated/loyal staff. Smaller sized clients allows for working in many market silos.

    Cons

    2nd generation management is unexperienced and lacks vision. Leadership has been in the weeds for 2 over years.

    Advice to Management

    Hire gifted leadership team and LISTEN to them. A successful business is never run by one guy.

    Pros

    The pros all depend on who is on your team for a particular project. Talent, skills and experience vary widely among those with the same job title. Hook up with the right team, and things are rosy.

    Cons

    Several people there are not trustworthy. Watch your back, and make sure management knows what your contribution is because there are several who would be happy to take credit for your work. No structure. No performance reviews. Serious nepotism problem.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of people who do good work, not just those who schmooze you. If you can't manage direct deposit, at least put people's checks in envelopes rather than leaving them out on people's desks for the world to see.

    Pros

    The company is structured as if you work as an independent contractor. This can work to your advantage but also to your detriment when you need support. Best to learn to work solo. Free snacks/candy.

    Cons

    No reviews and or pay increases. No direct deposit. Timesheets disruptions - reminders twice a day - but I understand the reason.

    Advice to Management

    Keep aiming for the stars and improving the quality of work.

    Pros

    All the tools necessary are provided to do your work.

    Cons

    As a former employee on the creative side you have no control over the work gained or lost.

    Advice to Management

    The agency as a whole is excellent just needs to de-clutter.

    Pros

    You are your own boss at Risdall. Your job is truly to take care of the clients at every level. You will do as good or as bad as you set out to do.

    Cons

    Few benefits and no direct deposit. Keeping up with time sheet entry stress is rampant, but that is the cash flow so it should be.

    Advice to Management

    Regular performance reviews/compensation adjustments would be nice.
