    Pros

    Great company doing great work for amazing clients that really make a difference. Good culture and growth opportunities for junior staff.

    Pros

    Doing good for non profits.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to come by with some managers not playing by the book.

    Advice to Management

    Takes concert and other items from vendors. Seems a tad shady.

      I worked at Russ Reid Company full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Strong reputation. Leader in many areas of nonprofit marketing and historically an innovative company. Competitive benefits package and many collegial competent colleagues.

      Cons

      Weak leadership. This agency never overcame the retirement of the founder who was a brilliant and kind man. Current leadership not in the same league.

      Advice to Management

      Hire a strong competent leader with the intellect and kindness of the founder.

      I worked at Russ Reid Company full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Smart and experienced employees, the best in the business (especially creative, digital and analytics teams.) Made great contacts during my time there.

      Cons

      Favoritism towards Christians and APU alumni. It's high school mean girls mentality- very clicky. And low pay for the hours they expect of you. They will work you to the bone.

      Advice to Management

      Stop laying off good, hardworking employees.
