    I have been working at Situation Interactive full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A fun, young and growing company in the live entertainment space. The employees are very kind and for the most part hard working and innovative. Great perks such as free dunkin and often time comped tickets from clients. Management for the most part is super understanding and always has their doors open if needed.

    Cons

    Some office politics, and cliques. Pay and hours could be better, but it depends on the department you work in.

    Pros

    Damian and some of the senior staff are truly inspiring to watch! the client list is also very impressive! Innovative, sharp company. An excellent company culture!

    Cons

    Long working hours. Some weird politics. Senior managers are not always the best team managers but isn't that everywhere?

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Great place, great environment, awesome office vibe!

    I worked at Situation Interactive full-time

    Pros

    There are great clients to work on and has some amazing perks. Perks include free health care and getting tickets to all of the client's shows. I have made some great friends as everyone is around the same age.

    Cons

    There is clear Management favorites. These favorites normally get promoted fast and normally before they are ready. It is not like they are bad workers just that they could have used a few more months to a year before being ready to enhance to the next level. There have been non favorites who are great at their job but it takes a long time for them to get promoted.

    There have been bullies in the office and Management does nothing about it. Management does not want to manage or train their teams.

    Management does not micromanage however if one person makes a mistake and the client notices everyone who works on that client gets into trouble. Even though the only Manager is the Director.

    Long hours as every team is under staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs training. Most Managers do not know anything about managing.

    I have been working at Situation Interactive full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the directors are really excellent and look out for you. The workload fluctuates a lot, but everyone works hard to make sure it's fair. The perks are okay, but monthly happy hours are a total myth. We have not had one in the entire time I've worked here, unless it was a farewell.

    Cons

    People have an over-inflated view of themselves, and think their opinions need to be heard on every single item. Many people are not experienced enough for the titles they hold, and this does not always work in the company's favor.

    Advice to Management

    If you can curtail the egos, it'll be a better place.

    Pros

    Young creative team makes for fun working environment. HR does their best to keep a good culture, morale up and synergy going.

    Cons

    Creative team morale is to the floor, senior creatives have been let go by terrible CDs just to "clean up" after their own mistakes (overall shadiness from overrated CDs). Good talent leaves after they've been fed up by terrible upper management. Account Dept. seems to have more creative control than Creative Dept. President lacks real vision of what he wants. Sitch has made their name by catering to Broadway clients but Owner completely hates that industry yet cannot find a way to break away from it. They continue to thrive off acquiring cheap young talent. Don't let them low ball you if you truly believe you are worth more.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with everyone in general and compensate creatives what they deserve.

    Pros

    - Talented and fun employees
    - Clients include some of the biggest live shows in the world
    - Great location, comfortable office
    - Really great benefits
    - Free snacks provided for all

    Cons

    Difficult learning curve. When beginning work, there is not much time to get acquainted with the brands. You are throw into the deep end with minimal knowledge of the brands, and expected to perform.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more briefing time about your clients and brands.

    Pros

    Great people with a great work atmosphere. Also they have an amazing balcony view.

    Cons

    As an intern, I wanted to be occupied with things to do than have downtime.

    Advice to Management

    Have actual work that interns can be involved in rather than give somewhat futile tasks.

    Pros

    They come up with some cool innovative ideas. I learned some things, looks good on a resume to have been there.

    Cons

    They are unable to execute any of these ideas on time or within budget, therefore pissing off the client.
