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

    Pros

    Kind folks doing great work with an exciting client base.

    Cons

    The new nature of the marketing business is constant change - Situation is no different. You have to be active in keeping up.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay true to your roots.

    Pros

    Great peoppe. Agency culture here is great and they do a lot of events for their staff. Nice perks.

    Cons

    They do not compensate their employees enough for the amount of work that is demanded. Structure of the agency needs work and they often are having conversations about improvements, but it takes a long while before any action is taken or difference is noticed by those below the VP or supervisor level. They need more staff to help distribute the work.

    I have been working at Situation full-time

    Pros

    Great environment for those passionate about theatre. Cool perks such as free Dunkin, museum reimbursements, and unlimited sick/WFH days.

    Cons

    Not enough knowledge of innovative tactics across the board. Clients are not diversified enough, so the work becomes mundane after awhile. Not enough diversity within the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Break the mold.

    I worked at Situation full-time

    Pros

    Location? Some nice people. Mostly dead eyed fools.

    Cons

    Build up juniors. Offer actionable feedback. Hire managers who know how to lead and not just delegate.

    Advice to Management

    Bring Bazadona down a couple notches. It's a low-rate ad agency.

    I have been working at Situation full-time

    Pros

    Situation offers fun perks - free tickets, office events, museum reimbursement, etc. - and has a collaborative, upbeat atmosphere. A recent restructure of the 'chain of command' has created clear growth paths, and seniors actively look for growth opportunities for their teams. Digital continues to expand (content development, live streaming, 360, wearables) and Situation never shies away from trying to bring a new idea to life.

    Cons

    "Following process" can be more like a guideline than a rule. If you like to follow very strict steps (and want others to follows those steps, too) to get things done, this might not be the right fit for you. If you enjoy starting with an idea and figuring things out along the way with teammates, this is your jam.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop middle management team and empower them to drive decisions for their departments and, as a group, for the agency.

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

    Pros

    The fast-paced, always evolving environment really gives employees ample opportunities to grow with the company, as long as you're ambitious and keep up with trends that arise.

    Cons

    Senior leadership isn't always on the same page, which makes it difficult to expect the rest of their teams to effectively collaborate and communicate.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example, and stick together as a united front.

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

    Pros

    A great dynamic digital agency, if you are keen to learn and grab an opportunity when it presents itself, then the sky is the limit at Situation. The leadership team are genuinely invested in the development of junior staff and that shows through in the culture and work. Nice mix of clients and verticals within the entertainment space, which lends itself to those who like a fast-paced changing environment where each day looks different.

    Cons

    Due to the fast growth of the agency and the types of clients, you need to be a self-starter and be able to learn on the job. Processes are always changing which creates a chaotic work environment. Long hours are not uncommon, so a genuinue passion and excitement for your clients is a must to fit in here.

    I worked at Situation full-time

    Pros

    -A lot of responsibility (depending on your position) to challenge you and help you grow
    -Great employees to work with
    -Fun events every month (even if you're not interested in the events, it's awesome that they still have them)
    -Transparency from President - actually, he's the best President you'll ever work for

    Cons

    -Long hours sometimes due to clients
    -Sometimes weird office politics but that's everywhere

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, continue listening to your employees and prioritize them.

    I have been working at Situation 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.
