    I worked at Sojern full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hands down, some of the smartest people I've met work at this company. No one was afraid to dissect a problem, find a solution, roll-up their sleeves, and handle the work.

    People were treated fairly by senior leaders and were expected to do the same to everyone. The culture was created by the top and instilled all the way to the bottom. Senior leaders were approachable and welcomed it.

    I admired how no one ever hid behind an email or approached topics in a passive-aggressive fashion. Open, honest, and direct conversations were the norm and set the tone week over week.

    The amount of transparency at this company is second to none. You're treated like an owner and honesty amongst teammates are both promoted and expected. It was such a growing organization when I was there that new employees were being added to multiple offices at any given point. Recruiting did a great job of making sure that the new employees were "the right fit" versus growing for the sake of growth.

    Cons

    I wouldn't necessarily say that this is a negative, but things move so quickly that it can be hard to keep up. You are never left to be in place where you won't succeed, but because you're treated like an owner with autonomy, you're expected (as you should be) to do the work that comes with it.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, but thank you for making my time there enjoyable and a rewarding experience. It is evident that the leadership team truly believes in it's people, their abilities, and the company's mission. You always put people first because you knew that was how objectives would be achieved, which was fantastic and appreciated by all.

    Best of luck as you march-on and shape the advertising world. The company will continue to do amazing things.

    Pros

    On the first day I got hired as a Campaign Coordinator, I had a meeting with my supervisor. He informed me that he knew that I had an extensive math background and was giving me the tools I needed to become an analyst at Sojern. This concept of nurturing the talents of each employee blew me away. An absolutely amazing atmosphere to work in, and upbeat colleagues. They also provide free food, and drinks which is essential to me too. Best job I have ever had.

    Cons

    Sometimes we will have rush orders that may have us staying a tad late. I've only had one in the 90 days I have worked here.
