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

    Pros

    If your main priority is work-life balance, you will love working on the digital team at Stream. Pretty much everyone clocks under 40 hours a week and everyone is young and friendly. If you try to socialize, you can make some great friends here. The people are definitely the best thing about this company.

    Management is extremely accessible, which is fantastic. More often than not, if you report an issue in the office, the CEO will come take care of it himself, even as the company continues in grow at an insane rate. This demonstrates the type of place that Stream tries to be, and they do it well. Weekly company-wide town hall meetings are a great way to boost team morale and keep everyone in the loop.

    There are plenty of benefits aside from great healthcare, high 401K match, etc, including a company wellness program, ultra casual dress code, company softball team, and annual beer olympics and holiday party. The culture and people at Stream are great, and you will be taught everything you need to know if you are hired with little experience in the field, so it’s an awesome place to learn. If you work hard and show enthusiasm, there's plenty of room for promotion, and many members of upper management started at Stream as interns years ago.

    Cons

    Stream focuses on one industry: auto dealerships. If you're looking for a diverse client base, new experiences that you can learn from, and lots of client interaction, you will be disappointed. It's a great place to learn the basics of digital, but once you become more of an expert, you may feel stunted by the uninspiring client work. Most clients don’t care very much about the work Stream produces, and offer no feedback or direction on projects, which can be frustrating. At times it seems that Stream is focused on building up a quantity of clients without regards to the quality of relationships/partnerships with them.

    Workload toes the line between being so heavy that you don’t have time to get in-depth in solving problems for each client, while still being incredibly repetitive and boring. Each client is put through an assembly line of what Stream has decided is the perfect formula for automotive digital marketing, so individuals on the team have little opportunity for creativity and all clients are treated the same and given pretty much the exact same services. The company will praise you for "doing the ordinary extraordinarily well," but it’s true that you will simply be doing the ordinary, with no focus on innovation.

    Team members are often praised, which is nice, but there is little to show for it, since there are no scheduled yearly reviews, salary raises, or bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great attitude, culture, and benefits. Consider what your client partnerships should look like, as well as whether your employees can be expected to feel fulfilled for long by being faced with an endless litany of repetitive tasks for clients that are all the same. The auto industry may be lucrative, and you may tackle it extremely well, but it's not a great recipe for employee retention rate in the long run of the company. Invest in better tools rather than trying to find work-around solutions when software doesn't work as it should.

    Pros

    Communication, entrepreneurial atmosphere, a focus on our health and well being, activities for health, discounted gym membership, career growth opportunities, direct access to leadership. This company is going to continue to grow significantly over the next few years.

    Cons

    Moves at a fast pace (not for everyone), can be difficult to navigate communication if you don't feel comfortable speaking up.

    Advice to Management

    A little more communication throughout the day for remote employees.

    I worked at Stream Companies full-time

    Pros

    No dress code, free cereal and bananas, can move around the office to work like in front of the tv in the cafe, some fun and smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Your superiors give you a false hope of job security and that you’re doing a great job, will high five you for they think you’re that good but in the blink of an eye, your boss can turn on you, ignore your pleas for help with a client in many emails, then someone new is hired, you train them and they fire you for no reason. They will also fire many people on your team and never communicate what happened either which is rather shady and unprofessional. Salaries are extremely unfair, low, and large disparities between what men and women make in the same role. too much work, not enough workers, working most nights either late or at home and even on the weekends. There’s also no HR department which is not in the employees favor. And also there are a few cliques and if you’re not in one of them there’s a target on your back.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees appropriately, defend your team, respect your team, and be transparent and communicate as much as possible as well as aligning salaries accordingly and consistently amongst both men and women.
