    I have been working at Take 5 Media Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Competitive pay
    -(Mostly) great coworkers
    -Hours are reasonable, though there are occasional "late nights", aka times we stay an extra 30 minutes or an hour
    -Free snacks, coffee, almost always cake since it seems to be someones birthday every day. That might actually be a con, if you're worried about gaining weight!

    Cons

    -No one can agree on the AC, leading it to either be too cold or too hot
    -As with most agencies, we're either slammed with client work

    I have been working at Take 5 Media Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I’ve been in the workforce for more than 25 years and have shared that time between 6 different companies. I am happy to say that I have now spent almost 8 years with Take 5 Media Group and that says a lot. The work environment is wonderful. Management and the staff, more than a 100 altogether, are friendly, approachable, cooperative and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    None really, other than I wish I had started with them sooner.

    Advice to Management

    Very important to maintain open dialogue with entire staff when important events or situations affect the company as a whole.

    I worked at Take 5 Media Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Pay and Benefits for what is essentially an entry level job.

    Cons

    It is little more than basic data entry. I spent nearly 3 years copy and pasting from an email to a glorified spreadsheet for 8 hours a day. The work is absolutely mind-numbing. If they didn't let me listen to music, there is no way I would have lasted more than a few months.
    No one is ever promoted. At least not really. The best you'll get is a position called "Lead." This means you will be responsible for an arbitrary and ever changing rank of co workers. But the responsibility is just regulating vacation hours and updating management when someone is on break or going to be late.
    The management is completely apathetic and are only in it for the paycheck. Good luck getting them to make any kind of changes to the outdated processes.
    And this is a job that will get you no where on a resume. No one has any skills that extend past basic Microsoft excel. Management refuses to provide any kind of training or upgrades, leaving the staff with a boring job and no where to go unless they want to take a pay cut and work somewhere else at the bottom of the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees, every single one of them wants to quit. But the money is too good.
