    I have been working at TopSpot Internet Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free snacks and drinks, free breakfast/lunch occasionally, decent healthplan, plenty of parking, gym in the building, plenty of social events and free tickets to sporting events. Plenty of PTO especially for people who've been at the company for a while. Calm, professional, yet casual environment. Very attentive to making sure everyone has the equipment and tools they need. Lots of training opportunities. Management truly...

    Cons

    Galleria area traffic. This is not a place where you'll have free time to goof off and browse the internet all day, you will have a full work load and will be expected to work (I rarely ever work overtime though, and when I do it's of my own accord)

    I worked at TopSpot Internet Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Great training, regular company social events, fully stocked fridge, monthly catered lunch and breakfast, tickets to events, casual dress code, convenient office location, TopSpot clothing, in office game room and free gym. I am sure I a missing a few but those are the big ones.

    Cons

    From a previous review - “Keep top grading! To often companies settle for team members that are just passing time. TopSpot has been great at investing in the team members that clearly want to grow and learn. Management needs to continue to get rid of the team members that are just creating drama and looking for free Texans tickets!”. This inane comment perfectly sums up the casually condescending and dismissive attitude...

    Advice to Management

    I will save both of our time and decline the opportunity. We both know you won’t take my opinion seriously and won’t change.

    I worked at TopSpot Internet Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Fully stocked kitchen, monthly catered lunches, work happy hours, friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    You will be extremely overworked and exceptionally underpaid for the work you will do. Upper management plays favorites and it shows. They put on a facade that this is a young, fun-loving company in order to draw you in, once you start working you will find it very difficult to have a comfortable work/life balance. As another review referenced, there is an employee in a management role who constantly touches employees...

    Pros

    Absolutely the best place I have ever worked. Continuous training, and a caring family like environment. I feel like everyone truly cares about me as a person and my personal growth and development.

    Cons

    Too much food!

    Advice to Management

    Keep top grading! To often companies settle for team members that are just passing time. TopSpot has been great at investing in the team members that clearly want to grow and learn. Management needs to continue to get rid of the team members that are just creating drama and looking for free Texans tickets! Replace them with professionals that want to be the best at their digital marketing craft!

    Pros

    Topspot has great company culture that encourages people to collaborate, learn, and grow. There are ton of free training sections, lunch and learn event, and team activities organized by both managements and employees. The people are probably the best of part of working here. Upper managements are transparent, honest and approachable. Most employees are friendly, young and are great people to work with. Beside the really...

    Cons

    Work, no mater how fun it can be, is still works. Depending the client or season, it can get busy. Traffic in Post Oak/Galleria is bad. Most of the jobs requires you to be able to adapt and learn new things, so if someone is set it on their way and like to have thing planned out step by step, it may not be a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for your afford on focusing on the employees and the customer experience. As long as Topspot doesn't lose sights on its people elements, it will continue to flourish.

    I worked at TopSpot Internet Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a great place is you just starting out, company catered lunches, free snacks and drinks. Peers are great

    Cons

    Management has their favorites so no matter how well you do your job they always find something wrong. The work load is so high that many people have to work nights and weekends. They paint a fascade culture which makes everyone afraid to speak their mind. They don't have any training and just expect you to figure it out as you go.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to trust your employees and stop micromanaging them.

    I worked at TopSpot Internet Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Sometimes they have food. Decent location. Some employees are great!

    Cons

    They lied during the interview, explaining all these great benefits and great " work/life" balance. There is none, all work no life. If you take time off they will try and have you make up those work hours when you get back without compensation! Management is horrible and no education background in management or even signs of any training. Makes sense why employee retention is horrible! They try to motivate by fear...

    Advice to Management

    when companies train employees they indulge them into the company culture and try to show them love and nurture to keep them from leaving to really believe in the company. If you do not change your view of the employees you will lose everyone but the ones actually responsible for the horrible situation, the over paid, over rated, uneducated managers. Management needs better training and better education or hire better...

    I worked at TopSpot Internet Marketing full-time

    Pros

    -Casual dress code -Decent paid time off

    Cons

    There is a male in a position of power at the company who routinely makes female employees (the majority of whom are young in their first professional job) uncomfortable. I saw him touch females in inappropriate ways (hugging, rubbing their back, ect.) countless times throughout my time at Topspot. This was so common that I contemplated keeping a written journal of the incidents that happened to be prepared in case future...

      Pros

      - seems to be a cool environment (its all a fascade) -catered lunches/breakfast for monthly meeting

      Cons

      -uncaring management especial owner David Underwood. I was continuously watched while completing a task and was made to feel very nervous and uncomfortable. -Other management is allowed to intimidate employees even when they are not your immediate manager. -Being an individual is looked down upon and everyone has to follow what they next person is doing or there is an issue. -I was bullied my my co-workers who invaded...

      Advice to Management

      The diversity there is none. Do not judge employees and give everyone a fair chance. Listen to what is going on with employees and the work environment. As an employee I was made to feel unwelcomed and was harassed and intimidated by others on the job.

      Pros

      - The people: It is incredibly motivating to be around such a driven group of individuals. Everyone is available to provide insight/help when needed which allows for a pretty close knit group. - Constantly learning: TopSpot encourages everyone to expand their knowledge every day. We have trainings, webinars, internal meetings, and more to make sure that everyone is up to date on any new trend in the digital marketing...

      Cons

      I hate to put "N/A" here but there isn't one con that weighs on my day to day. At the end of the day this is a digital marketing agency so things are constantly moving and the environment is fast paced. You can either look at that as an environment to constantly learn/grow or an environment that stresses you out.

      Advice to Management

      Thank you.
