      Mehh

      Apr 30, 2021 - Account Manager in Bellevue, WA

      Pros

      Really smart people, learn a ton, big name clients, made some great friends

      Cons

      Preach work/life balance but truly terrible (avg. 10+ hour days). Need larger teams and higher wage to make it bearable. No incentives for junior employees to grow in the company and they don't reward those junior staffers who stick around opposed to agency hop.

      Great culture, could be better pay

      Pros

      Love the culture here and I truly find the work I'm doing interesting. Good leadership from exec team as well.

      Cons

      The pay could be MUCH better. They spend a lot of money on "culture building" activities or incentives but really they should be spending it on employees' salaries.
