    I have been working at WebiMax full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    WebiMax is a company that appreciates hard work and a positive attitude. There is a great vibe throughout the office. Everyone genuinely enjoys working together and learning from one another. Those who are committed to helping clients see success can really go far with the company. There is a great platform to voice ideas and input so you really feel like you are making an impact.

    Cons

    I come from working at a large corporation and the difference when I moved to WebiMax, a much smaller "non corporate" firm, was an adjustment. I have learned over time that these challenges are short term and the overall benefits of working at WebiMax far outweigh the corporate world. I will also say, to be successful at WebiMax you need to be comfortable with change. The digital marketing world changes often and WebiMax needs to adapt to those changes. The company is also still quite young so there are changes to processes and procedures. If you are someone who does not work well with change, you would struggle to find success.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show appreciation and reward those who are working hard and are committed to seeing their clients and WebiMax succeed.

    I worked at WebiMax full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can wear casual clothes, free snacks and the occasional free lunch. Met some good employees. They have a good pizza shop down the road.

    Cons

    I have to be careful here as I've heard that Webimax is known to threaten ex employees with legal action on those who tell the negative truth. I used to work as a project manager and at first it was a good job. After a couple of months, I realized that our client's were simply getting ripped off. We would never deliver the results and in the end it was on the project managers to try and keep a client from terminating. After some months I couldn't take it anymore and would actually leave work everyday feeling guilty, ashamed and sorry for clients. I can honestly say that 90% of the clients I worked with were unsatisfied and I always heard cases of other project managers constantly loosing clients.

    The other thing I noticed is that the owners would only show up to work twice a week, if that. I have never been in a company where this happens. I was always used to seeing the CEO be the first one at work and the last one to leave at my other jobs. This probably explains why Webimax is headed in the wrong direction. At one point there were more than 100 employees, last I heard there were about 30. Definitely not the signs of a healthy company and one you would not want to work for. To make matters worse, the pay is extremely low.

    Advice to Management

    Show up to work every day and set an example for your employees. You can't expect a company to grow if the leaders aren't present. Look at fixing your services so that they actually provide results to clients and keeps them happy to stay. Doing these things will keep employees happy and talk positively about the company.

    There are opportunities to move up the ladder quickly when you put in the work.
    Monthly meetings with management to discuss the latest with the company.
    Full transparency on strategic changes to help better our clients' campaigns.
    Great coworkers.

    A strong belief that the team has never been stronger than it is today.

    Cons

    If you don't like being busy, WebiMax isn't the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the current path of transparency in regards to company growth. It empowers the team to push that much harder to help us reach our goals. Please continue to encourage employees to bring their ideas to the table and know that you can create your own role if it's helping our clients and our company.

    I worked at WebiMax (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual environment. Occasional company functions, employee choice on music, great waterfront location.

    Cons

    There is zero emphasis on client satisfaction. Very churn and burn, leading to low employee morale. The CEO is clueless talking head and likely bipolar by the way he embraces you to your face and then cowardly berates you via email. All three owners run the office primarily through cronyism, not merit.

    Advice to Management

    Find new leadership. Realize that without satisfied clients AND employees, your days are numbered.

    Pros

    Ability to work from home.

    Cons

    WebiMax is pretty much a sales company that also provides digital marketing services. There is no emphasis on the quality of work and you are often rushed through tasks for clients. You work on a ton of small budget clients, so you can't spend much time actually making an effective marketing campaign. To be honest many of the clients are just wasting money month after month. Clients tend to realize it within a few months and leave for better agencies. You have to track every minute of your day. Working at WebiMax is not worth the amount of stress for such little pay. Due to the low pay and poor employee morale turnover is very high. Don't get stuck here, it is not a place to make into a career.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all employees and change with the industry. What worked when you were growing in 2008 is not working today.

    Pros

    if you are just starting your career in marketing, this company is great for learning the basics - but only the basics. expect to learn the bare minimum and if you have any initiative and/or common sense you will quickly outgrow the company.

    Cons

    the company has poor leadership and questionable business ethics. there have been many large-scale layoffs that seem somewhat random, resulting in extremely low morale...bordering on paranoia at times. sales reps over-promise clients which feels very desperate then project managers are left cleaning up the messes. the real victims are the clients who receive inconsistent, sloppy work with no real vision, research, or strategy to back it up.

    Advice to Management

    hire a qualified, experienced CEO - its okay if you dont have all the answers, but its not okay if you keep pretending that you do at the expense of your clients' budgets and your employees' peace of mind.

    Pros

    Office view, work from home once a week

    Cons

    Cliquey college frat boys club mentality, most management are related, frequent "restructuring", pay that is embarrassingly low, high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Actually stick to what you say you will do to improve and not just do something for show. Stop with the favoritism. If you want to keep the talent, pay them what they deserve.
