    Pros

    Media integration, culture, leadership, structure, strong work ethics from assistants up to senior management.

    Cons

    Slow to integrate all teams at times. Under-staffed on a few teams allowing for work overload on multiple accounts.

    Pros

    Family, togetherness, team, growth opportunities

    Cons

    Need more parking spaces, some feel more comfortable with parking their vehicles, valet is good for the most part, but some of the valet persons are reckless when driving the vehicles in the parking lot. My vehicle has received a few dents and scratches since valet has been parking it. :(

    Advice to Management

    When a team member is doing well, acknowledge them. They will feel appreciated and will want to continually work hard to improve themselves, along with the team. There is no "I" in team, only "WE".

    Pros

    Free snacks and drinks. Downtown location (Cummins Station) and a parking pass.

    Cons

    If your potential new manager is a female, RUN. No room for growth. If you mention your career goals or path you will be laughed at for not having paid your time yet (this really happened). Those that have paid their time are still not getting promoted. No recognition, and undermining of your skills and abilities. Unprofessionalism in front of the client and with management style. Terrible benefits package and the 401k is not worth contributing to. Lack of communication between HQ and regional offices.. was not made aware of processes or that we even had a regular company town hall meeting. No training. Worst decision I've ever made career-wise.

    Advice to Management

    5 people on an already small team quit within my year of working there. That ought to be something you should look at. Invest in your people - give them a chance to make the management look better - empower them to use their skills and better this company. When team members are embarrassed to be associated with this group in front of the client and other agencies - that says something. You must invest in your employees both professionally and personally, to remain competitive. If you're more collaborative, more empowering and more engaging, people will want to join you. People want to feel like the company they put their time and effort into values them, and Zimmerman falls short here.

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities to work on big accounts
    Fun, friendly co-workers
    Very nice office (updated & modern)
    Lots of great perks

    Cons

    Poor upper management support
    Lack of education for the digital teams and what they do
    Workload at times is overwhelming
    No work life balance
    Everything is a priority and management does not help to prioritize realisticly
    Clients are extremely demanding and the agency allows Clients to treat employees terribly
    Pay is super low

    Advice to Management

    Be the voice for your team. Support them. Listen to them. Do not let client's or upper management walk all over you. If you continue to do so, people will continue to leave.
