    I worked at hawkeye full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Honestly can't think of any pros of working here.

    Cons

    Hours are grueling, little to no recognition of hard work by upper management. Immense problems with politics in upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop placing blame on your employees and own up to your mistakes. Other companies are noticing.

    I worked at hawkeye full-time

    Pros

    I cannot think of any pros to work here

    Cons

    Everything is about politics and not about your work, the upper management is lacking, all the lower employees do all the hard work, work overtime frequently (up to 70 hours a week) and do not get rewarded

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing hard workers instead of people who can put on a fake smile and go to happy hour

    I have been working at hawkeye part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the pay and the break room (if you get to use it) the food (if you ever have time to eat it)

    Cons

    Very hard work. Often no breaks, short on staff, management doesn't care. High turnover. No career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Try listening to the residents who complain and take their advice.

    I have been working at hawkeye full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They lost a lot of good personnel recently especially in the software development area due to conflicts with either the accounts services people or with management. They have a small software development group so you get a chance to work on different applications and dabble on the latest technology. Good telecommute options. Salary is very competitive for a small company. Medical and health benefit is about average. They do have a nice recreation area with free snacks and drinks.

    Cons

    Work life balance has declined recently due to lack of resources. Management doesn't seem to care so much about employees. There's very little room for growth. Ones you've peaked a certain position you are pretty much stuck. Education and training benefits are not very good. Employee turn over has risen recently due to poor management decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Management should do something about employee retention especially keeping the good ones since it is hard to find good people to work in Kent area. They need to cultivate and focus on employee growth and invest more on training and education. Also replace key personnel especially in software development to avoid stressing out software engineers and QA people. Otherwise they will continue to experience high turn overs. They need to restore the good work life balance. Happy employees perform better and are more productive than stressed out ones and are more likely to stay.

    Pros

    Nice people to work with.

    Cons

    High employee turnover. Sees employee as cheap and replaceable labor. Poor pay. Pay raise is embarrassing and degrading. Lack of opportunity and advancement. Bonus is miserable. Poor culture and low employee satisfaction.

    Quality staff leaves after a year.

    Incompetent and inexperienced management which is very hard to work with. They are constantly moving things arround to cover up for their own incompetence.

    Stay quiet and do your job/ do not ask questions attitude.

    Disorganized. Lack of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to keep high performers.
    Improve employee morale and satisfaction.
    Replace old management.
    Position employees to succeed within the company.

    I worked at hawkeye full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I feel like the pros of working at hawkeye were: the Work and Life Balance, Co-workers, Atmosphere in the office, Company values, Company events, Casual attire, and the Candy room.

    Cons

    I feel that the opportunities for advancement are not really there. It seems as if there are little chances for upward growth, instead they move workers from position to position on the same level.

    Advice to Management

    The office culture is great and you made my time there a great one. I'm looking forward to seeing what Publicis Hawkeye has in store for the future!

    No one looks over your shoulder to make sure you're getting your work done (unless you have a reputation for incorrect/late work). Flexible attitudes including dress code

    Cons

    Managers can be too hands off.

    I worked at hawkeye full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My client which has nothing to do with my work environment.

    Cons

    This company hires recent college graduates and works them to death. Upper management is so unqualified and rips off the company by purchasing personal items and expensing them. Upper management has the liberty to do what they want and treat all employees lower than them and not as a team. Many client complaints from management responses and unethical behaviors. There is no open door policy since all upper management is pretty much college friends and things just get brushed off. My colleagues where very unhappy (but as interns most dont speak up) and the accounting is horrible at keeping track of money. I personally printed out items that where bought for personal use and expensed to an account and it was thousands of dollars. Lets just say the management is going no where and neither will the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep a closer look on your upper management expense reports its costing you a lot of $$$$.
