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

    Pros

    iCrossing has come a long way. The new management team has implemented better processes, more open communication and mapped a vision for the company that the team can believe in. The Santa Monica office, once divided by back stabbing and an extremely counter productive atmosphere, now has some of the best teamwork and camaraderie you could wish for.

    Cons

    Management decisions can often be opaque, taking place with little consultation to the team or mid-management. Not enough focus on regional business development.

    Advice to Management

    On the whole communication has vastly improved, but there are sometimes secretive decisions, or comments made that can be extremely demoralizing for the team. Radical candor would help further breakdown perceptions of evasiveness or duplicity.

    Cons

    -iCrossing is SUPER heavily weighted on the upper management side, and employees don't feel that management listens to them
    -low pay for everyone but execs
    -after someone leaves iCrossing RARELY hires someone new, leaving all that persons work on the rest of the team
    -terrible processes that slow things down.
    -starting to have a much more "corporate" feel.
    -takes FOREVER to get reviews done, salary increases or to hire new people

    Advice to Management

    Plenty of opportunity to expand your professional and digital marketing skill set and advance your career with large and exciting clients to work with.
