    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, love the work culture here, all the employees are great. You can't tell who is upper level and who is lower level because everyone is so genuinely nice and easy to talk to. We have a lot of great clients and get to work on a lot of very cool projects

    Cons

    Interns do not get paid enough & we work 40+ hours a week doing anything and everything, also sometimes the work get slow for interns and there isn't much to do

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all employees are reaching out to the interns, some would prefer to do things on their own instead of teaching

    I worked at ignition, inc. full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on some really cool brands and projects, travel and be involved in major events around the country/world, depending on which accounts you are on. Impressive history and cornerstone leadership of some of the world's largest events - such as Olympics and Fifa for Coca-Cola.

    Cons

    This company has lost it's identity after selling out to Havas. Under former leadership there really was a family vibe, a feeling that everyone truly cared about one another through thick and thin - a real strong team aspect. People passionate about the work and each other, inspired by leadership and shared vision. They used to really be "all about the people", which made the below average salaries more tolerable. This is no longer, now just another agency in the sea of experiential service providers who are all about the bottom line, beholden to their parent company, a puppet holding onto one of many strings pulled by beancounters and executives who couldn't care less about positive human energy.

    Advice to Management

    Truly invest in your people, give them not only competitive salaries but also the tools to succeed and keep up with your key competitors. All talk and minimal action / improvement leads to deteriorating morale.

    I have been working at ignition, inc. full-time

    Pros

    The people! Hands down some of the nicest people who are very inviting and smart and team-oriented. Everyone seems to genuinely like each other.

    Cons

    I'm never challenged and it feels like I'm not doing much. Not many opportunities to advance or expand capabilities either which is disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    No advice really. I feel like this agency is in a better place than most because the people are good.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great. The events/activations were always well organized. The company has a relatively quick turnaround on pay.

    Cons

    There was one instance at my time working with them that I waited months to receive pay for an activation. Not many opportunities for advancement. Rely heavily on interns in lieu of creating positions.
