Company Culture

There is no culture at all.

Support from management

Management is almost completely separated from the employees.

Teamwork

None to speak of.

Freedom to work independently

You have to work autonomously. But not in a good way

Internal Communication

If there's any, it comes in the form of vaguely worded emails, passive-aggressive statements, or threats.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not at all.

Career Development

They offer a professional development session once a week. But it is in name only and not taken seriously by anyone.

Overall compensation for your work

I was under-compensated for my title and experience. Promises were made, but never kept.

Office / Work Environment

One word: Toxic.

Environmental Friendliness

Not really. There's a trash can for recycling.

Work-Life Balance

They don't care about it. They make a big deal about the PTO program, but if you're a conscientious employee, you get a guilt trip to go along with the request approval.

Company Image

Industry professionals in the area know the reputation and it is not good at all.

Job Security

Layoffs and restructuring are common because of revenue issues. Longevity has no bearing on if they keep an employee.

Challenging Work

I like the original work we produced, however, too many people step outside their responsibilities to influence the work. And not for the better.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The company could do so much to improve the culture and quality, but it does no good to try. They won't listen anyway.

What I like about the company

The employees are nice, but they are miserable.

What I dislike about the company

They have no emphasis on employee retention and accept astronomical turnover as standard. Any attempt to improve work conditions and culture, or expand business is met with scorn.

Company Culture

It's unimportant to management and owners.

Support from management

None. They care little for employees and only for themselves.

Freedom to work independently

With little collaboration or communication between departments, you HAVE to work autonomously.

Internal Communication

There is no communication between departments. We hear about successes, which are few and far between. We are forced to vote for the agency for awards.

Gender Equality

Not really given any consideration.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not at all. They hire first time employees fresh out of college.

Career Development

If you can hack it, you can advance quickly, but only because turnover is so high. But management is out of reach for most people.

Overall compensation for your work

Everyone but managers are underpaid compared to similar positions in the area.

Office / Work Environment

Second-hand equipment and a crowded cube farm upstairs. Downstairs is a dungeon. They can't control the temperature. No natural light.

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling. Kind of.

Work-Life Balance

There's not really enough work to worry about work-life balance. But they laid off people and restructured, so working more hours is necessary.

Company Image

Not at all. Turnover is high because they can only fool people for so long. We have only one local client. The agency is a joke to others in the area.

Job Security

No employee is safe and there are so many trying to leave.

Challenging Work

The level of work has gotten progressively worse because they simply don't care about quality.

Inclusive / Diverse

The workplace is diverse, but no one's opinions are valued.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Doesn't matter. They won't listen anyway.

What I like about the company

The people I work with are nice, talented individuals.

What I dislike about the company

Management doesn't value employees. They have their own agendas. They don't work together very well and their decisions have forced people to leave or be laid off. Employee retention is horrible and there is high turnover.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to your employees and stop motivating people with fear.

What I like about the company

It is possible to learn quite a bit, but it's not worth the abuse.

What I dislike about the company

They treat people horribly, are unethical and act like this is normal. They don't really care about the employees and consider everyone to be replaceable.
