Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire leaders not bosses. Work together with one another and stop letting employees bully managers

What I like about the company

Ten years plus. It was a great place to work and build lasting relationships

What I dislike about the company

Need to have a more open door policy, help growth through mentoring more, and help employees get into positions they aspire to be in rather than holding them in current roles.

  • No improvements necessary. I am happy with everything.

They treat employees fairly. They ask for input and feedback. They try to fix things that are not right.

Company Culture

Company culture on paper made for great ad and media. Unfortunately, if you are not part of upper management, then you are on the outside looking in. However, during my tenure, the company culture was in the midst of creating their culture, organizing media exposure and forging a path in Atlanta.

Support from management

I was not given the opportunity to advance, despite requesting several times to take classes that in my opinion would help the department.

Gender Equality

Definitely a man's world. The few female leaders were not really the movers and shakers, the decision makers. I believe there was an attempt to create a balance but true leadership should foster mentorship and leading by example. A great leader can bring about change, excitement and loyalty.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The company did not discriminate against age.

Career Development

Sadly, that was NOT a part of the culture.

Overall compensation for your work

Benefits were offered, salary was not quite commiserate with the industry standards. I feel minorities were not given the same opportunities, pay advances nor training. This is inclusive of women, and/or certain nationalities.

Company Image

Unfortunately the image does not reflect reality.

Job Security

Very unstable place of employment. Several layoffs in the last 1.5 years.

Handicapped Accessibility

Building is accessible.

Workplace Safety

Very safe. The company tom great measures to ensure employees were in a safe environment.

Inclusive / Diverse

Not a diverse company. IN my opinion diversity in the workplace was secondary to profit/margin. Given better leadership, I believe the company would have been a better place to work and grow.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better communication from leadership. Advancement within; stable environment.

What I like about the company

Alot of benefits that are not industry standard, which is a plus.

What I dislike about the company

Leadership and opportunities for advancement.

What I dislike about the company

Worst place I've ever worked in my 20+ year career. New CEO is not a leader. Bad things to come. You've been warned!
