Pros

- Highly skilled and passionate co-workers
- Opportunity to work for a variety of interesting clients
- Lots of knowledge sharing between co-workers

Cons

- Highly political environment
- Management made lots of promises they didn't keep
- Absolutely no work-life balance (and there never will be)
- Surprisingly poor support of employees with proper hardware and software to do their job
- Archaic time reporting system
- Employees are expendable

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Continue to inspire your staff
- Stop making promises you can't keep to your employees
- Put your employees first -- treat them with dignity, not like slaves
- Deliver on the promise of work-life balance -- endless work hours does not have to be a badge of honor; promote working effectively, not endlessly
- Keep the backbiting to a minimum; treat people fairly

    Poor management within the interactive group

    Pros

    Good benefits. You have some autonomy if you can handle the cons of working here. Great clients.

    Cons

    Management takes advantage of lower pay employees who are willing to consistently put in overtime. There is a "you're with us or against us" attitude from managers and employees are afraid to speak up. Billability and profits are more important than creative vision and quality work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new managers with outside agency experience.

    Pros

    Great place to grow both personally and professionally. Both the benefits and the culture support this.

    Cons

    Public company (parent org) so we have to play by those rules which feels like it can be limiting although overall it allows us stability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more structured mentorship and succession planning, or at least be more transparent about it.
