    Pros

    Great place to start your career and build a foundation in digital marketing. -Overall great people to work with -Good benefits -Great training and learning opportunities

    Cons

    -Management. Upper management has been at the helm for a few years but still has little grasp of the dynamics of the business. Decisions are issued and retracted quickly. Aggressive personalities make it difficult to have a constructive discussion about the path forward. You essentially need to get in everyone's face to advance your ideas. This in turn leads to similar personalities getting promoted and the cycle continues. Meanwhile, talented employees leave. Cronyism is also an issue. -Technology. Great engineers, but tech is dated with the pace of innovation slow. Likewise, much of the work is focused on catching up to the industry rather than creating modern solutions. This creates a lack of faith in the products employees are asked to sell, using some very creative descriptions of services that the company has no ability to provide. -Turnover. High turnover among longtime employees, who were either forced out by management, or got fed up and left. Top talent does not stick around long. Turnover also high among clients, though sales has been good about filling in the hole. -Culture. Culture has become more corporate since the acquisition. The company still tries to sell the Silicon Valley startup image but falls short. For example, you get flex time off, if you're taking the allowed amount of time off. Old traditions died with longtime employees leaving and the company culture is essentially forced from the top down via HR initiatives in line with management goals. Rank and file employees come in for a paycheck and are not particularly passionate about the work. Part of it goes back to the tech piece and knowing that no matter how inefficient something is, there is no way to change it in any meaningful way. -Bottom of the ladder. Being part of ADS has benefits, but being at the bottom of ADS > Epsilon > Conversant > CJ, seriously hamstrings the company.

    Pros

    There are some great people at CJ and you will make some lifetime friends. You do get great experience, just sometimes not worth the stress.

    Cons

    The newer upper management’s philosophy is work more and do more with less people. The workload is overwhelming and the pay is less than the industry average. It’s been a stressful environment being pushed to sell to clients. Flex time off policy makes people feel as if they can’t take time off.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t push people to their breaking points and reevaluate company goals as it has seemingly turned into a sales focused company that doesn’t care about their employees.

    Pros

    Great people, many opportunities to advance or move departments, very good benefits, and many learning opportunities. Recommend as a place to work with many great, smart people, and to become knowledgeable in affiliate marketing. There are many resources available, the departments work well together, and the help from teammates is typically above par. The company events for employees are fun, and it is a young people environment. You are always challenged and learning new things.
