    Pros

    Fun digital signage tech company with cool product solutions. Expanding and remodeling headquarters in Louisville, KY to position for growth, creating new and exciting opportunities for the business and employees. Recent hiring of new talent has filled final gaps from prior merger. CEO is present, transparent, and involved with employees. Benefits package is awesome - company pays 100% of employee premiums. Casual and relaxed culture with supporting office environments.

    Cons

    Company is spread out with offices in US and Canada because of prior mergers so some employees have never met face to face, however video conferencing is used often so that enhances communication.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support employees and stay focused on the vision/mission.

    Pros

    Flexibility, building strong relationships, inspiring innovation
    The CEO is transparent in his direction for the company and persistent in seeing the company succeed. Upper management are personable. Coworkers are nice and work to meet the needs of our customers -- consistently and efficiently.

    Cons

    The company is spread out so it is hard to meet everyone in the other locations but everyone is encouraged to communicate with each other.
    The salaries could be a bit better but I understand it can take time.

    Pros

    There is a lot of investment in new platforms and technology underway. The offices and work environment are very inviting and comfortable. A lot of big name clients always keeps work interesting when you can actually show people you know what you are supporting and doing for a living.

    Cons

    With all the new platforms there is still a lot of work to be done to revise, create, and improve legacy processes and gaps in standard operating procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the current strategy and see it through. There will be challenges that make it tempting to change the direction but make sure you course correct rather than pick a new destination.

    Pros

    This company is very casual, yet business oriented at the end of the day, so things stay interesting. There is also a wide variety of technology that we get to see and work with (who doesn't like new toys?). The overall culture I have been very impressed with as I have had multiple encounters with our top brass.

    I can say Rick is the best person I have ever had the pleasure of working for.

    Cons

    Like any company it is easy to over work to make sure SLA's are met and that customers remain happy.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make sure you take care of your employee's and they will take care of your customers.

    I have been working at Creative Realities full-time

    Pros

    The best thing about working here is that there is always something going on. I have never been with a company that has more going on than CRI. The sales staff have years of experience, and each of them bring a different aspect of digital experiences to the table. Some focus on retail, others are in the automotive industry, and corporate communications. It is never a dull moment here. Not to mention we are always growing.

    Cons

    We are a newly merged company, and there are some kinks that still need to be ironed out. There are still a few issues with the command structure, and it doesn't always get followed. However, I will say that all of these issues are getting addressed. It won't take long to get it all in check.

    Advice to Management

    Organizational chart would a great start! Following said chart would be even better!!

    Pros

    Renewed vitality and operational disciple thanks to current CEO; commitment to client centricity, allocation of resources and investment in talent to deliver best in class digital solutions. Harmonious leadership team resulting in more consistent direction to the teams, and increased client retention and expansion of services.

    Cons

    minor culture clashes can occur from time to time, due to legacy merger and past lack of proper integration - but nothing that can't be overcome with patience and focus

    Advice to Management

    continue to invest in talent, and seeking continuous feedback company wide - invaluable to course correction, performance, profitability and overall experience satisfaction - inside and out
