I can't say enough good things about working at Intrigue! The team is very supportive, and the leaders in the organization are always looking out for each individual. I've never experienced a work place that cares as much about each team members personal goals and what they want to achieve outside of the workplace as well. The culture at Intrigue is unlike any other company I have ever experienced. A lot of learning and growth happens outside the comfort zone, so you have to have to be okay to get uncomfortable and learn new things (which is not always for everyone). Plus there are dogs in the office most days and who wouldn't love that??
Nothing that I can think of!

Intrigue is a great place to work with a great team and awesome clients. If you're looking for a place that encourages growth and learning both in your personal life and at work, this is it. Each week, each member of the team completes 'leader building' which is where you're encouraged to share your learning from the week prior. This has set the team up for consistent growth, and speaking to my own personal experience has taught me a lot about the work that other teams within the company do. The company is super transparent and everyone has each other's backs. They also try to help you do the work that you enjoy and are great at within your job where possible. As for the 'fun' perks, there are regular team events like pub nights and sporting events, a slo-pitch team to join, dogs (and puppies!) in the office, and more!
Since it's still a relatively small company internally, there isn't a ton of room for upwards growth. Having said that, they work closely with individuals to try to make sure that each person has the tools and steps that they need to still grow in their career and offer opportunities where possible.

Reasonable pay. Interesting projects. One CEO is very nice.
The second CEO has anger management issues, is a bully to the team and quite willing to lie directly to your face. Anyone who has worked there knows the name of the person being described which should make it clear that this is a valid review of them. Other team members will dismiss it as, “Oh, that’s just how he is.”, which is not a healthy attitude. Drinking the Intrigue Kool-Aid is an important step in being taken seriously and rewarded both professionally and financially. If you fail to recognize the value of personality tests, marketing guru books and the most recent management process they have read about and want to try you are not going to have a good time. Management will ask for open communication and promise that all input will be taken into account but only a small number of voices are actually heard or taken seriously. One of their central philosophies is a quote from Star Wars, posted on one of the office walls. Seriously.1Intrigue Media Response9mo
I must start this reply by apologizing. I have to admit that I am passionate when it comes to getting the most out of our team and Intrigue, sometimes it gets the best of me. I have been working on it for years, I’m not perfect. To be clear, this reviewer is referring to myself, Rob Murray, as the bad cop. I will own that as I do my best to lead with accountability inside our organization for the best of the company. For the most part, this review is accurate. When it comes to personality tests, we believe that a leader must first be self aware, yes, we value that. Reading books and studying management processes is a core value at Intrigue. ‘Learning - Practice an Unquenchable Thirst for Applicable Knowledge’ Yes, we value that. Drinking the kool-aid, yes we value people that are aligned with our purpose to Empower Leaders & Strengthen Communities. We have been marching towards the same direction as a company for 4 years, niching down and narrowing our focus on the clients and entrepreneurs we serve in order to become specialists and expand into the US. It’s working, we’re not deviating from that. Anyone reading this, we’d love your help to make it happen faster! We do have spouses in the same office. We value them. We won’t stop bringing family to company functions, and welcome everyone on the team to do the same, especially babies and puppies! In the end, I’m sorry we put you in a place that didn’t fit. I wish you nothing but success in your career and happiness for you and those closest to you. I must state though that the ‘lying to your face’ comment above has no bearing. Lying makes you have to remember what you said, I’m too forgetful to make that work. But, if I did mislead you in any way, I apologize. Lastly, Yoda is amazing, that’s not going to change either. ----- Rob Murray CEO Intrigue Media
