      I have been working at Resolution full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Work perk like Lunch and Learns, tons of online classes, seminars with major social media platforms, great learning experience for a first time job. Pays better than other companies. Supervisors definitely have it harder. Really cool accounts like HP, Wells Fargo, CW, Qantas, Levi’s just to name a few. Tons of accounts and other OMD companies working in the same building. So potential growth within the same company.

      Cons

      Strictly performance media, so social and search. Maybe some programmatic. Not as many work perks as the display side.

      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Resolution full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Free perks from vendors. What you learn depends on your manager. Leadership is a joke, don’t expect to learn from them.

      Cons

      Leadership is a joke. Don’t know anything about the day to day. They just messengers seeking info from the little ones while don’t do anything. Blame the little ones when things happen, yet that’s their responsibilities as a higher up. Company went through 3 changes without a single thought about processes, accuen to resolution, resolution to omd. No processes made, just on paper merge.

      Advice to Management

      Before you open your mouth, go learn how to respect and what the industry is like now. Besides your years of experience, you’re pretty much outdated. Instead of asking employees to learn, think you should learn how the business day to day works before giving advices.

        Pros

        Good atmosphere, friendly coworkers, opportunity for advancement, but...

        Cons

        advancement for opportunity dwindles as you go higher, or lose a client. Management can also do a better job at helping out workers who are more in the weeds.
