    I worked at St. Joseph Communications full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None. I guess the starting salary was ok.

    Cons

    Toxic, mean leadership. They will use and abuse you to get what they need, and then toss you off to the side the second you push back or stand up for yourself. Suggestions and questions about projects are tantamount to insubordination and you will likely be met with hostility from management for trying to get basic information needed to do your job. You will be asked to work overtime on projects that have constantly moving deadlines or expectations and are given very little instruction or information up front. You will be told you need to be a "Self Starter" but management uses this as a tool to negate their people managing responsibilities. I have been chewed out by my manager on a zoom call in front of other employees simply for asking a question about a project I was on. Other times management would openly trash talk other agencies who partner on the same clients creating an uncomfortable environment. You will be treated with contempt and a general lack of respect for any skills or experience you bring to the table. Never ever suggest or appear to seem like you know more than your manager (even if it's a topic you're an expert in) or prepare to get yelled at. You will have no work life balance and will be expected to give up weekends to work on tedious projects that will likely be revised endlessly due to poor expectation setting with clients. I have never been so disrespected by a company in my entire professional career. Oh, and good luck getting to their office if you don't have a car.

    Pros

    Some great people and clients. Looks like a great place to work on the surface. Until you do.

    Cons

    Boys club senior management team who make bad decisions and who don’t know the business. Staff are treated like slaves who are expected to comply with job insecurity and the toxic bully culture, they butter you up to get what they want, and they toss you in the garbage and yell and scream if you don’t. There’s no investment in people, training, technology or raises. They even take back your vacation time or force unpaid weeks on you and that was before Covid. HR turns a blind eye and has had their “due to the increase in emails due to Covid...” out of office message on since March. Applicants beware. This isn’t a good place and these are not good people.
