    macro-management, tons of training opportunities, laidback and friendly culture.

    I worked at Wpromote full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They did give a lot of perks that one can enjoy.

    Cons

    1. There management in LA is completely oblivious to how the Dallas office works and makes no strides to understand. They are much like bullies where they come in and take over your work and talk down to you.
    2. Since Wpromote acquired the company I was previously with I never had an on time performance review.

    Advice to Management

    Don't come in acting like your way is better, Standing Dog was quite successful prior to your acquisition, learn from the Dallas office.

    I worked at Wpromote full-time

    Pros

    Great perks
    Work from anywhere policy (once trusted)
    Recent introduction of unlimited PTO

    Cons

    Low salary.
    Sheer lack of diversity.
    Yes they are cool and trendy (bring your cute dog to work) and have all the latest things (foosball and ping-pong anyone) that attract the young and hip to work at a company (I should know I was one) - but take a look around the office...
    What are their ethnicity?
    How old are they?
    Anyone in a wheelchair or disabled?

    Take a look at the "Who We Are" page on their website - A pretty homogeneous group overall.

    I'm not saying I witnessed any discrimination - but surely a company this size should have a mix of individuals represented.

    Advice to Management

    Actively encourage diversity when hiring.

    Pros

    The most dynamic, fastest growing firm of its kind, great team, offices nationwide, ability to advance, great benefits, fair pay.

    Cons

    Definitely not a good fit if you aren't used to working your butt off, not for the meek or lazy.

    Advice to Management

    Involve the different smaller offices as much as possible so everyone feels included.

    I have been working at Wpromote full-time

    Pros

    Culture in the main office is very fun and focused on making sure you like coming into the office.
    Caliber of work provided to clients is amazing.
    Employees are constantly encouraged to learn more about the industry.
    Plenty of extracurriculars.

    Cons

    All non-LA offices are seen by management as secondary.
    Employees are often let go due to "redundancy"
    Workloads are poorly managed
    Employees are heavily pressured and expected to participate in activities and events outside of regular workload, regardless of whether they have time or not.

    Honestly, it depends greatly on which office you're in and what department you're in.

    Advice to Management

    Focus a little more on employee retention.

    Pros

    Overall, you can't beat the community and environment of this company. The people here are not just co-workers and not just friends, they are a group of like-minded people who share an extraordinary ability to be both interpersonally-enjoyable and also professionally-savvy.

    Cons

    The company is still expanding and growing quickly, so there can be some gaps in process(es) and their effectiveness.

    Advice to Management

    More clarity in training and management.
