    Pros

    Snacks, convenient location, WFH opportunities, summer fridays

    Cons

    Where to begin?
    This agency doesn't actually care about client success as much as it does profit and upselling. They hire kids right from out of college and scare them into writing Glassdoor reviews literally on their first day, if you wonder why so many of these reviews are positive.

    Management is gossipy, my supervisor was honestly the worst boss I've ever had in this industry who would constantly lie, yell at employees in front of the office and I'm pretty sure she has no soul. They overload you with clients, when I left I had nine clients, and the turnover rate for them was unreal. Clients would consistently say they weren't getting their money's worth, and I agreed. The contracts they'd agree to would sign them up for outdated SEO and blogging practices and we'd get them nowhere. So in order to actually make a difference, guess what? We'd charge them more, and they'd get upset and leave. This happens constantly.

    The vibe in my office was toxic. Only about 20 employees and when new hires started management wouldn't even bother to introduce them around the office, leaving things as awkward as can be. This agency will continue to make money because of their sketchy new business practices and I met (some) nice people along the way.

    But overall this was the worst agency experience I ever had. I learned literally nothing, was constantly made to feel stupid, yelled at and talked down to constantly by a management team that couldn't deal with their own insecurities, told me I wasn't "enthusiastic enough" even though I'd work hard constantly and meet all client and internal expectations, while being subjected to listening to pop country music for eight hours a day. This place shatters confidence, uses scare tactics as a management style and is ripping off clients left and right.

    I have been working at Wpromote full-time

    Pros

    - Dress however you want
    - Dogs in the office
    - Catered meal options
    - Great training program, very organized and thorough
    - Flexible working schedule
    - Management cares
    - Clear cut growth path
    - Unlimited PTO (and they actually expect you to take time off, unlike most 'guilt PTO' environments)
    - They cater training and management to each person, and allow you to focus on your strengths

    Cons

    None other than those associated with working at an agency.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The only thing I would recommend is to make sure the offices outside of LA feel included.

    Pros

    Wpromote really strives to promote a healthy work-life balance amongst employees. Think unlimited PTO, flexible work from home policy, half days every other Friday during the summer, your birthday off, etc. Everyone at the company LOVES dogs, and a few locations are dog-friendly. Snacks, beer, games. But the biggest pro is the company culture. Management, at all levels, is very approachable and invested in each individual's experience with the company. They're constantly asking for feedback on how they can improve, and unlike a lot of companies they actually listen. My onboarding was a breeze, Lizzie is an amazing recruiter! I had always heard people talk about how much they love going to work every day, which made 0 sense to me until I started working at Wpromote.

    Cons

    Really can't think of any!

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees and doing what you're doing! It's working!

    Pros

    Coming from retail, this job is literally a dream come true. Any job can boast about paid holidays and weekends off in the marketing industry, but do they offer half day Fridays during the summer, a dog-friendly modern office space with ping pong, Friday night parties, huge events, amazing health benefits, free bagels on Fridays, free breakfast everyday of the week AND unlimited PTO? Wpromote offers all of that and more. And while sure, these perks are fun, what really matters is having a clear, cut path to grow and directors that want to help you reach your goals. It's an incredible company.

    Cons

    If there were any cons, they would be very minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! The HUGE changes in benefits, unlimited PTO, etc have been amazing!

    I worked at Wpromote full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Free/discounted food/wine/beer
    - Smart/good people
    - Dog-friendly

    Cons

    - Most people are severely over-worked
    - Lack of support
    - Company has outgrown current management

    Advice to Management

    Be a challenger agency internally. Going after large clients is great, but you need to have the right teams and structure in place to service them well.
