    Pros

    Worked with Wpromote for about 2 and a half years and have yet to meet a closer knit group of people to work with. Great perks, good environment, and a lot of fun to be had

    Cons

    - A little cookie cutter at times work wise - Work can pile up quickly - Clients can present difficult problems

    Pros

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

    I worked at Wpromote full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Wpromote is a fun, savvy, and predominantly young company. You'll learn a ton and mostly have fun while working. The benefits are great, and there's a TON of talented smart people to learn from. That said - the Los Angeles office is the office to be if you have a choice. The other offices (Chicago and the newly acquired other offices) are all going through growing pains and will take time to reach the level L.A. is...

    Cons

    There's questionable leadership depending on the service you go into. Furthermore, workloads are poorly managed and many employees fly under the radar so you could either work 2 hour days or 11 hour days depending on your service and location. Finally, like any agency, it's playing the game (so to speak) that will get you ahead. Know that you will be judged just as much, if not more, by how well you deal with others...

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on skill and not time worked. Also, take cues from well-run departments and apply them across the services instead of completely segmenting and separating each channel. People from SMB should teach people in PPC, SEO, and so on. In my time there it felt more departments were competiting with one another more so. *To be fair, a lot of the team building activities they've developed do not stretch well...

    Wpromote is a fun, social company full of happy employees! Wpromote strives to be a leader in digital marketing and succeeds in evolving with technology. This company is ideal for newer marketers looking for agency experience and the opportunity to work on campaigns for a wide variety of companies. Wpromote offers an ultra-flexible schedule including work from home privileges and a dog-friendly campus. They also offer...

    Cons

    Initial salary offers are below the market average, but talented workers are rewarded fairly with raises and a clear path for promotion within the organization. Also, Wpromote hires many employees who are fresh out of college and promotes primarily from within, so this may not be a good culture fit for older workers.

    Advice to Management

    In certain departments, it seems as though friendship and seniority play a disproportionate role in promotions, as compared to merit, diligence, and leadership ability. Playing favorites doesn't attract and retain top talent - consider reevaluating Director roles for those who are underqualified and clearly apathetic.

    Pros

    Return on Performance: Wpromote evaluates all employee input and recommendations based on performance. If you have an idea on how to improve things and you can present a reasonable case there is a very high likelihood of it being implemented. I have never worked with a more open-minded company that places such a high value on employee feedback. People: I love the people here. On my first day I shook 126 peoples hands...

    Cons

    Challenge: If you don't enjoy being challenged and made to prove your value then working at Wpromote will be very uncomfortable. There is really no where to hide in the company if you are not willing to improve your knowledge and skills. Accountability: Individual employees are reviewed monthly and there is a goal setting session every six months. I was shocked coming from a more lax work environment. Pace: The...
