OK Place to work. Annalect has much growing to do.
Confidential (Current Employee), New York, NY – March 11, 2015
OK Place to work. Benefits are good. Nice time off package. Lots of creative and smart minds. Some work/life balance. Many data smarties.
HOWEVER, Annalect has much growing to do. They keep pivoting on solutions and services, which creates havoc both within the team and in client perception - how can we compete like this? Lots of attrition due to uncertainty about where this place is headed.
One of the biggest downfalls is that there are many bullies without a cause. Some are really unprofessional and insensitive towards diverse individuals. Managers receive no management training and have no managerial experience which is also why there is so much attrition. Senior Leadership is clueless as to the pulse of the staff and in nearly 7 months since a problem was identified, have done nothing to handle the staffing issues. There are more directors then there is staff to do actual work - most of these directors should be analysts because of lack of experience - again, many are just plain bullies who need to flex elbows to feel like work will be done and respect will be given to them. Sad.
On the flip-side, there is lots of potential - hopefully it won't be too late.

Pros: enrichment webinar courses
Omnicom is a great company. A typical work day is very busy. Each employee has to know how to work independently and communicate well with clients and team.
Management is well structured and the company provides enrichment webinar courses for each employee. The hardest part of the job is not knowing when to take a break; sometimes one can skip lunch unconsciously because he or she is consumed with the work flow and meetings.
The most enjoyable part of the job is helping to service the clients and working with the team who has as much dedication as you.
