Great Place to Learn, Bad Place to Grow
Digital Strategist, Major Accounts & Agencies (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – May 17, 2017
I was a Digital Specialist, basically managing digital account.
The workload was unmanageable, handling over 100 account sometimes. The management was horrible. They were so rigid and unwilling to help. Their idea of help was adding more people to mix or making you look really stupid.
Majority of the time your "goals" were unrealistic and unattainable, so making extra money was a long shot.
The sales people are old and unwilling to change or even let you help them.
The best part of that company was the ad operations team. They were so good and so willing to help you get things done.
I learned a lot because of the fast-paced and cut throat environment, but overall I went home crying because of how stressed I was daily. They always tried to say we're a "team" but really I felt so alone in a pile of work. I worked there for 3 years and haven't had any desire to go back.
Many learning opportunities
High stress, high work load, have to pay for parking too ($60 per mo)
