Account Supervisor- Ford Service National (Former Employee) – Dearborn, MI – May 16, 2016
I enjoyed the culture and team I worked with, however the abundance of process leads to inefficiencies and bottlenecks in workflow. There needs to more flexibility in process when proposing a rational recommendation to keep projects on task.

Senior Vice President, Managing Director (Former Employee) – Dearborn, MI – March 21, 2016
The most enjoyable part of the job at Team Detroit was the space that my direct supervisor gave me to do the job. Hand in hand with the autonomy was also the accountability for achieving the desired results. This mix of personal accountability and autonomy cascaded throughout my team.
Manager (Former Employee) – Dearborn – December 4, 2015
While the work/life balance is nice and the culture is unique in a good way, the management team often seems more concerned with agency politics than their clients or employees. This is unfortunate, because otherwise Team Detroit is an exciting place to work.
Marketing and Advertising is a creative, fast paced, team evironment with many benefits and encourages work/life balance
Team Coordinator (Current Employee) – Dearborn, MI – August 18, 2015
Creative and fun with many benefits, including encouragement for a work/life balance. Many training opportunities available through online classes, group lectures and off-site training sessions. There is a considerable amount of red tape and politics, which does not differ from any large company.
Training, professionally friendly environment, work/life balance, recognition program, and opportunities to grow.
Digital Production Artist (Former Employee) – Dearborn, MI – June 15, 2015
While the team I was placed with was shown to be helpful and patient, and while the environment itself was fast-paced and inspirational in visual decor, my supervisors were sadly stretched too thin to provide the direction and/or feedback which would have helped me to grow as a digital designer.
Jr. Project Manager (Current Employee) – Dearborn, MI – July 8, 2014
Work with some great and talented people. Work-life-balance it good with lots of time off during the holidays. It's a nice atmosphere, with ping-pong tables and visiting bands. The hardest part of the job as an entry level employee is the feeling of not being compensated fairly for the work your doing. Still, I would say the most enjoyable part of the job is the people and knowing that the experience I'm gaining is invaluable.
Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) – Dearborn, MI – June 11, 2014
Team Detroit was one of the best experiences in my career. Had a downfall in the Automotive Industry not occurred I would have continued there indefinitely. There was career planning and mentors that worked with you. Starting in the Production and completing in the Account arena were great moves that showed me a broad view of Advertising.
Content Factory (Former Employee) – Dearboring – May 2, 2014
The so-called grunts are a great group of people to work with and around but the best way to think of Team Detroit is as the place you will work before you get a real job. Team Detroit leadership is basically a puppet for "the client" -- and in most cases that means Ford. They will do ANYTHING to keep "the client" happy...regardless of impact on the actual human workers. And because companies like Ford have a contract with Team Detroit, you better smile and say your "please" and "thank you" to the Ford employees because they can terminate your contract at any time for any reason, including speaking up if you ask to get paid for all of the overtime hours you will almost certainly be asked to "donate." "The client" is well aware of this, of course, which is why this system is used in the first place. So, yes, sure, when you walk into the buildings in the parking lot of Fairlaine Mall you will likely be impressed by all of the shine...they have ALLL the amenities a company in the Aughts was required to have to win over younger folk...the real problem though is when you sit down to do your actual job and have to work for the older folk trying to stay employed until they're 65.
Close to a few good restaurants
So many...try your best to avoid working here and you will be happy
