I do not have any comments to share that are negative. Triad Retail Media has given me a great foundation and I am thankful for the relationships I have been able to build. There are not advancement opportunities at the company at this time; therefore I would like to explore other options.
Senior Front-End Developer (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – August 8, 2016
The amount of work could be quite variable, in fact I was held to account when I didn't have work even after seeking it out. My interactions with co-workers varied. Those whom I actually work with were always quite good and everyone was pleased with my work. However, I didn't interact socially with co-workers and those whom I didn't work with would constantly complain about how I was not overwhelmed as they were. I would hear their frequent non-work related conversations but they would complain about my surfing the internet.
Accounts Manager (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – December 15, 2015
I was trained there for nearly a year and was doing quite well as an account manager for the Toys R Us team. I was brought in just before their busiest time of the year so it was a trial by fire. I did a great job and was told so. Never any complaints about my work, came in early, stayed late, and did good work and received commendation from my supervisor. When my sales lead quit to move out of state, they figured it was better to let me go than it was to hire a new sales lead, and fired me without warning. When I asked the reason why I was told, "reorganization of the company" was the reason.... but it was obvious what the real reason was.
Constant challenge and never a dull day
No problems letting go of good employees for financial reasons
Account Director (Former Employee) – New England – May 11, 2015
I didn't work their for very long, and my entire experience was a good one. I worked remotely from my team, but I felt connected and supported by them every day. I had one of the best bosses I've ever had that never made me feel stupid for asking what may have been seen as a simple question. I had concerns about how certain areas of the business were managed, they seemed over invested into, which impacted the pricing we offered to clients.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – February 18, 2015
Unfortunately, the training process is not really a process at all. Seasoned team leads are resentfully forced to train new hires. However, they lack the experience and lack the patience to actually train; so brief directions are usually insufficient or open to interpretation allowing for errors.
This can be a great place to learn and grow, if you're lucky enough to be placed around seasoned team members that are patient, empathetic and collaborative.
Management is hands-off and relies on others to manage without checking them or evaluating them by other means.
Bi-yearly company parties, intelligent peers, standard benefits
Poor training, extreme workload, unrealistic expectations for new employees
Under production management (Former Employee) – Tampa – August 5, 2014
For the most part a great company. I would have liked to see employees be able to review their managers/executives. Some senior/executive management could use some better people skills vs. sitting in a office all day contributing hardly anything while everyone else does the work.
Accounting (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 17, 2014
This was a fun place to work. It was purchased by Rockbridge in January 2013. Soon after I know of a handfull of people who were let go just before the company moved from Westshore in Tampa to Clearwater. Now there is new accounting software (Great Plains) and Accounting has been brought in house (before it was outsourced). The employees and management are all very nice and the work environment was interesting and fun. It is a fast paced company that does internet marketing for national companies like Walmart, Ebay, Toys R Us, and Sears. Very creative people working there.

Creative (Former Employee) – Tampa – September 24, 2012
Triad offers some attractive positives - smart, talented coworkers, opportunity to expand your skills and work with national brands; however, the complete lack of organization and nonsensical priority-setting makes for a truly chaotic, stressful work-life. This is from a creative perspective. For sales and other departments it might not be the the same.
Everything seems to be an emergency (for jobs involving the creative folks at least). You might stay late every day for projects that never come to fruition. That said, working among other fun, creative people has its merits. I can't say I would recommend this company to a friend or family member, though.
very ceative environment
deadlines are sales-driven without thought to the creative team, who end up having to scramble to make things happen while the sales team goes home.
