Creative Director (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – May 7, 2017
Agency is becoming more traditional and almost restricted to TV. It has few capabilities for the future, or even the present in advertising. If they are offering you a good pay hike or increase a title you can get anywhere else, then maybe worth it for a couple years before moving on.
Going backwards, Highly political, Layoffs almost every 16-22 months
A day work can consist of changing bulbs to painting walls or cleaning window storm shelters also a day in the warehouse can consist of taking leaking bags of damaged boxes and re boxing new boxes most of the co workers where good workers they worked very hard and were deadicated the hardest part was stacking the boxes the most enjoyable part was that there was a lot of team work
Nice people as soon as I walked in. Can't say there was a typical day because each day varied from the different things the lead person would tell you. The hardest part of the job was to stand still in one place with no range of motion. The most enjoyable part was knowing that someone was going to benefit from what I was producing.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – February 11, 2015
This job was in an advertising company is a major city. The job itself was fine as well as my manager and coworkers but the atmosphere was not what I ever pursued again. Working in a large firm was not comfortable.
Founding a new PR division with existing advertising agency
President of PUBLIC RELATIONS (Boston) (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 16, 2014
Was brought in to save a number of accounts which were on the verge of leaving. Managed to save most but not all, Ad side felt competitive with PR side and they saw a continual fight for $ between the two divisions. We finally broke off the PR division as a separate entity and did much better after that.
Supervisor/Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Midland, MI – July 2, 2013
Everyday is a new day whether its getting a new eval or trading someone to do anothers areas job. I learned there is always a way for someone with a disability to do a job any job. I started where they had them just tear sheets of computer paper on a daily basis to seeing that individual doing a piece paid job sometimes with or without a "jig". I have worked with many outside in a laundry business and they worked their hardest and enjoyed the experience they were granted. The hardest part of the job is hearing that someone passed away. You get attached to all of them, they are like your family in a way. The most rewarding is seeing their eyes light up when they get their paycheck it may be under $1.oo or alittle higher. They taught me some many wonderful things. I learned to work with all kinds of people and focus on their needs to succeed in their job skills, and what it takes to help them overcome that hurdle. Management was ok there, main two bosses for the shop floor were fantastic, caring people who had fun and ideas.
caring for others and working with them to succeed
