Choose your 2nd option instead

Extremely toxic and doesn’t respect their employees and their needs. A lot of favoritism and cliques run the place. Be prepared for crippling anxiety and no work/life balance.

They talk a good talk. They do not deliver

The company touts their culture, including unlimited time off, really active and involved management. They say all thr right things. When it comes time to deliver, they fall short. Management ignores recommendations, instead going with whatever worked ten years ago. Managers from other teams will block you from doing your job. In the end, the company is toxic. Run, don't walk.


A lot of the people are great, They've attracted great talent, they have a pretty robust DE&I program, virtual work is great.


You can't use the unlimited vacation, They try to shoehorn buzzword technologies like AI in to everything that isn't appropriate, They cling to poor business practices, High attrition rates, mostly because of micromanagement.

Turn and burn.

What is the best part of working at the company?Pay and young leadership, not much red tape. Cult culture is strong.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Welcome to the grind. Many late hours, politics, young managers. Not what I was told it would be. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?You’re either you are in or you are out of the club.

It was cool at first but sucked in the end

It was ok at first but a lot of micro management started to occur. Impossible to get meetings to show. And commission leaves much to be desired. And to many calls to make everyday

Productive, Supportive, and Balanced

I have worked for C-4 for over 2 years. From the time I walked in to present the team, at all levels, has been welcoming and supportive. You have the opportunities to grow and develop throughout your career at C-4. We have an incredible DE&I Committee that has support from executive leadership on initiatives that they have identified. Their contributions are greatly valued across the organized the entire organization. There is an unlimited PTO benefit and managers encourage staff to take time off to recharge.


In addition to what I have already shared, C-4 fully pays for short term, long term, and group insurance for all benefit eligible employees.


If you enjoy fast paced work & incredible supportive people with paths for growth, C-4 has no cons that I can see.

Great culture and really nice people

Great work-life balance, the only reason I quit was that the work can be bland in an outdated industry like the automotive industry. Clients can also be really annoying at times but the nice ones are always nice to talk to.


No micro-management. Team is always supportive and the company has good culture.


Boring work in an outdated industry. Have to deal with a lot of annoying clients sometimes.

Best Product/Platform in the industry

Best staff and product in the automotive digital marketing space but unfortunately the two founders ruin whatever highlights there are. It's one thing to be a micro manager. It's another to be a jerk when doing it.


Best product and people in the business

Just too expensive to sell. High Turnover rate for DC's

Everything is scripted and everybody has to stick to the script. Sales quotas are impossible to achieve because the product is too expensive. Just to get in for a demo sometimes takes up to 60 calls per client. Lots of changes to a position they hire you for. For example, they say appointments are given during the hiring process but thats not true, after hiring they make you a glorified cheer leader making 40 calls a day and have stringent requirements to micromanage every single breath you take. And when it comes to really managing to close a DEAL, management disappears and hold YOU accountable for a lost opportunity. Big investment for customers to sign up to a loooog contract, even the sales people don't know what they are selling for that investment. If you are looking for a short period out of college employment join C-4.


unlimited PTO, company culture, diversity.


expensive product, micromanaging, too many changes in the company, too many hands involved to close a deal

Perfect job for someone right out of college

Learn as much as you can in your time there and then move on otherwise you will burn yourself out. Take advantage of the smart people there and give HR as much feedback as you can when you leave.

Fun workplace culture, frustrating and difficult job

This is a decent job for a recent college graduate. The workplace is mostly on the younger side and the workplace culture is pretty good. The benefits are mediocre (though they just instilled unlimited PTO) and the pay is decent. However, dealing with clients in the auto industry is where the tough part lies. Clients are highly demanding and more often than not, work comes home with you at the end of the day due to volume. Additionally, there needs to be more organization and structure within the company. There needs to be significant hiring across all departments in order to keep up with the demand of client work and needs. I was excited when I first started out, but after seeing the severe demands from clients and the disorganization of the company from a lack of manpower standpoint, it's become tiresome and unnecessarily stressful. Work/life balance is almost non-existent. Definitely not for everybody

Great Training, But They Will Squeeze The Life Out Of You

C-4 has a great training program and does a lot of things the right way when it comes to it's function as a digital marketing agency. What they do not do is have concern for the well-being of their employees. The opinions and concerns of the client are always more important to management than employees are. The lack of appreciation and compensation for the mid to lower level employees has become more and more evident as more and more people leave. These are not issues that are solved by free lunch once a week and a beer on Fridays. This is solved by not promising clients the world and expecting understaffed, under-compensated and overworked departments to be able to deliver.


Great training, hardworking employees


Low compensation for workload, favoritism

Great Account Management experience but not for everyone

Working in client services at this company, you get thrown into the deep end but get great hands-on experience with client management and solid training on the principles of digital marketing. But be prepared to only work with car dealerships and get lowballed on the starting salary. Mostly good people there.

Great place to work!

Great environment with opportunities for promotion! There are a few different offices around the country, but Boston office is the main HQ. Very laid back atmosphere with a really cool vibe.

Not the Best

Very stressful they do not care about you. They won't help you grow unless they like you and even if they do its still not that great. Be prepared to work really hard and not feel rewarded at all.

Incredible Place to Work

C-4 is an amazing place to work. The people are fantastic, the Culture is great and the work is rewarding. The company has nearly doubled in size in the last two years and the team is the best it's ever been. We get to work close with Google and test all the new products no one else even has access to. Its really fast paced and I'm proud that I get to work with the smartest people in the industry everyday.


Talented co-workers, above average Salary and benefits, but the best thing here is the people and the culture. Just a great place to work.


Not a con for me but it is very fast paced, Being on two floors is a disadvantage, Unlimitted work from home would be better.

Don't go into it blind

C-4 Analytics has a lot going for it - a healthy market, great employees and a business model that works on small-scale clients that other agencies don't want to deal with. Sadly, poor management is squandering all that. From the sudden micro-managing followed by silence for months, to the nearly constant stream of false promises and outright lies, they really just can't seem to get it - and they don't care as evidenced by their making the same choices over and over again. One quarter of the company's employees leave on an annual basis, which creates a vacuum of experience and industry knowledge. The latest streak of resignations is 9 in seven weeks. Low pay combined with lacking benefits and the aforementioned management issues ensure that few people stay for more than a year. As one of their most recently promoted account managers said, "It's like the battle of Iwo Jima. If you survive for one week you're promoted to Sergeant." Generally the mindset of employees is "If I can last for one year it won't look bad on my resume when I leave." If you accept a position, you can't claim you didn't get a fair warning.


Employment is "at will" so you can leave any time.


You'll want to leave after 3 months.

Lots of inconsistencies.

I couldn't stick it out a full year at C-4 Analytics-and I'm not the only one. There was a pretty high turn-over rate at the time that I left. The management style is awkward and ever-changing. The two owners disagree on many points and sometimes put the employees in the middle of their arguments. When I worked there, there were no benefits-no health insurance, no stock options, nothing. The best part of the job was lots of hands-on work. However, it was standard to put in 10-13 hour days, and sometimes work on weekends. With a fixed salary instead of hourly, this made work/life balance very hard. As an intern, you'd often do the real work full-time employees should be handling and (at the time) it was unpaid except maybe a small stipend. The coworkers were friendly enough though-they were easy to relate to and very nice and knowledgeable. The clients ranged from likeable to mean. So, all-in-all, you might consider it a typical agency.

Fun Culture and Serious Training

I was offered two different internships at Boston agencies and one in NY. I ended up going with C4 because I felt that I would get exposed to many different areas of digital marketing. I was right. C4 is a group of really, really smart individuals and while I can honestly say that it is actually fun to work there, let me tell you, they mean business. They are really focused on their clients and I watched them consistently get their client's website to the first place of Google over and over again. I got really good hands on training that I don't think that I could anywhere else. I also got to attend some client meetings although I didn't get to present anything. I really learned a lot, but they expect a lot out of you too. Everyone who works there seems to love it, and they do hire some of their interns. If you can get in there, I would say go for it.


actually learn real seo, attend client meetings, awesome people


all interns need to get analytics certified from google (although they do pay for it)

As Good As It Gets

I've been working at C-4 Analytics for a few years and I love where I work! It's a typical agency, however your work does get noticed. It's a small company, so you know everybody who works there and the work environment is pretty open, but that keeps all of us sane, as everyone is pretty cool.The clients are great, and we have a lot of fun thinking up unique strategies. Nobody says no to any ideas we have. Best part is, we get really good results. That makes my job really easy.

Productive Work Environment

There is a great team at C-4 Analytics. All of the employees are very easy to work with and present a challenging environment. I learned much more then most interns would in the SEO industry. Unfortunately, it is a start-up agency and the salary compensation is not adequate.


free lunches, good work environment


low salary
