Upon being hired I was promised a certain amount of hours, Once i began to work I was only working approximately 12 to 15 hours a week. I resigned from my full time job to take that position. I was mislead and very disappointed.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the people that hired and managed me. The workplace culture is inconsistant and not very responsive when trying to move up. Talent is not used but frowned upon when one isnt hired from corporate.
Marketing (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 2, 2018
the Chicago office is a joke. Senior management including the president has no real idea how to run an agency and tend to to just go with the wind. There’s no real leadership or direction - it’s as if they are constantly throwing darts hoping one will stick. The experiential side of fine however as it relates to the other half, wouldn’t at consider this a digital marketing agency.
Compensation, leadership is extremely poor, no real direction or strategy on where the company is and should go.
Account Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 10, 2017
I liked working here for my first year out of two, but there was not much room for advancement and management does not notice potential. Compensation is also very poor. The culture is awesome though, a lot of nice and outgoing and fun people.
A typical day at work started at 9 am and ended at 10pm. I would get in early in the morning to get one on one time with my manager of assistant manager and talk about what I can do better to grow or to strengthen my weakness. I would help my assistant manager with preliminary interviews and prepare for work shops for the new hires or employees that are still in training. For new employees work started at 12pm until 9pm but for the ones that wanted to build a management team to get promoted, the day started earlier. Our work environment was a positive and fun work place. That's the reason why I enjoyed working there. As co-workers we all had our difference but those difference is what helps out in carrying our sales. We worked as a team and help each other out. The hardest part of my job was that it took all of my time, so I wasn't able to have a personal live or to even spent time with my family and daughter. I learn a lot droning the time I was working with Legacy Marketing since it was a job and a program that lead to management. I was exposed to the bigger side of our company and the sacrifice it took to get to the top. I was able to run the office when my managers where out for business and over see the employees as well with keeping track of our production for the day and the remaining of the week.
