Liberal Work Environment. Unchallenging Projects.
Artist (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXOctober 1, 2017
The good stuff: All the typical work benefits.
Pretty positive work environment (Co-workers are easy to work with and respect each other.)
Lots of fun work sponsored activities scheduled routinely.
Free snacks and coffee.
Overall good morale.

The bad stuff: The work is not all that challenging.
Unrealistically short production times are common.
Creative ideas are too often disregarded for "safe" design.
My boss has little respect for our opinions and is consistently disrespectful of his employees.

Great place to be (Lakewood Office)
Production Technology Developer (Current Employee) –  Lakewood, COFebruary 13, 2017
I've loved working here, even though the pay-scale (for my profession, at least) isn't quite up to industry standards. It's a fun place, and they truly care about their people — to the point that in the round of layoffs and position-closures that impacted me, they paid for job-search assistance for anyone who was willing to take them up on it.

They are, perhaps, not a good long-term job-prospect if you're being hired during an upswing in clients and associated work — As an ad-agency, the volatility of clients, work, etc., may well mean that if a client they acquired before one's starting to work here jumps ship, your position may well end up on the chopping-block.

That said, if the volatility is something you can live with, it's an *outstanding* place to be.
Pros
Covered parking, Christmas/New-Year's break, Good PTO, Some discounts on various clients' products, Anniversary PTO
Cons
Very volatile based on client churn

Great company to work for.
Account Director, MillerCoors Marketing Operations (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, COJanuary 6, 2017
I loved working at The Integer Group. There is a great culture and you are given the opportunity to work independently and as part of a team. The people are what make Integer a great place to work.
Pros
Lots of fun activities that keep the culture alive. Talented people.
Cons
Losing a lot of business lately.

Culture is a marketing word, not a reality.
employee (Current Employee) –  Lakewood, COOctober 12, 2016
Majority of leadership has led at one place, Integer. Truly don't know anything but. So don't come here to learn from above or have any mentorship or gained experience from anywhere but Integer.

When a company grows and a common issue is, "They don't know that they don't know.", well that is a flaw.

Fine place to get some starter niche marketing knowledge on consumers. But again, just beware the level of experience leading the company. Again, many started (and will end) their management careers there, so not much variety of agency leadership can be expected.
Pros
pays the bills
Cons
leadership, losing clients, layoffs, personality over performance culture

Don't go here
Account Managment (Current Employee) –  DenverOctober 9, 2016
A company that's lost more than 50% of its revenue in the past 2 years.

Management that's just walking around the halls waiting to retire.

A total lack of culture, spirit, or gumption for necessary change.

Layoffs. Lots of layoffs.
Pros
Come in at 9, leave at 5 and you're still considered a hard worker
Cons
Everything

No longer a great place
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, COSeptember 18, 2016
The company used to be a fun place to work but has gotten too corporate. New Director with a "do things my way" attitude & if you do not fit in as their "type of employee" you're out the door. Will work you raw and the only thing you'll get is a thank you. No raises!!! Company going downhill. No longer a great place to work.
Pros
Christmas week off
Cons
Management, no raises

Very busy work place
Creative Director/3d Designer (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, COJune 6, 2015
Typical day at work was 9 hours equaling meetings, consulting, and designing. I learned as companies get larger they sometime lose site of their initial goal(s). This mainly applies to the management. Co-worker were Great! Finding the time to balance work vs personal.
Most enjoyable was providing solutions to a problem, and interacting with others.
Pros
Professional freedom to be responsible.
Cons
Vacation time flexibility

World class ad agency with a field organization that is second to none.
Pacific Region Director (Current Employee) –  Roseville, CAMarch 1, 2015

Pros
World class agency with smart and experienced personnel. Strong leadership at the top.
Cons
Staff is thin. Committed to a complicated process

Excellent culture but resources are over burdened.
Director (Former Employee) –  Des Moines, IAOctober 21, 2014
The Integer Network has many positive attributes working for it and this includes the Des Moines office. The network itself is beginning to understand how best to harness a "network" approach rather than letting each office manage a unique set of resources.

Having written that, this office seems to be more focused on customer service than it is proactive account planning. As a result, resource management is often strained.
Pros
Culture, beer, social activities, family environment
Cons
long hours and some dysfunction

Great agency with wonderful people and culture.
Regional Account Director (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHSeptember 30, 2013
The Integer Group is an incredible place to work. Integer positions itself at the "intersection of branding and selling." The agency takes a lot of pride in delivering best-in-class service to their client partners. Integer has a fun, collaborative culture that causes a number of former employees to return (they are nicknamed "boomerangers").
Pros
Strong management, great people, fun culture.
Cons
Demanding clients.

Great culture and perks to the job.
Executive Assistant/Office Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 25, 2013
Integer is a great place to work with a fun culture and fun clients.

A typical work day could be anything from supply orders, calendar scheduling, hosting client meetings, beer tastings to team outings and everything in between.

My co-workers are a close group who socialize outside of the work place and are all friends. Great group of people.

Hardest part of the job is stocking the beer fridge.

Most enjoyable part of the job is the freedom and fun a small office brings versus a large company where you get lost in the shuffle.
Pros
Numerous team outings, great clients, lots of free lunches, small office.
Cons
Compensation is very low in this industry.

Typical large agency, though with good education opportunities
Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, COJanuary 28, 2013
This is your typical large agency - the largest in Denver. As with other large agencies, there is a lot of bureaucracy and "do-anything-to-appease-the-client" attitude.
Pros
many internal educational opportunities, people are pretty nice, causal office
Cons
management will throw people under bus to appease clients. spoiled clients run the show here.
