Good job for young professionals coming out of college
a liaison between the client and Retail Tech (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLAugust 10, 2018
After paying my dues for 2 years at the organization, was laid off due to loss of business. Ultimately, the top people in the organization are taken care of. The newer employees are constantly circulating.
Pros
Good experience
Cons
no ability to advance within the company

Great Experience, Horrible Management
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLAugust 7, 2018
Management is built on the "bully mentality" across the entire agency, from the top-down. Moral is EXTREMELY low all of the time with failed promises.

Will say it has been the best career experience I have ever had, but I cannot imagine having children and working at a place like this.

Opportunity for growth and advancement is talked about but never acted on. Money is literally poverty line degrading to those working 60+ hr work weeks.
Pros
Peer Employees are great
Cons
So.Many.Things.

Great company to start at
Retail Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLAugust 2, 2018
But...They will work you to death for such low pay! The lowest of the lowest in the industry. It's hard to catch a break or even go on vacation without having to be bothered. I was always afraid of taking time off because you are given the guilt trip. Hard work with barely any compensation especially for the account team. Luckily, I had the most amazing coworkers which kept me afloat there.

Challenging environment but a supportive management/culture
VP/Account Director (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJune 19, 2018
I was part of a start up account team so the hours were long but the management support was strong. They have a 24/7 work culture that does make for a difficult work/life balance and as a result, turnover is high.

It's not for everyone.
Creative Services (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLMay 29, 2018
Zimmerman's HR department is pretty straight forward when they say, "It's not for everyone." This very true. The company can be a difficult place to endure as it is notoriously demanding and has no respect for work / life balance. That being said, it is for some. If you have talent, are willing to take the abuse and can establish yourself as indispensable there is tremendous opportunity for growth. Aside from that there are not a lot of pros. The culture is anxious and aggressive and the benefits are so so at best.
Pros
Job Security
Cons
Poor management, Work/Life Balance, Expensive Family Health Insurance

A great place to gain experience, not so much to earn a living however
Worker (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLApril 2, 2018
You will learn so many different things at Zimmerman, that if they just simply paid people what they deserved, they would probably stay forever. You are hands on with so many different marketing tools and projects that you will get lost in the opportunity/possibilities. But then you'll go home to either your parents house or your one bedroom shack, because you won't be able to afford to live or do anything.

This is why the turnover rate is so high after one year.
Pros
Great work experience, Nice people
Cons
Quick-paced, Low Pay - did I say low pay?

Wouldn't recommend if you're seeking longevity wit a company
Social Media Coordinator (Intern) (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLMarch 27, 2018
Wouldn't recommend if you're seeking longevity with a company. They don't offer you much time to pick up on their extremely fast-paced toss up work environment.

This was a face pace environment
Web Designer (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLMarch 4, 2018
A typical day was to produce about 30 flash banner ads, email campaigns and landing pages.

Management was productivity focused. Workplace culture was work hard and play hard. I really enjoyed the camaraderie of the design team.
Pros
They provided free dinners when we had to do overtime
Cons
It could get very tense at times

Zimmerman Doesn't Care About You
Jr. Account Executive - Product Specialist (Current Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLFebruary 17, 2018
Zimmerman managing team doesn't care about their employees. They work us to the bone and don't pay us fairly, while the top dogs are making 6 figures and there 2 or 3 days a week. Does that sound fair to you?

The biggest plus of this agency is the people. You will make the greatest friends on the planet working here. I wouldn't trade that for the world.

Forget Work Life Balance
Digital Client Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJanuary 29, 2018
Be prepared to do 6 peoples jobs, understand clients are told they have 20+ people working on their account when really its more like 3, so the demands of clients will always be greater than the output you can achieve, even if you work 12+ hours each day.

Stay away from this place, its TOXIC.
Pros
can help launch your career as its all about the name on your resume
Cons
everything else, place is toxic, people are cut throat

Very stressful environment
Video Editor / Motion Graphics Designer (Current Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJanuary 27, 2018
Fast paced advertising company which motto is "you sleep when you die" . Forget about personal life, you live for the company and it is not appreciated at all. Salary is unfair.

Great Start to your Career
Nissan Production Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJanuary 4, 2018
Zimmerman is where you go to gain experience and then leave. The work culture is awful and there is no such thing as work/life balance. Zimmerman becomes your only life.
Pros

Cons
long hours, horrible pay

Great Job Culture - Awful Management
Art Director (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLDecember 22, 2017
Zimmerman will quickly grow on you because luckily the people there quickly become really good friends, and will help you adjust to your position. The work environment and culture truly is strong and a place where you enjoy being. The building and facilities itself are super nice and comfortable to be in. However, it is the complete opposite when it comes to your work managers and the work you have. There is no real organization on title management there. A Junior could be doing a Senior job and still gets paid junior position and there are Directors sitting there doing nothing all day and getting paid 6 figures. There are plenty of talented leaders but they are too caught up in their egos they forget how to lead. Overall, there isn't much room to grow in the company, unless you are completely lucky, which doesn't create a fair process for everyone. The work you will create is nothing creative, you have no creative freedom - Zimmerman does not value the aesthetics only wants to work to be done fast.

Too many hours, too little pay
Social Media Specialist (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLOctober 30, 2017
I loved working here at the beginning. Big company, lots of smart and beautiful people. But they penny pinch employees and have you working the job of 2-3 people if they say you show "potential." They expect you to live with your laptop chained to your wrist and be available "24/7 seriously" for low pay.
Pros
Exciting atmosphere, food truck Fridays
Cons
Long hours, Low pay, too many middle managers
