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
great creative employees, cool office, vacation time
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

Media (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJuly 24, 2017
Employer has stability, as you know your job will always be there. However, there is no work life balance. Those who work hard are often times given more work to pick up the slack for those who dont.

24/7 Literally
Associate Director (Current Employee) –  Miami-Dade County, FLJuly 3, 2017
24/7 literally is their tag line and they make sure they honor it. Be ready to work around the clock. They don't care about families or sick people. You are expected to answer emails at 12am and pull reports on Sundays if they just ask for it ( no need, no urgency they would just like to see..becuase they can't wait until Monday for some reason!)
Pros
employees get clients' dicounts
Cons
management, work/life balance, wack expectations

In a word, Aweful Experience
Media (Former Employee) –  DallasJune 29, 2017
There is no work/life balance. The pay and benefits at terrible. No one seems happy. It's really not an ad agency. Some of the people are so beat down that they seem strange. Atypical day was chaos and useless meetings that got cancelled or stopped abruptly. I didn't really learn anything new. Management was never around, came in late, left early. There is no culture. The hardest part of the job was getting anyone to answer a question without seeming annoyed. There was nothing enjoyable.

Great and Fun Place!
Paralegal/Legal Assistant (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLMay 23, 2017
I loved working at this extremely fun place, and made lifelong friends here.
This field taught me how to work under extreme pressure and multi-task.
It was the perfect balance of fun and work.
