    I have been working at YPM

    Pros

    Office culture is very friendly and collaborative. Everyone knows your name and seems to care about each other. There is room for growth, especially in the Media Management department and I feel like I'm able to have a life outside of work, which is nice. Management has open communication and wants what's best for the company and employees. The company has strong values and takes the time to train employees. They set you up for success.

    Cons

    Overall, I have no complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing and keep the communication open.

    I worked at YPM full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work at if you're straight out of college and don't know any better about how a modern company in the 21st century is supposed to operate.

    Cons

    Professionals beware. This company supposedly prides itself on “having never laid off employees due to the economic recession.” However, they have zero problem with using California’s “at will” employment policy and terminating an employee with no real reason except to say “they’re going in a different direction.”

    No flex time. No opportunities to occasionally work from home (if you are ill) even though a lot of work is done online.

    Terrible, terrible management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to improve communication with employees. If performance needs improvement, let them know and give them the opportunity to improve. Don’t just let employees go without reason or cause.

    Unnecessary structure. Archaic dress codes, especially for employees who are not client-facing.

    Also, when you’ve got management constantly complaining about and making fun of the VPs and the CEO, it’s not a great work environment. Those was absolutely no feeling of teamwork in my department. Choose different leaders. Not people who aren't enthusiastic about the work they are doing.
