I worked at iCrossing full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Smart coworkers. Interesting client brands. Locked down process/operations. Good work/life balance and compensation.

Cons

This is a company that's all about the rational, not the emotional. There is no equilibrium in rational/emotional thought, and it affects the agency's output.

So-so creative. Deep, back end-centric client work. Little progressive front-end customer experience. Boys club exec team (i.e. Not a meritocracy). Smart, progressive co-workers feeding outside the iCrossing boys club end up leaving, because there is no alternative.

    Pros

    Nothing positive, except working within the Hearst tower

    Cons

    Horrible management, Don scales needs to be replaced and get someone that can work with people and will take constructive criticism
    He is way out of control and show favoritism . He is totally incapable , cannot take criticism in any level.
    Totally Narcissitic behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop all the drinking binges and partying and get down to running a company
    Stop promoting people, just to play favorites.
    Get rid of don scales

    I have been working at iCrossing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    iCrossing still has many top tier clients (probably not for much longer). If you can manage to work on some of the bigger accounts, it will be great for your resume, just not your long term career. There are still some smart people there too, especially in the SEO and Analytics departments from whom you can learn a lot but their numbers are shrinking fast.

    Cons

    Cronyism and gross incompetence at the highest levels and a relentless focus on securing bonuses for the most senior management. Not to mention a highly toxic work environment in every single office. More of a multi-level marketing scheme than an advertising agency. If you are just out of college and looking to gain some entry level experience for a year in SEM or SEO, it might be worth it. If you are mid-career or higher, stay far, far away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The current management is incapable of taking advice, hence all their problems.
