    I have been working at InnerWorkings full-time

    Pros

    Like any company you make friends with your respective team and coworkers, benefits are okay, they pay you on time (most of the time) - it's a job mostly

    Cons

    big disconnect between HQ and satellite offices, also most of upper management lives in a bubble with regards to financial hardships of employees, bonus structure is tailored in a way that makes it almost impossible to achieve (meaning no bonus for you), don't look for any reward for hardwork-it doesn't exist, and you should shudder at the mere mention of VALO

    I worked at InnerWorkings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Getting to work with fortune 500 clients, very cool spirits and beers brands. Compared to their competitors, InnerWorkings has, without a doubt, the best internal systems in place. While the tech can always use improvement, it's miles above companies that think they are in InnerWorkings league. Processes, for the most part, are locked in.

    Cons

    As with other companies in their industry, there are countless shortcomings. Here are a few... * Office culture varies wildly from location to location. * Depending on your office location, there is no real upwards mobility. * The sales force has little to no understand of the product(s) they are selling, which creates wildly uncomfortable situations when clients are on boarded under false pretenses. * The pay is minimal compared to their competitors. * There's no real interest to attract top talent. * Systems are constantly rolled out half baked.

    Advice to Management

    You are the best in the business. There's no doubt about that. But, if you do not pivot and decide to start attracting actual talent to every office, you are going to fall behind faster than you think. Summer hours and beer fridges do not replace higher and more livable salaries. Keep pushing the technology forward. Again, you are ahead of the competition, but they are snapping at your heals.

    Current Employee - Senior Production Manager in Cincinnati, OH
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I am part of a team onsite for a client in the Greater Cincinnati Area. Onboarding was very disjointed with HQ, but my team was extremely helpful. Management team is very approachable on all levels, and always willing to assist in any way possible. Flexible on time management/comp time/PTO.

    Cons

    A very big disconnect from the corporate HQ in Chicago. Company has a great culture, but it does not filter down to employees who work in the field. My team onsite is great. Health benefits are expensive and have a very high deductible before they cover any expenses.
