    I worked at Ivie full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Culture is good, PTO decent, benefits decent

    Cons

    Lie to you about what they do when interviewing, a trap run. no transferrable skills I lasted a very short time and it was okay until I realized this job is soooo easy and provides no growth. There are not any transferrable skills for when you decide to leave this place. You do the same exact thing 24/7 this job will suck your life. There is nothing beneficial to this job, what skills? Vlookup, pivot tables, thats nothing. You will not gain anything from this company if you’re happy with doing the same mundane routine weekly for a decent pay check do it. Also management sucks butt I only had 2 managers I actually liked because they hated their job too. People who come here already hate themselves and want to run. So take my advice RUN dont take this job after graduating college or after gaining experience because all that sh!t you learned is thrown away to do basic bull crap daily.

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

    Pros

    Unfortunately, none. And I thought about trying to find something positive for at least a good minute.

    Cons

    I don't even know where to start. It was so bad. Basically, it's a place of "white, rich men" with multiple layers of VPs and Directors who exist only for the sake of having a title. The IQ of the whole upper management combined is probably 2 and that's if you're being generous. There was literally a director whose day was filled by hiding in non-existant meetings and wandering around the building pretending to be "so busy". It was laughable. Yeah, all you need to do here is pretend that you are busy. No real knowledge or experience or wisdom that you can find here. It's not a real concept. Overall they are just bad people on an ego trip. The level of entitlement and incompetence is out of this world. Don't waste your time. I didn't learn anything during my time here. Only how to clean other peoples messes. The culture is forced and awkward.

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

    Pros

    Great company with a CEO who really seems to care about his employees and their happiness. The Media Buying team required fast-paced workers who are self-starters and extremely driven; luckily those are all things that motivated me to go the extra mile every day! I miss that job every day; the only reason I left was due to my husbands relocation.

    Cons

    The media buying team desperately needed to hire someone new. Within working there for under a year they almost tripled my original work load with no added benefits or compensation. Luckily I loved what I did so it didn't bother me much.

    "A High Pressure Job and a Learning Opportunity"

    I worked at Ivie full-time

    Pros

    I worked with a great team for the majority of my time there and genuinely liked my co-workers. Everyone was willing to help, and if you don't have that-- this job will be extremely difficult. We laughed a lot and catered lunches were plenty. This can be a great learning opportunity as it inadvertently teaches you a lot a managing your time, following process, communicating to other teams, translating ambiguous data, accuracy, and a lot of other valuable skills. The high-pressure nature of the job will prepare you for pretty much anything afterwards, if you stick it out. It's a rough job, but it's a real learning experience. Doing good work was generally recognized and I was always encouraged to be creative. If you want to change your title and you're doing good work, it was usually an open conversation. In addition, the manager is great at recognizing birthdays and holidays, and was generally willing to do any task if there's no one there to do it. Also, unlimited candy and snacks-- always a plus.

    Cons

    You'll be working in an old building, around a lot of construction. Inside, despite the title, and pay, this is not an easy or entry-level job. A lot of people don't last a year either because they quit, or get fired. You'll be making circular ads that are released every single week-- this means workflow is fairly consistently heavy. There will be late nights. Leaving on time sometimes means consciously letting your team down. If you fall behind on your work, it is noticed and called out pretty quickly. When I left, the director was notorious for literally watching for who wasn't on task. Phones became a privilege that not all people had. Whether you're director or designer, you'll have to work years, and years, and move up several levels to make the same pay you'd make anywhere else under the same title-- this makes all of the above so much more heavy. This is a stressful job and everyone is stressed out. Not everyone handles this stress well.
