    I have been working at Vibrant Media full-time

    Pros

    I have been working at Vibrant for nearly 3 years and it's one of the best jobs I've ever had! Not only have I learnt a lot but I have met some really great people in my time here too. Everyone is willing to help each other out and we have a lot of fun in the process. There are some really cool projects on the horizon also, which make it a really exciting time to be part of a Global team. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the next 6 months or so.

    Cons

    Nothing really to note

    I worked at Vibrant Media full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good employee benefits Lively working environment

    Cons

    There were quite a few cuts to the tech team and seeing as it was a tech company it was rather odd, especially at a time when the tech manpower was needed

    I worked at Vibrant Media full-time

    Pros

    I worked with some fantastic people during my time there. In particular across the the campaign management and tech teams. They were efficient and helpful with a great work ethic.

    Cons

    Having worked there for a number of years, I was hurt, to say the least, at how attitudes changed towards me once I announced my pregnancy. I was berated for coming in late after having been extremely ill despite having contacted my boss and HR to let them know I would be half an hour late. I was then not invited to various meetings and pretty much excluded. It was made clear that someone else on another team was going to be taking my role and I should hand everything over to her as quickly as possible. I eventually took this to HR, which I should have done sooner. I am only writing this so other women can take this in to consideration when applying for this company.

    I have been working at Vibrant Media full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people are great to work with and the environment is also really good, quite Vibrant (excuse the punt), a lot of space and a terrace to hang around during lunch or evening shall we want to. It is getting much better than it used to be (2-3 years ago), no more hierarchy, flatter structure because they trust employees to step up and progress. I read previous reviews about “who shouts the loudest”, this definitely doesn’t feel like it applies nowadays. If you’re showing and proving you want to work toward achieving the business goals you will be rewarded for it. I have been promoted and felt it was justified without having to demand it. We also just went to Ibiza this year on a company trip for three days, all paid for, the whole European team was invited, one of the best hotels I stayed at, great team to hang around, had so much fun, and it really did not feel like going to a work conference. In a nutshell: Great people to work with Collaborative teams Beer Fridays, snacks, soft drinks. Decent amount of annual leave Ping pong table Executives – Open door policy No red tape Flexibility

    Cons

    Would be great to finish earlier than 6pm

    I worked at Vibrant Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    At first was a great work life balance, interesting people, motivated, exciting. It WAS definitely an amazing place to work and learn. The people made the company and drove it to excel.

    Cons

    Lack of direction from management, no idea how the market is moving. Terrible decisions from the then CEO which was catastrophic for the business as a whole and lead to the company spiraling downwards. Terrible hires at the top which sapped money, resources and time. Lots of talking big but no real action. Got rid of half the company in routine purges from departments which were lacking in people anyways. Management thought that everything could be solved by getting rid of those who questioned the direction of the company but just lead to the best and the brightest either being fired or leaving of their own accord.

    I worked at Vibrant Media full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The culture at the 'shop floor' level is great. People are very sociable and willing to help each other out.

    Cons

    There is no leadership from the CEO or senior management. The company is obviously facing some hard times at the moment; the CEO and senior management team has no strategy for this. If you work hard, you will not get any credit. If you have a good idea for improving the business, you will not be listened to. Most employees are coasting at the moment, either waiting for a redundancy payment, a new job or the inevitable collapse of the company.
