A wonderful place to work

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

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

ProsIntelligent, passionate and reasonable people. You know that you encompass all three of these things if you work here.

ConsThere's not always a clear direction
People who are a burden on the team (usually contractors or bought up teams) are met with no consequences and/or time to improve

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

iCrossing is a great place to learn and grow

Vice President Strategy (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at iCrossing full-time for more than 10 years

Pros- Tremendous opportunities for people that are ambitious
- Strong career growth with the ability to get promoted quickly
- Upholds an integrated approach that breaks down traditional marketing silos
- Numerous opportunities to get training and advance your skills
- Executive leadership that listens and is passionate about the business

Cons- Currently in the midst of a transition from search-centric to full-service centric agency
- Business development lacks a strategic focus that works to shape office client portfolios
- Select employees could be more actively encouraged to expand their cross-channel knowledge base
- Until recently, creative wasn't getting the respect it deserves
- Recent changes have improved office culture and it will hopefully continue to improve

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on...listening to employees, making the tough decisions that better the organization, and rolling up your sleeves to serve the most important constituents (the clients).

Very dissatisfied at this job.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at iCrossing full-time

Pros-good place to work for a year out of college, then get out immediately

Cons-no room for promotions
-upper management lies to employees
-directors have no idea what is going on with its employees
-put in long hours with no reward
-don't listen to requests of employees because upper management simply doesn't care
-expected to do workload of positions above you with no promotions
-no compensation of any kind for far too long
-no one is happy to be there or go to work, in fact, its a rather depressing environment to be in
-upper management has no idea whats going on
-has been getting consistently worse and turnover is at an all time high. Every one is trying to get out fast.

Agency in Transition

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at iCrossing

Prosgreat training environment and opportunity to lear different parts of digital marketing

Consmostly same client base for past 6+ years. agency went through major transition in 2013 with lots of people coming/going including CEO. Too top heavy and no room for promotions which is why younger smart people leave. agency is trying to be the next giant holding company which isn't nec. a good thing. they were a specialized leader and now their strategy is all over the map.

UK office - great clients and professionals, no so great work ethics

Senior Account Manager (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

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

ProsThe client portfolio is great and the agency is gaining many prices and ranking. It is also great for career progression.

ConsWork culture does not facilitate team building and working over two offices makes your commute time a real down side

Advice to Senior ManagementRetaining clients comes after retaining staff

Overall great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA (US)

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

ProsGreat people. Most of which know what they're doing and work towards bettering themselves.
Great work/life balance. I never felt overworked.
Good benefits.

ConsA little too much "fat" towards the top of the chain, which can be typical for large organizations, but the new president is working on trimming it.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the good talent and keeping them.

Sad Agency with depressing office culture which lacks motivation and creativity

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA (US)

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

Pros- Good learning experience when starting out (or when fresh from college)
- There are some genuine people in the SF office, although the office leadership is a disappointment

Cons- Extremely depressing, non-invigorating, non-motivating and non-creative office environment
- Office leadership does not care about those doing the work
- Little sense of "belonging", little sense of pride in the company

Advice to Senior ManagementCare for your employees. You have to bring an atmosphere to the office which inspires creativity, motivation and success.
