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

    Pros

    > Sokrati has proved its worth in Digital marketing space before it became Merkle - Sokrati. Merkle is global Digital Marketing agency which is now a Dentsu company so global presence has increased enormously. > I am part of the Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) team which is fast growing, works with some of the well-known clients and on latest AEM versions. Team is also working with lot of new integration features with AEM on multiple projects. > Ample opportunities to serve valuable clients by working in all the verticals of Digital marketing. > The best work culture where quality of work matters the most rather than giving importance to time spent in the office. > Thoughtful and responsible ways of setting up a organization hierarchies which does not follow common practice of restricting the work according to one's designation rather employees are given growth opportunities based on talent and skills. > Career growth and importance of aspiration is given high priority that makes it easy to opt to learn and work on new technology and team for any employee. Transition between projects is made easy which results in employee satisfaction, their interests are well looked after which spreads the healthy and happy work environment. > No Bench Culture. > Salaries meeting market standards. > Great Work Life Balance.

    Cons

    > Merkle Sokrati which is now Dentsu is growing in India so it has its share of challenges like currently office is only in Pune but considering the Pune as established IT hub it is not a bad option to move. > Currently Sokrati is operating from 2 offices but first it has became Merkle-Sokrati and now they are a Dentsu company so it might lead to have 1 established office space in future.

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

    Pros

    Used to be a good place for freshers to get a solid hands-on experience in and understanding of digital marketing. No longer the case.

    Cons

    The catastrophic failure of upper management after the acquisition by DAN has led to poor hiring quality, lack of meaningful responsibilities, no real work is done.

    Pros

    Amazing and diverse learning in the presently nascent field of digital marketing in India. Huge responsibilities, which if not taken overwhelmingly, is helpful for gaining individual knowledge.

    Cons

    Extreme lack of mamagement structure. No value given to employees. Seemingly friendly work culture where the toxicity comes to form as days pass by. No bridge between Business Development team and the Operations team. Laughable SLAs, deadlines and work pressure to every individual- the work is piled up as long as the person starts to break. Extremely insufficient infrastructure, which is unimaginably cumbersome and getting increasingly so with the huge influx of new joinees. There's no provision of replacement when employees resign- if 2 people leave a certain team, the number of accounts they were handling are distributed by the rest, which explains why the attrition rate is as dismal. The initiatives taken by the HR to improve work-life balance (after unanimously being coaxed by employees to comment on) is ZERO. Instead, the issue is treated with mockery. To make matters worse, the company is getting desperate to retain employees- with brute force methods such as announcing bogus and far fetched incentive schemes but doubling/tripling of notice period effective from the day of announcement. No respite even on Saturdays and Sundays.

    Pros

    Good for starting career in Digital Marketing & stay for short time period just till you are learning. Gives you exposure to corporate politics

    Cons

    Biased Higher management, Doesn't care for employee's growth, no work life balance, you are expected to work on weekends without anyone considering your efforts. No respect for work. There are only few people who'll be promoted & praised for something which is so small & that you have been doing throughout your tenure. Your great efforts won't count still you will be expected to help them with escalations.

    I have been working at Sokrati

    Pros

    Used to be one of the best places to work. Not anymore. You may still find the compensation attractive but but but, once you join, you're gonna regret.

    Cons

    The company is no more like it used to be. The people, culture, everything has gone from good to bad to worse. It's no more a startup rather a place with politics. Your talent is not valued here anymore. The people who were the pillars of the organization have left, and are leaving. It's a bunch of newbies now who don't know A of Digital Marketing.
