  7. "Fun Entry-Level Job But Poor Pay"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Community Engagement Manager 

    I worked at Zimmerman Advertising full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - work environment - i didn't feel micromanaged every second and you were able to walk around the whole building and chat with co-workers without getting in trouble - "culture" - they tried to have fun events for employees to look forward to

    Cons

    - pay - very cheap - felt very replaceable and that they didn't care until you put in your 2 weeks - their "24/7" motto is very true - they expect you to always be checking your computer even off typical work hours

    I worked at Zimmerman Advertising full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My coworkers. If you’re starting out in the agency world and don’t have many options (since south Florida is so limited in good agency options), consider this a boot camp of sorts for agency experience.

    Cons

    Now that I have experience working at other agencies, I see that Zimmerman offered no good employee perks. Salary offered is a misery and there is no work-life balance. Also, Jordan Zimmerman’s first piece of advice when you go in for your on boarding is “you don’t need more than 5 hours of sleep.” Hopefully that’s a glimpse into what the agency expects from you.
