    I worked at Ivie full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of down time, plenty of time to socialize and network.
    Also, they worship their interns.

    Cons

    Leadership lacks leadership and turns a blind eye while different departments throw each other under the bus and points fingers at each other. This is an inexperienced and extremely insecure company that operates out of fear and uncertainly, so they bicker and gossip about everyone; each project is executed with little style or finesse because no one truly has any idea what's going on.

    Don't expect to get paid well here; they low ball you. And management is extremely unprofessional, disorganized, and disengaged - that's why there's a lot of blaming and stealing revenue shares. There are also employees with mediocre experience who should be fired, but they stay around because of nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of digital because you really don't know what to do with it. Stick with print because it's all that you know.

    Agency that primarily has retail and grocery clients, you must be flexible to bounce around on projects.

    I worked at Ivie full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Location: conveniently located in the suburbs.
    Nice office.
    Small, homey feel.
    Good place to start a career.

    Cons

    Low salaries.
    Lackluster management.
    Company bites off more than it can chew.

    Despite low salaries the president has no problem driving his Ferrari to work and parking it in front of the office across multiple spots; a nice reminder that not everyone is underpaid.

    Pros

    The people are great. Good benefit package. Big name clients.

    Cons

    A ton of work for very low pay. Political. No time to mentor because every piece of business starts out chaotic with no plan in place. It's sink or swim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees if you expect them to stay for the long haul.

    I worked at Ivie

    Pros

    Great company culture, great experience with Walmart.

    Cons

    Promotions and raises are slow-going. Plus, working onsite for the client has been stressful and unpleasant, you don't get the same perks as working for Ivie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunity for growth and mentoring.

    What a Joke

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Ivie

    Pros

    You get your foot in door at Walmart and Sam's Club.

    Cons

    They are not your typical marketing company. They are nothing more than an overpaid staffing company pretending to be more than they are. They will let you go at the drop of a hat and make up exaggerated stories to support their decision. In order to survive here, never bring up any issues or recommendations. They don't want to hear it and will fire you. Always watch your back here. Don't trust management and HR is not your friend. Highly unprofessional and a waste of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a better look at your management in Bentonville and your entire HR team. They are not worth the high $ you pay them. They definitely show bias and favoritism.

    I have been working at Ivie full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people I work with are awesome. There will always be 1 or 2 coworkers that your personality clashes with, but that's everywhere you go. Overall we're like one big dysfunctional family (I mean that in a loving way). The pay is competitive and benefits are good. Good work/life balance, although a lot of hours are put in during the holiday seasons (if you are a creative). Laid back, fun environment. Again, this is coming from the creative side.

    Cons

    Promotions are few and far between and raises other than standard cost of living are rare.
    HR (Home office, Flower Mound) is a joke. They are disorganized, portray a lack of knowledge of their department and treat people like robots. When they make mistakes they don't take responsibility for their actions and will pin blame on someone else at all costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to do a clean sweep on your HR team in Flower Mound for the reasons listed above.
