      I worked at GYK Antler full-time

      Pros

      They close the week of Christmas and the Fourth of July. They have a few cool clients to display on your resume.

      Cons

      Where to begin…GYK Antler has a toxic workplace environment and continues to baffle with their ineptitude as they try and fail to grow their business. Do not be fooled by the cold brew and beer on tap – this is not a friendly place to work for young people, women, or minorities. They do the bare minimum when it comes to proper management or professional development of their employees, and gaslight any person attempting...

      Advice to Management

      It's 2019 - get with the program. In this job market you will not succeed or grow if you don't invest in your employees and their futures.

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

      Pros

      GYK Antler does a lot right. They have a good focus on responsible growth, they regularly punch above their weight, and it's clear they care about their employees on a human level. There's a lot to be excited about in terms of new business wins and future projects, and a lot of potential for positive growth in the next year. All signs point to good things ahead for the agency as a whole, and in turn the people who work...

      Cons

      Like any mid-sized agency, your experience here can be largely dependent on where you work and what accounts you touch. Some are frankly more creative, and more enjoyable, and others suffer from more demanding/inflexible clients, teams, and structures.

      Advice to Management

      Invest in retaining employees. Invest in all the offices—not just Manchester. Take a closer look at which employees actually add value, and which ones put on a good show.

      No Opinion of CEO

      I worked at GYK Antler full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      It's a dog friendly office.

      Cons

      The CEO is a decent guy, but middle and upper management is where it all falls apart. The people who are actually doing the work every day are great, but the people who sit in their offices are toxic. Employees frequently vocalize unhappiness and no action is taken. No focus on career development. The company leads with fear and empty promises.

      Advice to Management

      Reflect on your leadership. The company meeting pep talks are getting tired. Do something.

      I have been working at GYK Antler full-time

      Pros

      Easy commute for most people

      Cons

      Surprise layoffs or firings really lower morale. Seems like a pretend agency and not a legitimate business.

      Advice to Management

      Get some real accounts

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

      Pros

      GYK Antler was ranked by Forbes as a top 25 small business in America for a reason. All of our offices are modern and collaborative, the benefits are competitive, and most importantly, the people who work here are awesome.

      Cons

      I've completely run out of new lunch places to try (thanks a lot, Manchester) and sometimes the parking garage is so full that I have to go up to the third floor (thanks a lot, Quilting Expo). Compensation leaves a little to be desired.

      Advice to Management

      Lots of exciting changes and improvements lately, keep heading in the right direction.

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

      Pros

      Nice senior designer, and feel when you first arrive. However doesn't last long.

      Cons

      They use designers during busy times and fire when they loose steam. Shady business, don't be fooled by them. Designers beware!

      I have been working at GYK Antler for less than a year

      Pros

      Great exposure to multiple different business avenues/infrastructures. Atmosphere & culture alone go unmatched, it's a great experience for anyone. Employees are all super friendly and helpful, never felt judged or like I was bothering anyone with asking questions.

      Cons

      Work can become redundant after some time. Not much opportunity for working on anything besides your designated tasks, can find yourself staring at the clock in some instances.

      I worked at GYK Antler full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The people are great - You get to work very indepentantly across many different client, projects, and departments. You learn a lot about the different departments, and process (or what it should be).

      Cons

      You are thrown on things with very little direction in a very sink or float capacity. Too many entry level employees, and very little mid level employees. The path to growth is very unclear, and there's a huge lack of teaching/mentoring. Culture in NH is okay - but Boston office culture is non-existent. A lot of older employees who have been with the company for a very long time that are not willing to change their ways...
