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

    Pros

    I've been here for almost 5 weeks now and it has been a breathe of fresh air. The interview process was smooth, and they really try and place you where they think you'll fit best and strive most. The culture is great and they are flexible when it comes to appointments, or any issues that could arise. So far it has been amazing!

    Cons

    None so far, all around been great.

    Pros

    Their new space is really amazing and super cool. The people are great.

    Cons

    If you work on the Coca Cola account, be prepared to feel locked away in your own world. Entirely separate floor and locked doors. Sterile, white environment.

    I worked at HelloWorld

    Pros

    Great for as a first job. That's it.

    Cons

    The supervisors aren't trained on how to be effective supervisors. Annual employee turnover is 20-25%, you can do the actual math with what they expose internally. That exceeds what Forbes says is a healthy turnover. When you ask what you can do to get the best rating in each of the categories on your performance review, your supervisor shrugs their shoulders and tells you they don't know. It's for this reason that the...

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to actually not suck. Take care of your employees first and they'll take care of you. When you screw up, own up to it, and fix it. Don't just throw your hands up in the air, and say "oh well". Stop treating your employees like migrant workers. Have the balls to fire your employees to their face, when they're not on vacation. Stop permitting your management chain to make and violate verbal agreements with...

    I worked at HelloWorld full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The office space at HelloWorld is great! The office consist of three spacious floors of open space arrangements, an arcade room, three kitchens and great views. Plenty of team members that really back one another up, and friendly people that work together to get the job done.

    Cons

    The lack of management and leadership is fulsome, to say the least. When I was first hired there, I would have days when I would come home and tell myself, “wow, this is a place I can really see myself grow!” This was until you realized that the managers/higher echelon employees we’re hired into their roles because of social cliques. Nearly all my managers were friends with other managers outside of work, which made problem...

    Advice to Management

    There’s only one bit of advice I can give to the management at HW: Learn to take constructive criticism from your team members! Don’t take things personally, and you’ll see the drastic change of moral from the people that do all the work. Self-pity is a nasty and sometimes incurable personality flaw, and its ramped throughout the workplace. The sad part about the pity parade is that is comes mostly from the top. I got...

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

    Pros

    Work environment is cool Working with Big name clients for promotional/loyalty work Work hours are flexible, with option to work from home Everyone is friendly and supportive when needing help with work You get 3 “summer half days” (1 a month from June-August) Standard Holidays

    Cons

    Pay could be better. Raises are difficult to receive and then you get capped at amounts that other companies are providing as their starting salaries. Benefits are expensive for what you get They advertised unlimited PTO but have since changed the wording to “flexible PTO” with a cap at 14-18 days, anything past that needs approval by HR. Granted that’s a decent amount of days off, don’t advertise it as unlimited if...

    I have been working at HelloWorld full-time

    Pros

    - Incredibly supportive, open, sharing and collaborative culture - Brilliant, hardworking individuals with a wide variety of backgrounds - Humble leadership, who actually know/remember who you are - Genuinely interested in developing the team as professionals and people

    Cons

    Not too much here outside of normal agency work. - The dynamic range of client work (while interesting) can make it hard to predict or establish a consistent working routine - Not always being to own a product or service can make things slow moving with client work
