      "Great office space, solid team members, but imperceptible leadership that felt like high school."

      I worked at HelloWorld full-time for more 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...

      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

      Such a well-oiled machine serving the best brands. They take training and on-boarding very seriously and provide you a buddy when you start to help you. Everyone is great and the work life balance is amazing.

      I worked at HelloWorld full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      HelloWorld was an amazing place to work. It was my first proper engineering job, and it was an incredible experience. A developer's first program in any language typically prints HelloWorld, and I honestly can't think of a better place to have started my engineering career proper, than here. Onboarding was smooth, within a month I felt like I had known everyone on the team for a bit. The work was fun, and challenging,...

      Cons

      None for me, but it did feel like developers lived in a different world than producers at times with regards to pressure and needing to deliver. I'd chalk it up to my manager being able to set and communicate reasonable expectations and delivery dates however.

      Advice to Management

      Don't change the culture, by far the biggest thing I miss. Just great, great people.

      I have been working at HelloWorld full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      HelloWorld has a friendly culture, nice offices, and flexible work environment. The work is, for the most part, interesting. I feel like they make a real effort to motivate through positivity. I also like the size of the company - it's small enough so that you can always find the right person to talk to on an issue, but big enough that the scale of work is complex, enjoyable, and challenging.

      Cons

      Recent acquisition by Merkle may lead to uncertainty, especially in administrative areas.

      Advice to Management

      I really like the way this company works. I can't really think of any specific advice.
