Seven reasons why Emagine sucks (per a former employee) 1. Outdated delivery head who feels only he knows everything 2. Lack of transparency between Onshore and offshore 3. Inability to retain existing accounts (Ex: Company is not even 1 year old and already 2 clients have gone back within 6months) 4. Failure of local leadership to implement strategic initiatives of Global leadership 5. Local leadership immaturity hurting companies progress 6. Employee Salary cut by 20% within 1 year of start of the company 7. No policy documents for employees
Former Employee - Sales Representative says"I worked at Engine full-time for more than a year Cons: Listening to an out of touch Chief Commercial Officer telling us how to do things the wrong way. Clients need empathy now, not bs"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Engine full-time for more than a year Cons: Sort by "Newest" and read the negative reviews. It's all true. Toxic? Engine specializes in cliques and gaslighting. Upper management? Find their bios under "incompetent" in the dictionary. Transparency? You'll find more in a brick wall. Accountability? It's definitely your fault but you can also pass the blame. Originality? I heard the newest branding was stolen from Pentagram. Growth? None unless you're completely incompetent at your job. Incompetency loves company. New York? Other locations will say it's paradise but that's far from the truth. I can't even imagine what the other offices are like if our office is the gold standard."
Former Employee - Executive says"I worked at Engine full-time for more than 5 years Cons: The current leadership is a complete joke. They are inexperienced and have absolutely no idea what they are doing. They blatantly lie about capabilities in every RFI and RFP and when they are slick enough to fool a gullible client into hiring them, quickly prove that they are incapable of delivering anything of value, which is a complete embarrassment to the team on the front lines. Aside from this professional incompetence, the ceo/cmo is a disgrace to women in general, and has “laid off” women far into their pregnancies and has “eliminated positions” of other women who have prioritized family and children over the abusive agenda of the agency. Many reviews on this platform are skewed because of the merger of multiple agencies under the Engine name, but beware if you are signing on to be a part of the creative arm or “agency”, it is an extremely toxic environment, run by an incompetent CEO. The CCO is a good guy with an impressive resume though - basically the only thing leadership has going for it."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Engine full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Incredibly toxic workplace culture that promotes egos and bravado over hard work or talent. Terrible mismanagement left whole functions over-serviced by teams that could have been half the size. Any attempt to improve productivity or introduce some basic best practice is met with intense hostility and suspicion by those at the top. Slackers who keep their heads down are rewarded, whereas those who try and breathe fresh life into the agency are either bullied into submission or shown the door."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Engine full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Management was constantly changing. In 5 years the company changed CEO’s 4 times. Not a clear direction on where the company is going."
Current Employee - Account Director says"I have been working at Engine full-time for more than 5 years Cons: leadership not focused & has head in the sand thinking company is better positioned than they are, micromanagers, no training for those interested in learning, saying you are innovative does not make you innovative"
Former Employee - Senior Vice President says"I worked at Engine full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Petty commentary from the least credentialized management team I've ever encountered is the best you can expect. Lay-off and tell people how bright their future is yet not have capacity to reach budget....rinse....repeat"
Former Employee - Vice President says"I worked at Engine full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Completely toxic work environment where bullying is not only tolerated but encouraged. Senior staff in the Boston office continue to get promoted as they are the only people able to secure any actual business while at the same time dozens of staff have left and noted their behavior as the reason. Below average salary Expectation to work excessive hours, including evenings, weekend and holidays Low morale and high turnover"
Current Employee - Software Engineer says"I have been working at Engine full-time for less than a year Cons: Lackluster leadership running around with their heads cut off. Seems like they are changing things day by day. Downsizing of office space. Good culture and positivity feel like its been suppressed by leadership over the past few months. Product roadmap is controlled solely by the CEO, I wouldn't try to have your own ideas. Some of the leaders that people enjoyed have since departed."
Former Employee - Vice President says"I worked at Engine full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Bullies, Micro-Managers, and Throwbacks to a world that no longer exists continue to shed quality people to save salary causing people to nit want to be the last one standing - The Titanic Fiddler Syndrome"
