Spitfire is a woman-owned, strategic communication firm that partners with nonprofits and foundations working to make the world a better place. Spitfire’s values are rooted in one core principle: Everyone belongs and has the power to spark change. Our work reflects this.
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Spitfire Strategies full-time Cons: -Management does not effectively communicate -Management can be overly aggressive and unapproachable -Double-standards for employees -Unclear standards of work expectations, which are constantly changing -Ineffective utilization of resources -Team members work in cliques -No room for learning curves -Unrealistic work to life balance"
Former Employee - Director says"I worked at Spitfire Strategies full-time for more than 3 years Cons: This company has a huge issue with gender and racial diversity which has led to massive turnover and dissatisfaction among staff. This issue affects work output and morale. Leadership is a clique that makes false promises about improving culture. Members of leadership also ask current and former staff to write positive Glassdoor reviews upon leaving the company. Not sure why former staff adhere to this if they are no longer on the payroll."
says"I worked at Spitfire Strategies for more than a year Cons: Overworked and underpaid. Be prepared to work long hours. Senior staff are expected to respond to internal emails at all hours of the day."
Former Employee - Account Coordinator says"I worked at Spitfire Strategies full-time for more than a year Cons: At the time it was mostly women and if you were male you were often left out of things. Inter-office gossip was everywhere, and a lot of behind-the-back bickering about each other. The lower levels of the firm were young and very egotistical, whereas upper management was quite full of themselves. Sadly no one spoke to one another, more like past one another."
Former Employee - Training Coordinator says"I worked at Spitfire Strategies full-time for more than a year Cons: no mobility and lack of training"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Spitfire Strategies full-time Cons: Promotions were handed out to c-level favorites and not merit, which is bad for morale. Turnover is very high so there’s a lack of stability in managers."
Former Employee - Senior Account Manager says"I worked at Spitfire Strategies full-time for less than a year Cons: The firm supports a competitive spirit, but it does not necessarily support a collaborative environment. You have to get in there, dive in and hope to fit in. If you don't, it will affect your day-to-day interactions, mobility within the company and the projects you are assigned. In terms of skill, you can learn a lot there, but not when it comes to new campaign models. They have built a solid strategic planning model they can teach from, but it is too static. If you are a person that has more experience in creative/grassroots environments, it may not be for you."
Barmaid/Waitress (Former Employee) says"The management don't treat you with any respect they drink alot and get drunk and then become verbally abusive towards people. I was embarrassed in front of a load of people for doing my job and closing up when it was time to."
Hostess (Current Employee) says"Manager is very unprofessional and a bad communicator. He can be flexible with hours but yet very demeaning to employees and sometimes customers. A great short hour part time job but an unhealthy work environment. Cons: unprofessional"
Store Manager (Former Employee) says"Started the day with meeting with staff then go to stockroom to pull new stock and repairs.Display new stock and interact with customers.Take phone orders and have them ready for the customers these are bulk orders.End of day do stocktake which had to be done every night to see how much stock was sold.End of evening check cash.Lock up store Cons: Long hours i used to open and close the store every day"
Bartender (Former Employee) says"I took a job here 2 days a week to help the owner, a friend, out. It wasn't a bad place to work. But it wasn't a good one. This job was more so just going and hanging out at the bar with friends and making a little bit of money. Cons: the place was always a mess"
Waitress/Bartender (Current Employee) says"It was a good place to work for a student attending college. Fun and family oriented place to work. Very nice patio, and good drink and food specials."
Sales assistant (Former Employee) says"it was fun working there but there were no benefits. the hours were too long, although i loved my staff members because they were amazing. my hourly rate could have been better Cons: working till 9 was tiring"
