    Pros

    The people in my office are all awesome, friendly, helpful people. They are knowledgeable and I've learned a lot from them. The VP of our Department is a fair leader and empowers you to make a lot of tech decisions.

    Cons

    It's basically helping big companies market, so not the most passionate mission. But the work is still interesting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, a little faster decision making would be helpful. Sometimes we can be left in limbo and it would be good to know what's going on.

    I worked at Merkle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Above average pay and compensation

    Cons

    Awful Culture, Leadership lack skills, they are trying to get into marketing and advertising but it’s not what they do and they are terrible at it. Worst agency I’ve ever been at. Hell I never even spoke to HR the entire time I was there except for one day when they told us we are all getting laid off because they lost an account which they lost because they failed to do anything innovative.

    Advice to Management

    When you lose an account, you take care of your employees. You give those who moved their families in order to help out your business, and those who work on the weekends and often time 12 hour days a severence package.

    What you don’t do is make their last day the last day of the month so you don’t have to pay health insurance for the next month (even though it usually takes 30 days to get enrolled in isursnce at your new job), you don’t cut them out and let them dry especially when most of us gave you our everything day in and day out. Bottom line, you take care of your employees and if I can help it I’ll never work for a company that treats its employees in such a tough situation like cattle.

    Pros

    Work hard play hard environment. Culturally diverse, Company is always looking to expand globally.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not the best. Compensation could be better. Management quick to change direction with minimum warning. Company over works their employees to some degree.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the worth of your team members. Appreciate their value.
