Good place to get experience but probably not for the long haul

Campaign Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

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

Pros-Company sponsored happy hours bi-weekly
-Free snacks & soda, bagels on friday, usually always some free lunch leftovers from exec meetings if you time going to the kitchen just right.
-Always opportunity to work overtime on holidays or if you miss a day can make up for it on weekends
-Friendly co-workers
-Can work from home if you have an emergency or are sick.

Cons-Unorganized
-Cares more about the amount of "passable" work you can get pushed through rather than the quality of it.
-Low pay
-Strings along temp employees
-So many people in the entry "CM" level that stakes and politics are HIGH once a position outside of CM or a lead CM opens up.
-Depending on your team you will either love your life or hate it.
-Lots of inter office flings can lead to some drama and awkwardness.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you don't want to hire on the mass amount of CMs that work there (at least 60% are temp) then please pay us more. The redundant, high stress, always busy work we do, we deserve at least $18-20.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
