I have been working at Marketing Werks full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of learning opportunities, management helps to succeed, thorough review process, GREAT place to get your feet wet for your first 1-3 years in agency work, many fun team-oriented OR solo travel opportunities

Cons

Things move very fast and work distribution is inconsistent (you are either really busy, or there's not much to do)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Follow through is key in establishing trust in a rapidly growing company. Mean what you say, say what you mean and follow up consistently.

    I have been working at Marketing Werks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Marketing Werks is well known for hiring full time individuals from contract positions. It is a great way to test who is hard working. MW has also had a pretty substantial amount of growth as a company so the chances of advancement are great. The client service side handles a brunt of the work so you have the opportunity to gain a ton of experience. It is an independently owned company and has a family feel. I personally have been well looked after and am appreciative of my experience.

    Cons

    Just like any agency that specializes in events and experiential, you will work a lot of hours. Because the company doesn't have specialized individuals, you will be tested to find solutions to issues and sometimes budget projections for some line items aren't realistic and you are forced to scramble. Salaries are generally pretty low and because it is an independently owned agency, there are a ton of "politics".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The atmosphere at MW is fun and exciting but you should think seriously about flex hours to fit the nature of the business and help keep employees. Also look to hire specialized individuals vs road crew with limited professional work experience
