I worked at Mercury Media full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good people to work with. Clients benefit from long partnerships with vendors to receive efficient rates for long form DRTV. Good training ground. Fair staff retention rate.

Cons

Questionable management style and communication, depending on position level. Systems need updating but staff makes it adequate enough. Focus on long form only doesn't allow for multimedia opportunities for staff. Salary is significantly lower than industry average.

Advice to Management

Listen to staff. Provide clear direction of company.

    I worked at Mercury Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People were friendly for the most part

    Cons

    Long hours when management would leave early if they were even there after lunch at all; Very cliquish and would only promote their friends; company kept restructuring and didn't know the focus they wanted but since have merged; Supervisors didn't know the positions they were overseeing so it was hard to learn or get advice from them

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded and make sure you are trained before you oversee a dept.

    I have been working at Mercury Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Friendly and motivated colleagues. Lots of room for growth in this company. They also have a fun committee that sets up office parties and events weekly. This is the place to expand your knowledge in the media industry and especially get your foot in the door. Located in a prime location of LA, near third street promenade of Santa Monica.

    Cons

    Company is too comfortable with current wealth and clients, they need to expand and get the momentum going for future growth.

    Advice to Management

    Company has so much unlocked potential, I am excited to see where it ends up in the near future.
