People, Learning opportunities (i.e. getting exposure to areas outside my role, such as SEO, database marketing, project management, marketing mix, what your CFO wants you to know about corporate finance, etc), Facilities, Benefits, and Flexibility (i.e. work from home, hours, etc)

Cons

Some departments work longer hours than others, but doesn't affect everyone.

    Pros

    There are a lot of really smart people and it is a great place to learn about direct/database marketing..

    Cons

    Crazy hours, not good for work life balance. Constantly reorganizing. Too many chiefs and not enough indians (which contributes to the hours).

    Merkle is not perfect, but overall a darn good place to work

    Pros

    Private company so can manage financials beyond quarter to quarter and make smarter long term decisions than a public company. Amazing co-workers all very bright, work hard and nice. Little to no politics. Great clients provide interesting work with a lot of breadth and depth of experience. Fun culture. Very flexible. Very autonomous.

    Cons

    High expectations because the bar or standars are very high based on the quality of the people there. Need to be able to juggle many things and stand on your own. Support exists but a lot of accountability is placed on each person. You can always find things to pick on about any company and Merkle is not perfect, but in comparison to the many other places I have worked Merkle is at the top and I feel very confident that senior management is doing the best they can to balance the needs of employees, clients and profitability.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows continue to put more standards in place as lack of consistency is a bigger problem across a larger organization than a smaller one.
