Smart and Talented People/Executives Lost in the Digital Wilderness

Vice President (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Merkle full-time for more than a year

ProsSurrounded by outstanding and smart people
Great client list
Young, driven, fun culture
Smart and capable CEO that employees like and relate to.

ConsExecutive team doesn't truly understand digital and keeps looking for a savior from the outside
Frat culture where you're either part of the frat or an outsider
Too much turn over of talented people
Mgt doesn't want to trust the execs it hired to run the business and they get discouraged and go elsewhere
Not much diversity amongst Sr leadership team.
Co-Presidents that hinder rather than enable business
Company has been nicknamed WERKLE and for good reason.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind good people and set them free to run the business without perpetual meddling from Curley and Mo (Co-Presidents)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
