Pros

People are very friendly. Great place to work during the summer because there are many free events to attend and free presents.

Cons

Quite a lot of down time. Need to be proactive in asking for work or else they're so busy they forget you're there. Didn't get to participate a whole lot, but I definitely learned a lot about the company culture and how the industry works.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide interns with more hands on experience and not just simple administrative tasks.

    I worked at The Media Kitchen

    Pros

    People around the office are friendly, laid back and smart.
    You'll definitely make friends and meet some great people.
    The floorplan is set up in a way that promotes interaction with co-workers.

    Cons

    The pay is far from great.
    High turnover which leads to other problems.
    Time wasting inefficiencies.
    Employees who don't feel valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is great at highlighting agency strengths but not so great at addressing (and fixing) weaknesses.

    Focus on retaining talent and don't gloss over everyday challenges that employees face.

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Relaxed and open work environment
    No offices, which creates a very welcoming environment for employees with their managers

    Cons

    They do not compensate their employees nearly enough, which has lead to increasingly high turnover
    Upper management often acts as if its a privilege to work at TMK, instead of treating employees well
    Management tends to sweep major problems under the rug

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in talent, always treat employees well, and face problems head on - it will greatly advance The Media Kitchen to be an agency of the future
