    I worked at Jack Morton full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I received a very hands-on education in project management and conference planning. The teams were diverse and everyone had a great depth of knowledge about the industry. There was always the opportunity to learn and do more.

    Cons

    Being managed by people who weren't the best at managing people and their career development. The company embraced the 10+ hour work day, it was very easy to log 55+ hours per week. They did try to compensate by offering a “flex” schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of work load balancing; utilize the team and their talents more efficiently.

    I worked at Jack Morton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    creative, collaborative teams within each office. account management and operations worked very well together.

    Cons

    Agency isn't as transparent as it thinks when it comes to state of the agency. Subjective career path and planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a much better strategy for growth for each office, one that is shared with employees. Too often the rumor mill took over and created a counterproductive environment.

    I worked at Jack Morton full-time

    Pros

    The work was enjoyable and fun. The people are very nice and laid back. I stayed busy and was never bored. Tons of vacation days. Decent pay.

    Cons

    The reliability of the company is not good. Lay offs happen based on the client's budget changing. It is scary to go into work wondering how long you will have the job based on a budget.

    I worked at Jack Morton full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Some great people and great quality of work

    Cons

    The highest turnover of any company I've ever worked for, largely due to senior management and a terrible culture they have created. They do not value honesty and hard work. Politics, deceit and backstabbing truly rule at this company. If you don't play that game well (and why would you want to), you will never succeed here. Most good people I worked with were always miserable and constantly looking for how to leave, or fired due to politics and some very deceitful actions of people in leadership positions. The NY office is a terrible place to work. Avoid at all costs!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value staff who are honest, hardworking and professional. As for the others, if only you all spent as much time focusing on the job as you do on the politics and deception you might have a hope of retaining good staff.

    You get to help plan and build interesting exhibits and television sets for large Fortune 500 companies

    Cons

    It's really really borring. management is a joke and doesn't have a clue how to manage anyone or anything. Theres no communication within the office or team environment at all. Plus some managers are really mean to marketing cordinators. You don't want to work here, it's a scam. Better off anywhere else, seriously

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    wake up and join the 21st century. It's beautiful on this side

    Pros

    People are great, work can be challenging, collaboration is embraced. Exciting to work for a niche, non-traditional, brand experience agency. Mostly supportive environment.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is a challenge for some positions. Salaries are on the lower end of the industry standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more entry level creative and strategy so that they can be mentored, nurtured, trained to become ideas-led leaders down the road.
