    Great People, Poor Structure & Leadership

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at M80 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, Great culture fostered in each office, leaders encourage fun outings for the teams. Most employees work very hard for very little pay

    Cons

    poor vision and lack of leadership. terrible resources for employees and beholden to the media companies that pull the strings rather than the vision of leadership. The leaders have no idea what the company does or who the employees are. The salaries are not competitive with the marketplace and haven't changed for years.

    I worked at M80 full-time

    Pros

    Everyone tends to wear a bunch of different hats on their accounts, giving you an opportunity to learn more than what your job description entails. The office environment is pretty laid back and fun.

    Cons

    Compensation is awful across the board, and upper management isn't in touch with the needs of employees. (Read: little to no raises or bonuses) It's lead to high turnover as of late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the value of a long-lasting employee and give credit and pay raises when they're due.

    Pros

    Never restricted to working within a silo. You'll have the ability to try new things.

    Cons

    No direction given on how to proceed to the next level. Sink or swim attitude.

    Pros

    you don't have to dress up

    Cons

    Location in TImes Square, long, expected work hours - but you're only waiting on other people do their work you aren't actually "working late"

    Pros

    Often great clients. Good access to WPP network, media and technology companies. Some employees are driven, entrepreneurial. Great experience if you're on the right account.

    Cons

    Stagnant company having difficulty staying ahead in the industry. Very quiet work atmosphere with little employee interaction. Technology is far behind, pretty poor for an online company. Limited knowledge sharing and poor internal communication. Hardly any corporate structure, discouraging growth. Relaxed, indifferent employees usually creating uninspired work. Inflexible work/life balance, mediocre pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more for quality talent to decrease turn over, and improve project quality. Add more dimension to the agency structure to encourage growth. Strive to drive innovation and communicate with your employees.

    Pros

    M80 is a great company in a growing space. Management is engaged, smart, and values employees. Lots of fun people to work with and great clients. Very relaxed atmosphere. Technology is decent for an online focused firm. Great support staff and located in a great neighborhood. Very entrepreneurial culture, lots of opportunity for personal growth. Connections to WPP and other media agencies are amazing. Lots of experience in online marketing. Upper management/partners are truly great people that are inspiring to work for. 100% integrity. Good camaraderie among employees. Emphasis on work/life balance; very easy to work with. Lots of trust.

    Cons

    Relaxed vibe can be detrimental...some low-grade output. Pay is mediocre.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reach back and pay more for high quality talent that can launch this company into the stratosphere!
