    Pros

    Young and inspired staff. Nate Goore (Principal) is a great mentor.

    Cons

    Mark Miller, CEO, is verbally abusive and a major obstacle in delivering valuable project deliverables for his clients on time. HR handles delicate situations inappropriately.

    Advice to Management

    Promote Allen, Signo and Rachel to decision making roles. Move Mark to the background.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at MKThink full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Exciting projects and clients - Medium-sized firm with small-firm feel - recent grads are given a lot of freedom and ownership

    Cons

    - lack of strong mentorship - lack of clear communication, strong hierarchy - frustrating bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    The strong hierarchy creates an environment that can hinder creativity, and can be obstacles to the best interests of a project or client.

    Creative, innovative, and energized company that is pushing the envelope, makes work feel relevant and inspired.

    I worked at MKThink full-time

    Pros

    Exposure to a variety of interesting project types running the gamut from architecture to product & software innovation to strategic planning. Staff and leadership have varied educational/professional backgrounds and perspectives--makes for a creative and mind-opening work environment. The company is not too big that you can be intimately involved in projects from concept inception to completion. Has a youthful atmosphere, but still maintains a professional environment of experienced staff.

    Cons

    The company is still growing, so it doesn't have as well-developed internal procedures and resources for staff as do larger, established corporations. Needs to work on clarifying its branding and messaging.

    Advice to Management

    They have a lot of really bright staff who are an incredible resource for ideas and a different perspective. Leadership could do a better job encouraging and supporting bottom-up thinking and development of ideas.

    Lack of clear expectations, bullying by seniors, and lack of feedback from management - not an intelligent career move.
