    - you need to be open to change in order to thrive at MRY. You'll constantly need to evolve your skillset to match the needs of the marketplace. It's not for everyone.

    Former Employee - Content Strategist in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Content Strategist in New York, NY

    I worked at MRY as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very strong with social media and youth marketing
    Friendly atmosphere
    Very casual, cannot find one stuffy person in the entire place

    Cons

    Transition from social media focus to full services will be a learning curve on the young, inexperienced staff
    Recent mergers could change the nature of the company in the future

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire me more often, lol.

    Strong social agency wtih lots of talent - great for self-led employees

    Current Employee - Project Manager in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Project Manager in New York, NY

    I have been working at MRY full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    MRY is one of the strongest agencies for social strategy and bringing ideas to life through all social touchpoints. The people are smart and team-oriented, and the company has a fun culture. Solid client roster and strong PM / account teams.

    Processes overall at the agency are getting better and more streamlined. Company is transparent with a weekly meeting that updates the agency on what's going on with different accounts, pitches, etc.

    Great perks like free healthcare, unlimited PTO, lunch and learn sessions, Thursday beer fridge, company events, free professional training, in-house barista, etc. Location is also great!

    Cons

    Some employees need more hand-holding than others. The creative (visual design) work is not the strongest I've seen. No free snacks in the office, strict expense policy, not enough meeting rooms, PC's for most instead of Macs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and keep improving processes!

    Pros

    MRY is a place where good ideas turn into amazing realities. Great innovations come from anywhere and everywhere. MRY has an amazing culture and awesome benefits. The clients are brave which makes the work fun.

    Cons

    The agency is always changing in order to stay ahead of the curve. If you hate having to figure things out - often on your own - this isn't the place for you. You have to think on your feet and embrace healthy chaos.

    Pros

    Great people, amazing perks, and great work that is appreciated by all levels of employees. There are some departments where there is great opportunity to impact change. There is also a recently implemented education program that is an excellent idea for younger employees to gain more skills and confidence in the work they're producting.

    Cons

    Sometimes can be known as the agency who loves to party and the focus on the great work being produced gets lost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on sharing the great work that every client is doing, no matter how small, and not just the big ones.
