    Pros

    Great travel perks (travel on the client's dime). Exposure to some top tier companies. Learn quickly how to interact with upper level management.

    Cons

    Poor pay, little consideration of personal life, tons of unnecessary, antiquated processes to go through. Really have to fight to make a vertical leap in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on innovation/keeping up with the industry and building a more performance driven culture. A lot of people there are floating by. Company has a long history was the premier leader in performance improvement...not sure anymore

    I worked at Maritz full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly working environment. Many elective social events/clubs you can participate in. Strong family culture.

    Cons

    Maritz decentralization a few years back has caused confusion for 'centralized' work processes like procurement and HR, IT and security. Too much over lapping of duties and not enough 'chiefs' to make business-wide decisions and governances. Not an ideal place to work as morale is low. Culture is very archaic - big boys club environment. If you're not family or connected to the family, you're never going to get anywhere. Innovation and state-of-the-art technology is for clients; not in-house work processes. Pay is also not up to market trends; bonuses are 'rewards' points.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some money and get into the 20th Century on daily work processes. You could use half as many people to get the same work accomplished.

    Pros

    The culture is awesome and relaxed. Employees are treated very well and the pay is good. Employee incentives are great and they give you a lot of time off including a week off for the Christmas break.

    Cons

    So far no cons to share.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in employees and offer more training.

    I have been working at Maritz full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People you work with and some of the ones you work for. Flexible scheduling and at least for me, family focused.

    Cons

    Overworked and under appreciated. We're a motivation company for other external organizations, yet we can't seem to motivate our own employees. You would think that a company with that background would be able to help themselves. We're a research company too, but most of the surveys that we are asked to fill out - employee surveys, etc. - are ran by outside organizations. We can't run our own research. To much emphasis on change and not enough emphasis on the employee. Loosing all the long tenured employees, bringing in the less experienced, so to most it seems that's it's just about the money and no longer about the people. Good luck with that kind of thinking.

    Advice to Management

    None, because it doesn't matter what we say, as we've already said it and it appears that you weren't listening.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are talented, friendly, supportive, team-focused Pay is great but no benefits Mileage and expenses covered which means a lot

    Cons

    The structure of the position changed two years ago.....is more of a contract to contract based position now which means downtime (unpaid) between assignments

    Advice to Management

    The culture and job duties are great. I enjoy working here very much. Sometimes I feel that those who have been with the company but are less skilled have the full-time positions vs newer employees with more talent potential


  11. Maritz is a great company to work for that provides excellent dealership support

    Creative, energetic, motivated co-workers. Engaged supervisors
