    Pros

    This company is perfect for those who possess an entrepreneurial spirit who thrive in an autonomous environment. The company supports fully its people and products and gives everyone an opportunity to be successful. The opportunity for advancement is almost unlimited and with its growth offers everyone a chance to grow personally and professionally with the company. The company in very generous in terms of salary, bonus and benefits. In addition to the compensation the company is always willing to invest in those people who are willing to contribute to its long term success. This is a great place to start a career and grow with the company.

    Cons

    Must be willing to excel in an autonomous environment and in some cases less direction with which some are comfortable.

    I worked at Mark Anthony Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    This used to be a great company to work for about 3 years ago. I was here for 9 years, spent 1 year on a "personal improvement plan" which the entire company knows you're next to be fired.

    Cons

    Mass firings. HR dept famous for asking you to sign rights away illegally and severance agreements are full of broken federal and state laws. Hire a lawyer, but know that their lawyers are bigger then yours and it won't get you much. They only want to screw you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What management? They've all been fired.

    Make it happen while thriving in ambiguity with a humble attitude

    Pros

    The rates on health benefits for PPO BCBS coverage are way better than when I was with other huge CPG companies. Participate in their wellness program and you will save thousands in healthcare expenses if you are an employee in the U.S.. The founders values are to respect everyone at no matter what level which is refreshing in other highly bureaucratic large CPG environments.

    Cons

    Due to a fast paced and innovative environment their are not a lot of written policies in place so it's a bit of a leap of faith in some areas. If you are someone who can't thrive in ambiguity it might be a tough transition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Onboarding needs to be more automated.

    I worked at Mark Anthony Group as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Technology is excellent and ALL people 'EXCEPT MANAGEMENT' are great. A lot of the staff have been here a long time and most are very helpful, cheerful and just nice people.

    Cons

    The management show no appreciation, encouragement, communication or any willingness to integrate anyone who is new into the team. That makes it appear there is no 'team' here. There is no time set aside for anyone new or to provide them any onboarding. Senior staff come off as unhelpful, dis-interested in your well-being and frankly don't give a damn about you as long as you do your tasks. No acknowledgement of how complex some requirements may be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn to play as a team rather than treating talented resources as thumb tacks. You might be surprised. Also, to provide encouragment and integrate new and talented people. It's not just about the assignment these new staff are to complete - if you spend 30 minutes in a week to make them feel like they belong here - they might surprise you. As it is, good luck! Nice place but shame about some senior staff.

    Pros

    Learning to be flexible, as the schedule changes happen so much, that becomes a challenge to be able to meet the requirements, so if you need to learn flexibility this will definitely be the place

    Cons

    No much incentives in general

    Pros

    Basically there is no pros in working here. If you really need money and you have no other job offer and have one from Mark Anthony then accept it. But make sure you keep looking for another job and quit this company as soon as possible.

    Cons

    Hostile and slavery environment. Right hand doesn't know what the left had is doing. Disorganized. Work here only if you have given up on your family, friends and your whole life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't step on my head to go up the ladder of success!!!
