    I worked at Moroch full-time

    Pros

    Extremely smart and talented people and leadership. Still independent. Forward thinking towards innovation. Makes efforts to retain employees with a fun culture. Aesthetically modern and pleasing environment to work in. Good energy and passion. Great client work and some great accounts. Bilingual sister agency Inspire offers multicultural exposure opportunities.

    Cons

    Clients can limit innovation opportunities due to budgets. Tendency for leadership to talk the talk but not walk the walk regarding their stated principals and values. Leadership is driven and motivated more by money vs. values. It's the advertising business after all, not an industry recognized for its integrity, so not surprising. Advertising does attract dysfunctional people by its nature. Politic heavy as well. Some positions are tough to maintain work/life balance in. Pay scales can be average to low depending on position, expecting employees to love what they do to make up for compensation. Others with high expectations for delivering are paid market or above. They take advantage wherever they can to reduce staffing costs, which is typical.

    Advice to Management

    Get a mission statement and principals you can truly inspire with and live, not just give lip service to, for holistic success. Trust is a two way investment between leadership and employees. Despite economic downturns and business evolution, it still may be possible to invest in quality leadership talent more aligned with integrity and some honesty vs. short sighted cost cutting strategies that disrespect employees and ultimately harm morale. Dallas is not the largest ad community, after all. Reputation and word gets around. What goes around can potentially come back around.

    I have been working at Moroch full-time

    Pros

    Semi flexible schedule. Fun office atmosphere.

    Cons

    Management doesn't really care about their employees altough they say they do. The company has gotten too large for that. Not much room for grown and/or training.

    I worked at Moroch full-time

    Pros

    Their offices are located in a convenient part of Dallas. Fun place to work at or at least just pass the time, depends who you are.

    Cons

    There is not much training or communication for new employees. Teams form little cliques and don't collaborate outside of them. A few people on a team get stuck doing the majority of the work, while others FB or Snapchat the day away. Some people seem burnt out and simply go through the motions to get by, they appear to have conformed to providing clients with mediocre work and results. There's quite a bit of nepotism and high turn over. Salaries are also pretty low.

    I worked at Moroch full-time

    Pros

    None at all. Awful environment.

    Cons

    Reviews with multi-stars and great ratings on this site are the work of their PR people in order to stave off honest reviews and who spend all day purging anything negative on the web and field office people who are clueless about the company.

    Pros

    Some huge clients. Great location. Great depth of agency- lots of departments contributing together.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Intrenched management. Salaries being eaten up by people that don't do much. Uneven spread of the work load- this company won't hire up for teams that need help but keep too many employees in departments that don't need the help.

    Advice to Management

    Too much management eating up salaries. Eliminate some of the long-standing generic managers to make room for fresh ideas and work horses.

    I have been working at Moroch full-time

    Pros

    location and if you are in the cool kids club than you are good.. if not, it's a going to be a short stay. I've seen many people leave in the 2 years and they don't seem to give anybody a chance to stay or to fit in the role.

    Cons

    Pay, Travel and the meeting for the meeting for the meeting. Everyone is frustrated, sales have not been good for 3 years so we are the punching bag. It's not a true advertising company as compared to others. You will work 50-60 hrs and get paid for 40. You will mostly put decks together and gather information to put in the decks and than have many meeting to discuss how bad the decks look, re-do decks, have more meetings about the decks...it seems that our company gets blamed for everything wrong. Creative does not understand mid-west and that is the problem. How can creative people and powers to be have input when they do not know Midwest people and culture? It's not New York, Dallas or LA. Just be ready to be blamed. I've seen many good people fired or quit in the past couple of years and it's crazy

    Advice to Management

    make the people that work want to stay here and make them believe they are part of the team. the whole team.

    I worked at Moroch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great branding, if only they lived up to it. Nothing about the brand is what you will experience. Run as fast as you can. They will promise anything but deliver very little.

    Cons

    Long hours, little strategic thinking, poor, inexperienced leadership. I have never worked anywhere that had such poor integrity. A true disappointment. Employees are disregarded and kicked to the curb at any time. Little regard for people, process or thinking. If you want to contribute and have a strategic mind this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire good people, let them do their jobs. Empower them, provide them the tools they need. Act with integrity and stand up for your people. Right now this agency does not have a lot to offer employees or clients. Very behind the times in about every area of the company.

    I have been working at Moroch full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company culture can't be beat. Definitely a family environment and there are monthly agency happy hours to get everyone to come together. Company benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    The pay could be better. It's also hard to feel that family environment being in a field office. Also, it's really hard to grow past being a junior/mid level staff member. Trying to move within departments isn't easy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being accessible and hold supervisors accountable to uphold company policies/principles.

    I worked at Moroch full-time

    Pros

    there are some genuine folks at that agency that are loyal and will bust their rear end to no avail. i admire them for sticking with it but i feel sorry for them because i know in the long run their hard work won't pay off and they will be left on the curb with nothing to show for it. the other pro is that drinking is heavily encouraged which will help you get through the day (first friday's are actually mandatory and they will walk around the office to make sure you are attending and not doing work). dress code isn't really a thing. and if you have personal stuff going on you can probably work out a way to work from home or take time off but mainly because your boss is on vacation most of the time or traveling and couldn't care less if you are in the office. so there's no accountability which to some is a good thing. also, hr is basically going into extinction. if you're lucky you may see one wandering around the halls but it's like spotting sasquatch. you think you saw them and you heard a rumor but it probably didn't happen.

    Cons

    this company is full of senior level people acting like children. they don't get along with each and it's painfully obvious to those who work underneath them. they talk about putting theories about collaboration and digital integration into practice but nothing ever comes to fruition. quite frankly it's a joke. how many power points are you going to make this agency sit through again? and when will you have someone spell check your work? this company is so stuck in their ways and only serve clients who are comfortable with producing awful work through practices long since retired by far better agencies. this place will probably implode around itself because of it's hesitancy to change and progress. it's kind of like the curious case of benjamin buttons. why are you moving backwards!?! i just don't understand. nepotism runs rampant. to know that a 20-something year old, fresh out of college kid is brought on because of a relationship with a senior manager - whether family member or friend of the family - and not because of their talent is immensely frustrating. and they are so open about that it's insane. they literally will tell you "find a place for them." really guys? and more frustrating than that is to know that they are (1) making money than you - even if you are further up the totem pole - and (2) won't listen to you or heed to your instructions and just run up to the person who brought them onboard crying because they have to actually do work. the whole place is full of sexiest/prejudice/racist/inappropriate behavior (by senior management no less) and hr does nothing about it but that's because they are on the endangered species list as mentioned above. in fact, upper management encourages "cool" behavior. they like it when their staff cusses or yells or screams or blares music in the hall. since when was annoying "cool"? but don't think about reporting it because you will be crucified for doing the right thing. lastly, talk about a joke of a remodel. the place looks like a four year old was given permission to color on the walls. the whole place is an eye sore and they even thought it would be cute to make exposed ceilings of ceilings that weren't meant to be exposed by just taking the tiles out. really guys? that's just silly, give me a break.

    Advice to Management

    stop kidding yourselves and grow up.
