Heather Magaw
VP, Client Services

During my time at CMB, it’s not just the work I’ve enjoyed, it’s the sense of community. There’s a camaraderie in our work environment—we work hard together, and then we play together. Throughout my years here, I’ve been privileged to form friendships in addition to great working relationships

Laurie McCarthy
Senior Data Manager 

I value that I get a range of experiences in many different areas of marketing and market research. Regardless of position, I feel CMB is a place where your voice and vision can be heard.

Stephanie Kimball
Senior Marketing Manager

CMB is a great place to foster development. Starting as an associate, you are in meetings with everyone from the VPs to the CEO, all of whom know you by name and truly want you to succeed. They help you find the areas you’re interested and then give you opportunities to work in these areas. Plus, they chat with you about your favorite TV shows.

McKenzie Mann
Senior Associate Researcher

I’ve been at CMB for nearly 20 years.  I enjoy the work (helping our clients answer the ‘hard-to-answer’ questions), the ability to continually learn, interacting with marketers at world-class brands and working with innovative, collaborative, thoughtful colleagues at CMB. 

Judy Melanson
Travel and Entertainment Practice Leader


At CMB, we work with a select group of the world's leading brands. Here are some of our clients:


At Chadwick Martin Bailey, we believe it is very important to help out in the community and participate in local fundraisers and charity events. Bringing employees together by uniting for a cause has helped CMB work well as a team both in and outside of the office.

Recent Events

Light the Night Walk

We've been doing the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Light the Night Walk since 2008, and we have raised over $65,000 for LLS in the process. Read more about why and how we're involved.  

St. Francis House

Over the past few years, CMB employees have developed a relationship with the Sullivan Family Moving Ahead Program at the St. Francis House. The Moving Ahead Program (MAP) is a job-and life-skills training program that helps those who have experienced homelessness, mental illness, addiction, or incarceration develop the tools to prepare them to find and retain employment. CMBers help by simulating the job interview experience and providing feedback on everything from resumes to interview skills in order to help prepare participants for the final step in the program—applying and interviewing for a job.

Boys and Girls Club

For the past two years, CMB has conducted pro bono work for the Boys and Girls Club of Boston (BGCB), an organization whose mission is to help young people build strong character and realize their full potential as citizens and leaders. A few CMBers have also been a part of the Boys and Girls Club’s Evaluations and Outcomes committee, which serves to help refine data collection and assessment practices of BGCB’s programs and initiatives.


Each November, a handful of CMB gentlemen grow out their mustaches in the name of men's health.

Corporate Challenge

Each year, several CMBers run or walk in the annual J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge.

    I have been working at Chadwick Martin Bailey full-time (Less than a year)


    I am fairly new to the organization, but thought I'd share how impressed I am that their culture matches (and exceeds) what I was told during my interview sessions. What a great team CMB has and everyone is genuinely helpful and pleasant. The onboarding experience has been awesome. As soon as I walked through the door I could tell that a lot of team members put thought into what type of exposure and training I should receive. My manager took the time to meet with me first thing in the morning to go over current projects and expectations. Everyone has been super helpful and supportive.


    None that I can think of.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Chadwick Martin Bailey (Boston, MA) in September 2014.


    Initial phone interview with HR. Got invited in to meet with 3 people within organization from different areas. Mostly wanted to talk about past experience and get understanding of segmentation knowledge. They also spent time explaining what they did and how the company was organized. At end, gave case study to analyze. You needed to proof read it and give feedback on what was wrong with it.
