  • CMB's Erica Carranza, Ph.D. on identity: “[A]s a consumer, if you don’t like the kind of person you think drinks Jäger, you’re not going to drink it yourself,” Carranza said. “That’s because consumers aren’t just asking themselves, ‘What brand do I want to use?’ At a deeper level, they’re asking: ‘Do I want to be the kind of person who uses this brand?’ To really attract new consumers, brands have to give them a tribe that they want to belong to.” http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQuyY

    Can Jägermeister's Bold Rebranding Effort Shake Off the Brand's Long-Standing Frat Bro Image?

    Jägermeister is fully aware of how it's been perceived over the past several decades-and how it's been celebrated at frat parties on college campuses across the country. From Jäger-bombs to shots, the liquor is arguably less known for its complex flavor profile than it is for its party vibes.

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:

CMB CARES

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.

Movember

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

    Pros

    - Amazing company culture. People are smart, collaborative and fun. Many employees leave for other opportunities and later come back.
    - The company has continuously offered me growth opportunities to enhance my career.
    - Exciting projects across varied industries. No day is the same. The work is challenging and continues to push me.
    -Company size allows for access to all levels of the organization and an opportunity to really be heard.

    Cons

    - The company is smallish so doesn't offer the number of titles of a large organization and can be hard for those who equate growth with title changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working through the forward looking strategy to meet industry demands and continue attracting the accounts like we have today.
