IF YOU LIKE ORDINARY, WE'RE NOT FOR YOU

If "beyond comfort" thrills you, if "expanding possible" attracts, then you'll do your best work here.

You'll do it because we'll provoke you, challenge you and unashamedly ask for more. We believe there are no limits for passion, imagination and wonder. And it's only when we explore the unknown that we can truly thrive.

That's why we're so passionate about investing in our people to help them thrive collectively and individually.

We'll reach out and help you explore the uncharted because that's where ideas flourish. It's where people and brands grow.

You owe it to yourself and we owe it to our clients. It's the MEC way.

DON'T JUST LIVE. THRIVE.

    I have been working at MEC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people i've ever worked with and great clients. But what makes MEC great is its unique culture, it's difficult to put your finger on exactly what it is that makes the culture tick, whether its people coming together to solve particular problems or just a good old knees up at the summer party. Excited to see what fresh opportunities the merger is going to bring!

    Cons

    Used to be communication but that seems to have turned a corner recently

    Advice to Management

    keep talking!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MEC (San Francisco, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process for fairly straightforward. However, the interviewers were very unprofessional. The hiring manager was very condescending and kept trying to undermine my qualifications. She came under prepared to the interview without even reading my resume and had the audacity to ask redundant questions that made no sense. I am glad they didn't make an offer.
