    "Amazing Place to work"

    I have been working at MEC full-time


    The location and building itself is so modern which makes coming to work so motivating. The employees are so nice and there is no divide between you and the managers or any senior management. Also MECs clients are some of the biggest businesses in the world, overall MEC is an amazing place to gain experience in the media industry and work full time.


    Only slight issue of MEC would be that as there is so many employees it can be slightly daunting when you first start but everyone is so nice and welcoming settling in wont be an issue.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at MEC (Los Angeles, CA).


    Overall, the interview process was long and drawn and the employer eventually neglected to respond to emails about the status of an interview. While the company did seem like a cool and progressive place to work, the lack of response to inquiries was disheartening and showed a lack of care about potential employees especially considering the time invested.
