Marina Maher Communications – Why Work For Us?


We are a deeply committed and somewhat quirky bunch of content creators, brand builders, storytellers, experientialists, artists, mad data scientists, tech junkies and trend sensors, all armed with powerful ideas and a strong point of view.

 

OUR VALUES

Be Relentlessly Curious.

Create Always. Innovate often.

Be Agile and Responsive...Now.

Celebrate Success and Embrace Failure.

Build Together.

ARTFULLY PERSUASIVE

Used to be, you talked, they listened. Now you’re lucky to engage even for a moment. So we must make people feel something so strongly, we’re able to influence the way they think and behave.

At MMC, we call this being artfully persuasive. And we believe it makes all the difference
between making things people want to see and the things they’re forced to see.

It’s all about changing behavior. We’re experts at applying the kind of influence that shapes perception and drives action. Simply put: getting target A to think, say or do B in order to benefit our clients.


CONTENT WITH PURPOSE

Great content starts with a deep understanding of our target’s behaviors, barriers and triggers. This goes well beyond social listening — we apply behavioral science and social ethology to everything we do. We believe this is the only way to create and distribute content powerful enough to change how people think, feel and act.

 

THE ART AND SCIENCE OF INFLUENCE

We don’t automate our recommendations, and we don’t sell influence by the tweet. We use proprietary data and analytics to identify the best influencers for our brands and their audiences. Together, we create content that earns its way into people’s hearts and minds, with a level of impact that’s impossible to match.


RISE // REAL-TIME STRATEGY AND THE MICRO-MOMENT

More than just another industry acronym, our RISE Model (Real-time, Insight-driven, Strategic Engagement) leverages the true power of social: Identifying the perfect mix of Earned Media, Influencers and Consumer Advocates and amplifying these voices with targeted paid media to jump-start the virality of our message, while finding relevant micro-moments for them to be heard in ways that influence our audiences.


*Official IBM Watson Partner

CONSUMER

For more than 35 years, MMC has helped build some of the world’s most powerful consumer brands. Our longest-standing client is P&G. In this 30-year relationship, we’ve grown from handling one brand to more than 10 brands globally.


HEALTHCARE

Over the past 20 years, MMC has built an industry-leading healthcare practice. We bring together our expertise in consumer marketing, with a deep grounding in science, healthcare and regulatory knowledge. Our breakthrough programs for OTC, Rx medicines, devices and diagnostics spur conversations and mobilize brand advocates across all channels.


CORPORATE BRAND

When it comes to the Corporate brand, reputation is everything. Whether we are developing the corporate narrative that brings the brand to life, driving social conversation with key stakeholders, showcasing meaningful CSR initiatives or engaging employees, our focus is on influence as much as on impact.


MARKETING TO WOMEN

No one outperforms MMC in connecting with women. Over the past 35 years, we’ve created more award-winning, category-altering programs in this space than any other communications agency. How? By artfully tapping into the cultural nuances and building emotional connections that influence the mindset and purchase decisions of women.

OUR WORK

Our work enters people’s lives on their terms, creating authentic value, so they want to engage with, share and care about our clients’ brands and products. It turns prospects into customers and customers into advocates.

The proof is in the hardware with eight Effies and over 80 agency, creative and social media awards since 2014, including: Consumer Agency of the Year and Creative Agency of the Year from The Holmes Report; Best Places to Work by Ad Age and PR News; four CLIOs and numerous integrated, digital and social media awards. Also, in 2014, Marina Maher was inducted into the PRWeek Hall of Fame.

    I have been working at Marina Maher Communications full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are some of the most passionate and dedicated I have come across in agency—to the work, clients, people. When you work at an agency, you want your team to be your family, your manager to be your advocate—and that exists here.

    Because there's a mix of employees from non-PR backgrounds, you get to learn something new every day. There's lots of mobility if you want to learn a new skill, and many employees have successfully transferred departments.

    Type A personalities do well here, and as one myself, it's refreshing to be among colleagues who have agile, problem-solving mindsets and high levels of creativity. This is a committed bunch who hustle so they can catch a SoulCycle during the week.

    Client are great, and relationships vary from new to long-standing, and many see us as trusted partners, which makes the work all that more pleasurable.

    Marina is a true entrepreneur: resilient, tenacious, always with an eye on what's next. She has more involvement than other CEOs I have worked with, and it's that level of attention that trickles down from the top.

    Cons

    With big clients, there's the expected red tape and processes to learn and work through.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in and rewarding your great employees through learning and development opportunities

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Marina Maher Communications (New York, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was approached by a head hunter about the opportunity and the process from start to finish took about 2 weeks. The team was delightful and super accommodating (met with me after office hours). MMC seems to be all about energy, drive and passion so if you go in with those 3 things in mind you’ll be set up to wow them.
