Mission: Our mission is to be the engine behind the world’s most engaged brands. We craft the stories and experiences that influence the way people think, feel and behave.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

For more than 30 years, MMC has helped build some of the world’s most powerful consumer brands. Our longest-standing client is P&G. In this 25-year relationship, we’ve grown from handling one brand to more than 10 brands globally.
Over the past 15 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.
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.
No one outperforms MMC in connecting with women. Over the past 30 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 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 75 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 a year)
From agency culture, to work-life-balance, to growth opportunities, MMC really does have it all. I've worked at a lot of different agencies, non of which were as employee-friendly/focused as MMC. Below are some of the many PROs that I've seen in my time here:
- The agency culture is amazing. Even though the agency has just over 200 employees, it acts and feels as if it's 10-20. Everyone knows each other and treats each other like extended family. It also helps that every holiday (big and small) is celebrated with a party or event.
- MMC focuses on employee growth by providing lots of training opportunities. They encourage and provide training to learn new skills as well as polish old ones. I.E., Excel 101 refresher.
- MMC focuses on bringing in new talent with different career backgrounds (inside and outside of PR) and encourages everyone to learn from each other.
- While late nights are rare, when they happen the whole team pitches in so that the job gets done faster and everyone goes home earlier.
- MMC has hands-down the best holiday/time off policy that I've seen in the industry.
Culture is an important part of the agency. Don't expect to keep your head down, just get your job done and go home. This isn't as much a con as it is advice to embrace the agency culture and get involved with the different events.
Advice to Management
Keep focusing on culture as the agency grows. MMC's culture is the best I've seen in the industry. It makes me want to come to work every day. Also, keep providing growth opportunities and focusing on employees' growth.
The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Marina Maher Communications.
The first interview I had went really, the second (more serious one) seemed like they didn't care- it was only 20 minutes. They also got back to me 15 days after they said they would
