Mission: We do great work so we can do good things.
Here is a link to the latest blog by our CEO, Monica C. Smith. It’s on a subject that touches us all, but women in business a bit differently—aging. In it Monica shares some thoughts on the positive side of this topic and her experience as a woman business-owner, mother, confidante, entrepreneur and philanthropist.
We participated in Bring Your Child to work Day here at Marketsmith. It was a day filled with fun, family and giving the kids a taste of what their parents do. Well, a small taste...it was mostly fun. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ6QG #bringyourchildtoworkday
If one picture is worth a thousand words, this page has plenty to say. From air hockey tournaments to anniversary celebrations, there’s always something happening at Marketsmith worth shouting about! Enjoy our album.

How You Can Help
We’re proud of the good work our employees do, but the fact is the groups on this page can use far more help than we alone can give. We encourage you to click on the links below, and join us in making our communities better places to live for everyone.

One More Smith was founded by Amy Allan Smith and Monica C. Smith as a “forever home” to feral animals and animals rescued from kill shelters. It is One More Smith’s belief that animals should never be euthanized for lack of space or medical issues. We urge everyone to support One More Smith in providing care for these deserving animals.

I have been working at Marketsmith full-time (Less than a year)
People-first mentality: hire the right people, treat them well, give them resources & tools to be successful. Be open and listen to your employees - that’s what they do and it shows.
Everyone has a voice, whether you’re fresh out of school and it’s your first job, or you’ve been there since the beginning.
Interesting & exciting client mix; the work is fun.
Creative department is extremely talented and works so well with the accounts team. It shows in the work.
My personal favorite is that if you need a break from your desk, you can take your laptop and work from the comfy couches, or the picnic tables outside, or the tables in the back with the windows wide open. Nobody has you under your thumb, and you’re free to get into your own groove - as long as you’re working hard, meeting deadlines, and doing your job, they want you to be able to do that in an environment that is pleasant.
I can guarantee my worst day will be better than my best day at my previous company.
Agency life isn’t for those who don’t want to work hard (and play hard!). Yes, there will be late nights. If you just want a “job” this isn’t the place for you.
Advice to Management
Keep bringing in smart, interesting, talented new hires.
I applied online. I interviewed at Marketsmith in June 2017.
Met with 4 people over 2 separate interviews. I was asked to give over an email by an administrative assistant ss#, birthdate as so forth. No response after references were checked, and was told that I was highly recommended......HR should be involved a little more. Odd process, have a very bad impression of this company.
