I worked at Merkley + Partners full-time (More than a year)
- Great community overall - Perfect place to start in media (assistants learn traditional and digital & are very hands on) - Great clients - Wonderful exposure to the industry - Array of experience - Welcoming culture - Large teams - Great location in the city - Contrary to some of the other reviews, I believe HR really works hard to help others and make sure all questions are answered with the utmost respect.
- On-boarding is very fast pace and minimal (just not enough time in one day) - Less opportunity (small agency) - Creative focused company - Long hours (like most) - A lot of learning in little time - A little more divided in workloads - Less time face-to-face with upper management
Advice to Management
Get to know your team. You are great to work with, however, they should not only see you when you have bad news to deliver. It would be nice to see you at some of the internal weekly team meetings or outings.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Merkley + Partners (New York, NY).
Interview was very informal, it was more about finding out if it was a personality and culture fit for the agency and for the specific account team. Met with HR and then full account team including Group Account Director, Account Director, and Supervisor.
