    Pros

    Modest autonomy and exciting breadth of exposure to complete product management for a recent college grad.
    Great pay for the industry.

    Cons

    Everything else!

    Management is replete with literally the worst possible individuals: the head nodders that always defer to their superior, are terrified to think creatively or make out-of-the-box suggestions, and worst of all, have downright terrible personalities.

    The products and non-innovative 1980's approach to direct mail is, at this point, embarrassing for a company that recruits such top tier brains.

    Are not now, nor will they be in the future, a growing company either in revenues or profits. Everyone knows this, but upper management somehow convinces themselves its not the case.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing can change these people. Absolutely nothing. To the good ones: get out while you're still in your 30's. A career at MBI is a sad life.

    Pros

    The compensation makes up for some of the uninspiring products and work that you do at this collectibles and tchotchke company. Some of the leaders are great and very knowledgeable with a ton of high level experience and past resumes. Everyone should be smart and have gone to an Ivy or other esteemed school.

    Cons

    The hours are rough and the so called work life balance at this company doesn't exist considering the fact that it's a marketing company. There are frustrations with some of the methodology and unwritten rules at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers are great but others are not helpful to your career. Peter does a fine job, but be wary of the future, because collectibles are not the future. Having groups compete within the same company for the same resources is not bettering the company, it's just creating competition for competition's sake.
