I have been working at Marketing Werks full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Wonderful culture, great for anyone just out of school, most everyone is very nice and easy-going, coming to work is fun, you get to keep travel miles and get to book personal hotel and flights (so you can use preferred chains), work can be challenging and fun

Cons

Poor day-to-day management, some teams make it easy to get by without doing a lot of work, feels like a high school clique at times, weekend travel with little to no "reset" time or vacation compensation, lots of travel in general, no real sense of urgency until the last minute, enforcement of policy is lacking, very high turnover rate, bonuses that make you feel worse than not getting one at all.

Advice to Management

The upper management is absolutely wonderful and very approachable, however day-to-day management needs more training. Marketing Werks wastes a lot of money and time by not properly training manager. Additionally, the company recently implemented Marketing Werks University, but a lot of the classes are not well structured - they should have more structure, be more professional and be mandatory. Once you become an Account Manager, your opportunities for growth and development within the company taper off unless you get moved to a piece of new business to run yourself - this needs to change to keep people around.

    I have been working at Marketing Werks as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is very laid back and fun. Work attire is basically anything you want to wear. Great location in downtown Chicago. Majority of the employees are young.

    Cons

    The hourly wage for interns is not much, but that could be ok for the interns who are still in school and still getting support from their parents. Pay is barely enough if you are paying for your own rent and other living expenses. Sometimes I feel micro-manged as an intern. You have to work your way up to a full-time job position.


  2. "Great experience!"

    I have been working at Marketing Werks as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have some great clients and the company culture is awesome. As an intern, you will learn a lot about how to work with a major client and be able to experience agency work. Ability to look into other programs and even work events.

    Cons

    MW is very last minute in notifying you about anything, take quite some time to get a response. Moving up to a full time MW employee takes quite some time, field experience during their tours is a requirement.
