    I worked at Mercury New Media full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The team at Mercury is really top notch! Everyone is smart and always willing to help each other out when problems arise. I would happily work with any of them again. Leadership is always making improvements to the tools and process that the company uses to get work done and they regularly collect and act on feedback from team members about what is and isn't working. The quarterly review process is great as it...

    Mercury has large clients, but is a relatively smaller firm making for some stressful situations because of the amount of incoming work. To their credit though, Mercury is actively recruiting and hiring to grow their team always
