I have been working at Merkle full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Merkle is very fast paced due to the growth and goal to constantly be the best and provide the best service to our customers, and for the overachievers that the company employs, it's perfect. If you fall outside of the overachiever personality, the Merkle culture may be too much for you. For the rest of us, it provides the perfect opportunity to be constantly challenged, grow, and experience a diverse set of problems, clients, and colleagues.

Cons

Merkle says its culture is polarizing, you either love it or hate it. I 100% agree and think that per my above "pros", if you aren't type A and an overachiever, you will probably be on the hate it side. That means employees get to work with the smartest, hardest working employees in the market, however it does create an attrition problem for those not cut out for the culture.

Advice to Management

Be more involved and available. Take the time to listen bottom up.

    Pros

    Get to experience working with clients across many industries. A lot of flexibility, very good work/ life balance. Strong culture and values. Friendly work environment.

    When things get slow, it is SLOW, especially as a junior level. May require some nights and weekends.

    Upper management could do a better job with resourcing and time allocation.
