    Pros

    At MDC Partners, you work with teams of intelligent, passionate, creative and hard-working individuals. The CEO and upper management care about each employee and reward great work. It's a unique culture that has everyone contributing something worthwhile. Regarding training, MDC will cover the cost for continued education as long as it relates to an employees day to day role.
    Fair policies, benefits start from day one and PTO is generous.

    Cons

    My experiences with this company have been very positive thus far

    Have not experienced any negativity.

    Continue doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    MDC is a place that hires great people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. It is a group of nice people who work hard, and seem to care about their colleagues. The work environment is flexible as people are able to work remotely when needed. Compensation and benefits are very good. Lots of perks being in the office

    Cons

    If you are a person who only takes orders or needs a ton of direction, MDC might not be a great place. There is generally not someone hovering over you telling you the next assignment or task.

    Pros

    Work life balance, ok comp

    Cons

    Crappy benefits package, no shared service model, infrastructure (payroll, HR, IT) the worst I've ever seen; no business plan - just people running around buying companies. No real operating model. Huge egos, Just a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying companies, put together a real plan. Figure out the kind of culture you (really) want and manage to it

    Pros

    Competitive compensation package.
    Flexible work day.
    Always something different happening.
    Some awesome experiences. And one really bad one.

    Cons

    MDC is under capitalized. The company borrows money just to pay the dividends. We were always buying more companies. All the buying blurred the financial results. Some of the acquisitions didn't work.

    Advice to Management

    Stay with it. . Great group of partner companies.

    Pros

    My experience at this company was extremely positive. Everyone was very nice and willing to teach others how to improve their skills.

    Cons

    At the end of my internship, there was no full-time job opportunity, which was unfortunate because I had really enjoyed my time there.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on developing the young talent and create a hiring program out of the internship program.
