    I have been working at MECLABS full-time

    Pros

    You'll see a lot of negative reviews from people who are upset. Let me break it down for you- we had a large client who left suddenly and needed to reduce workforce to balance the books. This is TOTALLY NORMAL. Yes it's not ideal but businesses often have to do a round of layoffs-especially when a big contact is lost. So don't believe all the craziness people are writing. They are just upset. MECLABS gives young...

    Cons

    If you are not ready to be stretched and challenged don't come here. It's not for people who just want an easy paycheck with no growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees.

      I have been working at MECLABS full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      There used to be a lot of good things about this place. Now I can't think of any. Even the people aren't fun anymore as everyone has been fired, they quit, or are currently miserable.

      Cons

      They work you to death and really don't care about you even though they claim they do. And on top of all that you might not get paid. Guaranteed you will be paid late at least. It has come to the point where a lot of employees are making the decision to work til 10pm (or later) or have dinner with their family. That should never be the norm. Company is bleeding money and in deep debt. I am convinced the CEO doesn't...

      Advice to Management

      I really can't add anything that other people haven't already mentioned in reviews here. I guess I would say actually listen to your employees? But we all know that won't happen.

      Pros

      What makes MECLABS is its people. They are incredibly smart and some of the nicest people you will meet. Also, MECLABS will challenge you to grow. It is not one of those places where you can just coast at a job. You will be pushed to grow, particularly in your marketing and leadership skills. I love it, but it’s not for everyone.

      Cons

      Drama from a few previous employees who have decided to attack the CEO on Glassdoor and other places. There are some negative reviews on here that could be helpful, they are being overshadowed by just some ridiculously exaggerated accusations. I can understand being upset if I got let go by someone, but that’s no reason to attack them. As for my opinion of MECLABS, I have worked here for a few years now and I personally...

      Advice to Management

      Reach out to Glassdoor about the false accusations. They would seem to not meet the Glassdoor guidelines and may be persuading some good people not to work here. Some of the reviews would probably even qualify legally as libel.

      I worked at MECLABS full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Still has amazing potential as an institute of learning and not just thought of as an agency. Learn more about marketing then you ever could in a marketing master’s degree program if you put in the effort. Any business venture is a calculated gamble, as is employment at a business. You have the opportunity to learn things here that are extremely valuable in a variety of marketing jobs and organizations.

      Cons

      Glassdoor used as social dumpster. Of course there are real issues here, just as with any highly successful organization which has been in business for two decades in a competitive market. Too much focus on the past, keep the organization and the people you have focused on the future.

      Advice to Management

      Learn from the past and move on. Live in the present, make the most of the future, and leave the big suitcase filled with mistakes and negativity outside. We all lost great friends and colleagues, but that is business. Not for the faint of heart. Not everyone will be understanding and those of us let go have a right to be scared. But always grateful for the chance to be a part of something special. Embrace the challenges...

      As everyone likes to say, it was definitely the people.

      Cons

      Those people have all left.

      Advice to Management

      Pay back the people you owe money to and declare bankruptcy. In all seriousness, there is no advice that would help or that they would take.

      Pros

      Some of the people I've worked with are pretty awesome.

      Cons

      Company has had layoffs recently and still can't pay people on time. Here I am once again, waiting on my late paycheck. This company is a joke. Anyone who thinks otherwise should be evaluated, as they do not possess the cognitive ability to discern between right and wrong. Completely shameful, and this company is becoming a blemish on my resume. I think I'd much rather have an employment gap than to list them as a company...

      Pros

      A few good people work there....Or have worked there. I found a new career before the train derailed

      Cons

      Customers willing to jump out of the plane without a parachute Flint is hands down the single most deceptive human on the planet To make matters worse, he doesn’t shut up Not sure anyone there actually does anything...but it’s not entirely their fault, see comment above re: Flint Flint asks his employees to put positive comments on Glassdoor If you’re still reading this and you go there go work you are an idiot

      Advice to Management

      They have management? If anyone is still there I’d leave before the building collapses.
