I recently received an offer from iProspect (part of Dentsu) I’ve heard ups and downs about this company. I currently work for a great company and not sure if I should leave. The new opportunity pays a lot more than I currently make. Does anyone have any advice about this company and whether I should take the job or not?

    It is not easy, but it is extreamly rewarding

    Aug 30, 2016 - Manager in Grand Rapids, MI
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I have been at MMG for a number of months now. It certainly has not been easy, but I did not expect that it would be. The work environment is open, extremely flexible, and comfortable. Almost everyone is engaged and helpful. What we are doing at MMG is not easy and certainly not for the faint of heart, but if you are willing to put the effort forward your will succeed. The main reason I have chosen to write this review is because I feel that most of the assessments on here regarding management have been extremely unfair. The marketing industry has been in a constant shift for well over a decade now. How many industries have you worked in where such a shift was occurring? If you are not changing frequently trying to keep pace with that shift you are falling behind. If you are falling behind then you are not succeeding and you will eventually go out of business. MMG is not only succeeding, but they are way ahead of their competition.

    Cons

    The continual evolution in the work environment is not for everyone. If you are up for the challenge it can be a very rewarding career.
