    Flexible, good work life balance

    Jun 25, 2022 - Digital Strategy Manager in Grand Rapids, MI
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I've really enjoyed my time at MLive. I feel management cares about people, and ensures we have a good balance between work and personal life. The flexibility of working from home, even when offices opened back up, is appreciated, and they've taken great steps to add diversity and inclusion efforts, increase mental health benefits, and paid parental leave now extending to fathers. The ad tech is unmatched and campaigns generally deliver strong performance.

    Cons

    While turnover has greatly reduced in the last few years, when a key team member leaves, it can greatly affect everyone until the ship steadies.
