    I have been working at MRM Meteorite full-time

    Pros

    * Some really nice and fun people
    * Working among talented people
    * Nice offices great location bankside
    * An agency going through transition
    * Occasional perks such as Friday drinks, certain events e.g. summer party, Halloween, bake sales etc... This adds a bit of much needed comic relief.

    Cons

    * Sometimes seems like the company doesn't know its own vision
    * Senior management could have more of a face in the agency and be comfortable running regular agency meetings
    * A culture that is more defined. Celebrating the work but also being allowed to celebrate the fluffier aspects to agency life such as fun events etc.. we're not a sweatshop and sometimes it can feel like this owing to client …

    I worked at MRM Meteorite full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great leadership team.
    Decent work life balance - 9am - 6pm (usually getting out around 6pm)
    lots of social events throughout the month

    Cons

    not a creative agency but trying to be
    caught somewhere in between trying to be creative and trying to be data specialists. Currently neither label seems to fit when comparing to similar agencies.

    Pros

    Nice people
    Interesting capabilities all under one roof and great potential as an agency, definitely signs that the new management are going to take MRM places. Watch this space!

    Cons

    Below average pay
    Slow to promote

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to move away from an annual review approach to personal development to a more modern, project based 360 feedback system. And they should be much better about supporting the development of and rewarding the progress of junior staff.

    I worked at MRM Meteorite full-time

    Pros

    Hard working but fun loving people. Good mix of clients and disciplines.
    Lovely sociable cafe serving great coffee and food.

    Cons

    Senior management stretched, lack of direction but that may change significantly in the next 6-12 months.
    Lacking the fun factor and extra curricular it used to have.

    Advice to Management

    Rewards and motivation seem to have gone by the wayside - an agency is just a bunch of people who need to feel they are being valued and rewarded for their efforts.

    I worked at MRM Meteorite full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture of MRM Meteorite is great - fantastic charity parties, drinks on a Friday, everyone eats in the (good) canteen for lunch where it's buzzing.

    There are some really innovative projects that come along and it's what gets the creative department really excited.

    Cons

    Like any large agency, you have the churn in - churn out briefs. Banners and templated emails being on that list.

    Promotions can take a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Look after the hard workers, small rewards can go a long way! Be honest about any changes or pressure from the top of the group.

    Pros

    Leadership that actually listens and cares about the individual. Young dynamic company company with lot of social events.
    Being a large agency, there are opportunities to advance as it seems to be a meritocracy with the correct people being promoted (in my humble view).

    Cons

    The client I worked on was very demanding, so work/life balance was sometimes an issue. Other account groups were more fortunate!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communications to the staff to ensure they are clear on the strategic direction of the business.

    Lovely people. Decent offices. Trying to get a better work-life balance culture

    Cons

    Lots of useless boxes to tick - hard to get things done
