      Pros

      The benefits at MRM are amazing. The time off especially around the holidays is really great. The flexible schedule and work from home option was very nice. The ability to work with world class clients.

      Cons

      Be prepared to constantly change teams and have new bosses for no apparent reason. The middle management is bloated and inefficient. Good luck getting a hold of any of your bosses as they will be in meetings all day long. Work is feast or famine. You're either working until late in the night or twiddling your thumbs all day wondering how you are going to have enough billable hours so you don't get fired or laid off.

      Pros

      - My team were like family - Good social life at work (fun events, parties etc.) - Work life balance? I worked 20 hours a week max, but was paid for 40. The real work will be given to the same people repeatedly, so if you want to make money for nothing, go for it!

      Cons

      Awful pay, there is no room for career progression here, be aware that you will be treated solely as a number and when you are no longer needed, you will know about it. The agency is tailored to suit the needs of long time employees who really have no place here anymore. Fresh perspectives are not welcome and you will be spoken down to by those who think they're better than you (Head of strategy). They just had a round of layoffs and they are expecting more. Do NOT work here if you want a solid career. If you just need to pay the bills for a while, it's an okay option. Also please be aware most of the glassdoor reviews are posted by internal HR members because they are aware of their shortcomings.

      Pros

      Kind coworkers Bonus days off Decent benefits

      Cons

      Merit increases are impossible to obtain. Senior leadership refuses to answer questions that are critical of them. Examples of these questions would be: "The Senior Leadership Team has stated that promotions and merit increases are on hold for the time being. Are holiday bonuses for the Senior Leadership Team also on hold?" and "How does working with a company that supports child labor and slavery (Nestle) align with MRM’s Diversity and Inclusion initiative?"
