    I have been working at MRY full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    On the up-and-up after some really cool new business wins and expanding work from current clients. Has hired a mix of flashy talker-types and genuinely super-smart people into leadership. Tons of opportunity for growth; they really want to support ambitious talent. Best culture of any agency in NYC--coworkers are fam.

    Cons

    Occasional department strife, especially since creative rolls deep.

    Advice to Management

    Shore up all departments and show people in the smaller departments you're behind them too.

    Pros

    Fun work environment, friendly people, passion for creative, innovative thinkers and excellent clients. This company will push you to be better every day.

    Cons

    I loved working here, but for some the firm may seem small. In my opinion it is the perfect size.

    I have been working at MRY full-time

    Pros

    Some of the most dedicated and teamwork-focused people I've ever worked with. Typical agency political BS is frowned upon. New creative leadership and new CEO who genuinely seem to have their hearts and heads in the right place. On the up and up after some turbulence, and have been on a real new business streak. Real strategy chops and strong creative talent.

    Cons

    The past year of senior management turnover and client departures have contributed to negative press and staff churn.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on new business, and reward and compensate the talent you have to avoid future staff departures.

    Pros

    It's not a ton of work and it is cool to work with Coca-Cola as a brand in general.

    Cons

    The supervisors don't communicate well and don't plan ahead. they expected my team to drop everything last minute to work out a project. Being in school i needed deadlines and clear explanation of what I needed to do to get something done. Made us pick up all of the 20 cases of Coca-Cola and fit a place to put it ourselves.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more clear of what you want done and have a better way to communicate.

    I worked at MRY full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    MRY is a company you root for, you want to succeed. People who worked there, when they leave many feel as though they are leaving a family. It's going through some turbulence but I hope that heart prevails and they bounce back in a way that I think it can. It is a company that is built around a culture and a certain entrepreneurial spirit.

    Cons

    You're joining a company in rebuilding mode and you need to approach it with the idea that you are a part of that new mission. That means a lot of trial and error.

    Advice to Management

    This is a people business, focus on that.

    Pros

    This is one of the best groups I've people I've worked with, practically all great at what they do. They've earned a lot of respect in the industry, bolstered by strong marketing. Excellent design chops. Deep bench in strategy.

    Cons

    Some staff turnover has created a bit of added drama there.

    Advice to Management

    Redouble biz dev efforts and keep up what you're doing in marketing
