    I worked at MRY full-time

    Pros

    First and foremost, the people. Everyone at MRY is genuine and supportive. They want you to succeed and really see every project as a team effort. There is opportunity for everyone who shows the will and ambition for it. Coworkers feel like family.

    Cons

    It's in the process of rebuilding itself after some big changes, but it's strong, smart and creative enough to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Really enjoy the new moves to start more open communication/dialogue between the various departments.

    I worked at MRY full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked at MRY for a very long time, so i saw it go from an amazing, funky startup to a corporate, desperate social shop. I state that because the Pros are mostly from the early years working here.

    I will say that culture has always been a focus, but lately, instead of being about camaraderie and group activities, its centered around a beer fridge and drinking. If drinking is your thing, and you want to drink at work...here you go.

    Cons

    There is no growth opportunities at MRY anymore. They are no longer loyal to employees ever since they got their 3rd CEO, and it is an 'every man for himself' atmosphere. Management is a mess, and no one can give you answers about the future of the company. Its a restless, nervous working environment.

    Lack of a true HR department made it difficult to have someone to turn to when things felt off.

    Long hours, unrealistic deadlines and lack of leadership got old fast.

    Every pitch felt like it was a 'make or break' for the company finances.

    Egos.

    NOTE: The CEO listed below is not the current CEO. Any ratings should not be associate with Matt Britton since he left the company years ago.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to create a plan for the future of the company and be transparent about what is going on. People shouldnt have to be afraid of their bosses or think they will lose their job if the pitch wasnt successful. Be loyal to long term employees instead of having this churn and burn attitude.

    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.

    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.
