    Pros

    A very team-oriented place to work. Management really appreciates the work you do, and everyone comes together to get projects done. You feel appreciated.

    Cons

    I didn't really experience any.

    I worked at Maritz (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great team, great manager, good experience.

    Cons

    The constant fear of what business model is next made layoffs a negative feeling. Accidentally ran script which affected very few (less than 1%) people and the next day I was let go. Awarded the highest individual award in 2010, worked my behind off for Maritz, and suddenly that all goes out the window.

    Advice to Management

    Please do right by your full time and dedicated employees.

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

    Pros

    People are great. Executives are nice to work with and personable. I am happy where I work but I think they could pay better.

    Cons

    Inadequate pay. Although the people are great it only goes so far when employees feel under appreciated based on how much money they make.
