    I worked at Maritz full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The campus is very nice and continually being updated.
    The Company is essentially 4 entities allowing movement between different companies.
    Parking if free and on location.
    Online or live Microsoft training is continually offered. Live training occurs in a very updated lab.

    Cons

    Continual transitioning of employees and processes.
    Every process is continually modified/changed/fixed to accommodate client offers. A procedural document is near impossible to maintain. These are not improvements they are more custom fixes. Time management is lost when attempting to make a process work for a single client. Overall standardization's are not followed.
    Staff turnover is often.
    Pay is not in line with the standard and pay increases were not annual.

    I worked at Maritz (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at this company allows you to see everything in local offices, but management isn't flexible and difficult to work with sometimes

    Cons

    I've had quite a few instances where things were done incorrectly but there's no culture to want to fix them. People just do their jobs and don't really care about the story they are presenting. Tracking studies are the norm...

    Advice to Management

    Adjust the portfolio and hire from within. Build trust in teams and allow them a bit more autonomy.

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

    Pros

    There's a lot of flexibility here, which is great if you have kids/a family. It's also a great place to "get your start" in the working world. The people are awesome and the work atmosphere is fairly laid back and low stress, depending on your position.

    Cons

    Below average pay (but could be worth it for the work-life balance) and not a lot of transparency from leadership. I experienced a lot of change and organizational shake-ups in my time at Maritz and I just wish the company was more transparent about it. I also think their succession planning needs a lot of work. I, along with a lot of other young talent, left because there wasn't a clear line of sight into our upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent and encourage everyone, of all ages, to move up and grow. You have great people and potential leaders at Maritz and I want them to realize their full potential - you should, too.

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

    Pros

    Nice people
    Large company
    ok benefits
    when i worked overtime my boss let me take extra days off but i don't believed equaled out so thats why its also in my cons
    My pay was high for my field and experience.

    Cons

    Has no sense of unified branding; There is a reason the most asked question is what does Maritz do
    No one knows what any one else does unless they are in their small group
    i worked overtime about every week did not get paid for overtime

    Advice to Management

    Find who you are as a company. Corporate management was fine but Maritz Motivational Solutions most of them seem lost and i felt it created a huge disconnect.
