    Pros

    Not many pros to working here... maybe a few of the people I work with are very nice.

    Cons

    company lacks leadership. Communication to the masses is such propaganda. There is always an excuse for company-wide "no raises" or "only enough for 1 to 3% raises". Company needs to be sold to allow for new new executive leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Just sell already

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

    Pros

    The company was a good company to work for prior to 2000.

    Cons

    Don't care about the employee.
    Pay is very low.
    Its all about who you know, very clickish

    Advice to Management

    Stop reorganizing. Keep the good people you have and stop laying off people over 50 with more than 15 years of employment.

    I worked at Maritz full-time

    Pros

    It has a ton of potential to be excellent again.

    Cons

    Management is really poor now. They seem to not care about employees, only bottom line. Very unorganized. Employees are unhappy and so are low level management and it really shows.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better upper management that want to lead and not just boss. Get rid of low level management that don't really know how to manage or organize work load.
