    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.

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

    Pros

    The co-workers at Maritz Motivation are the only positive anymore.

    Cons

    New leadership at Maritz Motivation is more interested in doing things in a vacuum without learning from the people who have been there for decades. People are leaving in droves for fear of where the company is heading. Competitors are bypassing Maritz, and leadership doesn't seem to notice. Benefits are also not so great for a company that has been around a long time and has a lot of employees. The company also does not practice what it preaches for employee recognition, and everyone is on pins and needles to find out what area will be cut next.

    Advice to Management

    Gain more industry knowledge and find out what customers really want. Your people are experienced and know what can work, but you don't seem interested in learning from them.

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

    Pros

    I can’t say the really were any at first it was cool because the morale is high and then like a roller coaster it shot right down

    Cons

    The Management is a joke they don’t value their employees they don’t listen to employees opinions I could go on for days about how bad that place was there is a reason why I walked out of there after only working one hour of my shift.

    Advice to Management

    Probably get a manager that didn’t work at UPS and someone that didn’t work in the call center that has no clue how to run a warehouse.

    Invest more, expand the territory and they will benefit from the new growth.

    "What do they want to be in the next decade?"

    I worked at Maritz full-time

    Pros

    A good culture where the day to day people are great to work with in achieving results

    Cons

    Long considered the industry leader, they perhaps have lost razor focus in answering the question of "why Maritz" in gaining/maintaining client partners based on amenities other than their name brand. This has caused multiple makeovers over the years with changes throughout and up through the executive players. This has continually lead to re-organization and the constant fear of contracting their workforce. This can be a morale crusher for a company that prides itself on "culture."

    Advice to Management

    While you now continue to adapt to change in the industry that you helped create, with new and existing competition having caught and surpassed you in some areas, taking a page from the Loyalty playbook and applying to your own people could be more of a priority.
