    Pros

    MarketBridge is a great place to work. The people are nice, smart, and ingenious. Everyone who is here now seems to really enjoy coming in every day and doing real, impactful work for our clients. The leadership team care a lot about the staff. Everyone, from the VPs to the Analysts, do real work. The company has a renewed strategic focus on three core products: Insights (DigitalPulse); Decisions (Analytics); and Content...

    Cons

    Several years ago, the strategy shifted hard towards SaaS software and away from the core job of delighting clients, which in retrospect was a mistake. However, to give the company credit, the strategy has been refocused back towards what MB has always done really well—delighting clients with breakthrough insights, cutting-edge analytics, and detailed last mile content—and that era is beginning to be a distant memory.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees. Stay laser-focused on the current strategy, and execute. Keep hiring great talent and promoting from within to build the next generation of leaders.

    I worked at MarketBridge full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Smart people. Generous salaries. Relaxed work environment. Tons of flexibility to work remotely or from home. Company makes a genuine effort to put on fun events and keep office morale high. Diverse staff. Many employees have been there for many years and are more like family.

    Cons

    Company is going through a ton of change - a bit of an identity crisis. Lots of layoffs. Many employees are jumping ship. CEO is very open about his love for President Trump (...take that however you’d like). I’m sure they can recover but now is not a great time to come aboard.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what sort of company you’d like to be so that employees can get excited about their work again and feel a sense of job security.

      "role creep" where you are wearing many hats; you may be called on to learn new tasks or to help out when short-handed

      I worked at MarketBridge full-time

      Pros

      - summer hours - fun work events

      Cons

      - long hours with little notice - not much direction from "higher up" staff - not much reward in work

      Advice to Management

      fit employees better to their position. Help out, and realize people have a life outside of work

    • A lot of responsibility quickly, which is nice but you can be overworked if you allow yourself to be.

      I have been working at MarketBridge full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      A lot of responsibility as soon as you start and they recognize when you put in the hard work. Promote quickly and pay increases rapidly.

      Cons

      Leadership is unsure of who the company is so they have a melting pot of different projects going on at once.

      Advice to Management

      Decide what type of consulting firm you want to be.

    • Great opportunity for growth (for the firm and for its employees)

      Advice to Management

      Focus, focus, focus

        Pros

        Former clients include some fortune 1000s, services team came from good schools, analytics team full of smart individuals, former service team SVPs were excellent leaders.

        Cons

        Look into the company's financial history, ask for they're current client list ( i.e. Actual existing contracts), they're history of layoffs, current budget allocation, and employee turnover rate before considering working with or for them.

        Advice to Management

        Clean house of senior leadership and stick with consulting service line
