    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There really are no positive aspects of working at this company. Maybe summer Fridays...but only if you actually leave on time.

    Cons

    - Suffering from PTSD
    - Dissecting and rewriting every email from people that do not speak English as a first language
    - Belittling and berating employees in front of others
    - Negative comments on physical appearance
    - Jungle themed office
    - Outdated office and equipment (still using filing cabinets and index cards!)
    - Being trained by interns
    - No flexibility in process or procedure

    Advice to Management

    Be nice to your employees, do not harass them and belittle them in front of the others and stop making everyone dress up to sit at a desk all day!

    "Worst Experience Ever"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    If you are looking to be ridiculed, used a scapegoat for their terrible errors, and enjoy bring talked down to every day, this is the place for you

    Cons

    The two jokers running the place are an embarrassing disgrace in front of clients. You just want to cringe and usually have to apologize for their behavior at the end of the meeting. Every email you send is scrutinized and rewritten in the most horrible way. I did not experience this much, but the other staff were belittled daily and forced to change their writing style

    Advice to Management

    Retire

    I worked at Marketing Challenges International (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office location in Manhattan, enjoyable summer hours

    Cons

    Besides the two pros listed above, working at mcintl can turn into a real nightmare. The management there is extremely poor and often makes employees cry. They don't trust you and make you feel stupid. Don't work there!

    Advice to Management

    "Business is business" but show a little bit of humanity to your employees.

    Pros

    Exposure to a variety of industries, clients and working habits; potential to travel domestically and abroad; able to work directly with clients and senior management

    Cons

    Corporate culture is unlike most places and it takes awhile to get adjusted. There is an extremely high turnover rate, which is something to be cautious about when considering employment with the company.
