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

    Pros

    ME has some of brightest people on their team. The company is smart, tech savvy, always evolving and open to change. I worked at ME for over 11 years. The company made me the person I am today both professionally and personally. The possibilities for growth are endless as long as you are willing to prove yourself. They believe in their employees. The CEO built this company from 1 employee to over 100. To say he is passionate about Marketing Evolution would be an understatement. Probably one of the most genuine, honest, compassionate executives I have ever worked with. Everyone works as a team to deliver quality work to clients, regardless of titles. The team works hard but you couldn't ask for a better group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Quality is key, sometimes the hours are long. You have to push yourself to do your best everyday and sometimes that can be hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    High pay, decent benefits, flexible hours

    Cons

    Long hours, very disorganized. Priorities change like the weather. Zero job security.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on one thing and execute it. The day to day moving targets killed morale

    Pros

    If you want to be surrounded by other high performers this is the place for you. The company is constantly evolving forward if you can keep up your skill set will advance too.

    Cons

    Spreading best practices to all as the company scales and staffing to scale. If you need a lot of direction you wouldn't be happy here.

    Advice to Management

    Need to step up hiring game to make sure that only the high performers make it on to the team.

    I worked at Marketing Evolution full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Spent six years at Marketing Evolution. Cannot say enough positive things about the firm.

    Marketing Evolution has a very strong and unique culture that permeates every level of the company. Every team member is given the opportunity to truly own their work and when they prove they can handle one task, then they are given the opportunity to take on another. Employees are promoted based on their ability to take on the next challenge and not just on tenure or seniority.

    Employees are given the opportunity to move across different functions of the firm, either formally or informally, which makes it a great place to acquire a wide range of skills. I spent time performing client work, business development, and financial forecasting.

    Teams are collaborative and people genuinely enjoy working together. Employees are able to have flexible schedules, as long as they get their work done.

    The CEO is very hands on and cares deeply about the success of the firm and its clients. In my first week at the firm, I was working alongside him on a key account.

    Cons

    Marketing Evolution's culture is not for everyone. You must be comfortable in a fast-changing and sometimes ambiguous environment. The firm moves very quickly to stay ahead in the rapidly evolving marketing technology space. Expect your responsibilities to change as the marketing landscape evolves and the product evolves with it. Those periods of change are challenging.

    The firm can be a tough place to work if you don't feel comfortable pushing forward without detailed guidance. But if you enjoy being given that latitude, you will be a great fit.

    Hours can be long, particularly if there is a key client deliverable due, but that's true of any client facing company.

    Pros

    Exceptional co-workers who are extremely smart and collaborative; supportive culture; junior level employees have access to senior management; all opinions are valued; work is challenging and engaging on a daily basis; firm is committed to innovation that will push the industry forward.

    Cons

    Because of the focus on rapid innovation, employees are tasked with embracing ambiguity and defining new processes regularly. This is not a great fit for everyone.

    Pros

    Everyone was smart, very hard-working and always treated each other with respect and kindness
    The work culture was relaxed and goals-focused. What mattered was getting your work done well and not how long you clocked-in
    Work was interesting and varied, and you were given ownership of project(s) relatively quickly
    Great office location

    Cons

    Not all the offices had same opportunities or types of projects which sometimes limited your exposure to new initiatives or approaches

    Pros

    - high level of responsibility
    - growth opportunities
    - entry level employees have open access to executive leadership
    - values innovative thinking
    - offers performance based incentives

    Cons

    Small company culture requires managers to get their hands dirty and do work that might be delegated to lower levels at other companies.

    Overlapping deadlines can see some weeks become very long.

    Advice to Management

    Capacity planning to understand where lower level resources are spent. In general doing a good job of taking the company from small to mid-size.
