    Marketing Evolution is in a fast growing and exciting market sector. This is a high growth business with a great portfolio of big brand clients. Extremely smart and dedicated employees . Strong vision and corporate direction.

    Cons

    ME is not for everyone...very fast paced, solving complicated problems and typical growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and continue to invest in talent.

    Pros

    Some of the one star reviews I feel like are overly harsh. This is not a one star company, but it's not perfect either.

    - Colleagues are smart, driven, and generally are fun to hang out with
    - Incredibly flexible work from home policy
    - Office/team building events are genuinely fun
    - The data that we are able to analyze & our methodology are truly top tier
    - Benefits structure is fantastic compared to other companies of this size
    - Casual work environment - aside from the C-suite, there isn't a real sense of hierarchy within the organization
    - Low performers are quickly shuffled out of the company
    - High performers will be retained as much as possible. If you're doing well but want a different career path than the one you're on, and can find or create a better role that suits you, or if a situation in your life has changed, they'll accommodate you in order to keep you in the company
    - Performance reviews really are merit based - tenure alone won't give you a promotion

    Cons

    - As a client services company, long hours can be a necessary evil and should be expected occasionally. However, it has gotten to the point where you can be judged negatively for not working nights and/or weekends
    - Administrative side of the company has become understaffed after expansion in other departments
    - Development teams need to stick to their schedules on releasing updates/improvements to our product and be held accountable if they don't deliver on time
    - That said, management has recognized all of these issues and have committed to a plan to make changes to how we do things. It's a bit of a wait and see but I am optimistic

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize issues that employees are facing, and remain committed to implementing solutions

    Focus on getting our current offering to be nearly polished before jumping to what's next

    Improve hiring and training to bring in more hits than misses, and better set people up for success

    "Honestly Terrible"

    Pros

    Small company environment, most people are nice and encouraging.

    Cons

    -Very repetitive work
    -Management is disorganized and doesn't follow through
    -Not engaging what-so-ever
    -Training process is horrendous
    -Coworkers seem nice, but talk bad behind your back.. thought we were done with high school!

    Advice to Management

    Agree with previous advice: "Stop congratulating yourself for small accomplishments and make some real changes. You're not such a start-up anymore and you need to be willing to put in the money to grow."
    Also, be honest in interviews considering my job was no where near what was described.

    Pros

    Highly approachable and helpful C-Suite.
    Co-workers who are always willing to lend a hand.
    Very competitive pay.
    Excellent communication across the company.
    Transparent review process.

    Cons

    Occasional long or inopportune hours mostly due to offices in different time zones.
    Fast pace environment which can be difficult for some people to adjust to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, the changes that I've seen in the organization and overall direction of the company in the last year have been astounding!

    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

    Friendly and outgoing co-workers
    Process improvement and ideas are welcome
    Everyone in the company rolls up their sleeves and pitches in during crunch time
    Thinking outside the box
    Plenty of advancement and opportunity to make a difference
    Plenty of company events and closeness, even though offices are spread out
    Benefits are better than some larger companies

    Cons

    If you are not able to handle change, fast pace, and constructive criticism this is probably not the place for you.

    I worked at Marketing Evolution full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, work with interesting clients, opportunity to work in a bootstrapped startup environment...they pay well...until you think about how many hours you're actually working.

    Cons

    The product doesn't work the way they claim it does. Disorganized. Upper management has no idea how to manage down, and no idea what is going on. They don't care about employees, only about the bottom line and getting more clients to buy into what they're selling. NO work/life balance, NONE. 80 hour work weeks (or you are talked about behind your back to the entire company if you don't agree to work around the clock or on weekends).

    Advice to Management

    Manage people better, maybe start with building a true HR department. Manage clients and provide them with accurate data. Hire better software developers & data engineers. Hire a UX/UI Architect.
