    I have been working at Match Marketing Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    really great team of people who are all very talented and who work hard. New clients and opportunities (new spirits clients, new biz briefs, social, event marketing) that are providing interesting work. Everyone, even the most senior people pitch in everyday and understand the work needed instead of just managing.

    Cons

    lots of work, but not enough people to do it. training isn't good, your on your own to learn new things. agency announced no automatic cost of living increases which isn't good - performance raises are still happening. communications are getting better.

    Advice to Management

    reward good people for good work and do it faster. keep communications happening. listen to the people that say they need help to keep doing good work - they know what they're talking about!

    The company keeps buying other smaller agencies and does a VERY poor job of integrating together. Little communication across offices. Little support from leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying companies and focusing on ensuring what you have works.

    I have been working at Match Marketing Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun coworkers, great creative output, enjoyable happy hours at the office bar, foosball table & close to Metro-North train station (with free shuttle)

    Cons

    Senior management is always behind closed doors and offers little to no transparency to regular employees. Senior management also talks a great game about career growth, but offers little to back it up. I have known several others who left because the firm offered no potential advancement. There are no bonuses so there is no incentive to work hard. You can kill yourself or do a mediocre job and the end result is the same:...

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize your employees by promoting internally and not hiring externally for open positions. You can't run a successful long-term agency when employees have to leave to further their career.

    Pros

    Great client base, lots of experience opportunities, get to work with amazing, like-minded people.

    Cons

    Management is focused on money and not employees, agency output has been going down over the past three years due to stress on employees, limiting creativity due to resource constraints.

    Advice to Management

    Begin to adapt a 2018 agency structure. Learn from other leaders in the industry and focus on employees first and foremost. When employees are passionate and driven, everything else comes organically.
