    I worked at Media and Marketing Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was an easy commute. Gave me a raise if I said I was leaving.

    Cons

    Management would set up fake interviews to gather information. Public scenes of yelling and intimidation in hopes to get projects done.

    Advice to Management

    Do something productive, not look like your productive.

    Pros

    the people you meet here are great. created some of my closest friends here.

    Cons

    work gets redundant, you burn and churn, no quality to work just quantity, you are not praised if you do a good job but only if you're in trouble is when you get noticed. snarky comments often float around. no point in the anniversary party, no one gets a real promotion... just a title but no bonus or salary bump.

    Advice to Management

    you're losing good talent because you're too cheap to keep them and praise them.

    I worked at Media and Marketing Group full-time

    Pros

    Sink or swim. You will learn print programs very fast as the turn around time and volume is insane. Good for breaking into the ad industry if you have no experience but get out in a year or two as there's no advancement. People will try to help you out but they are mostly as overworked as you are. There is a lot of gallows humor, commiseration and sympathy from your fellow coworkers.

    Cons

    M&M is the invisible sister company of The Star Group. More like a sub company that props up the balance sheet of Star so they can give the illusion of a creative agency. Management pays themselves generously to front to the clients they're in the high end ad game. They're not. You will never get a significant raise. Hours are touted as 9-530 but expect to routinely work past 9pm and then made to feel inadequate at your job because you can't do the work that requires a team of 8 with 2-3 people. Pervasive feeling of dread and anxiety for anyone who is not upper management- the only people not on the chopping block. They don't rehire when people quit except in dire circumstances since they don't want to pay new employees. Promotions happen in bulk once a year and most of the time your work load and responsibility is higher than your title with no compensation or recognition. You get promoted basically only when you do your job and start doing your supervisor's too since they just quit over the hours and low pay. You only get a raise if promoted and it's less than a cost of living adjustment and will only barely cover the rising cost of healthcare that goes up every year and offers less benefit coverage each time. Reviews don't happen because when and if they did people would expect a raise or promotion. Completely client driven. 90% casinos in a dying industry. More casinos in every part of the country with no unique offerings means a turndown in client revenue because of a diluted gambling base that the clients blame on the agency. The work is not creative it's formulaic. Routinely cater to extremely abusive clients. No transparency on the state of the company - bulk layoffs happen without warning and then it's circle the wagons time for upper management who tries to pretend everything is fine. Certain management actually likes the fear culture because they believe that if you fear for your job constantly you're motivated to stay late so you're not next. Digital capabilities are a joke. This is a churn and burn print sweatshop for casino promotions. Instead of fixing what's broken management sinks money into creating new ventures for troubled family members of the owners that drain resources and give no return.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about people who are killing themselves to try to keep the company afloat. Pay more than you can earn working at a convenience store. Diversify your client base, its been on a downturn for 5 years. Stop patting Star people on the back for doing a fraction of the work M&M people do. Create an actual path for advancement and give yearly reviews.
