    Positive Outlook

    I worked at MediaCom full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Large company with a lot of opportunities to work and collaborate with different clients and departments

    Cons

    While it’s an advantage to be a part of GroupM, employment decisions (hiring, promotions, raises) can be slower to come by. However, there’s not necessarily a “set” period for promotions. They come as needed!

    Advice to Management

    Engage employees and leverage their input to keep making the company great! Have c-suite interact with junior employees as they are often times out of touch!

    Advice to Management

    Fire HR and get some Management training in there. You can claim to be progressive but you need to put that into practice.

    I have been working at MediaCom full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice vacation time and perks. Good environment to learn.

    Cons

    Slow growth and a very poor promotion system regardless of skill set and knowledge. You aren’t rewarded for going above and beyond your role and there is no compensation for hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Bonuses (not even just monetary) would keep employees motivated to work hard.

    Good pay is about the only benefit.

    Cons

    Harassed at work constanconstant fly. Hr let's them get away with it and doesnt take you seriously even when you have multiple proofs to support your claim. They twist every word u say into something completely different entirely. If you work in the telemarketing dept be prepared to defend EVERYTHING you do even though your doing your job. Also, if you ever take fmla they use that time against you and add it to your performance...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees have to say when there is a problem. Stop twisting their words around. Stop being manipulative and hateful to certain employees and favoring other reps to your will.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at MediaCom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to grow, dynamic industry, client facing experience, great location, freebies, casual attire, good benefits (PTO, 401k, medical, etc), OT pay (depending on your role)

    Cons

    High turnover, limited resources (people), political, high-stress, long hours

    Advice to Management

    Some individuals are stretched thin which most likely is contributing to the high turnover. Efficiency cannot be reached on all accounts if a senior planner has 5+ accounts. Consider a learning center as well for new employees who are usually individuals fresh out of college.
