    Pros

    Great events and access

    Cons

    No structure, top heavy (considerably based on pay scale)

    Advice to Management

    It runs like a franchise and feels like you don't care that you have some of the best talent. Compensate them!

    Pros

    Able to attend cool events in the city

    Cons

    They don't really care about you. The whole internship is basically you sitting at a desk tweeting. They do not teach you anything. The office is always dark and no one really talks to you.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to use your interns for actual work.

    Pros

    Get to meet a lot of business owners and build meaningful relationships with them.

    Cons

    Everything else. Management on a local and corporate level are terrible. Mistreatment of thei employees leads to such a high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees that work hard. Also the pay structure for your account executives is really unfair and wrong.

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible hours
    Sometimes get invited to events that have free booze
    Office is close to public transit

    Cons

    Everything about the company itself:
    Bad benefits
    Low pay
    No performance reviews
    No communication with management
    Low morale
    Crazy high turnover
    Little office culture
    Insufferable clients

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees. Every talented person I knew at ML is now gone because of the lack of management. The company is not long for this world if it keeps up. Glad to have jumped ship when I did.

    Pros

    Loved the girls/guys on our sales team- none would stay too long though...

    Cons

    Horrible leadership and management. And the corporate office is a joke. Red flag should've been when HR says to make sure your boss is in a good mood before you ask her a question.....

    Advice to Management

    New leadership for less turnovers
