    Pros

    Output some good work. The company focuses on the client's problem at hand. As for employees, they are really work on work/life balance.

    There is a lack of leadership and direction with minimal support.

    I worked at Moroch for more than a year

    Pros

    Set structure and flow of operations. Trusted to manage your own projects. Great exposure right off the bat. If this is your first job, your professional growth will develop tremendously. Some pretty decent company meals. Summer Fridays. Free gym membership. This has now transitioned to discounts at Planet Fitness I believe. Got to travel to Texas and take part of a fancy all company event.

    Cons

    No Hr in the satellite offices. Your growth is at the mercy of the chemistry you have with your team. High micromanagement, limited training, and overworked younger staffed employees. Was stuck with another account person above me and 3 other account directors running ship. The environment was TOXIC. Inappropriate conduct went on frequently. If you are an account coordinator and your office is small (like 6 people), consider...

    Advice to Management

    I can't speak for all satellite offices, but if your team is clearly understaffed, stop being cheap and hire more employees. Stop poorly training kids fresh out of school and expecting them to be rock-stars at their job (pay them too for how hard they are actually working - don't disguise an AE role for an Account Coordinator roll). Find a way to grow the satellite teams to have a full team with creative, PM, production...

    Pros

    Good location; Great people work there.

    Cons

    Agency used to be very stable. Though the agency has gotten some great new business wins, the agency hasn't recovered from the massive restructuring of McD Media spending, which wasn't agencies fault. Its obvious agency is still trying to find its foots.

    Advice to Management

    Overcommunicate.

    Pros

    Good life/work balance, okay benefits, fun atmosphere, provides basic tool to get your foot in the door (if you feel you won't advance, run when you can), No micromanaging which was a plus for me

    Cons

    Pay and raises could've been better, no real room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to rising stars that you have, HR should treat employees better which was my biggest gripe when I left

    Pros

    - Pay is pretty good. It's about on par with what you'd expect. - Good view of downtown. - Free pop.

    Cons

    - Agency feels a lot like a call center. It's very quiet. Everyone keeps their head down. The idea of #AgencyLife does not exist here. If it wasn't for the traditional advertising agency decor, you'd think you had walked into a call center. - Every employee seems to be competing with each other to prove they worked the hardest or the latest. When you try to leave at quitting, no one stops you, but they give you dirty...

    Advice to Management

    - Help employees feel more engaged. Take an interest in them. Make them feel invested in. - Add a little fun in the workplace. The walls may be painted a fun color, but everyone's attitude is beige. - 1:1s would be great. Get an idea of how the employees are feeling and what they want to do. My manager has not checked in with me in over a year. - Please keep an eye on employee mental health. I know of one such...

    -Fun culture -Great office location -Friendly staff

    Cons

    -Leadership is eager to push veterans/long-standing employees out the door in favor for young staff who will work long hours for little pay. -Lack of direction from management. -This company, despite its outward appearance, doesn't give a hoot about you. They have no problem squeezing you for everything you're worth and throwing you away once they've gotten what they wanted. -If you work here, don't do it long-term....

    Advice to Management

    Yes, my title is a bit melodramatic, but I've seen it happen to more than one employee during my association with this company. You're behind the times and are struggling to keep up with other better digital agencies. Maybe if you didn't rely on just one major client (McDonald's), you wouldn't be in the position you are now. 10 years ago, I would have recommended anyone to work for this company. Now I'm telling them...

    I worked at Moroch full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Work life wasn't bad. You certainly had to work hard, long hours at times, but there were plenty of times when not a lot was going on. I got the impression that was less because of a family-oriented culture and instead was the result of a lack of paying clients. Upper management was obsessed with internal projects and a lot of time was spent spinning wheels on things that would never see the light of day or make money....

    Cons

    It's a very antiquated agency and more of a media shop than an agency. Account team staff accounts for well over 70% of employees in my estimation. The biggest issue was the hyper-focus on process. As a place that was built around 1 client (McD's) they figured out what worked for that one client and tried to force every other client into working in that mold.

    Advice to Management

    This isn't helpful advice, but you need to win clients with national recognition and sell more than spreadsheets and powerpoint presentations. You need to trust people more than process,

    I worked at Moroch full-time

    Pros

    Moroch has a great culture overall. The (former) CEO and Executive staff was amazing and truly cared about their people, the clients, and the work they were doing. It used to be a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Focusing business around a few key clients led to a HUGE downfall and I don't see them ever really coming back from it. The decisions they've been making ever since have been extremely reactionary and don't seem well thought out. Support staff is nearly non-existent now, which has led to a major decrease in productivity. Everyone is stressed and workloads have become insane. It's been layoff after layoff the last few...

    I worked at Moroch full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The culture, at least in creed, is really fantastic. Top management really tries to stress that they care about the personal and original growth of employees. On the large scale, they care about your wellness and try to foster a work environment conducive to that. Legit experience in the advertising field. This is the real deal.

    Cons

    While the overarching moral and morals of the company are great, the morale and morals of your team can vary greatly, depending on how the personalities of your team play out. There can definitely be a feeling of its you or me when it comes down to issues facing the team which can strain working relationships and trust over time so prepare yourself. The laid back culture can translate into some late nights if other members...

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture from the top coming down into middle and low level management, and ensure best practices are followed by all. Times haves gotten right, but you've got a great foundation.
