    Pros

    - The people - this agency has the brightest and nicest employees. Everyone with whom I work are really collaborative and inclusive.
    - Great culture - this agency goes above and beyond to ensure Moxie is a fun place to work
    - Training programs for every level employee
    - Benefits are off the chain - especially the vacation policy and the health insurance

    - DOGS!

    Cons

    We stay really busy, but I still have a work/life balance. At least I'm challenged everyday and feel like I'm always learning something new

    Pros

    Competitive pay
    Amazing PTO/holiday schedule (36 days!)
    Great benefits and office perks (like Coke freestyle machine, plus typical agency stuff)
    Fast interview process
    Got to ask a ton of questions
    All of my interviewers were prepared

    Cons

    Didn't get an office tour - should've asked
    There was a hiccup with one of my interviewers who missed the interview (or the change wasn't communicated)

    Advice to Management

    A lot of the negative reviews on here seem to revolve around one client. See what you can do to remedy the low score by incentivizing/asking employees in other business units to leave reviews.

    I worked at Moxie as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Such a fun environment to work in with real, hands-on, agency experience. The pay is great and interns are typically offered a position at the end of their term.

    Cons

    When you apply, you mark the areas you're interested in but they end up placing you in whatever department they think you fit best. Luckily, I liked where I ended up.

    Large agency offers great perks (free lunch fridays, lots of PTO, great benefits) and resources (smart people, new technology and tools)

    I have been working at Moxie full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Super smart people and in incredible client roster that is growing more and more diversified.
    Company benefits are better than anywhere I’ve ever worked, by a long shot.
    Outstanding advancement opportunity if you work hard and place value on the relationships formed there.
    Having worked at many agencies and on the client-side, I can honestly say I’ve never been happier. At Moxie, I’ve been afforded learning opportunities regularly, I have an open door to all managers when I need it (up the highest level), I have autonomy to get my job done and yet I still have the flexibility to take care of my family. What more can you ask for?

    Cons

    It’s an extremely fast-paced environment (which I enjoy) but isn’t for everyone. If you can’t keep up, this isn’t the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue working on transparency at all levels – great progress in the past year but always room for improvement. Also, be sure to recognize and listen to the middle layer (directors and such). These folks are on the ground day after day, working with both entry-level people and upper managers. They have very valuable input!

    I worked at Moxie full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at Moxie. I took advantage of all the connections I made and still do business with several colleagues I met while there. The environment can be a bit clique-ish, but it's easy to avoid. First, at the lunch and learn, don't sit next to the manager that says so and so got wasted last night and is wearing the same pants from yesterday. Or the Director that's having a temper tantrum because a partner didn't get him tickets to Music Midtown. Unfortunately, it's a keep your head down and your nose clean environment. But you will learn everything about digital marketing and be a rock star when you take your talent elsewhere.

    Cons

    In 2012, there were no cons to being gainfully employed in a recession.

    Advice to Management

    Be more appreciative of the talent. There are tons of people who are a lot smarter than you all.

    I have been working at Moxie (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture at Moxie is it's greatest asset. From HR to the Exec Committee, Moxie leadership makes a point to make the employees feel they are valued. I've never worked at a company where HR is so involved and proactive. It's refreshing. Work/Life balance is very important. Moxie is SO much more than an advertising agency-- it's technology, marketing, social, the future! The employees are very talented and lead by mangers who encourage growth and innovation. Employees are constantly recognized for their great work. It's a magical place to work with all of the growth and leadership and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for our amazing company!

    Great events, communication, CLIENTS, technology and corporate benefits.

    Cons

    Moxie used to have a lukewarm reputation; however, that has really turned around. While the agency offers great educational opportunities and seminars, sometimes they are just so-so. More often than not, the education is great and we are really lucky to have a company who invests in the employees. I think depth in the topics could strengthen learnings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the momentum and make sure to listen to the mid-level employees for feedback.
