SENIOR SYSTEMS ADMINISTRATOR (Current Employee) – Columbia, MD – May 21, 2018
Merkle is a very fast-paced and culturally diverse global organization. Technology solutions are the driver of revenue here, so we are always at the cutting edge for our solutions. That is as much it's greatest strength as it is it's greatest weakness. There is always something to do, always something to learn, but it comes at the cost of your personal time and gray hairs as the constant changing environment creates a large lack of procedure. Management and team are typically very flexible but also tend to be lax.
SEM Analyst, Merkle (Former Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – April 27, 2018
I found Merkle to be a good place to start my career. They provided strong training for the job. I just didn't enjoy the agency concept with multiple clients and wanted to advance my career with a focus on one company doing something that matters to me.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – April 7, 2018
I was an account manager in SLC during the Merkle acquisition of Axis 41. Merkle bought Axis for AEM and that is it. The marketing team gets next to nothing done and lies about everything. When they are not losing accounts they are busy infighting and playing favorites.
The management is inept and passive aggressive. Trust me it is not a stable job unless you are a programmer or designer.
My area your work hour schedule could be worked with.
Data Entry (Current Employee) – Hagerstown, MD – April 6, 2018
It is a very fast paced environment, errors are not to be made which makes it very stressful. However it is a laid back environment. I feel if your not a favorite then they always pick you to go to another department to do their work.
2 free 15 minute breaks
No smoking on property. You can’t leave the property on your breaks so you can only smoke on lunch.
Director (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – March 26, 2018
I really enjoyed my time there. The company treats its employees like adults, the work was interesting, my coworkers were smart and generally had the client's best interest in mind, the benefits and compensation were at or above industry level, most executives were extremely competent, and the company was very open about its performance and plans. On the downside, the quality of mid-level management varied wildly, and if you're looking for lots of coaching/training you may want to look elsewhere.
coworkers, variability of projects, transparency, compensation
Leadership was more like a fraternity than talented people building a business. Unicorn account objectives magically bestowed upon producers. A lot of individually talented people, however little to no accountability and spread way too thin. A sales machine that does lots of overpromising and under delivering.
Manger (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – March 16, 2018
This company has very little culture with it. You sit among peers but the environment says to send emails and chats vs getting up and talking to someone. If you want to hang out after work, you need to already be friends otherwise it will not happen. Company events? Only if you count meetings as company events. Raises? Only if you count a raise as more work, with no additional pay. Security of position? None unless you throw other people under the bus. In my time there I saw one third to half of members of the different teams leave for various reason. The turn over rate is very high.
Checks (Former Employee) – Hagerstown, MD – February 25, 2018
Terrible job and the upper management is terrible why do you think you have such a big turn over I'm def writing to main office bad business no customer delight or and treat employees terrible..I ave listened to 2 employees complain about the same situations over and over again terrible employee communication By all mean call me
Data entry (Former Employee) – Maryland – February 25, 2018
First time ever working for a company like Merkle. They gave me a chance even though I had no experience. I was pregnant during the duration that I worked here so I would be sitting down. Paid $12 an hour to type in check amounts, check numbers and even be able to listen to my iPod while working? Yes, please :).
Media Analyst (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 21, 2018
Your job description doesn't highlight your day to day duties. Merkle Minneapolis hired too many people with too little experience, which made the job experience less than pleasant for everyone involved. They throw a ton of information for you up front, then leave you to drown when a task is assigned. The proper training is not there and unless you never want to know what you're doing, I do not recommend working here.
Work/Life balance, starting pay, unlimited PTO
No overtime pay, lack of training, minimal room for advancement
Quality Control Clerk (Former Employee) – Hagerstown, MD – January 4, 2018
