    I have been working at Match Marketing Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My counterparts, some great clients good people in creative

    Cons

    Upper management horribly over promised to the client. So much so that the client took the business to a different agency. There has been way too much turnover in upper management to make me feel secure. My interview process was a joke which should have been a huge red flag for me Overall, I get the feeling the entire agency is hanging on by a thread.

  3. "Account Coordinator"

    2.0
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Match Marketing Group full-time

    Pros

    Solid few people who really care about everyone's wellbeing.

    Cons

    Worked at this company for years and they showed no care when this incident happened. Upper management is messy. They act like they care and they'll tell you what you think you want to hear for formal purposes like they 'did their job' but they genuinely don't care. I was harmed at work and there was no zero tolerance policy for colleagues stepping over the line. You should never feel uncomfortable to go to work, yet alone let management know you're coming to work crying every single day and they could care less about your mental well being. Another big con is the high turn over rate

    I worked at Match Marketing Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People I worked with were all great and my direct supervisor was a great woman.

    Cons

    Didn't feel very taken care of by upper management. They didn't seem to really sympathize and understand our needs. There were a few times that we were not given all the materials needed to fill the walls, which continued to set us back.

    I have been working at Match Marketing Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Extra vacation day on long weekends Great benefits RRSP contributions Flexible work hours if requested

    Cons

    This place has gone downhill in a wheel barrel. What started as a company that prides themselves on integrity and trust has become a company of lies, deceit and games. They are loosing clients like crazy, and keep hiring high priced, useless “Sr leadership” staff and cutting the “little guys” jobs. I have yet to see a single one of these upper management jokes bring in any new business, or do anything of any importance other than take our money and our bonuses. Oh did I mention when you sign your contract they tell you that you are eligible for a bonus but haven’t actually given one out in years. I don’t know what they’re doing, but clearly something isn’t working and life/the business was so much better when CD was in charge.

    Pros

    - Creative problem solving is an almost-daily requirement of the job. If you are looking to be challenged regularly, you will find this here. - Collaboration is essential. If you like working in a team-based environment, you will also find this here. - Clients are extremely varied by industry, and depending on your team, you can be exposed to a wide set of clients/consumer types/markets. - Office social culture is available to you if you choose to participate. Happy hours, boozy parties, and volunteer opportunities are regularly on the docket. - Travel is a requirement. If you like getting out of Boulder you'll have a lot of opportunity to travel for your client projects.

    Cons

    Too long/didn't read version: salaries are low, paid time off is generous but not guaranteed, work/life balance is nonexistent, pathways to growth are largely indecipherable, and ACs are by and large considered replaceable and unimportant to senior leadership. In detail: - Work/life balance: there is none. It's possible you will work 80 hr weeks from the office during busy times, and 100+ hour weeks when you are onsite at your events. Comp days are loosely offered after spending a weekend onsite for a client project, but the policy is unclear company-wide and is not expressly encouraged. - Compensation: given the large amount of hours worked, and the expectation to be regularly available after-hours, compensation does not match the responsibilities of an account coordinator. - Benefits: - While there is a once-a-week"flex time"/work from home policy, often times you'll get side-eyed for taking it, or even directly reprimanded. - While you get 21 PTO days per year on top of holidays as a part of your benefits package, there is "no guarantee" that you can take your PTO, even when scheduled far in advance. PTO is sold on the up-front as substitute for lower salaries, but can be yanked away from you at any time. - Lack of transparency for growth tracks: while there is an official evaluation system, there are no requirements for managers or supervisors to run check-ins with ACs to track progress against growth. The team account supervisor was in the backseat for my entire tenure and never once sat me down to talk about growth. There is no acknowledgement of your 1 year anniversary, nor any guarantee of salary increase, even to account for inflation. - Access to upper management/leadership (this was one of my greatest pain points). MatchMG in Boulder is a small organization. Despite this, there is a glaring lack of interaction between senior leadership and ACs. Not once in my tenure did the Managing Director of Accounts or Managing Partner take the time to get to know me, learn about my day-to-day work, or discuss growth. Senior leadership feels entirely inaccessible, which gives the impression that the ACs are unimportant, even replaceable. - Transparency of agency-wide decisions/policies is minimal. - Training is nonexistent, sink or swim. This is not an entry level position, albeit it pays like one.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were nice, flexible hours and work-from-home arrangements depending on your supervisor.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Bad leadership. No transparency whatsoever, employees often feel that they are being "screwed" by upper management.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, manage yourself environment, casual dress code, and generally good culture.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive for the market, and there is zero to no option for bonuses unless you have a "VP" in front of your title. Very poor management, no transparency even though upper management prides itself in being transparent. Parent company only knows how to acquire small businesses, but has no idea on how to run and maintain a successful company.

    - Easy job, repetitive work loads - Some colleagues are very nice

    Cons

    Upper management is lacking on most of everything. Extremely unorganized and never promises on their decisions. Changes direction very frequently, has reason for everything.
