    I worked at Merkle full-time (more than 3 years)


    Great "local" culture in the Marlboro office. Excellent team work. Paid well and decent benefits. Great balance of work/play.


    Corporate culture was very much like a fraternity. The founders were all "buddies" and there was truly an inner circle. Tough to advance if you didn't try to fit into that culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify your culture at the top. Be open to new/different ideas and ways to get things done.

    Positive Outlook
