    I have been working at Merkle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People - Great, fun, smart people.
    Pace of Change - Merkle is growing ridiculously quickly which might not be right for some people but for those who are willing to get stuck in, be positive and work collaboratively to bring about positive change, Merkle is the place to be.
    Extras - we get free breakfasts and fruit each day and alcohol on Fridays, there's yoga/Pilates once a week paid for by the company, Socials every month. There's just tons going on and to get involved in.
    Plus, I have a pretty good work life balance, most days I see reception on the way out the office before 6pm and I start at 9am.

    Cons

    Pace of Change - I know I put this in my Pros but the pace of change here isn't for everyone. There are people working on bringing numerous acquisitions, and therefore processes, systems and ways of working, together but this is still in a state of flux which can be a challenge to navigate when all you want to do is get on with the job at hand. That said, we're building an awesome plane whilst we're flying it but understandably some people don't like turbulence!

    Lack of clear direction from leadership, the leadership could do more to bring to life the company strategy and help us to understand the role we all play in it.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more to your employees.
    Set clear expectations for all employees from the top-down.
