It's challenging condensing all the ways Marco has empowered me in the year and a half I have been here. I get to come to work every day and work for a company who stands by their community and employees. I get to work with amazing people that inspire a person to want to give their all every single day. I am challenged every single day at Marco and I have been given so many opportunities to work on developments that positively affect the way we do things at Marco in my department. Marco allows me to positively effect my community by allowing me to teach Junior Achievement during the school year, which I love! The list could go on! #mpowering
National and Dealer Account Coordinator
Each day that I come to work for Marco is a delight. I mean that honestly. I came from a company that was only worried about numbers and the bottom line. Days were long and very stressful, and at night I would come home drained. That is not the case with Marco. Each day I come to work I'm greeted with a smile by my fellow employees and everyone seems to always be in a great mood. I've only been with Marco for a little over a year, but I can't see myself anywhere else.
Being in this industry since 1985 has had its ups and downs. When Marco acquired my previous employer, it was a breath of fresh air. We were treated like responsible adults right out of the gate. I remember being encouraged to be responsible and do our job, which I liked to hear. I was able to keep my position, along with a few more duties, which I don't mind because I love to be busy. Now I enjoy coming into work.
Marco empowers me by allowing my input in our processes. It's very rewarding to be able to take an idea for improvement and see it through to completion. At Marco, we're continuously improving and we're never bored.

Marco is not only an employer to me. I am provided the unique balance of personal career growth, as well as the opportunity to make a difference in our community. The corporate culture provides an environment which is honest, caring and family-friendly. It is rewarding being surrounded by individuals who share the same career goals and ethics. And being an employee owner is empowering.
Client Support Coordinator
Marco empowers me to live my best life. Truly. We are all about running a successful company and growing our business, but we also care very much about our people and the communities we serve. Marco empowers me to be a mom, wife, daughter, sister and friend because it promotes flexibility and work-life balance. Happy people make for happy employees. Marco values its people and their performance, and makes sure that when life happens, we can do that too.
I am one of the happiest employees ever! Before coming to Marco I worked for a competitor that had a backwards approach to doing things and did not supply the tools needed to better service customers. Imagine having to leave a customer’s site to return to the office to look up parts in a service manual, then order them. I am happy that we at Marco take the time to recognize what can be changed and how we can improve processes to make our jobs better. I often think back and wonder why I didn’t take the first opportunity to join such an awesome place to work. I'm just so thankful that Dale Evans did call twice.

Production Print Service Technician
Marco has m:powered me to grow personally and professionally. I enjoy waking up everyday and coming into work because of our culture. Time flies when you're having fun.
On the first day of new hire orientation, the CEO, Jeff Gau, came into the room and spoke to all of the new hires. He spoke to us about the Marco culture and how we, the new employees, will make a difference in the company and with Marco’s customers.
Jeff Gau was handing out the “Marco Kool-Aid” and I liked it! At that moment I knew this was a place I wanted to come to every morning. Jeff Gau inspired me to hand out the “Marco Kool-Aid”, to assist our customers and to show them why Marco is a great place to work and to work with.

I look forward to coming to work each and every day at Marco, and truly feel a part of the Marco family. I am empowered by the wonderful people I work with, and the responsibility and respect I was given from the moment I arrived. Marco has opened my eyes to endless opportunities to grow my career. Thank you!
Marco’s growth is impressive, and I am proud to be a part of that growth. Developing a new territory can take several years, and with Marco I feel that path is reduced significantly. I am m:powered to hit my goals sooner than expected, and more effectively.
Marco empowers me to be a good person. The volunteerism and support for the communities in which they operate inspires me to get involved and give back. The positive culture that Marco promotes to its employees makes Marco a great place to come to work every day, and you can see it in the smiling faces at Marco.
Inside Sales Lead
I find Marco m:powering as it truly does respect and see the value in a true work-life balance. The ability to have this balance is reflected in the attitudes of the employees I encounter on a daily basis. It is great to work for a company that recruits great people to work with.
IT Project Coordinator
Marco is a wonderful company. It is so easy to work for a company that makes customer and employee satisfaction a number one priority. My six years at Marco have just flown by. Thanks Marco for being a great company and making working here the best place to work. Love the positive atmosphere.
Marco has empowered me to be myself; there is no conformist culture here! Whether I am presenting to a large group, to a small class, or just decorating my work area, I can always let my true colors come out and feel 100% comfortable.
I have worked at Marco for 5 years and have always been impressed with how well the company information is shared with employees. It makes me feel like part of a TEAM rather than just an employee. LOVE MY JOB!
Copier Production Print Technician
Marco empowers its employees in so many ways. I still remember visiting Marco for the first time. Jeff Gau gave us a tour of the St. Cloud facility. It stood out to me how Jeff knew everyone and greeted all employees by name. He even talked with them on a personal level. It was an example of the Marco culture and it starts with Jeff and our management team. Marco provides it's employees with the tools and resources to perform our jobs. We are a technology company and we prove it by always being on the cutting edge of technology. Marco is a ESOP company. It empowers all of the employees to be an owner. All 900 employees work as one Team!
Field Service Manager
Marco m:powers me to work hard and learn more every day. To me, Marco is my career, not just a job, and I look forward to coming into work to see my awesome co-workers and to see what I can achieve that day. I strive to go above and beyond what I think I’m capable and I know there are people here that support me every step of the way!
Britt Vander Eyk
Online Marketing Specialist
In 2005 it was time for a change in my IT career. Marco has provided me career & personal growth that I could have never imagined. While adopting children 2 different times from a foreign country, Marco afforded me the flexibility and freedom to allow my wife and I to complete our family. The career opportunities are so ever changing and Marco's ability to stay contemporary is certainly refreshing. In the ever changing world of technology, Marco is well suited to adapt for the future. Marco's motto of doing well and doing good within our communities that we server m:powers my family and I to participate in charities in our community. I am proud to say I am a Marco employee owner.

Marco empowers me with opportunities to expand my skills, personally and professionally. I’m always encouraged to try new things – I love that!
Marco’s dedication to its employees, communities and customers is what makes this company such a great place to work. I feel empowered every day by this group of passionate people who sincerely wants to help our customers and employees be successful. Not a day goes by when someone isn’t working on improving a process to help us all work smarter and provide better service. It is so fun to see how proud we all are to be part of the Marco family.

Vendor Relations Representative
Marco m:powers me to find my own path. We are given clear goals, and encouraged to work as a team towards those goals, but Marco trusts it's employees to get to that finish line in their own way. We all have strengths. We all have weaknesses. If there was only one accepted way to do things, we would be losing out on the unique traits that each of us brings to the table. This people-centric business approach m:powers me to be an individual, but be part of a greater whole.
The leadership team at Marco empowers me to be the best I can be in all aspects of my life. The high performance expectations at work, combined with an engaged culture and healthy work-life balance, push me to do all I can to make this company better. I come to work knowing I am valued as an employee and person. Marco also empowers me to give back to my community by supporting and encouraging volunteer opportunities.
Payroll Commissions Administrator
Marco has m:powered me to be a better parent, employee and community member! I have always worked 1 hour from home, therefore leaving before my kids get on the bus and a couple hours after they were off the bus, leaving not much time for after work/school/community activities. Working for Marco and the technology that they provide, has m:powered me to work from home! I can focus and concentrate, which allows me to churn out better product and assist to my fullest. With the technology Marco possess, I can keep in constant contact with my co-workers. When I need, there is always a home for me in the office as well…which is MUCH appreciated on long summer days.
SSG Business Analyst
Marco's environment has m:powered me to work hard and continue to grow in the technology field. It has definitely helped me become who I am today. Looking forward to many more years.
Support Desk Outsource Technician
As many in sales find themselves, I do not work a typical 8-5 job. Many nights after everyone in the house is asleep, I find myself up late working on customer proposals, reviews, etc. until about 11 or 12. When issues arise (and they do) it is nice to be able to call Marco help desk at any hour, to have someone work through said issue, which enables me to complete my task, and be more efficient.
What I've appreciated most about working at Marco is being given the tools to handle my responsibilities successfully. Marco leadership has encouraged me to perform at a high level by being a team player and feeding off my strengths.
Software Solutions Support Specialist
Marco does a great job of appreciating its employees as much as we appreciate Marco! I am m:powered by all of the opportunities available at Marco to mature my career.
NOC Support Desk Specialist
Marco has not only empowered me but all of its employees. I have worked for other companies that boast the work-life balance, but no company has fulfilled that as Marco has. As a newer employee, I have been entrusted with a great deal of responsibility but also with the backing of a great management staff. I am proud to call myself part of the Marco family and I look forward to many years of service.
Senior SharePoint Solutions Analyst
This is my first IT job outside of an internal department, and I enjoy my job and have so much fun helping our customers utilize technology to benefit their business. I look forward to working for Marco for a long time!

By fostering a collaborative environment and always striving for continual improvement, Marco employees find new ways to better serve their customers every day. It is this very environment that has empowered me as an employee and helped me to not only better serve my customers, but also to help my career grow.
Managed IT Supervisor
Marco empowers me by giving me the latitude to make big decisions, engage in world class training, learn from an amazing management team, recruit the best talent in our market, and give my time freely to our community. All this while, with proper planning, never having to miss a baseball game or a school concert.
I've recently started with Marco as a Technology Advisor. It has been a great experience thus far. The Marco culture is very apparent in all of the offices. Marco employees truly care about taking care of the customer, along with caring about the customers experience. I am excited to be part of an innovative, adaptive and growing, employee owned company!
When I was hired on at Marco, I was greeted with open arms from every employee, truly making Marco feel like home since day one. With Marco’s strong core and commitment to their employees, Marco has empowered me in many ways. Marco has set forth goals I want to accomplish, both long and short term, given me the opportunity to expand my knowledge, and develop myself as a leader and team player. I was able to set obtainable goals to push myself and continue to stay connected in all things IT. I enjoy tremendously what I do and I’m glad that I have such a great opportunity to continue to grow with Marco.
Support Desk Outsourced Technician
Five years ago, I felt compelled to help our growing company continue its expansion and bring us back to my roots in Wisconsin. My plan was warmly embraced by our leadership team, and in five short years, more than 65 Marco employees call Wisconsin home. I'm proud to plant the Marco flag in the Wisconsin soil, and now so many others in Wisconsin have the same great opportunity to work here.
Marco has empowered me to develop both personally and professionally. Where else could I find an opportunity that challenges me daily and makes me better, all while raising our family in a community I can call home.
I have always appreciated the support and the opportunity to develop a rewarding career while being encouraged to be a part of the community and enjoy a healthy work-life balance.
Marco has m:powered me to grow as a young professional. My job constantly challenges me to learn new technology, which in turn has made me a better technician. Marco has trusted me with additional responsibilities throughout my time here which have allowed me to personally grow my career.
NOC Support Desk Technician
From the moment I stepped through the door, Marco's culture and leadership have empowered me to work my hardest every day and be the best co-worker possible. Marco's leaders care about our company's success, as well as our personal growth. The work-life balance empowers me to get more involved in the community and be more present in my life outside of work. I look forward to growing my career at Marco!
I feel like I hit the jackpot after my previous employer was acquired by Marco over two years ago. Over that time I've had the privilege of getting additional training to help refine my selling skills. Plus, with the addition of a new manager, I have the right support to develop and deploy those skills. The future is looking bright because of how Marco has m:powered me to grow myself and our great company!
I've only been at Marco for two years, but right away I was given the opportunities to learn, manage my time and be responsible for taking care of my customers. I like that because I always have a personal connection to the people I'm providing service to.
I wasn't sure what to expect when my past employer got acquired by Marco last spring, but this has been the most pleasant transition ever. Leadership has impressed me the most. I have a wonderful supervisor who really cares about the team members needs, and co-workers I can rely on when I need them. I feel empowered by the flexibility to work independently and being trusted. It is such a joy to be able to work for a company that I can be very proud of.

Marco has proved to be a powerful partner in connecting our non-profit events with the community. Kevin Schmidt, our Junior Achievement Board Member, serves on our Marketing committee and provides strategic ideas and service. Whenever we are in a pinch for events, Kevin is there to help with printing and some layout needs with Marco's experience in the business. Marco's partnership has been vital to our "JA Back To School Bucks" campaign with a local grocery store. Thanks to their in-kind work on design, layout and printing we were able to have a successful campaign. We appreciate Marco as a fundamental partner to help convey JA's mission.
Marco’s generous financial support for the St. Cloud Fourth of July Fireworks helps insure the longest running, largest attended event in St. Cloud continues the tradition of celebrating America’s Independence Day. Central Minnesota residents and visitors are able to enjoy the history, celebration and tradition of one of America’s great holidays because of Marco’s support and encouragement. The St. Cloud Fireworks Committee and our event patrons are grateful for Marco’s participation.
St. Cloud Fireworks Committee
When I think of how our quality of life has so improved in Central Minnesota over the past decade, I immediately think of Marco. It's not just their generous donations to the arts, health care, YMCA, youth activities, and so many, many more organizations - it's their employee involvement in our community. They truly walk the talk and serve on committees, boards of directors, fundraising campaigns, and share their talents in order to help our community be the best it can be. Thank you Marco for truly caring and your unprecedented commitment.

Marco m:powers me to give my customers the best of what Marco is, by making their interaction with Marco through me the best it can possible be, m:powering the way they do their business. And in doing so, enable them to m:power their customers and employees. This creates a never ending chain of m:powerment.
I have worked for Marco for 5 years now and have never found the "FAMILY" atmosphere that I have found here. The company is the most informative of "status" and "performance" that I have ever seen. I am grateful to be working with a TEAM that is so committed to our quality results for our customers! I LOVE being a part of this ever growing and always "learning to be better" partnership. Many more years ahead, and always more to learn!
Copier Production Print Technician
After being employed with Marco for just over a year, I have learned a lot. I have been empowered by the great group of employees, not only within my own department, but through others as well. I have never been more happy or more of a pleasant person to be around since working with Marco. As an employee I am given the opportunities to better myself and to advance my career, and for that I am very grateful.
Marco empowers me to continue to learn and do my best each day. The work-life balance is a very important part of Marco’s culture and has given me the opportunity to balance a busy family life with a rewarding career. It truly shows that Marco’s leadership team genuinely cares for its' employees and its' customers.
Marco has m:powered me to move within the organization, enabling me to work towards a career I enjoy and that makes the most of my strengths, best attributes and skills. I have held 5 positions, in three different departments, over 16 years of working at Marco. With each new position there have been different challenges to work through and new paths to blaze. Although I haven’t always LOVED all aspects of every position (it’s real life, right?), I have gained business acumen and new skills with each opportunity. I have been fortunate to be on the forefront of some of the emerging departments within this company and I am proud of the accomplishments of each of those teams. I am thankful for the opportunity to be m:powered as an ever-evolving professional within this ever-evolving company.
