    Carlson Marketing has some of the best people in the industry working there.

    Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) Plymouth, MN

    ProsThe people you work with are professionals and care about what they are doing and want to help their clients succeed.

    ConsUpper Management needs to figure out what they want Carlson Marketing to be now and into the near future. Upper Management also needs to put assets back into the infrastructure of the company to make sure they can stay competitive to keep clients.

    Fast pace, many opportunities if you go after it, company is constantly shifting

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsVariety of work, Large clients with big brand names, Loyalty Marketing is taking off again, get to live in Minnesota

    ConsNo one looks out for your career. It will only advance if you make it happen. Work life balance is sometimes challenging.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure everyone understands your strategy. Not everyone knows you actually have a strategy. For those that do know you have one, they are not sure it is the right strategy.

    great thinkers, old tech

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- good people
    - good client contacts
    - good name in the industry

    Cons- compensation continues to shrink
    - little opportunity for growth/change
    - client services support continues to be reduced

    Advice to Senior Managementseems top heavy right now, would be good to streamline into one sales force. need to improve technology offerings to better match thought leadership - right now we're out of sync. we can talk the talk, but can't walk the walk very cost-effectively or efficiently.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
