    I worked at Carlson Marketing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Carlson Marketing was a phenomenal place to work. Our list of Fortune 100 clients was most impressive. Great, motivated people. An awesome IT organization. Passion & commitment to serve clients well.

    Cons

    The role of loyalty marketing has changed dramatically as technology and the internet have changed the way people work and how they interact with suppliers & services. The products & services of this Marketing Services Legend were not changing fast enough to serve the evolving marketplace.

    Pros

    Amazing, talented and funny people. A serious, "what if..." and "Why don't we..." attitude. Open to ideas.

    Cons

    Some people are not so good at communicating. Passive aggressive. Just say what you think. Don't whine, make it better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out the people who don't care about the work. They are poison.
