    I worked at Advantage Business Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have (when I worked there) many very nice and helpful employees and also, I found the customer's within the markets that I called on to be great.

    Cons

    Just timing (I was there at the onset of the recession...very bad timing).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. I don't advise management (they wouldn't listen to me anyhow).

    No opinion of CEO

    I truly valued my employment and position at ABM and regret that I was laid off.

    I worked at Advantage Business Media

    Pros

    ABM provides its employees with autonomy to perform their job in a way that fits their own personal way of doing business. I enjoyed being given the independence to control my own performance and success which enabled me to be at 97% to plan (when the company as a whole was 71% to revenue goal) when I was laid off.

    Cons

    I found that while ABM had the right intentions (to be successful and profitable as a relatively new company) the leadership and management team lacked the ability to put a plan in place to achieve success and see it through. Their "throw it at the wall and see what sticks" approach created feelings of uncertainty and insecurity company wide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I appreciate the leadership and management team's ability to hire talent from many different backgrounds and feel that it makes for a diversified company with opportunities to learn from peers. Keep it up!

    I have been working at Advantage Business Media

    Pros

    ABM is a good place to work but you have to be self-sufficient and motivated.

    -Laid back atmosphere
    -Possibility to make EXCELLENT starting wage
    -Excellent benefits package
    -Opportunities for travel
    -Coworkers are helpful and eager to teach

    Cons

    -Training is poor, you have to be good at learning on the fly and have a natural ability to work in this atmosphere.
    -Some sales people are caddy and dramatic, but don't bother you if you don't bother them
    -Management will come down on you hard if you are not doing your job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek out employee feedback more often
