A great place to be all that you can be!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing full-time for more than 8 years

ProsI have been with the company a number of years and continue to be impressed by the opportunities it presents to its people to grow; its ability to stop, listen, and embrace the views of its associates; its focus on doing what's right; and always trying to be even better. If you work hard, you will not only see first-hand how your contributions make a difference but be recognized.

ConsTruly no cons to speak of.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fantastic Company Driven By Entrepreneurial Spirit

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing full-time for more than 3 years

ProsASM is a large and dynamic organization so the opportunities for growth are endless. Working hard is rewarded in terms of compensation, recognition and career advancement.

ConsBecause ASM is a national organization you do not often get to interact with associates across the country at once. Holding national meetings more often will allow the ASM associates to connect and collaborate in person leading to greater company success.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease continue to push for better communication within the organization. The recent focus on this area has led to a more engaged and connected team.

Roller Coaster Ride-Amazing when on the upside and very disappointing when things aren't going well.

Recruiter (Current Employee)
Irvine, CA

I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing full-time for more than a year

ProsThe people you work with internally and clients.

ConsDecisions are made by people who have never held roles within the areas of change, which results in negative outcome all across the board.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no need to fix something that is not broken and if you do not understand it you have no business making changes or attempting to improve it. You have lost really amazing people in the Talent Acquisition Department

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
