    I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great training and support systems in place for new hires and all employees. Awesome online tools to help educate and support all managers. Aggressively seeking new business on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Lower than national average salaries for managers. I 've been with the company 5 years with no raises, yet great performance reviews and 2 promotions - the only way to get a raise.

    Pros

    Very social of you like engaging with customers while at the same time marketing products. it's a nice side job pretty much. and my coworkers

    Cons

    when customer traffic is really fast and you can't keep up with the crowd and when traffic of customers is so slow with practically no customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only thing i have to suggest is that they don't excessive employees to try and boost sales, it doesn't work, it only ends up taking time from the current workers.

    Pros

    I work with an amazing team of people!

    Cons

    Cannot afford to live on what they pay me. I am single and $10.50 just won't and doesn't cut it anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reviews and raises for the employees that work so hard for this company!! Some kind of incentives to keep us doing the job we do everyday for you!

    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing

    Pros

    The types of jobs were both varied and routine. Many times merchandising materials were sent to your home for various assignments. Entering assignment data online was pretty easy. It was necessary to fax in reports with managers' signature on them. Easy to get in touch with your supervisor or someone on staff to answer questions -- either via email or telephone.

    Cons

    The pay was pretty low and there was a lot of driving among stores. Servicing Wal-Mart frequently was onerous because you'd have to go into the stockroom on a frustrating search to find a particular item.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training for front-line employees. Regular newsletters to front-line employees and a structured way to get raises, e.g., every year. The salary and pay for mileage was definitely low. Consider validating your employees by paying them more.

    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing

    Pros

    Working from Virtual Office.
    Supporting Field Mgt with their recruitment objectives and developing great relationships.
    Providing employment to those in need and being a constant resource of support.

    Cons

    Change of Management in TA created a downward spiral.
    When the company decided to put quantity over quality, business was lost along with employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If it's not broken don't try to fix it, especially if you don't know how. The Company should look into the the trend of the TA Dept over the years, identify where and when the company was doing 'Great' and revert back to some of the basic concepts.

    I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing

    Pros

    I love my flexible schedule. Top of the industry tools provided to do my job. ASM has a great reputation in the field that I am employed.

    Cons

    My team lacks support. There is no communication with other team members. I have once a week interaction with my supervisor for 20 minutes during a rushed conference call. I have heard the same goes for other teams. Recently there has been more focus put on our bigger volume clients leaving our smaller companies with virtually no services provided to them at all. I have been with Advantage for 8 years. In that time they've taken away my car allowance and gas card due to financial strains. I haven't gotten a raise in pay for 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication on all levels. Some peer to peer time would be very beneficial to new hires.

    Pros

    Many advancement opportunities, work/life balance and professional autonomy.

    Cons

    Pay is decent at best, raises are hard to come by and the mileage reimbursement is ever changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The minimum wage is increasing everywhere. An increase in our pay would be appreciated and timely.
