    Former Employee - Right Seat(Product Specialist) in Marina del Rey, CA

    I worked at Automotive Marketing Consultants Inc as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some people hope for a traditional 9-5 job, and I do not. I love working on a 4-8 week(or longer) tour travelling the USA with fun and intelligent coworkers, and passing our product knowledge and brand presence onto the consumer in an ever changing environment. After the 4-8 week project is done, I can schedule another project to begin in the future and travel for my own enjoyment until then! Pay is great, especially if you can live in a cheaper city. Being able to say that you work for a OMNICOM owned company also looks great on a resume, and I'm sure it helps provide more structure to AMCI. My hotel and airline miles are also higher than most, which is nice for getting upgrades! The exposure to both the automotive industry and to the experiential marketing industry can open opportunities elsewhere.

    Cons

    For those who have specific budgeting needs and need to know exactly how much they will make every month, AMCI is not the best. After working a tour, sometimes it can take a few weeks to a month before your next tour is scheduled and you need to have the money to weather the slow times. Also, for the family person hoping to be at home with his kids or spouse, it is difficult because there is a ton of travel involved if you are working full time. I fit AMCI tours around my personal business schedule, and it works out great for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give tour members advancement opportunities, more transparent pay and/or reasons for differences in pay. Give them the opportunity for training on new skills to keep them relevant in the experiential marketing world(OSHA certification, etc). The new scheduling system that is being unveiled currently will hopefully help fix any scheduling problems that can arise when sending hundreds and hundreds of people to all corners of the country. Overall while there is always room for improvement I'd say that things are

    Pros

    Supportive, fun group with team spirit galore! They're the leader in automotive marketing and it shows. They know their stuff and expect that you will too. Great opportunities for advancement. It's a place you can call home.

    Cons

    One of the things that made AMCI #1 is their work ethic, which means long hours, weekends and acts of heroism. If you thrive in this kind of environment, you will be richly rewarded. Clock watchers need not apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though a lean staff helps keep profits high, a larger crew would reduce wear and tear on your people and their loved ones.

    I worked at Automotive Marketing Consultants Inc as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Solid company mission. They do pick up industry contracts. Many long-time employees are superbly able.

    Cons

    Very poor at recognizing new talent. I came to the company with a solid background in event producing and management and yet was started at entry level and then really kept down there for months. I ended up reporting to people with less than a quarter of my experience. Overall, the field teams are very clique-ish. Occasionally, unprofessional behavior is over looked and accepted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you paid some attention to the skill that your new hires were bringing to the table you might be much more successful.
