    I have been working at Baltimore Events full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Joining the team was like joining a family. The whole team was extremely welcoming and helpful during training. I learned alot in our classes but even more from the hands on training of the other employees.

    Cons

    This company is all about helping other people and really helping the team. So if someone wants to be secluded in a cubicle all day, this wouldn't be for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team days/nights are awesome! Lets have more of them!

    Pros

    The work environment is awesome! If you like to have a good time than this is the place to be. In the past month I have grown so much with this company and had so many great experiences. I can't wait to see where I'll be in 4 more months!

    Cons

    Work/life balance. I find myself going over the materials and networking sometimes a little too much. I wish I was able to time manage a little more effectively

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being awesome!

    I worked at Baltimore Events full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is a fun team atmosphere while still maintaining the focus and intensity of a rigorous training program. Even though I did not continue through the entire program I learned many skills that are relevant with my current position.

    Cons

    Work/life balance. Time management is an issue because as you grow and advance you are given a lot of responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better time management and more bonuses.

    I have been working at Baltimore Events full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Learn a ton in a very quick amount of time. I learned how to train people, cross trained on different clients, time management, and most importantly how to work towards my own goals and not someone else's.

    Cons

    Dealing with people who are not self motivated and goal oriented. Having patience with other people's learning curves and understanding everyone learns at different paces and in their own ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some more workshops and hands on training would be great.

    I have been working at Baltimore Events full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Coming from a 5+ year background in public relations, I thought I would walk into this company knowing all of the answers. What I found was that I'm learning more now about marketing, sales, public relations, and self-management than I did in college! Until Baltimore Events, I was a bit aimless in career - didn't know where I wanted to end up in 5 years or what my end goal was. Within the first 5 months at this company, while I still don't have all the answers, my team as well as management is continuing to help me get there day by day and I'm so confident I'll keep progressing! Great career move!

    Cons

    We hit the ground running in this business! Always on the move, always on the go, always networking - that could be a con to some, but I love the fast-paced nature!

    I worked at Baltimore Events as an intern

    Pros

    Team Atmosphere is great. Coming from a sports background myself I found this to be a great opportunity to be a part of a team.

    Cons

    No paid sick days. Work weekends sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More travel opportunities would have been great. In the internship program I would have liked to learn more about how to be a better leader and also public speaking.I will definitely re apply next year when I have the time to work!

    I have been working at Baltimore Events full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed having the opportunity to attend the top leaders meeting in Dallas and getting to network with people across the company including top owners. I enjoy being a part of a company that is dedicated to your success.

    Cons

    Everyone doesn't appreciate the opportunities as much as others which is sad to see

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like the management. They work very hard! Human resources dept is wonderful and so helpful! I say continue caring the way you guys do and you will always have happy employees.

    I have been working at Baltimore Events full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Its very organized and fast paced. Everyone here is on point, and are great at working together to see things through. The management and leadership skills I have learned in the past 5 months are priceless, and I feel like I'm getting paid to go to school!! This company has the best training I've ever experienced anywhere because they are growing quickly and their standards are high!

    Cons

    Sometimes other members of the team can be careless when counting inventory and paying attention to detail which can set the whole team back in the long run when trying to hit our goals. However, we are all like a big family here and are great at problem solving so any issue thats ever occurred was always resolved well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication about schedule changes... more TV and Lap top bonuses please!! Christmas was awesome!!
