    I worked at Baltimore Events part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked with Baltimore Events last summer as an 3 month Intern. I learned a lot and got the opportunity to travel to multiple different markets and attend several different training seminars. I was able to get promoted within 3 weeks of starting to a trainer position, and I'm really glad I was able to get more experience managing a team due to the fact I only had experience managing people in the restaurant industry.

    Cons

    This position is for someone who is looking to be challenged and take on more responsibilities. This position was not sitting at a desk pushing papers type of internship. I had the opportunity to manage 3 events myself. I had opportunities to train. I had opportunities to learn 5 different clients. I held training sessions at the office. It was great to be pushed out of my comfort zone, but this is not for someone just looking for a same thing day to day type position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication about expectations within the first week would be great. I would have really liked to have received a training manual for all the clients the company works with so I would have been well versed with all the clients the company works for.

    I have been working at Baltimore Events full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The office environment is great, as are the people who work there. It's incredibly educational -- I've learned more applicable skills here than I did in my four years at a prestigious university. The growth potential here is unlimited, it's all dependent on how hard you work, learn, and maintain a positive attitude. Management is incredibly hands on and supportive.

    Cons

    The fast pace and workload may not be for everyone, as is the case with many other jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing your time into your people and you'll continue to grow.

    Pros

    My favorite thing about BE is the fact that my input equals the output. We are recognized for our hard work and promoted for it immediately - there is no timeline for growth, which I've rarely seen in the workplace.

    Cons

    Working with people who aren't self-motivated and have to be micromanaged and told what to do all the time, it's just time consuming.

    Pros

    I was hired at Baltimore Events with no experience in interactive marketing. I worked really hard during the training process to ensure I would get up to speed quickly. I wanted to work hard so I could move up and that’s exactly what happened.

    Cons

    I have only have positive experiences so far with my team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love how engaged you keep the team and am excited to see what happens in the future.

    Pros

    Nice people and nice office.

    Cons

    Very unclear up front what is expected. Say goodbye to your social life completely. You will work every weekend with maybe one day off per week. If you want to be a direct salesman or door-to-door salesman then this is perfect. Otherwise, you don't need any sort of college degree. A lot of driving and very long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more up front in the interview with what is expected.

    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!

    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
