    Pros

    Carlson Marketing was a phenomenal place to work. Our list of Fortune 100 clients was most impressive. Great, motivated people. An awesome IT organization. Passion & commitment to serve clients well.

    Cons

    The role of loyalty marketing has changed dramatically as technology and the internet have changed the way people work and how they interact with suppliers & services. The products & services of this Marketing Services Legend were not changing fast enough to serve the evolving marketplace.

    Pros

    Amazing, talented and funny people. A serious, "what if..." and "Why don't we..." attitude. Open to ideas.

    Cons

    Some people are not so good at communicating. Passive aggressive. Just say what you think. Don't whine, make it better.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the people who don't care about the work. They are poison.

    Pros

    Variety of work, Large clients with big brand names, Loyalty Marketing is taking off again, get to live in Minnesota

    Cons

    No one looks out for your career. It will only advance if you make it happen. Work life balance is sometimes challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone understands your strategy. Not everyone knows you actually have a strategy. For those that do know you have one, they are not sure it is the right strategy.

    Pros

    The people you work with are professionals and care about what they are doing and want to help their clients succeed.

    Cons

    Upper Management needs to figure out what they want Carlson Marketing to be now and into the near future. Upper Management also needs to put assets back into the infrastructure of the company to make sure they can stay competitive to keep clients.
