    Pros

    It has a lot of job opportunities for someone that is starting a career and wants to act as extended sales force in trade marketing. Portfolio of clients is superb (Whirlpool, Philips, HP, RedBull, Nokia/Microsoft, adidas, Legrand, Coteminas, Nespresso among others). Great coworkers in an informal and friendly environment.

    Cons

    It is passing through restructuring process as it was acquired by a large Contact Center and BPO company (Contax Group). Opportunities for career in the upper hierarchy are pretty scarce with the new defined levels of reporting.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to add value to the clients under the risk of becoming just another commoditized trade marketing agency as any other in the market and with the disadvantage of having a higher cost to the client.

  7. Ok place to work. Not bad not awesome.

    Pros

    Nice people, not hard intern competition and fair salary. Place to learn and practice.

    Word word word word word word.

    Cons

    No chance of growing. Company without management or intern culture.

    Word word word word word word word word word word.

    Advice to Management

    Should think more on company results on med-long term not thinking in a company to stay just 2-3 years, earn some money and get out.

    Pros

    Fun place to work
    Great company culture
    Training provided
    Interesting projects
    Opportunity to travel
    Annual company trip to Florida or Carribean

    Cons

    Support work can be repetitive
    Sometimes a lot of pressure and stress with deadlines
    Not a lot of communication sometimes about how the company is doing
    Bonus incentives

    Advice to Management

    Junior staff don't appreciate the benefits or incentives. There has to be a much better way to communicate this to people. Some locations get benefits that others don't. This doesn't seem to be fair.

  11. Contax is not the best place to work, but not the worst.
