An entire company full of corporate cheerleaders

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Memphis, TN

Pros

Benefits and coworkers are above average. Pay and hours can be great, if you're careful. They've taken steps to address pay-rate concerns long-time employees have had, but as a recent employee I haven't experienced this.

Accommodating management, Monday-Friday casual dress, and awesome facilities make for a pretty great place to work.

Cons

The cheer leading gets old, and they'll quickly make you feel out of place if you actually are there 'just for a paycheck'. This is intentional. You have to play along to get the most out of the job, and 25% of your coworkers are too. The rest have actually drunk the kool-aid.

Upper management moves around like they're playing musical chairs, and there's no rhyme or reason to it half the time. The rest of us just get to kinda churn about along with them.

    Pros

    The mission is unbeatable and the skills you gain are immeasurable. A company car is also a bonus. When you work a million hours, you'll get a "comp" day here and there. Supported my personal growth and development as long as it didn't interfere with current work load.

    Cons

    You work like a dog. Always asked to do more with less. You're expected to work many nights and weekends. Culture of the company depends on the region where you work. Some were great, others not so much. Career growth in the field is incredibly limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do management training before people become managers.

    Pros

    Very hands on and a great group of people. There are opportunities to learn a lot about the process for each of the events in their portfolio while you're there.

    Cons

    If you don't love working outside the 9 to 5, event marketing is not for you.
