    Great place to start post MBA and great place to leave after a few years!

    Current Employee - Associate Marketing Manager in Minneapolis, MN
    Current Employee - Associate Marketing Manager in Minneapolis, MN
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great amount of responsibility early on; Surrounded by smart people from top MBA programs who can create a strong network (you will need it); Can make an impact as a leader and bolster your resume to get headhunted by several other CPGs/marketing firms in more geographically desireable locations; Managers don't track vacation - more of an honor system as long as you get the job done

    Cons

    Tough learning curve for new hires; Can be challenging to maintain work/life balance especially dependent on manager; you have input but no real say in your rotation structure/management/projects; very difficult to make real friends or date as a transplant to the area (locals can be colder than the winters!)

    Advice to Management

    More clarity on compensation policies as well as performance management ratings; Continue focusing on improving managers abilities to lead and inspire employees rather than overwork and intimidate them; Somehow figure out how to improve time to promotion (has moved from 3 now to 5+ years from hire date in less than a decade due to backlog of managers)
