Good Company to Start Your Post MBA Career

Associate Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsGood training and development. The company let's you take early responsibility as a marketer and you learn General Management principles early on.

ConsPassive aggressive culture can lead to some surprises. The marketing track is extremely competitive and it's not always about your performance when it comes to getting promotion. Bottom line there's not enough spots for everyone so stay close to your headhunters. Get off to a fast start your first year or forget about getting to the next level. The best and brightest are at the company's choice so any blemishes can hurt.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent with your promotion practices; no need to keep us all in the dark. Also, invest in training your managers to actually manage and develop people. They're great at running business but not all are created equal when developing people. Very hit or miss at that can hurt you early.
