Pros

Like any sales you can make good money.

Cons

The sales floor is dead quiet, The training is basically a joke with everyone telling you different things that contradict each other. The sales team is filled with ex bunk mortgage and used car sales types that couldn't close a door let alone a real complex sales situation. The top sales guy is a joke but walks around like he's God and thinks 800k in sales is a big deal.

The service they sell is actually a gimmick involving ticket packages. It shows very little confidence in the strength of their publications and they preach NOT TO USE AN ROI PITCH. Not a good sign. If you focus on long term goals you can make money but chances are they won't give you the time in which case you'll scrounge around selling tiny ads to merchant businesses and the get disciplined for not making enough money

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get off your high horse. Motivate your sales staff in a positive way and focus on long term success with bigger deals.

    Pros

    You're indoors.
    SOME of the people are cool.

    Cons

    Training? What training? A 3 ring binder. Make phone calls.
    Managers do not manage anything. Make phone calls.
    Computers and systems are XP ancient. Make phone calls.
    Derogatory emails on your performance from someone you've never met. Make phone calls.
    Your every move is recorded and logged. LITERALLY. Make phone calls.
    Weekly meetings are nothing but a scream session and a whip. Make more phone calls.
    Lose half the employees through firing or quitting every single month. Make phone calls.
    Senior staff average about a year in tenure with company. Make phone calls.
    If you don't like it, there's the door. Make phone calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your base will continue to dwindle as long as you focus on short term gain over long term growth.

    I have been working at Ideal Corporate Marketing

    Pros

    Ideal corporate marketing is an inside sale position. After reading the previous reviews it seems as though some of the former employees clearly weren't cut out for a sales job. I have worked here for several years and if you put in effort and work at reaching your goals you will be rewarded! There are quarterly sales trips rewarded to the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, etc. there are bonuses and a commission structure in which you can make a lot of money! These reviews are from people who wanted a paycheck handed to them and didn't have the drive to succeed and grow within a great company!

    Cons

    Some employees want a paycheck handed to them without putting in the effort and hard work that is expected at any job let alone a sales position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, the hard working, sales driven, career focused employees will continue to bring in money and exceed the sales goals!
