    Good if you need a summer job and don't expect fair pay for the work asked of you as a Fios Specialist

    I worked at Marketing Werks full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Here you will sell top products. Freedom to work at your own pace.

    Cons

    They pay you monthly commissions based off weekly tiers. This really seemed unfair. It takes 2 months to even see a commission anyway. You have no benefits. You have no sick days or vacation days until you complete a full year employment. With gas prices at $3.80 per gallon you will have to loose an additional $200.00 in gas alone because you wont be reimbursed for it. That number does not count all the wear and tear on your personal automobile. Bottom line is for the amount of work required you will make a heck of a lot more working for you local cable provider.

    I have been working at Marketing Werks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Casual attire; fun company events; fun employees; great office location in downtown Chicago; young culture; great for those in need for immediate post-graduation employment (their job requirements are minimal).

    They host occasional 'Day of Fun' events (DOF) that range from bags tournaments, trips to horse tracks and local sports team games.

    If you're outgoing, you'll be a good fit for an internal position. The office is cliquey and if you don't fit in you will have trouble advancing.

    Cons

    Very low compensation when compared to industry averages; long hours requiring large amounts of travel; high stress and under-staffed account teams.

    Most of the junior staffers hired are not experienced or educated in marketing, so it can lead to frustration when trying to complete projects.

    The executive management team hires very conservatively, so be prepared to work long hours and handle a large workload. It will not change as you advance, either. Stress and expectations will only increase exponentially, but compensation does not keep pace with either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review compensation packages and get competitive within the industry. Begin to implement flex time to allow internal employees to work from home when returning from long periods of travel.

    Begin to hire targeted, experienced and educated marketing and business professionals, not just folks desperate to land that first job; just because they're cheap and eager doesn't mean that they're a good fit for the work they'll be expected to accomplish.
