Great Company, Very Low Pay

Account Manager (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Marketing Werks full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWonderful culture, great for anyone just out of school, most everyone is very nice and easy-going, coming to work is fun, you get to keep travel miles and get to book personal hotel and flights (so you can use preferred chains), work can be challenging and fun

ConsPoor day-to-day management, some teams make it easy to get by without doing a lot of work, feels like a high school clique at times, weekend travel with little to no "reset" time or vacation compensation, lots of travel in general, no real sense of urgency until the last minute, enforcement of policy is lacking, very high turnover rate, bonuses that make you feel worse than not getting one at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe upper management is absolutely wonderful and very approachable, however day-to-day management needs more training. Marketing Werks wastes a lot of money and time by not properly training manager. Additionally, the company recently implemented Marketing Werks University, but a lot of the classes are not well structured - they should have more structure, be more professional and be mandatory. Once you become an Account Manager, your opportunities for growth and development within the company taper off unless you get moved to a piece of new business to run yourself - this needs to change to keep people around.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Work attire is basically anything… Cons: The hourly wage for interns is not much, but that could be ok for the interns who are still in school and still getting support… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
