Big agency with BIG turnover

Event Coordinator (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

ProsYoung environment, lots of fun office outings, work is exciting and new. A great thing to have on your resume if you're interested in sports marketing.

ConsAll of your hours must be 100% billable, they get a lot of small seasonal contracts which means people come and go often. Very low pay.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
