Pros

Amazing work atmosphere and culture. Not a bad place to launch a career in digital advertising and learn the ropes. No cap on time off and flexible work options once you've established yourself as a proven rep.

Cons

Little chance for career growth or upward mobility. Impossible to obtain compensation increase from corporate level.

    Pros

    Fun environment, young staff, fairly young company. There really is a great possibility to move up in the services side of the company if you are willing to wait it out. If not, you could easily get a job at another SEM type company with a slightly higher pay.

    Cons

    Lack of compensation. Constantly adding new roles to the job without any increase in compensation. Managers are stretched way too thin and do not have the opportunity to manage effectively. Because of this, the product is suffering and weaker employees are continuing to be hired and get less and less effective training.

    There is also a fairly low morale among a few of the employees. I have never heard somebody bad mouth a company so much without getting fired. If they want to build morale they need to improve the perception of the position and get rid of the people who are openly constantly saying how much they hate their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your managers to manage and stop hiring people who are clearly not qualified for the job. It is only hurting the company and the product. If new hires do not know how to use the product and make it better they are making it worse.

    Massive pressure, micro-managed, recent product offerings don't favor IMC

    Pros

    If you need a stepping stone into digital marketing, you can give it a go, but this is not a long-term opportunity.

    Cons

    You go to great training, they teach you great processes for quality prospecting and phone calls and then when you start it becomes clear it's all about the quantity of calls, not the quantity. You cannot step in and make good money. It will take at least a year to reach a level where you can make over $75K. They micro-manage and write you up if you dont make 400 calls a month, regardless of your sales! There are a lot of other jobs where you can make that money the first few months. You are starting at ZERO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish I could, but they are setting everything up to please wall street, not to help IMCs. All the good reviews here are from recruiters, not IMCs. Read the IMC reviews.
