    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential. Great atmosphere. Awesome incentives. Great insurance plan.

    Cons

    a few lazy people that don't get it.

    Advice to Management

    keep pushing your reps that are actually there to work and drop the reps that are just hanging around to collect a pay check.

    Pros

    Benefits immediately Incentive trips You work, you sell They are able to get practically any ticket to an event a client would like

    Cons

    No 401k 8:30-5:30 There has been a lot of turnover at ICM but things were looking up before I left. The complainers in the office were the same people who had a low number in sales.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps pizza weekly?

    Pros

    So funny how people start posting terrible things then all of a sudden two good reviews come about. These reviews are from management.

    Cons

    This company is like a sweatshop. If you have never been to a Communist country but want to visit. Start working at ICM

    Advice to Management

    Nothing can be done, its a job for the desperate

    Pros

    Decent starting salary. Benefits kick off as soon as your hired

    Cons

    YOU have to research your OWN leads. If you do this at home and are reaching the decision makers then you have a chance.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct an occasional training session to make sure no one falls into bad habits

    Pros

    Close to Penn Station The office has heat. starting wage is decent

    Cons

    Unprofessional psuedo sales people all around you. No training Cant be late one minute late, literally, or you will be chastized. Crazy amount of favortism and office drama, it would make even a reality star cringe

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your employees with some professionalism. Cursing every second doesnt help. possibly train people? some telling us about all the money you made in 1999

    I have worked for ICM Marketing for years and it is a great career choice!

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    The starting Salary is $50k annually and the office is near Penn Station. You can bring your water bottle and they will let you use their fridge. Everyone runs out at 5:30 pm.

    Cons

    No training very unfriendly and border line barbaric company culture. Top sales people yell and curse at the newer sales people while actively telling them they want you to fail so as they can get your business.The culture is motivation by threatening your job on a weekly basis and listening to your every phone call.You are video tapped in the office and every word you utter is recorded.You are counted as to how many times you go to the bathroom which is gross. You get weekly emails criticizing your work in a malicious spirited email from a person you have never meet. Top sales people run out all the new guys and try take their deals. Hasn't been clean in a decade.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example not with threats and cursing. It might be time to start looking for a new job when you cant keep an employee for more then 3 months.

    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 Management

    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 Management

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