    It all depends on a persons attitude

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Sales Executive in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Sales Executive in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Marcus Evans full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Opportunity to travel around the world
    -Most people are wonderful to work with (some bad eggs)
    -Great place to learn a lot about different industries
    -Learn to work with many different kinds of people
    -You can thrive or sink here
    -Learn to really sell (you are not selling selling clothing at Macy's, so don't expect it to be something you learn overnight)
    -Getting to meet high level executives is never a bad thing
    -The Summit brand is the best division to work in- But if you work hard in conferences there is room to grow

    Cons

    -People are in it for themselves (pro or con)
    -They won't put a lot of money/training into a person until they show they are worth it
    -Starting pay is low (but if you are good in sales you can make real money)
    -This is not a happy go lucky place (Marcus Evans is a British company that means business)
    -If you are applying for a sales role know it's on the phone
    -People who don't last here are for three reasons: 1. They don't like working on the phone 2. They don't understand the process (which works) 3. They give up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update the website
