    I worked at RedPeg Marketing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I learned a ton about marketing and enjoyed the chance to work with a few of their clients.

    Cons

    Some long hours and a little turnover with the team I worked with, but no major complaints. I left for personal reasons not related to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Some times a little more hands on approach would be beneficial but overall I had a positive experience and would recommend to others.

    Pros

    relationship based, stick to their word, straight forward, trust worthy, gives benefit when trouble-shooting occurs, payments are always accurate and on-time. There are some real top notch people in this company who have been there a long time and are significantly great at what they do, especially in the staffing department. Loyal, direct, able to relate and understand real life circumstances.

    Cons

    minimal room for growth of new workers in-house or outsourced. Not everyone is on the same page or level of professionalism, depending on the program manager you may luck out and have a smooth scenario, or be in for some real high level stressful and frustrating situations.

    Advice to Management

    Please trust your long-term staff and support teams and continue to place faith in them, whenever possible keep the work-load of those people who have proven track records going and allow them to bring in the support they need to keep clients happy. There are resources who are being under utilized who have interest and ability to help much more than currently.

    I worked at RedPeg Marketing part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy money, fun environment, flexible scheduling. It's very traditional experiential marketing. If you like people and can sustain enthusiasm -- you got it.

    Cons

    Weird scheduling, long drives. You can never really gauge how many hours you'll be getting and this is definitely not meant to be a main, full-time position. But great money for college kids or people who need some extra cash

    Advice to Management

    Middle management is way too unorganized

    I have been working at RedPeg Marketing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Traveling across the country and managing fun events Well paid salary and industry standard per-diem Working with minimal supervision Good support from office staff

    Cons

    The clients can be unreasonably demanding at times which has caused conflict between the office and field staff. However, for the most part, the office staff would back you up when it came to safety and DOT.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed working with the management team.

    I have been working at RedPeg Marketing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Innovative experiential marketing campaigns Work hard, play hard environment Workplace wellness programmes Company retreats Video games and beer fridges Good people. Strong leadership

    Cons

    Cliquey 'frat house' environment Poor compensation and long work hours Feeling based performance review process instead of S.M.A.R.T. system Lack of empowerment at lower levels Big investments in 'senior management' without proper financial analysis Good people but in the wrong roles (at the time) Vulnerable to massive layoffs if revenue generation doesn't reach/exceed goals Over-structured account management

    Advice to Management

    Invest and empower your lower level account managers Provide SMART/360 degree performance reviews Don't try and grow too fast without proper financial planning Stop spending so much on your executive team and promote from within Reward those who work hard

    I worked at RedPeg Marketing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great clients and opportunities. A funhouse vibe on the surface that works well for junior employees. Never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Big time management issues. Most senior leadership micromanages creative and has a controlling mentality but doesn't let the pros with maturity do what they do best. This place could be a juggernaut if it wasn't so tightly squeezed. There is a consistent pattern of three year terms and also of senior talent leaving after pushing for meaningful change for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Let go. Find great leaders, give them some meaningful equity or upside and let them run.

    Pros

    Experiential marketing is a cool field. Team is really creative. Low client turnover.

    Cons

    The innovation and ability to read the market seems limited. Doesn't seem to be many new big clients.
