    I worked at The Toro Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Worked for The Toro Group for about 2 years and found there to be a good balance of interacting with Clients, vendors, and media contacts on a regular basis and having the opportunity to carry out projects from beginning to end.

    Most days are very busy with a variety of projects to get out for Clients, or the Agency. Hard working, diligent group of professionals that take their work seriously and are focused on getting the job done.

    Cons

    Though there was some overlap week-to-week with responsibliities, every day was unique with different projects to get out (print ads, radio, tv, direct mail, collateral, digital-related marketing).

    I worked at The Toro Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work was never boring, and I was always challenged with interesting projects. Because it is a full-service ad agency, I learned a lot about all components of advertising (internet and traditional), marketing, media, and Client relations. Overall, excellent opportunity to advance a career and a major catalyst for me professionally.

    Cons

    Hours were sometimes heavy, but they were balanced with comp days and time off.

    Pros

    Working at the Toro Group, you will gain plenty of experience - learning to manage a multitude of tasks and projects- while working side-by-side with co-workers who are very willing to help out whenever possible. This is a good place to help further a career in advertsing and will prepare you for just about anything.

    Cons

    This isn't an easy job, and will require someone who can handle a multitude of tasks and projects without stressing easily.

    The Toro Group has allowed me to merge from my knowledge in sales to growth in the advertising/marketing field.

    Pros

    As an account executive, you are entrenched in dealing with all aspects of advertising and CRM- graphics, selling, accounting, project management, relationship management, and brand compliance management.

    Cons

    Much of the training is based on on the job experience. Although it was tough at first, learning the business through trial and error on my own has really helped me work as an independant employee allowing me to take my manager out of the equation.
