Incredible team to be apart of, owner that invests in you professionally and personally, access to great benefits that matches and surpasses other marketing firms I have worked for, salaries that beat the big marketing firms, opportunity for growth within the company and great travel.
Before coming to SMM, I worked for a national marketing firm in Dallas with massive clients, where I often left well past the sun going down, sometimes 60 hours a week. I was a small cog in a huge machine who basically just ran reports for my bosses, with little to no room for my ideas. SMM is a full service marketing firm, but a much different experience. I came on as a copywriter/video editor, was given the opportunity to work on and even develop creative campaigns. Eventually I was able to help present to clients. The owner recognized my ability to work with clients and promoted me to account management. I was able to travel to great cities all over the country for work but also exploring and good times. Having had a hand in many different parts of the business, I shared my ideas for the future of the company and was given the green light to essentially create my own title and position in within business development and growing the company.
SMM requires you to work on campaigns with specific directions from the clients and ownership, but also encourages you to be progressive, think outside the box and bring your own ideas to the table. I was able to implement several new initiatives of my own- some worked, some didn't, but I never would have had that chance at a larger firm with a line of bosses to go through. Ownership also encourages growth through constant education and even pays for employees to attend conferences and other training in certain instances.
I don't really understand the few negative things I see on here. My experience was great, I left to pursue a different avenue of business, one that I would not have found unless I was allowed to experiment at SMM and the owner actually helped me move on. If you don't like working with a small, tight-knit team of around 10 or so then it might not be the right fit. The learning curve for the medical field is difficult at first, and the clients can be demanding, as they are physician owners, but the team helps you transition smoothly over the first few months.
I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Stubenbordt Medical Marketing (Roanoke, TX).
Interview in the office to determine your personal and professional goals as well as previous experience. You are introduced to the entire team and given a detailed overview of clients and the history behind the company. There is some time taken to access what you know about medical terms, specifically ophthalmology, but I believe this is just to see what you might know as a bonus.
