    Pros

    The events themselves were enjoyable.

    Cons

    I worked an event in June. It is now almost October and I can't get anyone to return my emails or calls about the paycheck I have yet to receive. I have been storing the account's assets since June and have no idea what to do with them.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, Pay your BAs

    Pros

    Set up accounts in Chico CA to market and promote Jameson Whiskey within the community, hiring and training promoters, Ensure Sales Quotas were met at each event, briefing accounts and clients of how many ways Jameson Whiskey can be enjoyed responsibly. Keep track of promotional items for each event. Effectively promoting the brand with quality and fun.
    Attack Marketing always ensured I was given all materials needed to effectively manage my responsibilities.

    Cons

    As with all Independent Contractor positions, it can take up to three months after your event to receive payment.

    Pros

    There isn't much to say here

    Cons

    Current and Future Clients BEWARE. This company is run by businessmen who squander your money. They don't care about their clients, or their staff.

    Clients, if you want unhappy staff to be calling or emailing you about all of their issues with Attack, then hire these guys! They will do a great job at that!

    Advice to Management

    Go work at a real agency to see how its done.

    Pros

    Good programs and good pay for projects.

    Cons

    The worst when it comes to payment. I am surprised that Stillhouse Whiskey still uses them. Not a good marketing liaison to represent your brand. This company should be shut down from the BBB,EEOC, and DOL. Too many red flags.

    Advice to Management

    Close until further notice. Also pay full as contracted.

    I have been working at Attack! Marketing & Promotions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Owners listen to feed and are flexible. Lots of business coming in the door with really strong skilled team. I don't mind working overtime because I love my job. Love the people. Growing pains are good!

    Cons

    Growing fast so things are getting structured, but it can still be a sink or swim job.

    Advice to Management

    Get the word out about the New Attack! This is not the company it was even 6 months ago. Lots of great improvements, and lots of new business.

    I have been working at Attack! Marketing & Promotions (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has gone through a ton of restructuring over the last 2 years and is growing rapidly. There is still a lot of restructuring to go. This is awesome for people who are entrepreneurial minded and like coming in and helping implement process and procedures. This may not work for people who arent used to the small business, start up work style.

    Management has transitioned many negative people out. The team being built is full of positive, smart, hard working, individuals and its great to actually like the people you work with. They call it a "drama free" agency and the team is really that way.

    Cons

    Heavy work loads and the company is growing rapidly so trying to keep up with hiring seems like its a challenge currently.

    The negative reviews on here are for brand ambassadors that have worked promotional events. There were long payment waiting period in 2014 / 2015 for some programs and that has spilled over to negative reviews online. This has been restructured and the Finance department is doing better but more improvement is needed.

    Advice to Management

    Completely fix the finance department to resolve any lingering payment issues with Brand Ambassadors. Hire more employees to spread work load out more. Keep improving processes to make everyone's job easier.
