    I have been working at B&G Marketing Concepts

    Pros

    Working at BGMC has been a great experience. For those looking to enter the world of marketing or those who enjoy working for non profit organizations this is the opportunity of a lifetime. We are a company who is fueled by entrepreneurial minds. There is training for employees from the very beginning. Employees learn a plethora of marketing principals, communication skills, and improving the way they present themselves. The company culture is amazing. Company employees treat each other as friends and equals. They encourage each other to grow as much as possible. BGMC does not hire external management for our company. We only promote employees from within the company. Promotions are offered within in very reasonable time periods as opposed to waiting years like other companies.

    Cons

    The company needs more employees who are hungry for success. BGMC is a team of young, very driven individuals who are driven by various factors. One thing can definitely said for certain with every promotion is a chance to get a higher salary. Entry level associates in the firm make a great salary even at the starting point in their careers. Upper level management is always available to provide new employees with guidance, motivation, and direction. The CEO is very accommodating to the employees needs, different situations, and is always available to help.

    I have been working at B&G Marketing Concepts full-time

    Pros

    Nothing good about this place expect well dressed people who are sitting to con you

    Cons

    You basically have to get wear business professional clothes and get donations and sell SIM cards. They make it seem like it’s a very fancy workspace but they just expect u to be out on the streets and malls and harass people. Please do not waste your time going to them for any “interview”

    Pros

    The location. Besides that there are no Pros

    Cons

    Don't waste your time interviewing at B&G Advertising. The whole office is unorganized and very unprofessional with their interviewing process. Most employees don'y even have a Bachelor's degree. They tell you your "position" is an entry level account executive and within 6 months of training you will be promoted. Their website is confusing and misleading. If you know your academic worth don't waste time with this company. B&G is a complete SCAM

    Pros

    Hardly anything, if you're looking for a part-time job in high school this might be a fit

    Cons

    Do not be fooled- they are simply trying to hire people to stand around in subways so they can attempt to talk to New Yorkers but in reality, be quickly brushed off. They maintain they are very transparent but in reality keep you in the dark purposefully so you don't see how you are being mistreated. THey hire a ton of people and they're waiting room is constantly full because of such a high turn over rate.

    I have been working at B&G Marketing Concepts

    Pros

    None really. You get paid 35 dollars a day to harrass people on the streets.

    Cons

    People working there barely make ends meet. The vast majority of them are slumped in credit card debt.

    Pros

    Positive, upbeat environment. Great people to work with and managers are always available and accessible for whatever help you may need.

    Cons

    Money you make is entirely up to you. Base pay is not great at all. If you are commuting in and out of the city for this job you'll find you don't have much time for a life outside of this job. If you seek a work/life balance, it'll be extremely hard to maintain.
