    I have been working at CG International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This was my first job interview after coming to the U.S. Born and raised in Kingston Jamaica studying for a bachelor's degree in field of science, I worked in hospitals, clinics and pharmacies. Occasionally, I did freelancing in event planning, marketing and promotions for several different companies across the island. So I was familiar with the field of marketing before starting.
       So far I've worked on three different campaigns with company. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel with the company to Chicago for a test market with a major health care company. This was only after one month of being with the business. Then the opportunity emerged for expansion to Nashville. I inquired about the necessary requirements to be part of the expansion. I was happy after being selected. Currently, my project is working with a major Telecommunications company called Xfinity in the event marketing department. Very positive experience so far. Bonus opportunities every month. Travel opportunities; domestic and international. Several opportunities to work with high achievers from other offices across the U.S. including vice presidents and regional directors.

    Cons

    There's limited phone usage while working. This was a bit different for me because I constantly needed to use my phone at my previous job.

    Advice to Management

    I hope the company will expand to Jamaica in the near future.

    I worked at CG International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NONE WHATSOEVER. Please stay away from this company as much as you possibly can!

    Cons

    long hours 10am-9pm? NO!!!, you're selling services people probably do not want, if you are not from the area, it could be dangerous (someone came to their door with a gun) sounds fun right? don't think so, PLUS, you're only getting paid by commissions, no base rate so if you don't get a sale, you don't get paid. it's certainly not guaranteed if you're even going to get a sale that day or that week.

    Advice to Management

    this is not the way to efficiently run a company

    I worked at CG International full-time

    Pros

    ZERO. Unless you like working for evil people who like stealing money from the innocent. This is not a disgruntled worker post-- I'm begging you, don't do it. Yes, 6 figures in a year is too good to be true.

    Cons

    This is what is referred to as a "pyramid scheme." It is now known as SJ Advertising. Please look up the pyramid model and DO NOT ACCEPT THIS OFFER.

    I have been working at CG International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm a recent graduate, I learned of this position while I interned at covanta Delaware county. I was a little hesitant start a new industry but after I met everyone I felt right at home. I found the atmosphere energetic and my collogues are quite motivating to be around. In Pennsylvania my project was designing the marketing program in a major company in the energy sector. It was a very demanding job but a great way to get started in the marketing field. I was skeptical about there being travel opportunities, until I applied for a transfer to a new branch in Nashville Tn, and I was exepted. Their are a lot of incentives here on a weekly basis ;vacation packages and sport tickets etc. That keeps the environment lively and the group motivated. My favorite thing about the company is my one-on-one time with the management to cover my day and my goals. The owner has an open door policy. I've never been in a environment where management was so approachable.

    Cons

    Depending on the project the hours can get pretty long. If you have pick up the kids from school the hours could be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Consider some days where the company closes early since we're have days when the company closes late

    Pros

    The part of the company that stands out the most is the high energy environment of the office and co-workers. When I first started I was quite nervous having never worked in the marketing field. I was quite impressed on how much they worked and trained me properly. The other part of the office that stands out is the collection of so many people from different backgrounds

    Cons

    One major draw back is the long morning commute everyday to the office. Also the lack of parking in the parking lot.

    Advice to Management

    Some advice would be to please keep a heavy focus on training, that really helped me when I was training.
