    Pros

    You get an agency like feel and meet a wide variety of clients throughout the world.

    Cons

    Carlson Marketing has been dwindling down to almost nothing for the last 9 years. Carlson looses clients left and right resulting in layoffs and down sizing. The culture at Carlson Marketing is very harsh because everyone is very protective of their own job.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure their sales and pricing strategy to align current needs of potential clients. Basically they need to provide a pricing model that is competitve in the market place and able to pay the bills at CMW (and then some),

    Two people can destroy a huge company. New upper management fired the most talented and most experienced (older & higher salaried) in a classless and insulting manner, then claimed our work as their own.

    Too late.
