    I have been working at Chicago Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Chicago marketing has great leadership. This was my first real job after graduating. I was nervous to step into the real world, but they made the transition very easy. Everyone works in small groups with about four other account managers working on the same account. My corporate trainer was very hands on and showed me the ropes before expecting me to do the job myself.

    Cons

    I live downtown Chicago so the traffic in the morning getting out to Downers Grove is rough some days. Thankfully, if I'm working an event or have a presentation they put me as close as they can to where I live.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at Chicago Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Chicago Marketing is bare none one of the most upbeat organizations I have ever worked with. They use cutting edge technologies, work with high end clients, expect the absolute best from their employees (nothing less) and cross train for growth internally. The set up and business structure is respectable. The CEO, Cline, has a specific way of connecting with each employee in one or another which is not common for such...

    Cons

    As mentioned above, the company offers amazing results for their clients which in return means that nothing but the best is expected by the employees here - it can be a high pressure environment at times with deadlines and standards so I have seen a few people crack under pressure and resign. Not that it is negative, but they could not perform as well as needed.

    Advice to Management

    More time off for traveling, community service, etc.

    I have been working at Chicago Marketing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been with Chicago Marketing for a little over three years now. I started as a part time intern while I was attending school. It took a few months for me to really grasp the depth of this Chicago Marketing and all they do. I am 100% invested in my role and in the growth of our company and I love being able to work with word class companies. Chicago Marketing is known everywhere for their training for a reason. I...

    I have been working at Chicago Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    We are just awesome, crushing the game and having fun! I love this place. no excessive work hours. The managers work with you and even help you get set up. Meetings are great.!!!

    Cons

    None at this time but looking at some on here, it is clear that some people do not feel comfortable with speaking directly to management. If they did, some opinions would be different.

    Advice to Management

    Keep reminding everyone the importance of the open door policy. People may leave when they feel they do not have support and that is solved with a conversation. I love it here

    I worked at Chicago Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Cool people, good opportunity to make money and become a manager. It's nice that you can work anywhere in the country if you choose to move or transfer.

    Cons

    I hated my boss. He had great intentions, but was the worst at effectively managing people and relationships. He also used his best reps to make sales before promoting them, but keeping their best reps for himself.

    Advice to Management

    Take a social course on interacting with others in a high-pressure environment. Too much bossing around with little to no positive feedback.
