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

    Pros

    Having only recently started with Chicago Marketing a few weeks back, I already find myself indebted to them for the excess of tried-and-true techniques and tools they've provided in order to reach success. Being somewhat new to the marketing industry, I came in a bit uncertain but the training is more in-depth and hands-on than any other company I've worked with and delivers results you can see each day. They also maintain...

    Cons

    Training can be pretty full-throttle, but it allows you to hit the ground running in a fast-paced and exciting work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

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

    Pros

    It has been a whirlwind. Yes it has ups and downs - My mom always told me to never say no to any new situation or opportunity. Chicago Marketing offered me an opportunity that I was scared of basically. I felt like it wasn't my cup of tea, in the end, it was exactly that and more. It is not my favorite kind of tea. The team is awesome. The work is fun. The pay is legit.

    Cons

    Ups and downs. Stressful at times. Challenging. Hard to understand and manage everything at once if you are new to industry.

    Advice to Management

    More training after initial 90 days

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

    Pros

    My experience at Chicago Marketing exceeded my expectations in every way. Almost immediately, two qualities of the company stuck out to me. The first is its culture and atmosphere. Employees come to work excited--everyone is self-motivated and encourages each other to be the best version of themselves every day. The second is the openness of the leaders/managers of the company. I felt comfortable approaching my manager...

    Cons

    The only negative that I can think of is that the hours are long; however, my coworkers and the job itself made it all worth it.

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

    Pros

    I am a small business owner in Chicago. I specialize in creating a better home life balance for busy families. With the help of the Chicago Marketing team, I was able to take home invaluable information and techniques to take my business to the next level. I worked with the team for about 6 months part time and loved every moment of it. Jacob and the team are awesome people to work with.

    Cons

    Their prices are steep for the client base - but the results speak for themselves. As a business owner I know the importance of spending money to make money and the clients the team works with have the ability to invest in CMI because the ROI is beyond worth it.

    Advice to Management

    More team building trips - not just team nights. Encourage the team to bond, grow and build together ;)

    Pros

    Great things happening at Chicago Marketing. As a sales professional with over a decade of experience, I highly recommend using Chicago Marketing for your professional needs. Whether sales, customer service, CRM, branding or analytics, the team never fails to bring the best results. I partnered with the team for 6 months during a product launch with my company; they trained our sales team, got us into the market place,...

    Cons

    It is fast paced, if you can't keep up with the grind, you will not enjoy your time there. I worked with their entire sales and branding team for 6 months and as a sales professional it was still challenging for me. It can be taxing, there is no sugar coating your results, your performance or your growth outside of the HR team (who are great, mind you). If you don't have what it takes, you will find out quickly - come...

    Advice to Management

    Coach newer individuals to ask more questions - it can be intimidating for new employees without a lot of experience to work with such a high caliber of talent. They need to be pushed out of their comfort zone a bit.

    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!

    Pros

    My time at Chicago Marketing has been interesting to say the least. I came in with a digital marketing background and even though I have worked in customer service before it is not my strongest skill. When I started here, I knew that it would not be content creation as the focus, but I did struggle for a few months with the growth into more of an inter-personal position. I now am 8 months into my position and have learned...
