    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.

    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

    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...

    Pros

    Open communication between the team, HR, management and sales team is on point. I love the open door policy and options within the office for growth - redirection and development.

    Cons

    Project based work calls for long hours - but all worth it in the end

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

    Pros

    Chicago Marketing is one of the best in the nation when it comes down to results. The clients are always happy. Having Chicago Marketing as my platform has already opened several doors for me because of their track record - it puts me in a high position for credibility and professionalism. I owe a lot to the team and management of CMI, it was a great run and I am excited to see what the future holds for everyone that...

    Cons

    It is a lot of work - it is not a 9-5 kind of job if you want to see the kind of success that I did. For many, it is, but it is just a job in that sense and that is not what the business was built for. If you are looking for something that satisfies your need for growth and challenges - then this is the place to be. Get ready to level up!

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for entry level candidates

    Learn a lot of skills such as managing your time managing your attitude dealing with tough people communication skills how to be appealing to customers

    Cons

    Pay is low, won’t always get the guaranteed standing in a sams club for hours Won’t get paid overtime Trying to sell people either DirectTv or energy hours are not ideal work weekends They don’t understand sometimes people don’t want the product High turnover rate You are seen as a number not an employee Always hiring to replace you A monkey could probably do this job You’ll hear the same stories from management...

    Advice to Management

    Change the interview process so you can find the right people before they come to work so you won’t have such a high turner rate. Show more care for your employees, a happy employee works better.
