    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 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 less than a year

    Pros

    I was recently hired into the Chicago Marketing team as a District Sales Manager in training. I have spent the last five years working in the retail industry and love it but hate the limited options for continuous growth. Options are limited, and the time line wasn't quick enough for me and my growing family. From what I have learned about Chicago Marketing, the growth is performance based which is a game changer for...

    Cons

    Training can be challenging as there is always a lot going on in the office. New clients and training for new campaigns is constant - you have to be able to retain information and wear several hats with ease to enjoy the environment and work pace.

    Advice to Management

    More information about client's and promotions to take home (making training easier)

    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

    Chicago Marketing is one of the fastest growing marketing companies in the country. There are tons of advancement opportunities. What you put in is what you get out of the business. They promote solely from within based on performance and willingness as opposed to seniority. It's really about who wants to grow and how hard you're willing to work, and I think that's what separates them from other marketing companies.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, but anyone looking for a career for the long haul should expect to work long hours, and possibly work a day on the weekend.

    Chicago Marketing has done nothing but welcome me with open arms! Every one here is like family. I have been able to be myself and put in my work as well as not be afraid to ask questions or discuss concerns when need be.

    Cons

    Like every job, it comes with its share of stresses, but nothing that can’t be overcome to help motivate you in the long run.

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

    Pros

    There is a reason why someone like myself who's run a business before, chose Chicago Marketing to relaunch my career: Accountability. We had a plan and worked on it together. I was called out several times to step up to the person I promised I would be during the interview. They say that a lot but you made the promise in the interview and being middle aged from an era when we were trained to earn our keep it was more...

    Cons

    Perhaps have different classrooms for the different types of personalities. I had to be around delusional kids fresh out of college just complaining about everything... then again I guess that is part of "building the muscle" but I really think it will help.

    Advice to Management

    Separate class training for middle aged people from those entitled kids

    Great culture! I can tell everyone is invested into each others careers. I have only been with the company for a few weeks, but I am very impressed with the amount of help that I get from other staff and from the management team! I have received a lot of training and once I have mastered one thing, they throw something else at me to work on which I think is great! I have been constantly been learning and been challenged...
