    I worked at Do It Outdoors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Travelling is the best perk of all, meet new people. Minimal supervision while on campaigns.

    Cons

    OMT is less than cooperative. They treat their drivers like little kids, don't really take into consideration when bad things happen over the road. They only care about the money, not the driver. Trucks aren't properly maintained, and don't care for your opinion about it. They put you in hotels with bedbugs, and will scold you if you complain to them. Ovetall, don't waist your time working for them, your experience will not be pleasant.

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate to the driver's needs. Don't use your power of authority to talk down to drivers, they are not kids, show some respect! Train your lead drivers to have more respect and patience when a problem arises.

    Note to the CEO AND COO, you maybe owners of this company, but you are no better thsn the driver. If it wasn't for them, your business would tank!! Doesn't hurt for you to reach out to them and see how they are!

    I worked at Do It Outdoors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    do it outdoors receives exciting RFP that you *might* momentarily be included within the creative discussion. Large office space

    Cons

    There is ZERO creative flow. The Experiential Marketing Management is not invested in the position which affects employee moral. Ownership is passive yet judgmental and are certainly not willing to support anything but sales efforts within the company. Furthermore, the two owners are continually at odds with each other.

    Clients receive sub-par marketing efforts as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the people that work for you. Increase salaries above 30K as a standard, even that sounds awful.

    Pros

    Advertising is a fun industry to work in, and ad agencies are a fun group of businesses to work with. As a remote employee, you have some freedom to run your area as you see fit which is appealing.

    Cons

    Management is at odds with each other and there is no clear cut directive from the home office to sales people in the field. They tried to grow the business too quickly and it is now coming back to hurt them and their capital operations. Commissions got cut twice while I was there to the point of not being able to make ends meat. I think they used to be a great, forward thinking company, but they have gone downhill in the slumping economy. All of this is evidenced by the fact that they have had multiple layoffs over the past six months and are now down to a skeleton crew.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get along with each other and get on the same page. The in-fighting has to stop in order for the company to grow and have ONE objective.
