      Great place to work!

      Apr 5, 2021 - Marketing Coordinator/Account Executive in Ipswich, MA

      Pros

      - The people are fantastic! - Management, including Senior and C-Level, tend to come from within, and know the industry and its demands. Management is diverse, and tends to come from aptitude and applicable skills, rather than nepotism, from what I've seen. - Established name in the industry with strong products. - Marketing was efficient, effective, and a fun place to be. Very little, if any, drama. - Management is very communicative, open, inclusive, and transparent. Regular communications from top levels, giving a top-down status on important stuff. - If you're good at sales, you can make some good money.

      Cons

      - For AE's, commissions can come in waves, and sometimes not at all. Save instead of splurge. - As AE's tend to be an entry level position, it tends to be a good test for whether or not someone is cut out for sales. They *do* watch your sales numbers, and will sample calls to go over strategies with you, if you aren't doing well. But those who may not do well come and go, or get shuffled around, so keeping some names with sales areas straight can be hard. - Departments that don't commonly interact with yours seem a million miles away, despite being in the same building. - Very large, international company with multiple offices around the globe, so there are a lot of people to know, depending on your job.

      People are treated as people, the company culture is inclusive and appreciative. There are many business units under the EBSCO umbrella, and therefore many opportunities for networking.

      Cons

      In the smaller subsidiaries, it can be difficult to advance.
