    I worked at Elite Marketing Interactions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is a fun team environment, and everyone has a shared experience of success. There is not a lot of competition to get ahead, but that could be because they rarely promote!

    Cons

    Pay is below what competitors offer. It is hard to get an pay increase because the companies various endeavors are not completely profitable. Trying to win new business takes precedent over continuing good relationships with current clients. Impossible goals are thrown at you, and you are stressed to reach them. However, when you fail no one is surprised and yet there are still not a lot of viable solutions from management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what your employees want, and communicate to them more effectively why you cannot offer flexible work schedule, a raise, ect. Also, for upper management, please get to know what your employees do. It is embarrassing to everyone involved when management has to ask again and again what someone is working on.

    I worked at Elite Marketing Interactions part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working for the company.

    Cons

    When I initially began employment with Elite, my district was sorely understaffed and therefore, unorganized. Before I left the company, a new District Manager and Assistant DM were hired. The two of them helped turn our district around. I liked working as an event coordinator. It was a long haul getting to that position due to poor management. I was doing the work long before I received the promotion and pay. Unfortunately, I was burned out before significant changes were made.

    I have been working at Elite Marketing Interactions (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interactions has a large office with many likable people working there. Coffee is always on the pot and it's not bad either.

    Cons

    It's not uncommon for employees to be let go without notice. Many positions lack necessary training. Additional responsibilities are often added to your plate without prior consulting. Pay is also subpar.

    Advice to Management

    Be forthright about job duties. Ensure the proper trainings are in place for new employees. Provide decent pay that is fair and motivates employees to increase productivity.

    I worked at Elite Marketing Interactions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun environment in the field. Allowed managers to work from a home-based office. Standard benefits package for full-time employees.

    Cons

    Salary was very low compared to the responsibilities and level of execution demanded of the position. Very little recognition afforded to the field staff. Upper management was very hesitant to promote from within with resulted in very high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on training and development at all levels. Evaluate employees in a consistent manner that focuses on KPI's and results and not on who is just kissing @$$.
