    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.

    Pros

    It has been a whirlwind. Yes it has ups and downs - My mom always told me to never say no to any new situation or opportunity. Chicago Marketing offered me an opportunity that I was scared of basically. I felt like it wasn't my cup of tea, in the end, it was exactly that and more. It is not my favorite kind of tea. The team is awesome. The work is fun. The pay is legit.

    Cons

    Ups and downs. Stressful at times. Challenging. Hard to understand and manage everything at once if you are new to industry.

    Advice to Management

    More training after initial 90 days

    Pros

    My experience at Chicago Marketing exceeded my expectations in every way. Almost immediately, two qualities of the company stuck out to me. The first is its culture and atmosphere. Employees come to work excited--everyone is self-motivated and encourages each other to be the best version of themselves every day. The second is the openness of the leaders/managers of the company. I felt comfortable approaching my manager...

    Cons

    The only negative that I can think of is that the hours are long; however, my coworkers and the job itself made it all worth it.
