I worked at Ideal Corporate Marketing full-time (More than a year)

Pros

You're indoors.
SOME of the people are cool.

Cons

Training? What training? A 3 ring binder. Make phone calls.
Managers do not manage anything. Make phone calls.
Computers and systems are XP ancient. Make phone calls.
Derogatory emails on your performance from someone you've never met. Make phone calls.
Your every move is recorded and logged. LITERALLY. Make phone calls.
Weekly meetings are nothing but a scream session and a whip. Make more phone calls.
Lose half the employees through firing or quitting every single month. Make phone calls.
Senior staff average about a year in tenure with company. Make phone calls.
If you don't like it, there's the door. Make phone calls.

Advice to Management

Your base will continue to dwindle as long as you focus on short term gain over long term growth.

    Pros

    This job teaches you how to sell. It gives you a thick skin, teaches you to think on your feet and how to ask for the sale. It is not an easy job but anything worth doing is a challenge.

    Cons

    The parent company can sometimes complicate operations. The CRM is homegrown and it's not perfect. A lot of whiners knock this place when in fact they didn't work. It's worth calling them to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your VP and your employees a little more.

    Pros

    Office right next to Penn station. Met a few of cool people. Good hours, and health insurance from day 1. That's about all tho. Oh and the manager will join you for happy hour 24/7!

    Cons

    While the manager is a great guy at heart, he does not know how to properly manage an office or how to really motivate his team. Motivation was yelling and cursing and threatening out jobs, and finally toward the end this skinny goofy pip squeak from the main office would come in and observe and spy. No actual sales training or manager offering TOs to help close a deal. The product itself is marginal at best. They tell you to mask outdated quality print with tickets, however what huge company doesn't already have a million connections to tickets??!!. Manager also plays favorites and office can get clicky and unprofessional

    Advice to Management

    Merge office with the parent office like there were rumors of doing before my employment ended mid summer. This way is will actually be managed in a functional way
