"I have worked for ICM Marketing for years and it is a great career choice!"

Pros

Ideal corporate marketing is an inside sale position. After reading the previous reviews it seems as though some of the former employees clearly weren't cut out for a sales job. I have worked here for several years and if you put in effort and work at reaching your goals you will be rewarded! There are quarterly sales trips rewarded to the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, etc. there are bonuses and a commission structure in which you can make a lot of money! These reviews are from people who wanted a paycheck handed to them and didn't have the drive to succeed and grow within a great company!

Cons

Some employees want a paycheck handed to them without putting in the effort and hard work that is expected at any job let alone a sales position.

Advice to Management

Keep it up, the hard working, sales driven, career focused employees will continue to bring in money and exceed the sales goals!

    I have been working at Ideal Corporate Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Like any sales you can make good money.

    Cons

    The sales floor is dead quiet, The training is basically a joke with everyone telling you different things that contradict each other. The sales team is filled with ex bunk mortgage and used car sales types that couldn't close a door let alone a real complex sales situation. The top sales guy is a joke but walks around like he's God and thinks 800k in sales is a big deal.

    The service they sell is actually a gimmick involving ticket packages. It shows very little confidence in the strength of their publications and they preach NOT TO USE AN ROI PITCH. Not a good sign. If you focus on long term goals you can make money but chances are they won't give you the time in which case you'll scrounge around selling tiny ads to merchant businesses and the get disciplined for not making enough money

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse. Motivate your sales staff in a positive way and focus on long term success with bigger deals.

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

    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.
