    Pros

    Fun office culture, good work-life balance, great sales experience. Promotes internally- a lot of room for advancement within the company. Surrounded by fun, smart people from great schools

    Cons

    I felt that the position was somewhat mis-marketed. "Marketing Associate" as a title is a misnomer, and during the recruiting/interviewing process I did not feel that the difference between sales and marketing position was established.
