No opinion of CEO

I have been working at WDM Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Like a lot of staff here I have been working for WDMGroup for nearly 7 years. I started on the first run of the ladder and had the opportunity to work my way up to Senior Management and was also offered the opportunity to work overseas. A good positive atmosphere and for those that want to achieve and be successful they also offer uncapped commissions, can't grumble with that!

Cons

A complex Sales Process but everything offered is attainable. Finding the right staff can only make this company stronger...

Advice to Management

Continue to develop brands and recognition

    I worked at WDM Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed, young work environment, the line level employees always try to help each other. Occasionally there is some real positive energy and this helps with motivation and drive.

    Cons

    Constantly cycling through dead end leads or people who already have been offered the product at one point or another, for one. However the big problem is the product itself. These are not "leading industry publications" as I was told to refer to them as. If the businesses who are in that industry sector have never heard of them, why would they want to be featured and have their vendors buy ads? I was sick of feeling dishonest by quoting false circulation numbers that were fed to me by executives who couldn't possibly believe the numbers to be real.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the content of the product and the circulation. The digital brochure product is terrific, probably the most valuable part of the package, but if the rest of the magazine content was better, more fluid and marketed better, maybe the product would be worth selling. Until then, I think this is a failure waiting to happen, to be honest.
