    I have been working at GMR Marketing full-time for more than 4 years

    GMR is a global agency and the ability to work with global brands. Throughout the agency you work with individuals who strive to deliver innovative experiences for brands to reach a targeted audience. The events and experiences I've witnessed since arriving are truly impressive and inspiring. If you're looking to think big and deliver even bigger, this is a great place.

    Cons

    No down side during my employment so far.

      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at GMR Marketing full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I have just started working at GMR. So far, everyone has been very welcoming and enjoyable to interact with. As a designer, equipment is important. I have been provided a high capacity computer with plenty of accessories and all of the must-have apps. The New Berlin location has awesome workspaces and the coffee machines look pretty sweet (although I have not gotten to try them out yet).

      Cons

      None that I can currently think of.

        Pros

        People are great, good support and solid teamwork.

        Cons

        Responsibilities vary greatly depending on what account role you hold. Pay not commensurate with role - company can easily take advantage of low pay/lots of work and travel...you can burn out and not feel appreciated or compensated or promoted fairly.

        I worked at GMR Marketing full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Great co-workers. Everyone really buys in to the culture.

        Cons

        Boys club. In the years I was there, every single person on my account that received a promotion was a guy. Funny thing was, no one seemed to notice except the women. Also, it become clear early on who are the "chosen ones". No room for advancement if you are not in the in-crowd. Management tends to use you and spit you out.

        Advice to Management

        Be more genuine.
