    I have been working at GMR Marketing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been at GMR since 2015 and finally feel like I have found my place. The culture of the company is what keeps me around. I am a firm believer that life is what you make of it and although the work isn’t easy (that would be boring anyways) the people I’m surrounded by make it worth it. My manager challenges me and makes me feel like I am contributing to something pretty amazing. Even my bad days aren’t all that bad. I have noticed the employees who haven’t worked in other environments/cultures to see how other companies operate are typically the “unhappy” ones and more often than not see them want to come back when they see the grass isn’t greener. Not everyday is rainbows and butterflies but I love GMR and am excited for the future.

    Cons

    Although progress seems to have been made, inconsistencies amongst leaders and are noticed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating the agency as a whole, inclusive of the people. As we innovate the brand, the product, the services, etc remember the people too. The future looks bright!

    I worked at GMR Marketing full-time

    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 (More than a year)

    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.
