    I have been working at GMR Marketing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    GMR Marketing has been great so far. They have great management and truly want you to succeed. GMR pushes me to become better in my career while also making sure everyone enjoys what they're doing. It's definitely a work hard, play hard office. Everyone is so friendly and there's always a fun activity to take part in.

    Cons

    I haven't seen any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

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

    Pros

    Has the type of culture and innovative practices most companies only talk about. It's all about fit. If you like fast pace, innovation, big challenge and always pushing for better, you'll love it. This place is so cutting edge it's a blast!

    Cons

    Again, it's all about fit. Before coming here I read all the reviews - both positive and negative. Now after being here for a while, I can see that those negative reviews are probably coming from people who weren't very good in their jobs and that's probably because they couldn't handle the fast pace or constant desire for excellence. This is not a great place to work if you're not very talented and those types of people don't like it much.

    Advice to Management

    Hire carefully. As evidenced by some of these reviews, those you hire who don't succeed, leave the company and say bad things. There are a ton of people who have been here a long time and love it, but those usually aren't the people who are posting reviews!

    I have been working at GMR Marketing part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Support, the hours, pay rate, everything was awesome!! They want to make sure you really understand the brand and also want to hear your thoughts ( hence the rally calls)

    Cons

    I was working the LG sidekick promotion... I just wish it would have lasted longer or I was put in a destination that would have heavy traffic.

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

    Pros

    The culture is awesome at GMR, from the casual dress and dog days to the happy hours and open concept office. They are in a great niche of the industry and are skilled in pulling it all off.

    Cons

    Team management and the way that VPs and SVPs are allowed to act given their "tenure" is shocking. From personally degrading staff with vulgar language, to pushing their own agendas, senior management and HR turn a blind eye.
    Unequal treatment of employees and serious lack of compensation increases are also negatives.

    Advice to Management

    Control your staff.

    I have been working at GMR Marketing part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co workers and ability to travel

    Cons

    Long list,
    Management wants to with hold information
    corporate staff are far to young and make reckless judgement calls.
    Hire and fire staff constantly

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring interns every year just to replace interns, listen to field staff more. Value staff that want to be there instead of worrying about year end bonus.
