    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.
