    I have been working at Imminent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I've overall been really impressed at how Imminent has handled everything during the quarantine. For most of us there hasn't been a ton of online work during this quarantine so we have had an actual break, but I feel really good about how that shows who people really are. It's showed me that a lot of the leadership really cares. They had had optional personal and professional development training sessions every day, where if you want to learn more about yourself or your career, you can hop on a video conference and further educate yourself. We have all participated in a book club during this time and made it through three different business books. And we have had regular happy hours where at first I thought they were going to be kind of boring but literally everyone has gotten together and played drinking games and honestly I thought it was so fun. It just really seems like even when everything is on pause they genuinely want to support.

    Cons

    When we're all up and running, it's a role where you must be flexible. I guess that's par for the course for the events industry, but I think that's something to note. I think you also have to be willing to do every role, including entry level. They are 100% promotion from within so if you are looking for management right off the bat and not looking to learn what's under that, this wouldn't be for you.

    "Misleading! This is a SALES JOB"

    I worked at Imminent full-time

    Pros

    Everyone was nice and positive, I enjoyed the book club.

    Cons

    I applied for an event coordinator position. However, my first day of training turned out to be completely different from the job description. The pay I find out was not what I was told during my interview. I was really disappointed to find out this was in-fact an entry level sales job no more no less. They were not forthcoming about the job description period. I wasted a lot of time thinking I’m going in to a managers position when reality it will take approximately a year or so while getting paid below minimum wage plus commissions.

    I wish you had worked here for more than two hours so that we could get further than morning 1 office training. Respectfully, we think it’s impossible to accurately judge a full career oriented position after two hours of work. During the interview we talked about how we would teach someone sales and marketing for the first four weeks of training an event coordinator, so that everyone is prepared for that - we literally call it “entry level” - so we’re a bit confused at the confusion! Furthermore, it’s actually illegal to pay anyone under minimum wage, and we actually do third party payroll audits on our firm as documentation that we can fully stand on our payroll process and the integrity behind it. I am glad you took a lot away from the book club, I enjoyed your participation in it and hearing about your family! I wish you luck in your next management position.

    Pros

    easy job. fun culture. networking opportunities.

    Cons

    A lot of lies told. They promise their employees a lot but mis inform them and abuse their employees time, money, and trust. Super long work hours, little promotion.

    I worked at Imminent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Kim Paul and Aaron Kennebrew were inspirational, motivating, and amazing mentors. I loved every lesson they had to teach and truly believe I came out a better woman for having been a part of their management in training program. The opportunity is amazing but unfortunately did not match with my personal and professional goals. The professional development I received there was unmatched and will greatly influence how I conduct myself in all my future career endeavors.

    Cons

    (Not so much a Con as a reality) This is a very rigorous program. The payout is incredible for time spent but a lot of time has to be spent.

    I have been working at Imminent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of these reviews are CRAZY!!! This company has provided me with many opportunities, not only to succeed, but also to learn greater leadership skills and business strategies. It is one of the only jobs in which I have truly been able to advance at a pace that I’ve set for myself. Hard work and perseverance is the name of the game in this industry, and unfortunately many other reviews here reflect a lack of both. Imminent is a firm that makes you push your personal and professional growth, and I couldn’t be more grateful to work in such a supporting and uplifting environment. Business is our sport you can’t fault us for that

    Cons

    I guess some people think seeing a beautiful baby is a con!

    I have been working at Imminent

    Pros

    You learn a ton You have a huge support system You make friends You work in a fun environment You have really good communication with your boss You participate in team activities You get to travel and they pay for everything

    Cons

    If you had a bad attitude before, you will have a bad attitude here. Some of these reviews - are you serious? You’re upset that the owner brought her baby to the office? What are you a baby hater?! They’re so one sided, I just have to say - if you find the negative in every situation before you worked here, guess what you’ll find the negative in every situation here too! I put “you have no idea” because if you read Glassdoor you really do have no idea. My recommendation is to check is out for yourself. I’m glad I did.

    I worked at Imminent full-time

    Pros

    Coming in I didn't have a lot of experience just what I learned from school. I was able to get hands on training and didn't feel any negative pressure so I grew at my own pace. My communication and time management improved tremendously. The managers there actually wanted to see you get better verses being afraid that I would take their jobs. I built actual relationships with everyone there rather than just them being my co-workers. I had a lot of fun when I worked here.

    Cons

    It's an investment just like any other career is.

    I have been working at Imminent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Honestly, the investment that this company makes into it's people is just amazing. I have worked at a lot of places over the years, but I have never had a group of people who were so open and available to help me in times of need. The culture of growth of positivity are what initially drew me to this company and it is also what has kept me here. I have seen more professional growth in my short time here than I did in the last 5 years of my career. My own efforts and results are being rewarded and I'm very excited to see what I can accomplish here with this team!

    Cons

    Hard work here = growth. It's not about who you know or how long you have been here. If you want to grow you can, but don't expect it if you aren't willing to have some work ethic and accountability!

    I have been working at Imminent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I look at the three core values before I started and I was really crossing my fingers that they would actually follow through. I can honestly say that Imminent genuinely did. I ask tons of questions when I start places and I feel like I was communicated with with a lot of transparency, definitely agree with fun environment, and am genuinely experiencing a lot of growth 8 weeks in. And honestly, I respect the owner more than I’ve ever respected any other boss I’ve ever had in my life. Which is super important to me!!

    Cons

    Literally just that how much I respect the people who work here is showing me how awful the environments I’ve worked in before are

    I have been working at Imminent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I absolutely love my job - I was so worried about training, being someone who was making a career change, and I completely was put at ease when I worked with my trainer the first few days. She’s so positive, she’s so welcoming towards any questions, she even preempted so many things before I can even ask them. Good team, good culture!

    Cons

    You should work hard and be self managed. If you’re not self managed I don’t know what to tell you.
