Travel to once-in-a-lifetime events. Management who truly respects work/life balance and value working smarter.

    Corporate ownership has had lackluster effect on certain benefits.

    I worked at Marketing Werks part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Super Easy to work with. My manager had a great personality, was laid back, and very professional. The work was a breeze, I was going to stores in my own city not Chicago where the company was located. They were Easy to reach by phone or text. The pay was good considering the type of work.

    Cons

    No face to face contact with manager.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. you guys were amazing.

    I worked at Marketing Werks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as an Engagement Manager for the Verizon Enhanced Communities. FIOS is a terrific product, especially the Gigabit Speed Connection. Alot of freedom to plan my schedule and activities.

    Cons

    Leadership is disorganized, lacks experience and understanding of navigating large organizational structure and its politics. The client is constantly breathing down the neck of management, forcing them into less than ideal scenarios that make it very difficult for EMS to sell.

    Too much competition in buildings that just got lit, with the client pushing too hard for penetration. Very hard to consistently sell because the residents get hammered from many sales channels.

    Your module may have many buildings where there is little likelihood of many sales.

    Only a few EMS are making money, the rest struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Watch for the excessive competition and do not hammer the residents. Spend more time in the field with your Engagement Managers.

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

    Pros

    Good work environment, training, management want you to succeed and are supportive. Freedom of schedule. Flexibility. Good compensation and benefits. 401k. Tablet and phone given to us by management. Jacket and shirts provided also.

    Cons

    Travel, other than distance to my properties the compensation should be worth it overall when taking into consideration the base salary plus commission. So you have to enjoy at times to travel to those properties.

    Advice to Management

    Mileage reimbursement program is needed. That would be a big help. Other than that, everything is good.

    Pros

    Nice office and casual attire. Young and fun culture. Good opportunity for entry level position with little to no experience. Will learn a lot for starting a career.

    Cons

    A lot of gossiping and no respect for hard work. Also no room to grow and low pay. A lot of negativity in the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Allow hard working employees to grow and move up in the company.

    I worked at Marketing Werks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to travel around the country for seven months and work at different types of events for my client. Built up driving miles.

    Cons

    Was on the road with homesick interns who could hack it on the road, but nevertheless were placed there. Even though most office staff have road experience (by force), it is not an acceptable tail by fire.
    A lot of complaints fell on deaf ears. If what is going on in the field isn't exactly like the PowerPoint, theupper management gets panicky.
    Also, being acquired by another company at the time of my employment.
    Morale was low due to frenetic pace and overwork.

    Advice to Management

    Most of you have not been on the road in years, and have inflexible attitudes toward problem solving.
