    I have been working at Source Marketing Direct full-time

    Pros

    There are multiple companies in the building, so I get to meet CEOs from different backgrounds and learn how they got to their role. All through hardwork.

    Cons

    There is no shortcut to getting good. It's practice and repetition.

    I have been working at Source Marketing Direct full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The main different between this company and other marketing companies, is the attention it gives to its team. I felt welcome, even as a potential candidate. The manager was nice and friendly, even after I got the role.

    Cons

    It is hardwork and we are expected to give 100%, because the leaders will give 100% back too.

      Pros

      None, the whole recruitment, interview and 8-5 work is a BIG con and waste of your personal time and money.

      Cons

      The whole job is a con and the number of fake reviews on this website is shocking!

      I have been working at Source Marketing Direct full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      I've now been in the business for 2 months now and it has completely given me a new outlook on life and helped me develop and change myself as a person. This amazing opportunity has given me the keys and tools to unlock parts of me what I already knew deep down. There's the greatest family feel to each office within the company only wanting you to succeed by completing the training course to management and potentially...

      Cons

      The downside to working in the business is the longer hours to what I was compared to and adjusting to that but the company has such high standards of each individual within the office and being such a fast paced programme they just want you to succeed as quickly as possible. The only other downside would be that you could be an outside event and the weather is against you but the goal isn't to be in field on events for...

      I have been working at Source Marketing Direct full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      I’ve been with Source marketing direct for 3 months now and I have learned more in these few months then I did in 5 years in my previous role. It has really helped me to develop to my full potential and also the training programme has personally empowered me so much to be a lot more confident and positive inspiring to others.

      Cons

      When I first started I struggled a little with the hours being long some days as I’ve never worked in a similar role before.

      Advice to Management

      To keep doing what you’re doing, I have personally gained so much from the training and coaching I got from the management team!

      I worked at Source Marketing Direct for less than a year

      Pros

      Worked alongside source for a period of time in 2014, was a great learning experience. My first day was challenging, learning a lot Sales mainly which suited me as I had little to no experience. Got to spend Time with one of their top trainers. They looked after me from the start. The skills i learnt at source has given me the confidence to set up my own business! Used the skills from source to make a success of myself!!

      Cons

      Had to break my comforts zone a lot! I enjoy working with clients that provide a service and they were mainly non profit clients at source Suited and booted was the dress code which got a bit boring. No Parking at office

      Advice to Management

      Keep training people!

      Pros

      I worked at Source Marketing Direct for a number of months. During my time here I learnt many skills that have developed me both professionally and personally. The great team there always looked to further my learning each day and have helped give me the tools necessary to now start my own business within the sales and marketing industry. If I were not for the commitment shown by CEO Hector Montalvo and all at Source...

      Cons

      My commute into London was an hour which during rush hour was a little bit of a challenge each day but one I would have to have made anyway due to my want to work in London.

      Advice to Management

      Keep inspiring young entrepreneurs the way you do. Without your guidance I would not be seeing the success I have in my own career! The regular seminars that you run have been very beneficial to all attendees and should continue long into the future.

      Pros

      I love the fact I get to wear a suit everyday! The environment that I have been working in for the last 8 months has helped me develop as a young, mature, independent individual. Throughout the ups, and downs both psychically, and emotionally I have learned a lot about myself. I have found an inner self belief, that has allowed me to progress quickly. This role has allowed me to take on more responsibility, such...

      Having to travel see different parts of London can sometimes be a pain with all the public transport problems with the underground and trains.
