    I worked at Source Marketing Direct full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked at Source Marketing Direct in Borough for one and a half year’s between 2015-17. For anyone who’s thinking of applying, it gives you great sales training and a motivation that I personally was severely lacking before I joined. My role with Source significantly increased my confidence in dealing with people. I am an introvert by nature and they helped me come out of my shell. They also train people to understand...

    Cons

    The cons for me came down to personal issues. I did not like living in London. The air is polluted and the commute for me became too much in the end. I ended up switching careers to a more relaxed work/life balance with my partner.

    Advice to Management

    Consider opening an office in the countryside! But seriously, keep doing what you're doing and maybe extending the good training structure to incorporate social media best practice as well as it is very offline, Face to face focused for the clients. Digital is the future!

    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!

    Pros

    I've been working for Source Marketing Direct for 3 months now. The resources, mentoring and training available has been so valuable to my professional and personal growth. I have already achieved great things in this business thanks to the support and dedication of Hector Montalvo and other upper management. I see more value in what I have learnt with this company about business management in 3 months than I gained from...

    With long hours it can be tough to manage social life outside of work but the social environment within the company takes care of that.

    Pros

    I worked with Source Marketing Direct from 2008 to 2010. I was there at a time when the company was growing in the UK and can honestly say, the company is outstanding.

    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.

    With only a few jobs under my belt, working with Source Marketing Direct has definitely been an eye opener. It has made me so much more focused on what my goals are in my professional life, and working with them has taught me so much! Everyone is really friendly, and really ambitious!
