      Pros

      People were nice. They seemed to care about you when you were at events.

      Cons

      They could put you on an event that lasted 12 hours, but only allow you to work 29 hours in total. If your shift went over the 29 per week because you had to work a few small events in the beginning of the week, then you would be flagged by corporate for going over hours. The company has no money. Theres no chance for a raise or even for a promotion. I was laid off from COVID. I was never told I was laid off though. I couldn't access my email and I had to call my boss who THEN told me I was after I asked.

      High expectations that are not realistic to succeed

      Feb 2, 2021 - Account Executive in Cedar Rapids, IA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Building new relationships with clients and having access to the best marketing products and solutions out there

      Cons

      The expectations they have for good employees, is driving good employees to not want to work for this company. Corporate tries to implement a “you matter” mantra. But it’s very clear that it’s just a saying, and that’s it. They expect an account executive to sell as many website sales as a website outsider seller in a month. Account executives are accountable for generating broadcast, amped, ignite and website sales. While an outside seller only has to focus on 1 area: TSI (websites). The expectations for an AE sales rep are not humanly possible to excel in every category. But it’s expected. Why not play to a sellers strength - instead of forcing them to focus on selling certain products that don’t generate enough money to want a seller to spend time selling it. However, without selling the product you get docked commission. It’s just not right. The mantra that fits this company better is “the bottom line matters.” Because they don’t care about employees. They know they can burn employees out to replace them with new blood and just keep recreating the wheel over and over again.

      Not a place for introverts

      Apr 5, 2021 - Solutions Specialist 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Decent work from home opportunities, intelligent small teams clustered throughout the organization, some good live events and stations under the umbrella.

      Cons

      Super male dominated environment, upper management micro managed heavily and lacked diversity, the organization felt very clicky at times. Only extroverts seem to be acknowledged for their “hard” work. If you are the smart quiet type that gets stuff done but hates to brag and stroke egos you will be extremely under-appreciated.
