    Pros

    iPromo sets the example for how a company should be run in today's business climate. Fun team to work with. Casual dress environment. Dog-friendly. Management is very forward thinking and takes the opinions of staff into consideration when making important decisions. We work in a modern, open floor plan office in the West Loop - 2 blocks from the El stop. The company is in rapid growth and expansion mode currently, with no sign of slowing down anytime soon. The work we do for our clients is stimulating, exciting, fun and rewarding! We take tremendous pride in the solution we provide to our clients. Great benefits, including health, dental, vision, 401k, and generous time off! Plus, the company provides bottomless snacks and coffee, a ping pong table, and a cozy employee lounge for a relaxing break. A great place to work that I look forward to coming to every day. Lastly, we are a very transparent team, which starts at the top with our founder/CEO who himself is as humble as they come! We are unstoppable, and the future looks extremely bright!

    Cons

    No cons to mention. I'm very proud to be a member of our dynamic team.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to solicit feedback. Continue being transparent. Continue to empower the team. And continue to leverage technology to our advantage.

    Pros

    Great place to learn and grow in your career! The team is excellent to work with and makes each day a pleasure. Nice, bright office. Hard-working people and fun environment. Clients-first approach with a high degree of focus on customer satisfaction. Great ideas and dedication towards future growth and expansion. Modern tools and platforms used. Location in west loop is a plus!

    Cons

    Room for more open communication between managers and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Company is on a growth trajectory, which is great. With a little more focus on employee growth and identifying individual development needs, the results could be even better.

    Pros

    This is a casual office atmosphere located in a great location in the west loop. The people there are extremely cool and down to earth. Everyone appears to be in a constant state of learning and expanding. Your success depends on you.

    Cons

    The work days can be long but they tend to work with you on that if you are a person that comes to work to work. Every company has its shortcomings, stabilizing and more training with the systems couldn't hurt.

    Advice to Management

    Remain open to suggestions and utilizing those suggestions, your employees will definitely feel involved and important if you do.

    Casual dress code. Young staff.

    Cons

    I worked at iPromo full-time

    Pros

    Nice environment, nice staff and a great CEO. No micromanagement you have you’re own space to work.

    Cons

    No structural training at all for sales reps. Management expects you to learn the sales tactics on your own. Some racism and a lot of favoritism. It’s Privately owned, so I guess that’s normal. But should not be happening.

    Advice to Management

    Have a well set up training session for few weeks. Don’t expect people coming from a diff way of selling (sales) to adapt to a brand new software that they’ve never used.

    You guys sell promotional products... this isn’t Shark Tank.
    Some management NEEDS to be re-trained.

    There have been significant improvements in the company over the last few months. The company is expanding and is continuing to grow and develop to it’s fullest potential. New management is driven and focused to develop a successful, talented team in a casual and fun environment.

    There was a rocky transition with the new CRM system that was implemented, but that is expected with system changes.
