    I have been working at marcus evans full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Marcus Evans has given the opportunity to truly hone my sales skills. They really take the time to welcome you into the company and train you step by step on mastering the sales process. What I enjoyed most about the job was the encouragement I received from upper management all the way up to the CEO, which truly showed you they cared. The work/life balance is incredible as its a very work hard play hard attitude. The company has sponsored happy hours were you get to interact with upper management at a more informal setting. One the best perks of the travel opportunities they provide to travel across North America and to HQ in London. Great for anyone looking to hone their management experience and grow within a company.

    Cons

    Technology could use some updating but beside that very little cons.

    I worked at marcus evans full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The other producers, marketing and sales and summits were wonderful, and I really enjoyed getting to know them.

    I made some life-long friends as well as business contacts but none of that is contingent upon meG. I’d say those are more personal skills which I absolutely did not learn at marcus evans group.

    Cons

    Unattainable KPIs, bonus structures are terrible and hardly achieved when tied to production; and the other options for bonuses are completely tied to sales and sponsorship MAKING a sale which only happens on select events, culture of fear and greed, low wages for the amount of work responsible for turning over, and in the end treated like a number which never mattered.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps if trying to save money cut dead weight, and not those who are working their tails off to make reputable events.

    Nothing, I would not even recommend this to aliens invading the planet

    Cons

    This place is the worst place I have ever had the displeasure of working at.
    Management is horrible, absolutely horrid to the employees.

    I worked at marcus evans full-time

    Pros

    They shutdown for the holidays.

    Cons

    I have 11 years of Sales Experience (3 of them were as a Sales Manager.

    I was offered the position and expected to give less than a days notice to my employer, I declined. The VP of Sales then extended the offer for another 3 weeks.

    I accepted it, in training on Day 3 we were provided a training manual with typos and a script with typos and misleading information to the prospects we were to cold call. I left my job not being informed about the unethical practices. After one week of having this script. I was provided another one this one was WORST! It outright lies to prospects and have over 7 typos and run on sentences. I mentioned these concerns to my manager (whom I happen to have 5 years more Sales experience then. Within 4 days I was terminated, he says I wasn't "progressing".

    Please pay attentio: these people have NO care or concern for other humanbeings lives. They did this to me within 2 weeks. And I wasn't even given the opportunity to speak with one single client. They didn't think twice about my life and or my holiday with going home to see my family or any thing humane.

    I've never been treated with such less regard and I hope this doesn't happen to anyone ELSE!

    Cons

    Stone age slow computers

    If you're desperate for a gig, a friendly staff may keep your sanity. Anyone who stays is obviously drinking the cool aid. The smart ones milked it for the little it's worth and left ASAP!
