      Not the best place to work if you're new to sales

      Pros

      - Great Learning Experience - Friendly work environment - Tons of opportunity Listen, if you're just getting into sales or were like me and got this job right out of college, you are going to learn a ton. Marcus Evans training takes a huge amount of time in pitch development, lead research, and getting comfortable on the phones. You will gain vital sale skills that will help you be successful in any sales/business development role in the future. Additionally, you gain so much knowledge from various industries like Healthcare, Employee Benefits, HR, Petrol, etc. Within your first 3 months your manager and other mentor figures will take time to answer any questions to try to help you improve. They firmly believe in learning on the job which can be a double edge sword. Additional perks include networking and traveling opportunities

      Cons

      - 24/7 Grind - Poor work/life balance - Pay structure - Employee Support/Resources Like I said previously, they firmly believe in learning on the job which is both a great thing and a bad thing. Marcus Evans does not provide any type of resources to help with the lead research aside from some public platforms like Linkedin, Crunchbase, and 1 hour of Zoom-info a day. The rest is on you. You're expected to gather 100 new leads, send out 100+ emails, and have a minimum of 7+ outgoing calls a day - completely manually, which takes up a huge chunk of your time and completely inefficient. As stated previously, the managers really try to make the onboarding and training great for new hires. The issue is, the managers are also focused on hitting their own target goals and are managing a large group of people, so often times things get overlooked and you're not given the best tools and support to succeed. Their knowledge of tech is limited so the email platform is ancient and their knowledge of G-suite is very low, which makes streamlining communication rather difficult. In terms of pay structure; when you're first hired you start at part-time which means no benefits. If you hit their target goals within 3 months you will then be switched over to full time but still won't receive benefits till after 6 months of working. With your first 3 months they pay you a flat rate of $1500 a month which isn't even minimum wage. This is where the high risk high reward comes in, because if you DO succeed in landing sales you receive 5% of commission (typically 10% if you're full time but 5% while training). As a new hire getting the hang of things, you're probably not going to be making alot of sales so the $1500 base pay is extremely low. The lack of support and resources create a 24/7 grind work culture. If you don't spend extra hours or if you're not an exceptional employee at the get go, you WILL struggle to keep up. If you don't hit your targets within the first 3 months they will let you go because you're not making the company money. You see on Glassdoor that they are always at a hiring surge because their employee turnover rate is so high.

      absolute worst place on the planet

      May 20, 2021 - Sales Executive in New York, NY

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Absolutely nothing. Perhaps the only pro is that you will know what is truly like at the bottom of the barrel.

      Cons

      This company is unethical at best, and just overall a huge scam. You lie, lie lie lie lie to every single prospect you call. Everything you say to the prospect is complete BS. You're squeezed into a packed office, shoulder to shoulder with other loud liars while using old, outdated computers with no CRM. Payroll is once a month and it's minimum wage if you don't make a sale. If you do make a sale, it's all based on a scam and lies and you shouldn't have that money. You con companies into wiring you 75k in 3 days by using shady sales tactics. You tell the prospect that you work with tons of their competitors (LIES), that one of them dropped out of an upcoming conference (LIES), and that our committee (COMMITTEE DOESN'T EXIST) needs to make a decision on a replacement in 72 hours (LIES - THERE IS NO COMMITTEE - IT DOES NOT EXIST). You can't even say "I'm calling from Marcus Evans" on the phone when you call. Instead, you have to say "I'm calling from the Legal Services Group" or "I'm calling from the Life Sciences Group". You then have to follow this rambling script that is full of lies. If you go off script, you're in deep trouble. Management is the worst. They're miserable, irritable, nasty and just overall terrible people. They've sold their souls to this god-awful company. They humiliate you if you're one minute late. You have scheduled lunch breaks, and you have to wear a suit and tie. Again, they lie to their customers. One of the managers sales tactics is to fake an awful British accent when calling to sound more important. They'll call a CEO's assistant on the phone, give a fake name and say that they are working on a huge deal that could be lucrative to that CEO and needs an urgent call back. The CEO calls back from their cell phone to a fake burner number. Now you have the CEO's number that you shouldn't have. They make these videos on YouTube talking about how "great" their job is. Again, it's a lie. I see how miserable those same people are in the office. These people suck, they are embarrassments to the sales profession and this company needs to be shut down.

      Pros

      None. The office is filthy the carpet patched up and moldy from water leaks.

      Cons

      Its just a scam over the telephone. You cold call from your own list youve researched and lie over the phone trying to get companies to send money for marketing events that do not take place.

      Excellent team to work with!

      Feb 15, 2021 - Sales Development Representative (SDR) in Chicago, IL

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      This is a good company for all sales professionals or freshers who really want to either learn or earn a good paycheck (read incentives) or do both. Team is supportive - however you have to have a sales knack, self discipline and motivation , if you want to earn a good paycheck. Work location ( Chicago office) is great too! HR is also proactive and understanding.

      Cons

      Don't provide laptops to work from home( during pandemic)- but you are free to use your own laptop or desktop.

      Pros

      After you leave, you will have stories to tell about how morally bankrupt this company is. But they have bathrooms you can. So you know, that is something.

      Cons

      It is great training if you want to sell used cars. The amount of deception, pressure, and out right lies sales is ENCOURAGED to do is just sad. The fact that they don't think sales folks need computers tells you how little they think of you. But hey - wear a tie...
