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

    Pros

    Great training and great management that REALLY HELP you to succeed! The product is great and the Company has a good reputation; they NEVER LIED to me about KPIs or their expectations!

    Cons

    I found the research of own leads challenging and difficult! They have only a few computers on which researching leads can be done, and I think they should consider purchasing lists for sales reps.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate technology like SalesForce and computers and offer weekends to do research at their offices! Show people how to do better and more research too! You’re not patient with teaching research, and one manager ALONE is just not good with people, and I worked for him!

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

    Pros

    Exposure to C level executives (it looks really nice on your resume) sales training, location and the people. For some reason this company attracts amazing people, really.

    Cons

    The lowest base salary, not even 25K. No personal computers, no benefits, only 10 days of vacation paid..
    This job is good if you are building your resume and you don't need the money badly, otherwise, it can be painful being here.

    Advice to Management

    I would actually say that management is good. The company just doesn't want to invest. Inside the office is like being in a museum-everything is old.

    Pros

    none, none, none, none, none

    Cons

    everything, no computer, horrible work environment

    Advice to Management

    Get computers for your staff. You can't expect people to do research and reach the correct customers by only allowing them an hour every other day to do research on the 4 communal computers in the office.
    Horrible culture within the organization, to the point where a shower after work could not wash off the bad smell of the office.

    Pros

    Great location. That is it!!

    Cons

    Everything and everyone! You are expected to make over 100 cold calls a day! Only thing on your desk is a phone. This place is a joke. Stay far away and make a better career move! All the positive reviews here are complete jokes and lies. Do not fall for it. I wouldn’t be surprised if it is HR writing it themselves.

    I worked at marcus evans full-time

    Pros

    - Location: Great Location, being downtown
    - They try to make it fun with parties on holiday, which were always really fun
    - If you can make the sales then the pay is not bad
    - Good Training Program
    - Good for a recent Graduate
    - If telemarketing and cold calling is all you want to do then go for it

    Cons

    - Intensely high turnover
    - Low, low base. If you are looking to stay here and live on your own you have to make the sales
    - They are a little sneaky with their contracts, what they don't tell you is that you are on a 'contract' until you make your first sale
    - They normally have a cap of 3 months, then if you don't make a sale they are most likely to let you go
    - Sales methods depending on department are not the most truthful in ethical in my opinion
    - Everyday is cold calling, success is based on numbers

    Advice to Management

    - The games really helped
    - Be more honest about the contract and let the employee have more time to read over it.
