    Pros

    Having worked here for 9 years I can safely say it’s a great place to work. Really good support too, my manager is Christian Starling who like all the managers done all the sales roles successfully before so offers great support around products and the digital landscapes. Compared to lots of agencies out there if you’re thinking of coming here - we are super transparent with our data with customers whatever the results of their programmes.

    Cons

    Lots of small companies target us so it’s a very competitive industry. Targets are fair but by no means easy it’s not a job for the faint hearted but if your up for it you can do really well.

    Inconsistent management

    Pros

    Decent opportunity to make money even if you do not have much experience in sales. The training is good and the resources available are enough to give anyone a chance at success.

    Cons

    Extensive travel keeps you on the road quite a bit. The changes in the industry make it difficult to sell their core product, print advertising. The negative stigma in the market place of the company makes it difficult to overcome when calling on clients. The charge back system is unfair because it makes you not only a salesperson but get involved in collections as well which hurts relationships.
