Sales ex (Former Employee) – Charleston – January 6, 2015
I worked for this company for over two years. Can be a great place to work when they have the right players. Have a great product easy to sell. The only down falls were a real disconnect with upper management or corp. instead of support they work against you most of the time, creating unwarranted stresses. What I'm trying to say is some people in the company think they can run it from far away. Like I said a real disconnect . Other than that and the fact that you don't make much money, it's a good place to work. Would be a great job for a lotto winner that's board or needs something to do.
Fast paced, stimulating environment with new and exciting challenges daily!
Regional Director of Marketing Operations (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC/New Orleans, LA – September 30, 2013
A typical day at work would consist producing and analyzing marketing reports daily/weekly/monthly, analyzing trends and performance as it relates to production and expenses; communicating these trends to marketing directors and executive leaders among the company. A core responsibility in Festiva Development Group's marketing department is the charge of being creative daily in an effort to grow each business unit. With creativity comes change so an additional part of this position includes analyzing and creating process and procedure in the work environment for continuity and organization. Working with Marketing Director's at each site on expense projections and budget creations that cater to their location and ensuring profitability and maintaining cost effective moves each step of the way!
The most challenging part of the job is the lack of communication in each department. When communication is delayed, or not happening it brings the businesses fly-wheel to a holt!
In this position I have learned some of the most important ingredients to success, which include effective communication, planning and being financially responsible every step of the way.
The most enjoyable part of this job is analyzing performance trends and expenses and helping other employees run their respective locations as financially sound and organized as possible.
The ability to make positive changes in the work place through new processes and procedures.
