associate producer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 19, 2016
There are always pros and cons in working in a marketing/advertising agency. The pros being a great work place and culture to offset the crazy, stressful work hours. However, IMG LIVE severely lacks a 'culture' and it's office space doesn't reflect that of a successful business. The creative department is a revolving door of talented people who quickly move on to the next best thing. My direct boss severely lacked the fortitude and knowledge to propel the department to the next level of success. Pay is adequate, and benefits are standard. If you're in desperate need of a job, then this place will be fine, but in five months you will be searching for a new gig.
SENIOR PRODUCER (Former Employee) – Norcross, GA – November 18, 2014
Fast paced and quickly growing. It's a great place to learn and get experience in the event marketing industry. Management is very smart and knows how to run a quickly growing company. Very versatile and offers multiple solution platforms for clients.
There is no typical day, which makes every day fun and exciting and a great learning experience, I would like to continue working with this company, but there are not many full time positions available.
Traffic Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 2, 2014
IMG Live was a great place to work. It was filled with fun, hardworking people. I began as an Associate Account Manager on the New Business team in 2010. I ended my time at IMG Live as their agency Traffic Manager. While working on the New Business team I spent a lot of time working with the VP of Creative. At the end of 2011 the company had grown large enough to need a Traffic Manager. The VP of Creative came to me and suggested that I take the job. He believed that my qualities would be a great fit for the job description. I researched the job description and decided it would be a great fit! As the first Traffic Manager of the agency I assisted the company in implementing its very first creative process. It was not an easy task because many were resistant to the change the company was going through. We successfully implement the process in both the New York and Atlanta office. I managed the schedule of a team of six: 4 graphic designers, a video producer, and a 3-D rendering specialist. The clients my team and I spent most of the time designing for were: DirecTV, Coca Cola Recycling, KIA, Starwood Hotels, RBC, Norton, and USAA. I left IMG Live in May of 2013 for an opportunity that would give me a little more freedom to work more closely with the clients.
Call Center Ambassador (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 10, 2014
Each day I get to coach and develop talented individuals to enhance their customer's experience through programming sales. I educate them through individual and group coaching and training, effective feedback and listening skills. I've learned that each individual has a talent, you just need to find it and help them develop it on their own. My co-workers are incredible and supporting. It's more like family than work each day. The hardest part of the job is balancing the many daily activities. Organization and time management help you overcome this obstacle very quickly. There's also asking for ideas from the team. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people and watching them grow and develop each day.
Small company with family atmosphere, additional commission when sales goals are exceeded
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Pueblo, CO – July 5, 2013
Having to report to 6 different "managers" in a day makes it hard to get any real work done. In addition the managers were un-experienced and ineffective. The company developed a set of core values and even had training on them, then promptly tossed them out the door once we were back in the field. While openings for management and assistant management were always opening up the company refused to promote anyone from the field to the corporate office. Leaving new management clueless about what it was we did while making a firm statement that the field reps were expendable. They continued to sell this point by replacing good reps on a regular base.

Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 26, 2013
Management cares and rewards you for strong work ethic and performance. Great exposure to sports marketing arena. I enjoyed the people that I met working with the company, they were highly intelligent and fun. From my perspective the only con would be that upward mobility seemed challenging.
Awesome company that generates fun and excitement in the work place.
Call Center Ambassador/Marketing Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA, I actually work out of Ogden Utah – December 20, 2012
In a typical day, I can be assured of interacting with inbound phone agents trying to upgrade customers on entertainment packages. My job is to motivate and captivate the attention of the agents. This helps the company have engaged, enthusicastic employees. I generally give away hundreds of dollars a week in cash and prizes. The most enjoyable part of my job is making people happy by providing them the recognition they deserve. The hardest part of my job is not having any real authority with the call center, I must get my results strictly from my abilities to influence others to do what I need them to do.
i have the autonomy to do what i need to do without asking permission first.
i work as a third party within a third party supporting a third party.
