Business Development Executive (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – March 22, 2017
Cold calling people all day long. That's what is all about. If the person is lucky enough to get a good manager you will learn a lot about sales and confidence. Don't expect high salaries or fast paced environment.
Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Madrid, IA – March 22, 2017
Never have i worked in such a terrible working environment. The business model is outdated and management is very week even though they believe they are the 'wolf of wall street'. I hated my time at marcus evans and wishes no one to be forced to do 140 cold calls a day and get yelled at if you are far from the tally. I learned absolutely nothing there except to lie on the phone to a poor secretary and managed to pull a month there before wanting to shoot myself. I don't believe this company will last much longer. Good day.
Sr. Project Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 17, 2017
A typical day at work is fun and fast paced. I learned how to pay attention to detail and research efficiently. Management was wonderful. They were very helpful. My co-workers were amazing. The hardest part of the job was the research of the latest updates in the DOD,gas and oil industry. The most enjoyable part of the job was the environment.
Corporate Accounts Sales Executive (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 27, 2016
Cold calling is probably one of the worse ways to sell people on a product, event, etc. They try to get you to do whatever it takes to get a CEO's phone number so you can sell them on a conference at a 5 star hotel.

Summits division at Marcus Evens Group is the cream of the crop,. So were making high call volumes all day trying to Get "C" level executives to buy face to face meeting with are partners in the medical field.
sales manager (Former Employee) – Chicago – November 5, 2015
I loved my co-workers and gained a great deal of knowledge working under them while closing accounts and keeping great relationships with my clients! We've had a great team which made my work so much more rewarding and interesting.
Companies like Marcus Evans are fantastic to work as long as there’s enough team building in place.
Some of the processes in place are very time consuming and frustrating at times.
SALES EXECUTIVE (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 1, 2015
Not enough support to go along with competitive salary and bonus structure. Uncapped commission allowed for higher earnings however outside of top performers who had been with company for 5+ years no one was earning over 35,000 - base salary unlivable.
sales executive (Former Employee) – London – March 5, 2014
They advertised this role as £28000 but then I found out they pay £650 a month. This is under the minimum wage therefore it is illegal. To cover this up they make your basic salary by adding whatever the commission you make. In the 1st month if you do not make more than £1090(which is minimum wage for month) they will pay you additional £440, but when you make a sale they will deduct £440 from you.
You are also required to research from home. This means that for the minimum wage you end up working 12-14 hours per day. They treat you as another sale or a commodity. They don't think you are human.
This is the worst place I have ever worked in my life. The worst thing is they do the same sales ticks to you in the hiring process that they would do to clients . In the example of salary it is like "Over promise, under diliver", the sales jargon.
Some people are nice and professional but would you work day and night for minimum wage if you have graduate? and do over 100 cold call per day?. I think working in KFC will give you more pleasure and money. If you are really desperate then go but most of the employee I spoke to say that they are also looking for a new place...
Key Sales Account Executive (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 13, 2014
I very difficult atmosphere to work in. Did not at all enjoy my experience. Run by stupid young, inexperienced young people. A no salary, high commission job, which I didn't mind. Long hours of tedious & boring work.
Sales Executive, Conferences Division (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 14, 2013
I learned more about myself than anything during my time at Marcus Evans. A typical day at work consisted of 8 hours of cold calling companies in hopes of peaking their interest to attend business conferences. All leads had to be generated by yourself during strict research hours where you had to share a small bank of computers with nearly the entire sales floor. With strict supervision (not in a good way), you had no choice but to spend hours at home generating your own leads. Co-workers were one thing that was good. Fun, young, relatable peers. Nice people but when you make your way through the smoke and mirrors, it is a telemarketing position in the most basic description.
Long lunch break, co-workers, location along Chicago River
Junior Account Executive (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 23, 2013
Pros – I was able to really develop my communication skills through engaging with Senior Level Executives. Learning about several industries and trends and key performance indicators in each of these industries. The Fast-paced culture, open-door policy with Management.
Cons –We were required to generate our own leads with no computer on your desk, we were expected to share workstations. Salaries were commission only.
