Exciting, Fun Place to Work
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Cedar Falls, IAJune 22, 2016
Mudd Advertising is one of the leading automotive advertising agencies in the country. They are the cutting edge as far as traditional and digital advertising.

It's a fast paced advertising firm that services over 300 dealers on a monthly basis. The hardest part of the job is dealing with micro-managers and meeting sometimes unrealistic deadlines.

The most employees are a thrill to work with and make the working day enjoyable.
Pros
Relaxed dress code, no working weekends, family oriented
Cons
Unrealistic deadlines and limited job growth.

Interesting Experience
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Cedar Falls, IAMay 6, 2013
This place focuses on outbound sales calls to automotive dealerships. It was a very difficult position due to some of the circumstances and the way I was brainwashed. I learned very aggressive sales techniques, and that was the most valuable information, second being how SEO and SEM work. Management was very hard nosed, and were even to the point of making you feel guilty if you were in the hospital. The hardest part about this job was making a connection with someone over the phone. The most enjoyable part was talking to the co workers.
Pros
Good information, some good training
Cons
overwhelming, too many others to list

Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  Cedar Falls, IAApril 6, 2014
Great family owned environment. The Mudd family is result oriented and backs their employees 100%. This job is not for everyone, very demanding and taxing mentally. High turnover come from how hard the job is. If you are good at building relationships, communicating, and overcoming objections this could be a good job for you.
Pros
Cafeteria, Gym, Earning potential, co-workers, owners

Call Center Rep (Former Employee) –  Cedar Falls, IAJune 24, 2015
My best job yet, wish they didn't have to down shift. A company that treats their employees well. I would have ever traded this job. Easy to move up in the work place environment they give.

Territory Manager: Money is the only positive.
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Cedar Falls, IAMay 27, 2015
If all you care about is money, then work here. If you have a desire for connecting with people and having a greater purpose than just talking on the phone all day and being mentally manipulated by a choice few managers, then don't work here.

You have the ability to make a great deal of money. But prepare to feel unappreciated by specific management if you experience success. You will be treated no differently. Don't get me wrong, it's a great way to keep pushing past any success ceiling. However, if you don't handle conflict well and don't like someone standing over your shoulder upset if you don't let be a puppeteer, don't do this.

Struggling to make sales is one thing. But when you get constantly criticized and deal with hot-tempered management on top of that, you'll finally realize that the best scenario is to leave.

If you do this, prepare for:
-Everyone knowing anything and everything about your personal life.
-Bullying.
-Harassment of all types.
-A negative environment on 80% of days.
-Nothing ever being enough.


On the other hand, having success DESPITE all of that can be very rewarding. But it gets OLD in the long term.

Something has to change. You can't treat good employees like garbage as if this company is their only option for success other than "working at McDonald's" and other unrealistic comparisons used to "motivate" you.

POSITIVITY always wins. So LEARN that and teach it to management.

**SOME management are VERY good with helping and allowing proper ROOM for growth. So your experience is based solely on who you get as a manager, which
  more... you don't choose obviously.

So you decide whether it's worth the risk. If not, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME HERE.
