Retail Team Manager, Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – January 11, 2019
A lot of work, a lot of fun. I loved my years working for GMR Marketing. I learned a lot in my time with the company and was able to advance. I enjoyed all of my travel and development opportunities. Job security is the biggest concern because it is often based on needs of clients.
Remote position with little to no concern for field employees well being
Sr. Market Manager/Client Services (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – February 12, 2018
A position with a catch 22: every silver lining when it comes to the work from home/remote factor but little else in terms of career advancement opportunity, healthy work-life balance and genuine care from corporate management. There is great opportunity for GMR Marketing to enhance these characteristics, but the company as a whole seems far more focused on the bottom dollar line than investing in it's overall employee health and well-being. Hard to work for a company that you feel has little care in it's hard working and dedicated employees.
Work from home
Non competitive salary, lack of corporate support, disconnected reality between remote and corporate employees, lower than average benefits
Field Mgr (Former Employee) – New Berlin, WI – October 10, 2018
This was the best job, I enjoyed working the promotions and meeting new people. I started out as a Brand Ambassador and was offered an opportunity to work as a Field Manager once I proved that I could handle the responsibilities I continued on as a Sr Field Manager. Sadly I think they have an age limit for promotions and never call me anymore. Although I don't look my age, guess over 40 is cutoff. Well either way I enjoyed my years here and recommend them to anyone interested in promotional marketing.
Technical Support (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – October 17, 2018
I was welcomed and made apart of the culture from the start. Hands down the most exciting, cutting edge high preforming fun place I've ever worked. Never a dull moment, but never a moment everyone wasn't challenged to create and be your best.
Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – January 9, 2019
The company overall is a good place to work if you want contracted work. Typically, you are representing a client with different promotional offers. The managers are not onsite so that made it difficult to communicate with them.
Sr. Field Marketing Manager/Field Manager (Former Employee) – New Berlin, WI – May 11, 2018
I have been with GMR Marketing since 2005 and have been promoted along the way. Since moving from a different city the work is minimal. But once in awhile I will work an event. The promotions and events are always enjoyable and coordinated great.
Market Manager (Former Employee) – Varied – May 29, 2018
In my experience, on the specific Program on which I worked, those who are hired for higher positions are done so largely due to being part of an exclusive "Boys Club". It's specifically galling when I see professionals with decades of experience on the Program passed over for promotions in favor of those who have never spent a day working on our Program simply because of who they knew. We lost many excellent managers due to this particular issue.
GMR is a great place to gain experience for better positions elsewhere. Don't plan on spending your life here. You'll just be disappointed.
Events Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 11, 2018
GMR is an amazing company to work for! I've worked as a consistent temp (over 7 years) on various events and they treat their employees just like they treat their clients! Very professional and make each event an experience to remember! Coming to work is fun, organized with daily challenges to keep you on your toes.The team work and the staff is what makes completing each task a lot easier! Even on the most difficult, challenging and hectic days the attitude and smiles of the GMR management team is what keeps you going. If you are blessed enough to get hired be prepared for a fun journey and be ready to grow and expand your mind. Everyone here is passionate about what they do which makes working as a GMR employee, just the same as it is when working with their clients...:An Amazing Experience!
Market Manager (Former Employee) – New Berlin, WI – November 30, 2018
GMR is a great place to work. I've been there over 15 years. They are all like a family to me. They have Trainings each year and they give out awards. I myself have over 15 of them. Very good at what they do. Excellent company
Supervisor (Former Employee) – New Berlin, WI – November 16, 2017
Assisted with diverse jobs when needed Learned new jobs Management in all but one assignment was excellent Workplace culture good Getting use to a team and employer but eventually having to leave due to work assignment changes.

Working for GMR Marketing very rewarding
Getting use to a company and employer of great people but having to leave based on work shortage
Tour Manager (Former Employee) – New Berlin, WI – May 28, 2018
Working with GMR Marketing was a good experience, especially with the the position of Tour Manager. I had to lead a 4 person team to promote for various companies. I had to set up, make sure materials we had were enough for the program, talk to venue manager to orchestrate a plan into action and also at the same time to be a brand ambassador to promote. The hard part was writing reports after the event and how they wanted it an hour after the show. But with difficulties, I did like the structure and "organization" that GMR tried to provide.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 7, 2018
I would manage a group of specialists who would work around the Boston bar scene on optimal nights promoting for our client Phillip Morris. A average night night would be stopping in at contracted accounts to collect consumer data.
Field Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 1, 2018
The field manager position I held with GMR was good work experience. I worked with a great client, Comcast which I learned a lot about that company and all of its competitors . The hardest part of the job was working holiday that you would normally have off with a desk job but that how field marketing is.
