great company to work for when you are successful
Senior sales executive (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC25 September 2017
Marcus Evans was my first "real" job after school. It was a fun job with amazing co-workers but It was definitely a challenging experience in a positive way.
I had to learn how to negotiate with high level management (Presidents & CEOs) and maintain business conversations that would lead to the sale.
I enjoyed the events industry cause I was able to travel within the company and meet my clients face to face.
Overall, it was a very rewarding experience, both from a business and a personal perspective.

Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 August 2017
Cold calling and researching leads all day. Min 120 calls or 2 hours of speaking on the phone. Young and fun crowd but a high turn over. Good if you start your career.

Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON11 August 2016
Exciting job, loved my coworkers and the company paid very well if you work hard and make sales. Getting to travel was a bonus, attending summits at 5 star hotels and making friends across the world.

Full time employee (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 March 2016
This job will toughen you up if you are just starting your career. There is a lack of aspiring managers. They all like to bicker, and act like childish people. Don't expect to make a lot of money in your first few months IF you even last that long.

very boring and no training
Project Executive (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 February 2016
no one really cares how you do
the training of the management isn't really training, it's really only judging

not a hard job, very simple actually but it's extremely boring!
making calls all day to random people from 8-5 is extremely boring!

if you make one sale, you actually lose money at the end of the month.....

you can advance to further positions based on your own efforts which is cool but again it is EXTREMELY boring!

PROJECT EXECUTIVE (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 November 2015
No Job Security and Job Culture or Job Work / Life balance is zero.

A typical Day at work is great but very constricted.

Co-Workers are amazing but the management is not up to the notch.

Productive and challenging place to work
Senior Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Toronto ON18 July 2014
A great place to work with outstanding senior management. Work to life balance was challenging for me b/c I was travelling to and from work 3 hours a day. Other then that I would recommend the job to anyone especially those who possess excellent communication skills.
Pros
Benefits Excellent Commission
Cons
lots of travelling and research required

great place to get a kick start in your career in sales
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC16 November 2013
i learned how to be more confident on the phone and more aggressive when tackling an objection. improved my communication skills with upper management. learned to talk to CEOs and Company owners as an equal.

the team is very helpful and resourceful and made it easy to adapt.

the hardest part was the lead generation and the penetration of gate keepers ( personal assistance/ secretaries)
Pros
equality in management
Cons
short breaks, stressful environment

Jr. Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC4 October 2013
In regards to Marcus Evans,

They promise high sales comissions, but have you are unable to sent information to prospective clients, they have to make a decision within 24 hours.
Additionaly I was promised a higer salary then I wa given, and management is lacking.
Overall the job is very monotomous.

You are expected to be on the telephone reading scripted sales pitches. Not much flexibility or tolerance for innovation.

Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC5 July 2012
An Account Executive position at Marcus Evans is not for everyone
It requires a lot of hard work, adaptability and a strong will to succeed. A typical day starts off with a morning meeting highlighting the objectives of the day followed by an enthusiastic rush to get the day started.

They employ very talented people with the capacity to become some of the sharpest sales people in North America, if not the world. The managers are very helpful and understanding. They certainly make it a fun environment.
Pros
great incentives, high commission
Cons
low salaries
