Good to start your career, but not for the long haul
Senior Account Executive (Current Employee), Rogers, AR – November 16, 2015
Pros: Fun Young Culture
Cons: Low pay
Depending on your account it can be a very fun position. It's great to start out your career because you get some great experience. Like most sports marketing positions pay is not great. I do feel like they struggle to train new talent. It's very much a sink or swim mentality.
company with great success and happiness ,work commitment
IT Officer (Former Employee), Baghdad – October 12, 2015
stick to job tasked instantly , I had learned to be a job commitment and got an experience for many software , the was a great respect ,work commitment and sense of hummer among the co-workers in the brake, the hardest part is when the employer in rush and should finish the task so quickly. the most enjoyable part is the great relations among the other employees.
Senior Account Executive, Events and Hospitality (Current Employee), Norwalk, CT – August 31, 2015
Octagon is a large agency that has great clients. It offers people who are new to the industry great opportunities to learn the business of sports marketing. However the way they treat their employees in some cases is not the best, being a large agency sometimes good quality work is overlooked.
Great opportunities are available for recent college grads to work on national marketing campaigns. Unfortunately, beyond that it is quite a revolving door. Entry and mid level employees seem to last no more than 2-3 years unless they advance quickly (which is really rare) due to lack of competitive salaries and benefits, poor communication from management and poor work-life balance.
