      Pros

      The people - great team ethic and drive within the Marketing department. The Products - GDS is leading the way in Digital Events and its great to be a part of it. Learning - I am consistently learning new skills & getting involved in new projects, which I personally find great for my growth & development.

      Cons

      No real cons, only challenge is the business is growing so quickly you need to be able to keep up with the pace.

      Pros

      GDS provides great training for the new starters and everyone is really welcoming and supporting. They definitely take the time to give back to their staff and say thank you for the hard work. It has been a rewarding experience.

      Cons

      I haven't experienced any downsides myself, but I would say this job is most suited for driven and ambitious individuals that want to accelerate their career.

      Pros

      A fairly repetitive sales job, great opportunity to learn cold calling and reading a pitch. Culture a bit youthful, good energy, made some friends here.

      Cons

      Can have some less than stellar people working here

      Pros

      cool people, decent office. only options for parking are either risking a ticket or walking 5 blocks in the miami heat.

      Cons

      practically impossible to come in and make good money. OTE is described as 150k first year and 300k 2nd year. There is no way you will sniff 150k until 5 years. However, most leave within 3-4 months due to the type of work. Terrible benfits.
