    "The best in the very, very strange "promotional products / marketing materials" industry."

    I worked at InnerWorkings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Getting to work with fortune 500 clients, very cool spirits and beers brands. Compared to their competitors, InnerWorkings has, without a doubt, the best internal systems in place. While the tech can always use improvement, it's miles above companies that think they are in InnerWorkings league. Processes, for the most part, are locked in.

    Cons

    As with other companies in their industry, there are countless shortcomings. Here are a few... * Office culture varies wildly from location to location. * Depending on your office location, there is no real upwards mobility. * The sales force has little to no understand of the product(s) they are selling, which creates wildly uncomfortable situations when clients are on boarded under false pretenses. * The pay is minimal compared to their competitors. * There's no real interest to attract top talent. * Systems are constantly rolled out half baked.

    I worked at InnerWorkings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You learn a lot very quickly and earn new responsibilities daily if you can keep up. You get to work with big name clients and learn valuable skills to take with you.

    Cons

    While the work environment and tasks are enjoyable, very little to no compensation changes occur with gained responsibilities. There is a high turn over rate with this company because they will literally work you to death until you quit, using you for just as little compensation as they can. Even large promotions and title changes come with very minimal pay increases. For someone fresh out of college with little to no corporate experience, this place is great! I learned a lot that I am able to take with me now but it was disappointing that they don't want to spend the money to retain the talent that they developed. The culture is also not very friendly for families with children. You were looked at as more of a burden and less of an asset if you had children and were not offered as many opportunities to travel or take on other projects. Requesting time off for children's illnesses, appointments or school events definitely affected my progress with the company. Definitely not a family friendly company. For young, single, unmarried people, that do not care about a work/life balance this place is a good place to start. Career-wise and long-term, it wasn't somewhere I could plant roots.

    "Inwk"

    I have been working at InnerWorkings full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, lots of opportunities to explore new ideas, open door management, friendly employees.

    Cons

    Little to no upward mobility, completely focused on results and getting the job done by whatever means possible. Employees are like a revolving door, and the "culture" is that everyone's bonding over counting down the hours to leave.

    Pros

    You'll meet great people that you hopefully can network with after InnerWorkings

    Cons

    Senior management is extremely unprofessional, discouraging, and out of touch with its employees. There is an extreme amount of talent surrounding your floor - open your eyes and look for it, it's coming and going through your doors faster than you can think. Cherish and provide merit to those who deserve credit. People come from all over to work at the glorious big-name print company "Innerworkings." It's all smoke and mirrors before you land a position at this company. I would caution anyone from considering a position with Innerworkings. The inside sales team hardly knows about the products they're selling, inside sales is bombarded with demotivational meetings, there is little to no room for advancement. Similar to the Groupon model, the company is full of people who are overworked and underpaid, and actively searching for other jobs.

    I have been working at InnerWorkings full-time

    Pros

    Might look good on paper, but there are not many Pros to working for this company. Nice office space and a young, inexperienced employee environment.

    Cons

    Where to start?: General lack of overall structure. Poor leadership and management structure. Management is a revolving door, as others have stated on this site. Management cares about answering to shareholders only. Employees and clients are at the bottom of the list. Deceptive business practices. Little to no growth opportunities and few cross promotion opportunities.

    Pros

    You'll meet some fun people. Chicago is great. Non-inside sales part of the company is a good place to be.

    Cons

    Fair warning: Positive reviews are posted by InnerWorkings HR department. (They began end of October into beginning of November 2012 immediately after HR was reprimanded by management due to low quality hires.) This is not a company to have a career. You will get paid next to nothing (no opportunity for significant growth). They do not provide things that should be typical of sales such as reimbursing mandatory work excursions. InnerWorkings has many practices that are unethical. They have been reported to Better Business Bureau on at least two occasions that I know of. You will be told to lie to clients. They actually provide very little to no value to clients. They will misrepresent the job to you during your interview. You will find out shortly after starting that the job is much different. Leadership is very poor. Most quality employees or leaders will move on quickly. If you are a motivated, educated person who is interested in going places in your career, stay far away from InnerWorkings.

    I worked at InnerWorkings

    Pros

    Good Work / Life balance, free atmosphere with a lot of freedom in how to do your job. Most of the people that work there are very nice and fun, with a family like feel

    Cons

    There is a lot of favoritism and many times the senior management feels like a secret club that doesn't talk to you about plans for the future or what is "really" going on. The growth potential is horrible here, with little to no middle management. Benifits are not good, and Salaray is so/so.
