Negative Outlook

I worked at Web Marketing Experts full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Sales commission if you have no morals and are just in it for the pay cheque

Cons

- Ruining people's lives by selling a poor service that ruins their business

- Handling 100-150 SEO campaigns and angry customers, it's constant firefighting

- The owner is an egotistical schizophrenic; think... American Pshycho.

- The sheer pressure is bad for your health. Don't get me wrong, I love high pressure, but not to the point where the guilt I'm made to feel is out of my control because the product doesn't actually work, the customer's don't understand and nor can they hardly afford it. You spend all day on the phone being screamed at by small business owners. When you're not on the phone, you're trying to frantically improve matters for clients. Quote: 'The best time to sell is when the client is angry'. Meanwhile, the sales team are roping in more poor souls who've been promised the earth for just a few hundred dollars a month.

- If you want a career in search or any digital marketing, no respected agency will touch you with a bargepole if you've worked at WME. Same applies to Arrow, ROI, Search X etc - they're all the same.

- If you want to make money, go for it - you'll do well if you work hard... but one day you'll wake up realising you have no soul.

Advice to Management

Sit back and think about how many people's lives you have ruined; broken businesses, lost houses and relationships. You have to live with that for the rest of your life.

    Pros

    Young team means decent Friday drinks
    Good office location

    Cons

    Work is super dodgy, you know full well people are getting ripped off and it's your job to bait & switch them
    Owner is an OK guy inherently I suppose, just a terrible manager and rather immature.
    Everything is about short-term with utter disregard for any prospectives... cancer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't do this to people.

    I worked at Web Marketing Experts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay if you are willing and able to sell a service which for the vast majority of customers, seems to be worthless.
    Great team to work with.
    Company is very flexible.

    Cons

    Again... Service for most customers is worthless.. I saw this while working, and its been more clear since I left...
    Complaints on review sites and online forums are never ending... The company has also attempted to buy a huge number of domains to hide the complaints... This is not a company I was willing to put my name towards.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the service, or sell up and be happy with what you have. This will not last.
