Nice company, excellent manager.
Good territory near home so not far to travel.

Good working hours.

Promises made though never followed through.

Salary very poor- our account was the worse paid. Poor bonus and sometimes not always achievable. They give unrealistic goals.

Very good
Cpm is a great company to work for especially if you have a family because the working hours are very flexible. The management is excellent and every staff is teated fairly and equally. There shifts are not contracted but all staffs received holiday payments. The most enjoyable part of the job is, talking to people

Wouldnt Touch Them As An Employer
Overall they were a company who did not look after their employees.
No formal training or support was given to me over the 2 years of service.

Management themselves were none supportive.

Training itself was very hip-hop meaning no training schedule was given.

Training days were cancelled within minutes of starting.

Great people, not so great management
The people make the company rather than the senior management, in the SMT there are a lot of talkers but not a lot of doers. There is a great deal of presue applied to people rather junior but they are not paid fairly for this pressure/expectation. CPM seems to have a tendency to chew people up and spit them out.
Pros
Great people, active social scene, good benefits package, relaxed attitude to attire
Cons
Long hours, unhealthy work/life balance, a lot of pressure applied without fair renumeration, a culture of "if your face fits then you're in"

Stay well clear terrible terrible company to work for
Terrible company to work for firstly pay is terrible and 2nd always find an excuse not to pay your bonus hardly anyone on my team got bonus thats why they have such a high staff turnover they cant keep people and they loose such good people due to such bad management its run by two monkeys who havent a clue how to run it,if management was up to scratch then maybe the vodafone account would have a hope.in my opinion Vodafone should of left the account with salessence cause there wasting there time with cpm.my teamleader was more interested in his own sales and awards for selling rather than doing his job that he gets paid for,he hated to see anyone do better than him and if you did that shows him up so they will push you out.the only way you can do better with cpm on the vodafone account is if everyone else is doing terrible.my team leader thought he was the best of the best that there was noone like him he spoke down to us and insulted us alot hes a snake.he should of never gotten the team leader role cause hes no people skills,he wouldn't train a monkey only reason he was promoted was cause of his sales performance and saying that they should of kept him on residential cause hes no manners when it comes to dealing with business people hes too ignorant and pushy.one of his saying really annoyed me and it was so unprofessional it was "yanno what i mean'. He lead the circus on the Vodafone account and told his manger what to do and how things were to be run his way and our manager was a nice man but then changed i wouldnt trust any of them there all out for themselves.

Not a good company to work for
Bosses don’t care about the staff! as long as they have people to do demonstrations in stores they are happy. Asda stores are freezing and your standing in one spot for 6 hours at a time you don’t get a uniform or jacket to wear it’s a joke if you ring some of your so called bosses they don’t answer or reply to yoproblems

poor management
I worked here from November am still waiting to be paid !! Be prepared to have to do EVERYTHING off your own back. I even had to introduce myself to the team manager through a text message myself.
Other staff can be very negative as there is no recognition for performance etc so it is very thankless.

I had something stolen from my pocket as there are no lockers for staff and your told to keep everything with you.

Good company
Great company, you get left to you own thing and trusted. Good wages but this can be a down side when companies look at taking the roles in house and then you end up out of a job.

Life learning experience
It was a great experience of working as a fundraiser for medicines sans frontiers (Doctors without Borders). I improved my communication and dealing with the public skills. I have to go door to door to talk to people create awareness about the MSF and ask people to sign up for funding. The management was good and they try to make best out of me. The staff at company was generally cooperative and did well with me during the course of employment.
Pros
Work of a good cause
