    Challenging, room for growth, amazing culture

    Social Media Community Manager (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsIt's hard to not be excited about what's ahead at MSH. Not only has the company seen consistent growth over the past year, but they stick to their core values and what really matters to the company, its employees and its clients. Of all the companies I've worked for, MSH offers the best balance of a fun, hard-working culture, career and growth opportunities, and strong leadership. People seem hungry to keep things going this way, as well, which is exciting.

    ConsNo 401k program (young people don't seem to care!) Parking not paid for in expensive downtown area, but with how much we are growing this would be a massive expense for the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great culture with a huge opportunity for advancement

    Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsIt is not the easiest job out there, but if you work hard will will be rewarded. There is continual support from management and peers. This company is growing every month so there is a ton of opportunity for advancement in that aspect. Even with growth they have been able to maintain a good culture and fun environment. Also did I mention the comp plan!!

    ConsYou have to continue to work hard everyday, this is not a job you can just coast through.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to hire great people!!

    Best job I've ever had

    Local Marketing Consultant (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsGreat culture(Company happy hour almost every Friday, plenty of catered breakfasts and lunches, paid benefits, fantastic people to be around for 9 hours a day during the week, not to mention you work in the heart of downtown Austin) awesome work life balance, plenty of vacation days, management provides constant coaching and support, fantastic commission perks, career opportunities for top performers.

    ConsLet's be realistic, this is a sales career position , if you are looking for a 8-5 job, go work at McDonalds. Their is plenty of stress, turnover, but the people that stick, belong, the people that don't, wash out. Also its a growing start up, if you don't like change, this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing.

    Best Job on the Planet in Social Media Management

    Senior Local Marketing Executive (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe people are amazing here. I love my co workers and the upper management team. Super personable, friendly and and they really care you have a great work-life balance. You are treated as an adult who cares about your job and there is so much to work for. Frequent incentives: bonus, commission, trips, prizes and so much fun while helping small business owners understand the value of having a presence online. If you enjoy helping people and understand the business value of Facebook, Google, or Yelp absolutely apply today. It changed my life and now I make a huge amount of money and enjoy every moment of my day and the great people I meet.

    ConsMain Street Hub has grown so much since I started about 2 years ago. The new Vice President and the upper management team has done so much to give us more flexibility and rewards that I really have zero to complain about. I am excited to start my day and wake up thrilled to start my day. In the past there were improvement I suggested and you know what they actually did all those things. You will not find a job that listens and responds like this job. They are not stuck in the mud nor do they have a deaf ear. They hear and they care.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are so amazing. I have nothing to add that you have not done. Flexible hours, excellent perks, a wonderful job I just am so thankful for the blessing of working here with you. I hope this will be my only job for the rest of my life. I am totally in love with you.

    If you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen.

    Local Marketing Consultant (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsIn all honesty, this place is entirely what you make of it. If you come in here with an open mind, a thirst for success and unbridled ambition, then you're going to be more than just fine. But, if you enter this job with no work ethic, no ability to take constructive criticism and the desire to merely coast off the base salary, you might as well show yourself to the door. This is sales. You should always be looking for room to improve yourself. In my opinion, most of the negative reviews on here are from disgruntled employees that didn't have what it takes to excel in a competitive, but at the same time supportive, work environment. It's a high energy atmosphere where people play as hard as they work. You have the ability to make a lot of money and some good friends along the way. And because they're only going to keep growing, you have the opportunity to grow with them.

    ConsIt's cold call sales. It's tough. People are rude. You get hung up on, treated like a nuisance or even yelled at. But, again ... it's cold calling! It's the same anywhere at an entry level position such as this. Until you can demonstrate your knowledge and skill in handling the product, warm leads won't find their way into your pipeline.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI'm totally satisfied with my experience here in the Austin office. Help is all around you, but you have to be willing to ask.

    Challenging environment with room to develop and make an impact

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsCreativity is valued very highly when it comes to the Community Management team -- having a chance to push yourself and get/give feedback is awesome. There's room to develop and grow, and you can see the impact you're making on local businesses. Speaking up is encouraged. The culture is very tight-knit, where your coworkers and managers challenge you to do better, think bigger, and push harder. All of the above creates a very dynamic, fulfilling work environment.

    ConsAs a start-up, some processes aren't fleshed out, but I have no doubt we'll figure that out as we grow -- growing pains are to be expected.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to welcome constructive dissent and the endeavor to be as transparent as possible.
