Great atmosphere in a dying industry

Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee)
Helena, AL

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

ProsThere is a great corporate atmosphere. The training is very thorough

Consselling print mail is EXTREMELY difficult in the digital age. The new hire compensation system is bad for sales. And the account services and graphics team are grossly underpaid.

Advice to Senior ManagementRethink the sales process for Inside Sales. It doesn't work the same as outside sales. The new hire compensation system is bad for sales. And the account services and graphics team are grossly underpaid.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great at recruiting great people. Total mismatch of talent and position.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Mspark full-time for more than 3 years

Pros-they have recruited great talent
-software developed on-site
-all depts great to work with except client services
-appear to be growing in a bright new direction
-produce loyal and hard-working employees

Cons-in need of management overhaul
-high turnover in client services

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a complete mismatch of talent and skill in client services. Sales staff is stressed out trying to meet unrealistic goals. Double marketing...outsource client services.

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

Great Environment, Inspiring Leadership, Uninspiring Industry

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Mspark

ProsGreat Environment, Inspiring Leadership - The senior management all are very competent and genuinely care about the employees of the organization. The environment is professional but very down to earth. Family-oriented atmosphere.

ConsUninspiring Industry - There's just not a lot to get excited about although the company is becoming very dynamic and recognizes that it needs to adapt to the changing landscape of print media.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep moving toward digital to make it over the coming hump in print media. The insurance plan could be a bit better given the size of the organization.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
