Pros

Diversity of IT experience and responsibility in a challenging, high pressure production-oriented work environment. Attractive salary and year-end bonus structure in a relatively recession-resistant industry.

Cons

Limited opportunities for advancement due to a) ultra-lean staffing, b) infrastucture investment philosophy, c) emphasis on technical support outsourcing, d) management's limited knowledge of information technology in support of the company goals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in ongoing employee staff development to obtain long-term, competitive advantages.

    Cons

    Commision could be a little easier to obtain under certain circumstances.

    I have been working at Marketlink full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's a casual atmosphere, and the work itself is not difficult, once you get familiar with the products being sold.

    Cons

    Minimum wage pay, and very low commissions (as low as $3 and change per sale, an multi-sale days are rare) mean you will be lucky to make $10 an hour. The training doesn't prepare you for being on the floor - you just have to dig in and go for it. It's a cubicle setup, and no personal decor, or even work-based paper materials, are allowed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the training to focus on how to use the systems, rather than fill-in-the-blank worksheet busy work. Keep reps up to date on new features and products. Figure out some way to up the pay, and you will get better applicants.
