    I have been working at Market Resource Partners

    Pros

    I really love working at Market Resource Partners. Everyone I work with is fun, interesting, dynamic, outgoing, and intelligent. The upper management recognizes hard work and it is easy to move up in the company if you continue to show them work ethic and positive attitude. Positive attitude thrives. The bonus structure can be amazing, again, based on work ethic. People who don't work hard or don't apply themselves don't make a lot of money; those who do, make lots. The company favors people who smile, are positive, work hard, and lead from the front. The actual tele-marketing aspect is easy and therefore extremely profitable for people who understand sales. This is maybe not the best job for someone right out of college; it is, however, a great job for someone 25-30 who has sales experience and/or wants to break into the IT career path. I knew nothing--absolutely nothing--about IT and its impact on the world before I came to MRP and now I am excited to begin looking for an outside IT sales job that pays in the 6-figure range. People who complain about this company are probably too young or don't have any focus/work ethic to make good money, but I tell people all the time what a great work environment we have. The company gives away lots of prizes and sends people to basketball and football games all the time. There is little to no micro-management, as the brand managers have a lot on their plate and appreciate someone who can manage themselves. If you get your work done and do what you're supposed to, they will essentially leave you alone and do anything to help you if you need it. MRP is a great company.

    Cons

    The CRM that the company uses will sometimes go down for hours at a time. Base salary could be higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to analyze bonus structure so that it is always getting better.

    Great Place to Start in Tech Sales

    Pros

    Market Resource Partners (MRP) is a growing company and has big plans for the future. MRP is the kind of company that sees itself as a starting block. They spend time training people in Tech and sales. There is a great culture of young professionals. Also there is possible upward movement at the company. They promote from within most of the time.

    Cons

    The main challenges of working at MRP comes from growing pains. The company is in some ways still trying to figure out how to grow. They are still learning how to manage and train the influx of people. There are also some problems with data and CRM, which make working within lists sometimes frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to different ways to manage and grow. The best way might be something very different then the current set up. Also update the CRM!

    Pros

    -Great opportunity to gain cold calling experience along with build you sales skills and technology knowledge. The basics you learn as an Account Executive will stay with you as you grow in your career and as an individual.

    - I have been promoted twice in 18 months and was able to grow with the training and help Brand Managers and other talented Account Executives taught me.

    -Co-workers overall are a great group of people.

    Cons

    -Daily grind of 100-150 calls

    -Siebel is outdated and needs to be upgraded, makes the workflow very difficult throughout the day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to value and listen to the Account Executives regardless of what the topic is, they drive the business and their morale is extremely important. Brand Managers and Client Services need to go through more solution training overall especially with brands their are managing so they are equipped to answer more specific questions outside of size and timeline of a project.

    Pros

    If you get chosen for a good campaign (Cisco) then you can make money. Good chance to learn the industry, vendor products. Good experience cold calling into national accounts, learning how to pitch produc via phone to VP and C-level executives.

    Cons

    Lots of internal political BS goes on for each individual team, have to learn how to navigate the waters carefully. They also have a tendency to change the comp plan for the worse each year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Seibel CRM and upgrade to Salesforce.com

    Pros

    You can potentially earn decent money here but management will go out of their way to ensure you see as little of it as possible.

    Cons

    Bonus figures are always wrong and you have to fight for what you're owed. Terrible working environment. Expected to make 150 calls a day to people who were likely contacted about the same thing the previous week. Poor management, especially Senior Managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become a staff orientated business. Make staff want to succeed by incentives, rather than punishing them, sacking them and hoping the next group will be different.
