    Cons

    so much pressure to all the workers...thats business anyway..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont hold your empleyees, because you cannot achieve sales without them...dont put to much pressure on them, for the sake of achieving the sales...they are also human being who gets tired and have problems...

    I worked at Market Strategies International

    Pros

    During the difficult year of 2009, upper management did everything they could to retain talented employees, including giving themselves pay cuts and instituting furlough days rather than pay cuts in the lower ranks.

    Cons

    Pretty hierarchical, low entry level salaries, difficult to advance. Needs more family-oriented female leadership.

    I worked at Market Strategies International

    Pros

    A good solid company to work for. Some departments are better than others to work in depending on the people. This company has been acquiring other companies so the number of employees has increased significantly.

    Cons

    Job security is a problem with the growing pains they are experiencing with the move to a new corportate office, acquisitions and hiring practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind the need for support staff to facilitate the work that is done for clients. It is difficult to deliver excellent results sometimes.

    Pros

    Nice office downtown, I hear....I was never invited to visit it though. They have some pretty good business relationships there.

    Cons

    Company wasn't clear about direction they wanted to go. They were adding people and selling offices in what seemed to be a willy-nilly fashion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to update the technology. Need to have a more defined plan. Need to have a more defined career path
