    I have been working at Market Track full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The employees are very close-knit employees. Pretty good benefits including 401k and a lot of vacation time. I would also say its a well respected product, which makes it easy to sell so long as you know how to focus on the right buying centers. The company is owned by a private equity firm and has been on a buying spree. There office is the nicest I've worked at yet in the Willis Tower and everyone has a lot of space to work. Lots of REAL opportunity for commission, even on renewals.

    Cons

    Just like everyone else says, the hours are long. Expect weekly 7 and 8 o'clock meetings, especially if you have east coast territory. The travel can be a little hard too depending on your position. There's a lot of "sink or swim" mentality from the managers, but sometimes that can be a good thing too.

    Pros

    There are lots of very intelligent people solving very hard problems. Some of the skills I've learned on this job are years ahead of other jobs I've been at.

    Cons

    The management can be very demanding. I've had to work a couple weekends this year, though to be fair the company let me take some extra vacation days a few months later.

    I have been working at Market Track full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company has very high commission structure with a reputable name in the industry. The products are very easy to sell (market research data). There are a lot of knowledgeable people around all the time.

    Cons

    The management is very demanding, and the products are very complex. I spent a lot of time learning what our product base really is, and if I had one complaint it was that there is not enough training on all the various components.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve training structure on the products so that its not as much of a trial by fire all the time.

    Pros

    Regular reviews and rewards for conscientious problem-solvers. Work in an industry that is constantly evolving and becoming more and more pervasive everyday. Pleasant environment and great coworkers.

    Cons

    Nothing. Unless you don't want to work downtown in one of America's tallest skyscrapers, for some reason. I enjoy leaving the car at home and taking the train.

    Pros

    Exciting environment, market leader, growth oriented, blue chip client base

    Cons

    Speed sometimes comes at a cost to quality. Organization can be disjointed at times. The industry is prone to quality issues due to the nature of the work and the syndicated solution offering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speed without regard to quality makes for less than optimal results with clients who expect both. Do right by the clients.
