    The work is typically not difficult, but there are few real opportunities for growth here.

    Pros

    The workplace is not high stress. However, there are times when management can overdo things in attempts to please "THE CLIENT."

    Cons

    The goal of MarketSource is centered around bringing in new people for their clients. There is no emphasis on retention or doing what's best for the employees that are currently here. If you are fresh out of college, this is a good place to gain experience. Otherwise, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should work to do a lot better at doing what's best for their current employees. The approach to retention is very passive. Instead of focusing on hiring new people, figure out what you can do to provide better opportunities for current ones.

    Pros

    Career opportunities are endless for people that work hard and don't expect things to be handed to them. Most people that work for MarketSource are remote employee's which means if you want to be successful you have to understand three things: results matter, the client needs to love you and your communication with your boss is important so that they understand your successes.

    The culture is the reason I joined the team. People here place high value on the core values and the culture, it was a refreshing change for me.

    Cons

    The business is contract driven with the client, which means the program can direction in a moments notice. "Fire-drills" are common, accept this early and you'll be fine. HR & payroll support leaves much to be desired for a company of it's size. They try really hard, those departments are just under-resourced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on improving communication to all levels of the organization.

    Pros

    The customers you meet and employees.

    Cons

    There no real manager to make sure everything is running smoothly. The dm never around or has time to really talk to you. if you happen to not be lucky to get the Manger job. You will be stuck with 22 hours a week and no room to grow.

    Pros

    Recognized by your numbers/performance, but definitely values relationships a little more. The company is growing, so there are always new management positions becoming available. You don't have to wait for someone to be promoted because in 6 months, there will be a new position that wasn't there before. Someone can come in and outwork a long term employee in a few months. It's all about hustle.

    Cons

    With growth, comes change, and some people don't like change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and reward your top performers. Keep them happy instead of having the mentality that they can be replaced.

    Pros

    Solid core values, autonomy of schedule, people that I work with in the field and home office, excellent support team.

    Cons

    Operates in silos, poor compensation, high turnover, limited career path.
    The field retail operations center is worst in class and was acquired by the client, which somehow became worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look internally for qualified candidates first, develop a fair compensation plan that is easy to understand, aligned with business objectives and attainable.
