    Former Employee - LG Product Specialist in Charlotte, NC

    I worked at MarketStar full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job ... It's a job... It's a job.

    Cons

    Little concern for amount of work load being placed on Product Specialists. NO work/ Personal Life balance. No salary increases for amount of work being given and message to employees shows you do not care when you consistently do nothing to change or recognize employees for the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and listen to employees and why they are leaving or you have created a revolving door already.

    I worked at MarketStar as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced hiring, excellent pay, excellent training

    Cons

    I saw no cons to this company or this particular position. Everything was explained to me up front and this is exactly what happened. Open communication and no issues for someone that is experienced with contact work or brand ambassador positions.

    Pros

    MarketStar is a great place to work, great benefits, flexible work schedule, they care about families and want you to succeed.

    Cons

    Pay isn't as competitive as it should be so its hard to keep the best employees. This causes high attrition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more.

    Great company to work for with great values

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    Generous PTO and compensation. Clean work environment. MarketStar ate a lot of the increased cost for benefits when rates went up so that the employees could retain approximately the same take home pay.

    Cons

    Since most teams are client-based, your job is at the mercy of how well that client is doing in their respective markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruiting always claims to be there to help those that have been laid off from a team as part of a downsizing, but never seems to call afterwards. A lot of great team members have not returned to MarketStar after a RIF because of the difficulty to get a call back.

    Pros

    I enjoy my job content, a lot of management shakeup recently but I think it will all turn out for the better.

    Cons

    Compensation isn't great compared to industry standards. The BI department has become the catch all for lack of operations managers, which can make your job challenging.

    Lacking vision from the top down...not the company that Alan Hall built.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at MarketStar full-time

    Pros

    Good people in the trenches, great clients to work with and great technologies developed for the company, by the company.

    Cons

    Don't plan on retiring there. They've eliminated anyone who helped build the company and loyal to the Alan Hall Brand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the President/CEO as fast as you can and return the company to being a visionary leader in the industry which leads the top companies in the world to prosperity. Forget this mindset that companies based in Ogden Utah must be moved to California or other markets to maintain their lead. Read the paper and see the number of companies coming to Utah along with the number of start-ups who are finding success globally.

    Pros

    I was a remote employee and had great flexiblity, great training from the manufacturer I represented.

    Cons

    Hard for remote employees to feel like part of the team. Found the people generally nice but very cliquish.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at MarketStar

    Pros

    - Good pay for a call center
    - They do a lot of activities during work (auctions, BBQs, etc)

    Cons

    - They promise room to grow in the company after a year at your current position (false). Once you reach your year mark and want to apply to other departments they provide all sorts of reasons why you cant. Example: used all your Paid Time Off and need to accrue more, your team is not full, you dont have a "green scorecard" for the past 3 months. Meaning if you miss one metric during the week the 3 months starts over.
    - They treat you like children. If you do well they give you candy ice cream, and $5 subway gift cards
    - Management is very young and have no clue how to manage
    - Religion is one of their "4 Pillars", if you are not LDS you feel very out of place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Be clear about advancement opportunities
    - Treat employees like adults and not 12 year olds. Candy doesn't motivate anyone.

    I have been working at MarketStar full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible daily schedule. Great vacation time off the bat. Mostly low stress. If you do your job, you'll be left alone.

    Cons

    Job really depends on the client you work for and the management up top. Working weekends was required for the program I worked for. Communication was very poor at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication. Improve moral by offering perks (extra weekend off, extra PTO day, ect.).
