    I have been working at Marketing Resources Solutions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    M/R/S offers flexible schedule, ability to work remote from time to time. Senior management is open to suggestions. M/R/S has clients from Fortune 100 to small companies. I enjoy working with a variety of clients. Although staff is national, our weekly team calls keeps us connected and working towards the same goals.

    Cons

    M/R/S does not have layers of corporate senior leadership. Opportunity to become a VP limited as there are limited VP positions within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider creating additional levels/positions to allow senior leadership career growth.

    Pros

    I was lucky to get a job with a good company

    Cons

    Good luck getting paid. I cannot get anyone to return my call because I haven't received my last pay cheque, they canceled my insurance and didn't bother telling me, and they transfer money to your bank account and you end up paying all of the transfer fees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least call me back and rectify these issues so I can move on. I have spent a month leaving messages. This is extremely unprofessional.

    Autonomous Environment Leveraging Solid Relationships with Clients

    I have been working at Marketing Resources Solutions full-time

    Pros

    There is a level of autonomy with each employee to develop and leverage current and new relationships with clients. Interfacing with the market from a candidate development standpoint and directly with the client supports true cohesiveness and a talent advisor model.

    MRS develops long term relationships with its consultants and has the candidates career goals and objectives top of mind as they introduce them to clients.

    Cons

    Expand footprint to other major metro areas

    I worked at Marketing Resources Solutions as a contractor

    Pros

    The only positive thing is that they somehow managed to get me a contract role with PepsiCo.

    Cons

    This place never pays their contractors on time and if you bring it up, YOU get reprimanded. They act like they're doing you a favor by paying you. You never get any follow up on important issues, like benefits or reimbursements, for example.
