    I worked at Marsden full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Looks like a good company with good people with the financial support to have a big operation.

    Cons

    Even thou Marsden is in 45 states with billions in revenue basically through buying smaller competitors, there is not much of a company culture, there's not a unified way of doing things, knowledge is not shared among sales reps.
    -There is the concept of Marsden University, which is University of Phoenix in disguise without the "paper value".
    -The buddy training system does not work among sales reps because to each its own and results are king!
    - No results in 60 days and you are gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The concept of Marsden University is bright, but you need to do a REAL Marsden University with a way to customize and homogenize knowledge the Marsden way and have a Marsden sales culture with true sales leaders that will help grow your people and your business - organic growth. Make your employees love Marsden and stop low balling it as "we didn't go to school to sell janitorial". If you are going to do something go big or go home!

    Pros

    It seems as though the pay is competitive. Probably one of the better reasons to work there.

    Cons

    CEO and CIO favor family members - create positions for them. They give them raises and promotions for nothing. Not a good way to run a company. Other employees are not blind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up executive team. You are going to lose good people with family favoritism,
