    I have been working at BrandStar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Culture of positivity, creativity, teamwork, and mutual respect!

    Starting salary could be higher, but planning to be here for a long time, so I’m confident that will come.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing. Transparency is key.

    I have been working at BrandStar full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Respectful and supportive of people. You need to be able to be creative, think outside the box as well as see connections with products to develop a story. Not your typical sales or account management position. Its about “what does the possible client have to offer us”? Detailed training that includes meeting every division and understanding of the inner workings. Focus is on people and business. You need to target...

    Cons

    Company is growing and at times very fast. So you have your usual growing pains. Things happy, so not all is perfect but everyone seems to try and cares to work and make things right

    Advice to Management

    Continue down the same path. Need some way to prevent "duplicates" in the system.

    Pros

    As to above review. It’s “Whatever it Takes”. The owners actually reward you with an adorable award along with a $50.00 gift card for really just doing your job. Brandstar is the most upbeat company to be a part of. Notice I didn’t say “work for”, because we are a a part of the company. I have worked for many years for different companies and I, along with most of the 100+employees feel “blessed” to be a member of this...

    Pros

    The energy is through the roof! The culture is phenomenal. I love that the company focus on giving back to the community. Can't say enough great things about working here.

    Cons

    Parking can be difficult at times with the growth but that seems to be improving with the new parking lot. There is really nothing bad i can say but this is the only thing i can think of.

    Advice to Management

    continue to think big and keep motivating the staff.

    Pros

    Some really nice people work there.

    Cons

    They don't want to pay what they promised. Ever.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take forever to pay. It is a battle to get paid almost every time. Value your employees, it will pay in the long run. Strange company! Lots of really great people here. It's almost as if the video productions are an after-thought. There's never enough money spent on the actual productions. But, hey, they have big screen TV's and the office looks nice. It is all a facade. This company seems to be terribly confused...

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment that was a pretty good "oiled machine" Meet people from across the country who were passionate about their products to sell.

    Cons

    Never knew if you were going to get paid on time.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more creative ways to sell/promote people's products.

    This company is evolving quickly since the executive leadership shift in 2017. There is a fast paced, results oriented creative energy that fuels a working culture of communication and mutual respect between employees. It is quite unique. Leadership is always listening for process improvements that can significantly improve efficiency, productivity, and customer satisfaction. If given the opportunity, the job is up to...

    I worked at BrandStar full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Beautiful new buildings Awesome work spaces Commission possibilities Nice co workers Good leaders for the most part Brandstar was a great place for me to get my foot in the door. I was an appointment setter so I can’t speak for other departments but I can say that my upper management was awesome. Scott and Jack are great. They will work with you if you have a problem. They’re very blunt (which some people can’t handle)...

    Cons

    No direct deposit Very telemarketing- oriented they will micromanage when numbers are bad. they once had us a write a list of each thing we did during the day. yikes. i think that rule went away after a week though. Health care expensive Not in a great location (far from any restaurants) Not a lot of diversity Not a ton of room for growth

    Advice to Management

    Don’t have so many useless “C Level” employees who don’t really do anything. Pay a little more to the EA’s and the work will follow. Work on the producers getting better leads instead of recycling crap to meet their numbers. Honestly, I did love Brandstar. I’m sad things didn’t work out but it’s not the worst company to work for (considering most companies in Florida are actual scams) This is a good place just some areas...
