    Show more respect to hourly workers; many times, they have more experience and education that the managers do. If not for them, no one would have a job!

    I worked at Market Strategies International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    All functional roles work closely together at all levels, promoting a solid team-oriented culture.

    Flat organization with a few exceptions.

    Supportive HR and training initiatives.

    Process, process, process, a must-have for an organization with multiple functional roles working together.

    Data management better than other firms, but definitely has plenty of room for improvement.

    Cons

    Promotions rare outside of client management roles.

    Large salary disparities within individual functional roles.

    Outsourcing data management and other roles diminishes deliverable quality and follow through.

    Advice to Management

    Promote staff more frequently, especially star performers. Verbal merits only go so far. Provide staff with more constructive feedback to promote effective skill building and creative solutions to career paths.
