    Pros

    Company party/ happy hours

    Cons

    This is not what you expect to do in the interview or training process. Its simply cold calling companies that may or may not have the product your representing such as Dell, Google, Ruckus Wireless Cisco etc... Most of these companies are in contact with their reps so you calling them (a complete stranger from a blocked or random number) doesn't always get your foot in the door. Your calling people all day running into...

    Advice to Management

    Cold calling is a thing of the past, find a better way to find new clients and generate leads, be upfront in the interview.

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

    Pros

    Good hours, great incentives (early outs, gift cards, gaming systems etc), youthful culture, relaxed environment, upper management hired from within.

    Cons

    Low base pay, disorganization of upper management, constantly switching to new messages/teams which hinders the ability to gain a strong understanding of each message you are calling on, compensation not equivalent to amount of work being put in to the job, ability to advance is largely based on corporate politics.

    Advice to Management

    Employees and managers alike are often ingrained with the idea that “everyone is replaceable.” But I’ve found that a big part of feeling valued occurs when employees are aware that they add something to the company that no one else can. There are a lot of great AE's that are not being recognized or compensated for their hard work. This job ultimately falls on upper management to find ways to make the AE role be seen as...

    I have been working at MRP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice location, lots of good people/coworkers. Decent job out of school if you don’t mind cold calling people all day.

    Cons

    Very low base pay, they try to compensate with sales incintives (wawa gift cards). People with the highest numbers move forward. Even tho they manipulate the system and take shortcuts. Some micromanagement. High turnover rate, people are in and out almost weekly. If you do not hit your sales numbers, they will get rid of you. Pressure from upper management can be overwhelming at times.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the good, hardworking employees. Account Executives deserve a higher base pay for the work they do. They are the legs and arms of the company and do not feel valued. (Maybe 5 or 6 of 100 do)

    I worked at MRP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Base salary sales position. Located in center city, so you can at least escape the horrible open floor plan office for some decent lunch.

    Cons

    Everything. Again, unless you like being treated like a HS student. Examples: no cell phone usage, constant partying & socializing encouraged, bunch of youngins' either fresh out of college or just HS grads that have basic sales experience. RUN unless you are ABSOLUTELY desperate. You will not gain QUALITY sales experience, aside from learning how to cut corners and lie to clients. Only decent sales I could make were...

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding AE's that lie to clients. Also maybe be honest and not call yourselves a software company? MRP is a telemarketing company and "Account Executives" are your disposable sales people.

      Former Employee - Account Executive in Phila, PA

      I worked at MRP full-time

      Pros

      This is a great job to get corporate sales experience coming right from college. I was here for a little less than a year and learned a lot not only about sales but how to continue to motivate myself. They offer help constantly if you're struggling, and everyone's pretty friendly. The potential to make good money is there if you really apply yourself and ask team leads for help. The work environment can be fun considering...

      Cons

      Work/life balance was nonexistent especially with an hour commute. Inconsistency with bonuses/leads. High turnover amongst AE's and management. Sexual misconduct. Making 120+ calls a day gets extremely annoying.

      Pros

      They hire from within. Easy to move around and gain experience. Can make $$$ if you're good at sales.

      Cons

      1. If you're interested in working in tech or marketing, it's not a good place to work. They want so badly to be a software company, but really they invest all their energy into selling the product and very little into actually developing it. This means if you're in Customer Success, Marketing, Data Science, Display, or Product you're going to have a bad time. They'll sell services that the product doesn't do and then...

      Advice to Management

      Hire a creative director and listen to them. Hire a software/product manager and listen to them. Promote more women. The company has great potential but with the same 5 people making decisions it's an echo chamber and it won't adapt to the software/marketing tech landscape.
