    I have been working at Market America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hard working people make for a great company. You have people that really care about growing the business and you see it everyday in their productivity and collaboration with others. Competitive pay with great benefits. I love my ability to collaborate with so many divisions. Also, during the COVID-19 pandemic, our COO, without hesitation, formulated a plan to keep all employees safe and employed, while continuing to produce in-demand products for our consumers. Job well done

    Cons

    We only get to see our business owners 1-2 times per year. When you see their excitement and passion for the business, it helps my team (us) to understand their 'why' even the more.

    Pros

    Nice enough "co-business owners" Products are not bad

    Cons

    -Leaders promise you will get money back and then leave you on your own..clueless on what to do to make it back. -Meetings are cult-like and they preach that if you want to make it market america it is the only thing on your mind -mention financial freedom on your own time except in order to make any money it takes almost all of your free time

    Market America management is easy to work with and the warm staff keeps you motivated. Vacations and days off are part of the reasonable work schedule they offer. The networking training program is one of the best. A competitive and productive company that brings out the best in you.

    I have been working at Market America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    My twenty-six plus years, associated with Market America has been my most rewarding experiences ever. The main factor for this, as I saw it, was the companionable and entrepreneurial personalities and policy implementation of it. Always a great place to work and if you have the drive to succeed, you can make it big.

    Cons

    It is a competitive market and it takes time to learn the skills needed to succeed.

    Pros

    The managers always listened to me. While problems sometimes took a while to fix, I always felt like they were doing their best to help and make the work environment good for everyone. Also, my fellow employees were good people to work with and friendly.

    Cons

    There were often technological problems with our systems, such as email crashes, but I believe this is common in a lot of places. Also, it would have been good if my pay was slightly higher.
