    I have been working at Market America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of things I love is working at Market America. This company values good employees.
    Since graduated from university, I worked for 4 companies. No to mentioned that I started work with different teams on many projects since I were a high school student in ASIA.

    I join this company since a temp (yes, a temp), then with company keep growing, I got the promotions and got chances to work with many great people in many functions of this company. Till now I have been working in Market America family over 11 years.

    It is not only a job. Market America is like a University. By working with many great people in Market America, I learned various knowledge and skills. I learned a lot of knowledge include, cutting edge techs, creative business models, healthy/nutrition knowledge, fashion/cosmetic knowledge, website building, FinTech, Warehouse & International shipping knowledge, Mobile Commerce, social media/digital marketing, communication & relationship building skill, and what the true Leadership it is from great leaders in market america.

    Also, I got many sense of achievements (and I believe many market america teammates have same feeling too). This company and its management team encourage innovations. Over the years Market America keep invest a lot on building various commerce platforms with creative business models & cutting edge techs.

    Sometimes the innovations from this company lead the industry and even change the thinking of a whole industry in a country, for example Taiwan (you can google it with market america and TW famous magazine names, like BusinessToday, GQ Taiwan, Vogue Taiwan..).
    One of exciting things here is: A brilliant idea happened in Market America can become the great innovation to change people life quickly and even turn it to a trending among people’s mouths. Why this company has the power to make these great things happen? That is because Market America is running membership with millions members and distributors. This company has the people power to duplicate the successful concepts and innovations. To the employees and their brilliant idea, Market America is a place to stand on and move the world. When I look at what we accomplish, I feel a sense of pride.

    Besides, Market America SHOP.COM is an omnichannel. It benefits each employee includes our family daily life necessities because Market America has many awesome branding products and +20 million consumption-products from +10,000 affiliated merchants in global markets. This company got great products and we can have great deals for daily life necessities and shopping.

    Cons

    None. I have no complaints.a lot of knowledge to learn.

    Pros

    The employees you will find here are some of the best people I've had the opportunity to work with. I've been given many opportunities for advancement during my time here. The heath benefits are some of the best around and having an on-ste Nurse has been a real asset. Executive Management Members are very approachable on any issues and they all have an open door policy when it comes to any concerns. Great opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    There can be long hours at times, but that comes with my field of work, so not necessarily a Con toward the Company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep offering opportunites for advancement for your employees. There are some talented individuals in the Company.

    Pros

    There are many great opportunities within the company. The company has opened up so many countries, and doing very well. I cannot imagine 10 years from now, and Market America can be top 100 companies in the country. My direct and indirect bosses always encourage me, and it keeps me moving forward to be the best I can be.
    I have a great group of co-workers to work with, and I do feel lucky.
    The healthcare is wonderful.
    I do not think that I can find any better place to work.

    Cons

    My job can be very challenging, but it's what I like.

    I have been working at Market America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I'm not sure I can come up with 20 words? I have worked here for a few years now and they do pay very well, but they have to, to keep people. Co-workers are nice and everyone bands together to help each other make it through the day.

    Cons

    Abusive and hostile work environment. Management is explosive. Yelling, screaming and calling people names. There's no communication and there's no transparency. Little employee development and opportunities to grow. The company doesn't care about the employee or their "UFOs" in the pyramid. They simply want them to earn them more money to buy more houses and cars, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and focus less on yourself and what went wrong and look for positive outcomes, ways to learn from mistakes and grow as a company. You may be the senior leaders, but you don't know everything. And please don't ask people to post positive reviews here to make it look like a better place to work than it really is. Shame!

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

    Pros

    There is nothing good about this place. However, They have some good people there but it so sad they allowed themselves to be verbally abused by upper management.

    Cons

    The worst company I have ever worked for in my 20+Year of my professional career. They are very unprofessional verbally abused their employees take advantage of them by making it mandatory to work their two conventions which should be voluntary not mandatory.

    Advice to Management

    Hire professional management to run the company. Quality is better than Quantity. One should be qualified and have experience in their position or at least have some knowledge of what they're doing.
