    Pros

    You never get face time with the CEO/Sr. Exec. VP. That's both a pro and con.

    Cons

    The self absorbed senior executive Vice President of the company talks down to her employees and never makes time for them either. She doesn't care if you leave and never gives positive feedback ever. Don't even bother working here - it's a waste of your time and career. There's no room for growth either.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the executive team is a family member of the CEO and Senior Exec. VP. They employ their family members. Huge red flag.

    Pros

    Great medical benefits, onsite nurse, 401k match, wide range of technology and markets to experience many different interests, good people.

    Cons

    Too many focuses at one time. Purchase process is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and keep focus. Make it fun and people will engage and grow

    Pros

    Fantastic coworkers and you're really able to see the difference you can make in the company with your contributions. I've grown quite a bit since joining the MA team. Top notch benefits and an onsite health clinic!

    Cons

    Around event times the workload can get pretty hectic but when you get to experience these events in person you see what you're working towards.

    Advice to Management

    identify a few employees from each department who can help foster a more cohesive unit between all of the core areas of the business so that we can plan and execute better.

    Pros

    Market America has been a great company to work for. As an employee of MA for 2+ years, the company and management have proven to provide growth and job security. In addition, the company offers competitive salaries, great benefits and the work hours are accommodating.

    Cons

    Market America could improve by providing a more reasonable amount of PTO/Sick/Vacation time to their employees.


  7. "Great Experience"

    Pros

    Family owned business with great employees. There are individual teams around the company but everyone comes together to make it a great place to work. The management team is pretty awesome too. Not too many COO'S are approachable but with Marc Ashley, he always make time to chat with the employees. And there's room for growth.

    Cons

    Outside of the occasional shouting, which happens at every company I can't really think of cons.

    Advice to Management

    Support and build your employees up. They do a excellent job. A little gratitude and respect goes a long way.

    Pros

    Fun job, OK salary, good benefits

    Cons

    The environment is unpredictable and unreliable. Turnover is rampant. Long-term strategy is overlooked in order to make a quick buck - whether that is at an internal or external expense.
    Boss was very unfair. She would have us come in at 9AM or 10AM and she would come in at 3PM, almost the end of the workday, without communicating anything to us. Gossip is too much. Boss would send a ton of emails at 12 midnight onwards because that's when she works best.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Value them as much as you could because they are the ones running your business.
