    I worked at Market Strategies International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid well. Remote work is an option.

    Cons

    Senior level, especially key management not in touch with day-to-day business and employees. Individual goals and career advancement not outlined nor clear. Work environment extremely negative as the culture was nonexistent. Not a team environment. Everyone looking out for themselves and often throwing others 'under the bus.' Very petty and political. Glad to be gone.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at who is running your IGs. Won't have to dig too deep to uncover the reason for diminished sales and high turnover.

    Pros

    you had schedule options and they were set, no not knowing one week from the next. Great if you're in school.
