    I have been working at Market Strategies International full-time

    Pros

    Depending on the manager, you can work from home some days. That is pretty much it.

    Cons

    Highly political environment and promotions are based on friends promoting friends model so plenty of unqualified managers who don't know how to manage and can barely use basic MR tools such as SPSS. Managers are self serving and "add value" by escalating issues so it is a CYA type of culture. If you aren't in a sales role, you don't count even though you are expected to work 60 hours a week. There is no training for staff unless you are in Sales ("Client Manager"). Constant turnover and layoffs creating heavy workloads for those remaining. Company likes to hire people straight out of school but no real, meaningful training so lots of issues and stress. Would only recommend this firm to someone who is laid off. This isn't a place to join if you are looking for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of placing pressure on the "doers" you really need to start looking at those who are in leadership IG roles not delivering what they have promised.
