    I have been working at Market Strategies International part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is super nice and the job is fun, it has very flexible hours and right now is offering full time hours! I think that everyone should give it a go! You won't regret it one bit. People are very considerate and it does offer room to grow... pay raise after 90 days = 75 cents.

    Cons

    Pay starts out at 8 bucks an hour wish it was better compensation. I dont see this as being bad as it weeds out the baddies:)

    Pros

    This company is full of a lot of hard working people. Employees are treated like adults and are expected to get their jobs done. Great teamwork, lots of people willing to help and advise. Some really phenomenal leaders.

    Cons

    There are a few tough personalities and the benefits could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Continue weeding out those who don't fit or detract from others being able to do their jobs. Continue to refine ISO processes.

    I worked at Market Strategies International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learned something new every day, worked on high profile projects. A good "bridge" or second job. Staff is usually hired from a well-educated pool of applicants.

    Cons

    Not a place to plan for a career unless you are promoted to management.

    Advice to Management

    If you're the same as I remember, don't change a thing!

    The people at Market Strategies are great people, some of the best I have ever worked with. There is always something to do as a change of pace. If I was in a different spot in my life, I would have never left. The work/life balance is a great part of Market Strategies.

    My manager was excellent. I have never had a more understanding, flexible and knowledgeable boss as I did at Market Strategies. One of a kind!!!

    "A culture of smart, ethically-centered people"

    Pros

    There are a lot of really smart, committed, forward-thinking people in this organization--and, given the relatively entrepreneurial culture, it is possible to change the company by getting out in front of an initiative and pushing hard. The quality of the work being done here is truly a cut--and often several cuts--above what's going on in other parts of the industry. Finally (and this may sound weird, in these times), this is a company that really has an ethical center. There is a kind of old-world probity to the way that the company is managed and the way people treat their work.

    Cons

    The company is certainly in more of a growth mode than it has been historically--and growth inevitably means change. So far, those changes have been good changes, but that's something that requires constant care and feeding. The concern is that senior management continue to stay focused on the right kinds of strategic growth for the company--and communicate the growth plan (if and as it changes) to everyone throughout the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work hard at listening to employees throughout the organization--not just listening to senior managers. Continue the ongoing focus on quality and ethical standards. Keep focused on long-term strategic vision, not quarterly financials (which, so far, has not been an issue...but is always a bit of a worry when you're majority-owned by a private equity company).

    Pros

    autonomy enabling me andf others explore and grow in the direction we choose. management foster this behaviour and thus encourages employees grotwh

    Cons

    not large enough to make a different, in order to be able to make a name for ourselves we need to be larger

    Advice to Management

    sales have to be increased, service and solutions have to be defined and marketing to a strategic prospect list of companies
