    I worked at Market Strategies International full-time

    Pros

    Lots of nice people who really want the best for the company. Many individuals with great research expertise.

    Cons

    Suffers from some fairly typical mid-sized company issues in that it doesn't really have the personal, community feel of a small company or the unique character and it doesn't have the high-quality benefits that you tend to get at larger places.

    Pros

    Young and energetic workplace, with a strong northwest coast vibe and the insight to recognize that times are changing in regards to workplace offerings.

    Cons

    While working from home is an option for most, there seemed to be a lack of flexibility among certain departments - specifically within the IT areas.

    Advice to Management

    Things are heading in the right direction.

    I have been working at Market Strategies International part-time

    Pros

    The flexibility of the shifts is great. Once in a shift you can change after 30 days or keep forever. A diverse work group, it's fun and everyone is respectful to each other. Open door policy with the managers....you can drop by and talk anytime. It is what it is....a part-time job.

    Cons

    No benefits for part-time workers.

    Advice to Management

    Make everyone full-time with benefits.

    Pros

    This is a company that really puts effort into hiring good people and teaching them how to be great researchers. They really train you to do well in your current position and help you understand how to get to the next level. They hire out of good programs and help those hired in grow through their career with the company. I have had good managers and I think leadership is doing a good job in a tough market. I have never worked at a place that values their employees and the work they do more than this company.

    Cons

    Benefits aren't great now but hopefully will improve in the next year or so.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer positive feedback and recognition for good work and listen to your employees. A good work environment goes a long way in encouraging people to do their best work possible. Continue to find new training opportunities to help analysts increase their technical skills and RMs to improve in their day-to-day management skills.

    Pros

    I liked working with MSI. My team was dedicated and really enjoyed the work. We made some long lasting relationships and did very well while we were together.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was stressful. Keeping clients happy was sometimes tough, but we managed to be able to keep most people happy.

    Advice to Management

    Do it again!!
