    I have been working at MarketStar full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone at market is super friendly. They hire heavily based on personality and culture fit.

    The managers(I've had two) are all great - their bosses are great too. The management, even up through mid and senior level, make an effort to be on a first name basis with you.

    The management is also career oriented - even if your skills gained take you elsewhere.

    Cons

    The pay is a little low - they acknowledge this. Though the pro here is that they truly do care about you as a person and if that takes you to somewhere with better pay then they will help you to that place.

    Advice to Management

    I personally have had no problems. I would just suggest finding a way to structure funding in technical departments to allow for better salaries. You'd end up retaining talent for a very very long time if so.

    Pros

    Good benefits and People. Many perks working here overall. Employees are appreciated.

    Cons

    Contract work can feel like 6 months at a time. Could lose contract anytime.
    Can feel like any warm body would do. Everyone on my team makes about the same $.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make Marketstar a great place to work. Improve Benefits even more and pay higher salaries to the top performers. Account Executives are overburdened with responsibilities and is not look desirable for the employees to aspire to management.

    Pros

    Great company to get some professional work experience to add to your resume, benefits are better than other places as well.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up, you will always be under-offered while interviewing or pushing for a raise, quota will always go up so this company's ROI for its clients goes up.

    Advice to Management

    Don't offer the possibility of raises/promotions when you have no intention of following through. Quit putting unqualified power-hungry, degrading people into management. Choose someone that's Qualified NOT that is a good looking BS-er that the team hates. You are losing so much good talent that wants to stay but refuses to work under someone who is incompetent and a morale killer.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work as a representative for Fortune 500 companies.

    Cons

    Low pay. Employees receive a fraction of the pay direct sales employees make at most of the companies. Focus on number of calls and time on phone rather than adding value to the client.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training and focus on value added to the customer not just arbitrary stats.

    Pros

    Marketstar provides an incredible opportunity to work closely with some of the largest and fastest growing companies in the US. With a high focus on employee development, it is a great place to learn.

    Cons

    Topside at Marketstar is limited for someone wanting to stay with the company. Salaries are competitive for the home base in Ogden Utah, but are not always competitive for employees in other areas of the country. A lot of this depends on which client you are working for.
