    I have been working at MarketStar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I get bored easily, and I've never been bored here. There is always something new, which is the essence of an "agency" type model of outsourced sales teams. There is always a new team getting started, a new client. I've also built of solid list of skills just from the day to day and all the different tasks I've been given. This place is a great starter for a career -- especially when you can work for such huge brands and stay home in Ogden.

    Cons

    Teams come and go. That's the nature of an outsourced agency, clients pack up and leave. It sucks to see it happen, but it happens. The great thing is when clients go away, they try and place the affected reps FIRST. There are always openings, and people almost always get placed.

    Advice to Management

    The family leave (maternity) could be better, but the family dedication is great. Never stop having family be a part of the core values. It's awesome.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Amazing co-workers and leaders. Culture is great. MarketStar cares about employees and their families. Work life balance is fantastic.

    Cons

    Pay is not always competitive with other employers.

    Advice to Management

    I understand that pay will not always be competitive because of the outsourcing model. Keep the focus on culture to maintain top talent.

    I worked at MarketStar full-time

    Pros

    Great communication between my team members and area manager. I was lucky enough to have a manager that cared to bring us together, bond, and help each other out. It was an on-field position so contact was important to keep and we did the best we could with it.

    Cons

    They might not be very honest - there is a current lawsuit against them for the way they paid us. However, in regards to the people I worked with, management, and training - I cannot complain.

    Pros

    Great company. There are managers here that truly care about your growth personally and professionally. If you do your job and find ways to contribute to your team you’ll rarely have any issues. There is such a focus on family that the company has great benefits and PTO, they really want you to know that your family is important.

    Cons

    Little opportunity to move into management positions, because of how great the company is people tend to stick around. That creates the issue of movement within the organization. To move up you’ll bounce around from contract to contract.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to keep the vales of the company top of mind. Sometime in the day to day hustle of work these values get lost.
