    I have been working at MarketStar part-time

    Pros

    Quick paced, perks, tech heavy, people are very nice.

    Cons

    Communication from supervisors were pretty bad, I had to wing it a few times on how to push a product a few times because info wasn't shared on a new product. But since I'm a tech nerd, it made it easier to hit numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Communication but with a huge effort to keep employees up to date.

    -Unstable: you never know will a contract will end so you could be moving around to different postions more than once a year
    - Cut Christmas bonus in half a few years ago
    -Raises are next to impossible without moving to a new position - and even sometimes that’s a lateral move

  9. "Great Job if you like doing sales"

    Pros

    The Pinterest team is taken care of. There's a fully stocked break room, company parties,etc. The bonus structure is also pretty great. Plenty of time off and understanding of family emergencies.

    Cons

    If you don't like working sales, this is not the job the job for you. In the end, they do care about the amount of revenue you bring in and that pressure is always put on you.

    Pros

    They are always hiring, they have fun perks such as movie days and treats when you come in

    Cons

    You have multiple supervisors, most do not work together and give you different goals, no chance to move up or get a raiseunless you change teams and can get laid off at any time as part of your contract

    Advice to Management

    stand behind your employees and don't make them feel like a product
