    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.

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

    Pros

    Central location.
    Food trucks.
    Casual dress code.
    Relatively easy work.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency between employees and upper management.
    Uncertainty whether your team's contract will renew.
    Lackluster health insurance options.
    Cramped office space.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a little bit of notice, or shoot, even an apology when their bonuses get cut in half due to an SOW change so they don't have the rug pulled out from under them. Leaving them wondering why they only received $1500 of a bonus that was supposed to be $3000.

    Be more transparent regarding relationships with the team your employees do work for. We have no idea how those relationships are going most of the time aside from a yearly QBR.
