    Pros

    Good Vacation Benefits. Easy place to work

    Cons

    Not good pay, to much upper management eats all the profit or chance for pay raises. Poor training

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of half of your management. They don't do anything and take all the profit to pay the real people who work. Quit hiring so many inexperienced people.

    Pros

    Opportunity for entry level sales experience

    Cons

    Max salaries won't support a family. Very flat organization, no movement past low level management.

    Advice to Management

    Value professional experience gained outside of the walls of Marketstar. Channel sales is NOT rocket science, but to Marketstar executives the only value recognized is what you have done inside their organization. You are missing talent, by simply refusing to look.

    Pros

    Pretty chill environment, decently priced snacks. Good flexibility. Laptops provided. Managers are cool. Holidays payed off and a few other days for service and movies.

    Cons

    If you’re looking for job security or a promotion path I’d look elsewhere. None of their contracts are guaranteed to last. Seems like companies are coming and going. They seem to just move reps from one team to another. Pretty much making you start over again. I have no expectations from marketstar and don’t expect anything anytime soon. I don’t see a real career blossoming here. Honestly just try to work for the company who’s team you are already on. No incentive to push more product for your team. Capped commission.

    Advice to Management

    On boarding process is very shaky. A lot of problems when we first started. Fix it.

    Pros

    Family friendly, Pretty good benefits, good place to launch a career.

    Cons

    Low pay. Since they work as a SaaS (sales as a service) everything is on contract and pay is way lower than average.

    Advice to Management

    work on getting pay in line! and quit with advancing only younger people to management. Those of us with a work history can be better managers in most cases!!!

    Pros

    great trainers and teammates who generally care about the work they're doing

    Cons

    worked here for a few yrs, they treat people like expendable components - warm bodies to be thrown about when they have projects available. Otherwise you're an expense they don't care about no matter what you've done for/with them over the years.

    Advice to Management

    your favoritism of certain employees who haven't grown in 15 yrs is apparent and a cause for concern to everyone from staff to clients. Focus on employee development instead of just speaking about it
