    Current Employee - Client Services Associate in Northbrook, IL

    I have been working at MarketsandMarkets full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive Pay Pretty Good Benefits Entrepreneurial Culture

    Cons

    Loose Company Structure Roles Can Be More Clearly Defined

    Advice to Management

    The ideas and models are great, but the company can benefit tremendously from better internal communication. Some changes are not always thoroughly explained to all teams and can cause hiccups that can create some internal struggles. By establishing a more unified, and thorough method or platform for our communication, the company will be able to succeed that much more.

    Pros

    -The company is growing at a fast rate under the new COO. This is especially true in terms of organization. While there is often a lack of internal communication at times, the trend is overall positive during my time here, and the management is actively addressing this issue. -Great exposure to senior, experienced leadership. Since the North America office is growing, but still a smaller team, we have access to advice...

    Cons

    -As we are still establishing ourselves in the US, we are not a "name brand." Thus we struggle to gain credibility in the eyes of the clients before they get to know us. Unfortunately, there is probably the stereotype of an Indian company as well. However, our leadership and the Client Services team is actively working on changing this perception and become more of a partner to our clients. -Often a lack of transparency...

    Advice to Management

    -Focus more on the welfare of your employees. More self-improvement and better job training. -Improve organizational structure (which is being addressed) -Invest more into the research side, as this is the backbone of our company. If we do this we can really take off and become a billion dollar company!

    I have been working at MarketsandMarkets full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Absolutely none, perhaps except the fact that you’ll learn what it’s like to be at the most dysfunctional backwards company that has ever existed.

    Cons

    CEO is an evil knit wit with absolutely zero business acumen and treats all employees in India like slaves, sadly he tried to apply the same tactics on the US and it backfired in his face and instead of admitting his faults he hires an even less competent COO who is an utter failure. New COO is relentless in his pursuit of treating everyone like crap and hating their jobs, in the US theirs has been 90+% attrition within...

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending , this is all An illusion, this company is terrible and the product is lacking , the research is all fraud and the CEO is a fraud. Either hire actual professionals to take full reigns of the operation or quit while your ahead!

    I worked at MarketsandMarkets full-time

    Pros

    None that I can think of--other than the employees I worked with in the US--unfortunately or fortunately all are on the better positions.

    Cons

    The CEO is the most incompetent business and people manager I have known in my long career. The new COO is equally incompetent and lacks basic people skills. I would highly recommend any one considering this company to look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Replace both the CEO and COO with business people who know what tghey are doing. Even though, they got some private euqity funding, I would receommend that the private equity company reconsider their investment.

    I worked at MarketsandMarkets full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    There are no pros to working for this company.

    Cons

    The company's ability to execute and their stated vision do not match. The amount of personnel churn is astounding. (almost 100% in the US) The CEO has no experience and is totally unprepared to lead any sort of business.

    Advice to Management

    Not necessary. The culture of this company is not to question or clarify, just obey. Advice to management would not only fall on deaf ears, it would be totally ignored.

    I have been working at MarketsandMarkets full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The existing fellow US employees.

    Cons

    India based culture which has shown to be very negative and driven by fear and consequence. India teams continuously poach US deals without consequence (with more praise). High turnover - Over 50 hired in US last 12 months and less than 50% still remain. Since joining, quotas have gone up, hours have gone up, support has decreased, pay has decreased and value proposition has become more unclear. Expected to work 9hr/day...

    Advice to Management

    Gain a better understanding of US best practices on treating your employees. Don't treat your employees as if they are second class.

    I worked at MarketsandMarkets full-time

    Pros

    Majority of the employees in North America work form home. Received 56 million from investors so financially stable for now.

    Cons

    CEO micro manages and managers in USA are of no value. Quotas are very high and 1 of 20 reps lasted one year so turnover is very high and research not good quality.

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to fire USA managers; don't provide much value to the sales teams.

      Pros

      Used to have high starting salaries, The senior VP's in charge of North America have great experience

      Cons

      This is a churn and burn company. They brought on many highly skilled people and over the course of a year got them to build out their contacts in industry verticals, then they issued ultimatums each month to different sales people, that if they did not sell they would be fired. I'd like to point out the targets being requested were higher than any one person had manged to sell in the company at all. Mid level sales management...

      Pros

      Good place to grow, learn and explore. Being a big company, you have lots of places to try out your hand to. If your performance record proves that you are good, you do not get challenged.

      Cons

      Dual reporting structure makes you feel you belong nowhere

      Advice to Management

      Overall management is good.
