I worked at Market Strategies International full-time for more than 10 yearsPros
Smart people and opportunities to work with major clients. Casual dress code and reasonable work from home policies.Cons
Just fired their third C-level (counting MSQ among these) person in a year hoping to re-org their way out of stagnated growth. Major shifts in HR since 2012 created big disruptions but I'm sure this recent re-org will fix everything,
Oh and benefits are pitiful. No retirement match, no annual bonuses paid in the last 4 years.
On the spot bonuses of $50 to $500 take 4 month to process.
Vacation time is accrued even though time off summary treats it as a lump allocation which can cause confusion.
C-level staff gets more than double the vacation time of the average cubicle dweller.
If you don't sell, you don't matter.RecommendsNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
