This is not the same MSI

Manager (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I worked at Market Strategies International full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI liked working with MSI. My team was dedicated and really enjoyed the work. We made some long lasting relationships and did very well while we were together.

ConsSometimes it was stressful. Keeping clients happy was sometimes tough, but we managed to be able to keep most people happy.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo it again!!

Comprehensive exposure to market research; lacks defined career trajectory for most roles .

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Portland, OR (US)

I worked at Market Strategies International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAll functional roles work closely together at all levels, promoting a solid team-oriented culture.

Flat organization with a few exceptions.

Supportive HR and training initiatives.

Process, process, process, a must-have for an organization with multiple functional roles working together.

Data management better than other firms, but definitely has plenty of room for improvement.

ConsPromotions rare outside of client management roles.

Large salary disparities within individual functional roles.

Outsourcing data management and other roles diminishes deliverable quality and follow through.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote staff more frequently, especially star performers. Verbal merits only go so far. Provide staff with more constructive feedback to promote effective skill building and creative solutions to career paths.

Good place to work

Study Director (Former Employee)
Livonia, MI (US)

I worked at Market Strategies International

ProsA good solid company to work for. Some departments are better than others to work in depending on the people. This company has been acquiring other companies so the number of employees has increased significantly.

ConsJob security is a problem with the growing pains they are experiencing with the move to a new corportate office, acquisitions and hiring practices.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep in mind the need for support staff to facilitate the work that is done for clients. It is difficult to deliver excellent results sometimes.
