Strong management in tough times

Research Director (Former Employee)

I worked at Market Strategies International

ProsDuring the difficult year of 2009, upper management did everything they could to retain talented employees, including giving themselves pay cuts and instituting furlough days rather than pay cuts in the lower ranks.

ConsPretty hierarchical, low entry level salaries, difficult to advance. Needs more family-oriented female leadership.

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.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to update the technology. Need to have a more defined plan. Need to have a more defined career path
