    Pros

    Decent salary/benefits package, convenient location

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime, high turnover rates, little to no training or communication, hostile work environment

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat employees as expendable objects to be replaced every 6 months to a year. Spend more time providing training and feedback. Focus on long-term development and improving work/life balance for employees, rather than demanding long hours with mandatory overtime for little recognition or reward.

    Pros

    Work atmophere is diverse. They are an equal opportunity employer.

    Cons

    Senior managment allows employee's limited growth. The office is too small for the number of employees they have.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of letting people grow. They dont want your job just to be successful.

    If you are a professional researcher, get as far away from Luth as possible.

    Pros

    - Located in San Diego. - Free parking (when avail.) - Great facility for other professional research companies to conduct focus groups.

    Cons

    - Although I have no idea what it is like for the phone room/hourly workers, as a salaried professional there is absolutely no way to navigate your career performance - "subjective" at best. - Grossly underpaid, based on industry standards. - Terrible and out-dated methodologies with focus on volume over quality. - Revolving door for employees who realize mistake after joining the company and flee as soon as possible. - Questionable decision making leading to lost business and resources.

    Advice to Management

    Forget billing yourselves as a reputable research organization. Focus on providing facilities for "real" research companies to do business.

    Pros

    Work from home options if needed Friendly staff Flexible working hours, can determine your schedule within reason Comprehensive benefits package

    Cons

    Company management style has not grown with size of company. Tendency to micro-manage. Senior management does not empower staff to lead in the areas where they are subject matter experts. Clear, open and honest communication is not a part of company culture. Heavy politics and lack of information sharing. Little to no growth potential. Salaries not competitive to market rates.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to empower staff to do what they do best. Bureaucratic approval processes prevent progress and limit team effectiveness. First to market is not the goal, first to inflection point is - products should be quality first.

    Pros

    Friendly, diverse people to work with. Offer opportunities to those with criminal backgrounds. Free onsite parking or parking reimbursement. No physical labor.

    Cons

    No fulltime positions. No benefits. Low wages. Managers are inept. Shady practices, hiring those with criminal backgrounds, but easy dismissal. Low quality of equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade the quality of equipment, the quality of training, and the quality of people hired. Hire less people and pay the good employees more, even if commission.

    Pros

    Great second chance opportunity company.

    Cons

    Not good with evaluations and raises

    Advice to Management

    Be more on top of evaluations, employees like to know where they stand. Employees like to feel appreciated more often than showed.
