    I worked at Cornerstone Research full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Your Excel skills will be amazing, and you will develop these and analytical abilities very quickly. The reason you'll develop so quickly is because you will work double the hours of your friends working 9 to 5-7, believe me when I say no matter how hardcore you think you are for acing college exams, this isn't worth it (assuming you're not in mgmt. consulting or I-Banking getting mad money for doing it).

    The only reason I'd recommend this job to someone is if they're from a no-name school and they are able to get an offer. It will boost your resume for a decent MBA program, but if you have any other opportunities it's not worth it.

    Cons

    1. I was told I would work 50 hours average a week, this was a lie, I rarely worked less than 70.
    2. There is a "Overtime Bonus" to compensate people for all their extra hours worked, it's a joke, the people that worked the most that I knew got about the equivalent of one paycheck.

    With these tiny "Overtime Bonusses" it is very much in management's favor to have analysts work overtime instead of hiring new analysts... my prediction is that this is unsustainable because talented people recognize that they should get paid for their work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop selling the job as something it's not, also, stop searching out the employees who leave bad reviews on Glassdoor and making them take them down, yes, CR does do that.
