    I have been working at Eastern Research Group, Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at this company are great. The company actually "walks the walk" in regard to environmental issues. Generally a really good atmosphere to work in.

    Cons

    The compensation package is very weak for comparable positions. Annual raises and bonuses don't match what was stated in the interview and are low. The only place this is decent is that they provide 6% profit sharing as an annual contribution to 401k. It can be a challenging place for any growth. Since it's a small company there frequently isn't any room for employee promotion or growth.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate your compensation model, you are losing qualified people who like the company and their coworkers simply because of the money.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Eastern Research Group, Inc..

    Interview

    The process of getting an interview was relatively straightforward, and about a week or 2 after submitting an application online, I was asked to come into the offices for a 1-on-1 interview. The interview itself was typical, followed by an editing portion at the end (because of the nature of the position I was applying for). People in the office were very kind and personable, but it was very disappointing that after coming for an in-person interview, there was no follow up from anyone in the company even to say that the position had been filled.
