    I have been working at IBISWorld full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    IBISWorld has a great work culture - prizing efficiency & excellent work product while trying to provide a reasonable work-life balance. Working at the firm provides a recent college grad an opportunity to apply & learn market research techniques that will be useful in a professional business field for many years.

    Cons

    A place for improvement can be the office decor. Its very plain with the walls painted white, no art displays, and lacks a clock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A great firm to work for and very privileged to do so. Yet, I would strongly encourage tackling the issue of office decor. As current academic research points out that it can have a positive influence on the productivity of workers.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email the next day about an interview. I setup the time with the recruiter and two days later we spoke in-depth in regards to my experience and education. When I told her my former company went under, she laughed, and then said "sorry, I guess it's not funny that you were laid off". Furthermore, she had the English vernacular of a 5th grader. I almost felt bad for her. In addition, she wasn't even prepared for the interview, she said "oh wait, what's your name again?" and then proceeded to scrummage in silence while she tried to redeem herself. When I asked what the company culture was, she paused and said "umm... hold on, and then started reading from their benefits package! I asked for culture, not whether you have medical and dental.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no routine interview questions, other than "what did you do at this job, that job" etc. when clearly my qualifications and MBA were stated on my resume.

      The bottom line here is that this company clearly doesn't know what they're doing. Please be very cautious.
