It’s a family of friends, not just a company.
“This is my first job out of school, and most of my coworkers are like-minded and my age, giving me a great network of friends. Once a month we all get together on the ‘Lunch Bus’ and meet people from other teams.”
You get the chance to apply your POV.
“I told our president my ideas and opinions about our website. He saw enough value in them that I was put onto the senior team developing it.”
Investing in everyone.
“From the initial Immersion sessions to apprenticeship training and the case study sessions run by the CEO, there are enormous opportunities for development.”
We’re diverse in many ways, and that’s our strength.
“(For example), I came from publishing…including a very fun and wild 4-year stint at the Japanese comics publisher TOKYOPOP.”
“so what?” is really part of our DNA.
“I analyze problems and give clients clear, actionable advice in a report that’s simple, focused, and, most important, useful.”
We’re recognized – and rewarded.
“I’ve been promoted twice in two years and see no obstacle, aside from myself, to accelerating as quickly as I choose to.”
Instantly involved, immediately rewarded.
“In London I was instantly involved in multiple projects with clients from different industries; after six months I was promoted.”
We put a premium on brainpower.
“I have an MA in Legal and Political Theory, and an MSc in Demography and Public Health. Both of these - analysing a problem and then applying statistical techniques to solve it – are what I do for my clients every day.”
Hitting goals reaps esteem.
“On my first project I helped one of the worlds’ most important brands understand British soccer fans. I personally received positive client feedback that reached our CEO. Not a bad start.”
Hard work pays off.
“I joined LRW in an entry level position seven years ago. Since then I’ve been continually challenged to do my best. Now I am partnering with someone to start a new Business Unit.”
We enjoy ever-changing challenges.
“I work on a variety of client issues across a range of industries and have had an evolving role with increasing responsibility. The changing needs of clients, keeps everything fresh.”
Passing the success along to others.
“The most rewarding part of my job? Paying it forward. I’m privileged to mentor others as they reach for their goals. It’s awesome to help others succeed.”
Where a seasoned pro can make their mark.
“I’m proud of being able to create a successful new business unit for LRW just over a year after joining the firm.”
A place set apart.
“LRW feels different from anywhere else: take our ability to be nimble and adaptive; how we innovate, communicate and relate to each other...”
Surprised and impressed.
“The best part for me, after joining LRW in a senior role, is the tremendous talent and passion here. The fantastic job so many of our people do on our work over and over again makes my life as a General Manager so much easier, because the clients are so often delighted with what we deliver.”
From entry level to the top. You can do it.
“I started as a Research Assistant fresh out of college, and now I run my own business inside of the larger LRW.”
There’s a real commitment to entrepreneurship.
“Our model lets me run my own company within the company. I am supported with a deep bench of high-caliber resources. I would never consider doing anything else.”
We strive. We drive. We achieve.
“People here are committed to our vision – of growth, of inspired standards, of being the absolute best at what we do.”
What drives the leaders of "so what®"?
Our best-in-class leadership consistently leads their teams to deliver real impact on client business needs, thanks to their amazing talents and backgrounds and drive.

I have been working at Lieberman Research Worldwide as an intern (less than an year)Pros
The people is what sets this place apart from other research firms. It allows room to have your personality convey within the company. You can bring in headphones to listen while working.Cons
The projects you're working in varies from different teams. If you want to work on a high-end project within a specific industry of your choice, but are on a different team that doesn't do it, then that's too bad. You should specify what industry you want, but regardless they put you in departments that need more hires. As any other research-based firm, the material and work can get a bit dry and boring.Doesn't RecommendPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
