    Smart employees, a couple of bullies, terrible workflow processes.

    Pros

    Smart, hard working coworkers. Good location. Free food. Pretty generous overall compensation, vacation policy, etc.

    Cons

    Strong focus on sales incentivizes questionable, unethical behaviors. If you are a strong seller you will be regarded as a star, even though you may bully your employees, be borderline verbally abusive and completely disregard their work-life balance. This may be more true of certain offices - some of the leadership in Boston fall under this category. Those responsible for workflow often have no clue about the nature of the actual work or the capabilities of those they manage. Unfortunately, they are left managing a herd of fresh out of college millenials who don't know what they are doing (not their fault). Experience should be valued a little bit more. Leadership in the US Employee research group is dismal: worst case of not practicing what they preach. Again, bullying behaviors there that should be investigated by HR.

    Advice to Management

    Align yourself with the marketplace. "Strategy" means nothing to clients. Work on your name recognition: founded in 1938 and no one knows who you are. Stop rewarding bullying behavior. Bring in experienced workers: three people with no experience (as cheap as they may be) cannot replace or do the work of an experienced researcher.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ORC International in January 2015.

    Interview

    Reached out to recruiter on LinkedIn. Had a phone interview. Then did an assessment. Then about a month later I was invited to an on-site interview. I met two hiring managers and the HR manager. I also had to do a 90-minute writing assessment at their office. Three days later I found out I was rejected.
