    Pros

    Highly diverse workforce -- great for old/young, various races/ethnicities, various genders and orientations, and so on. Commitment to high quality work products and client satisfaction. Transparent evaluation system. Employee owned business means that good corporate performance translates into employee bonuses, share distributions, etc.

    Cons

    Relatively low pay for non-statisticians. Because of client base, must conform strictly to federal requirements -- some may find too bureaucratic. Provision of research data without evaluation of implications and development of recommendations can be frustrating.
