    I have been working at Benenson Strategy Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Few or no general office tasks
    -You can learn a lot if you want to
    -Great people
    -Plenty of exposure to both political and corporate work
    -Snacks and monthly office party

    Cons

    -The internship does provide good initial training, but lacks structure after than. This is not really problematic but it is something they should work on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Ensuring that all the interns are good takes more than 1 phone interview and a brief writing test

    I worked at Benenson Strategy Group full-time

    Pros

    Great learning environment; co. trains all new employees thoroughly. Collaborative atmosphere amongst analysts and upper management. Excellent benefits and company regularly has small events in-office for staff.

    Cons

    Management does not communicate clearly, communication is touted as transparent but is not. Office environment can be very tense at times. Staff is frequently changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach: keep an open, transparent dialogue. Don't leave staff guessing and stressing.

    Pros

    They do good work
    You will learn a lot about market research
    Very nice office at 777 third

    Cons

    They spend wayyyyy too much on perks and tricking (i.e. 15K plug and play table, 1K chairs each) but have below average bonuses and salaries, FAR below for the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise your pay at all levels
