I have been working at Aberdeen Group full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The people that work here (not the management)

Cons

How much time you got?

At least two more years till this place is functional if Harte-Hanks doesn't dump it first.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Top sales performers do not make Top Managers. There are some good people here who are wasting their talents promote the right ones. Get a new GM

    Pros

    Great people to work with...this is the biggest benefit
    A culture open to change. As with all analyst firms, change is constant. Here, you can take advantage of it. Management will let anyone step up and then reward them.
    Great ability to move up if you show the willingness to take risks

    Cons

    Still a little muddled in its relationship to Harte-Hanks, but getting better
    Still trying to live down the reputation it got from 2004-2007....both internally and externally. Things have only gotten better. Management willing to shut things down that aren't working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue pushing the change that is needed. Don't avoid the sacred cows.

    Pros

    Management has been upping their level of communication with the larger pool of employees, especially in the areas of communicating their strategic objectives for the year as well as developing plans and communicating how we are going to tackle these objectives. It's been consistent and to me has made a big change in the day-to-day vibe around the office. We all know what we are expected to contribute and what's needed - I like the clarity of direction and the transparency.

    Cons

    Transition is good and bad - I personally am motivated by it - to me, it means opportunity. However, there's been turnover in Sales that has been caused by this transition (as our business objectives have changed and we've started selling different mixes of products to the market and redefined who we are). If you aren't comfortable in an environment that's fluid - this might not be the place for you - but I really like the changes I've seen - so I'm staying put.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communication - it's fostering the development of a better culture and a better place to work day-to-day.
