Current Employee - Quantitative Research Analyst in Burlingame, CA

I have been working at Acumen full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Provides good programming skills for aspiring health researchers. Some of the best office coffee I've ever had. Work appears to have a very direct impact.

Cons

Less than market value salary, so-so benefits, unprofessional and overly-casual work environment, little room for professional growth aside from some very specific programming skills. Office building is drab and provides few lunch options nearby.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time to provide more of an introductory background of projects before throwing your employees straight into crunching numbers.

    Cons

    -Inexperienced and unprofessional management...
    -Because the company is growing and because of the high turnover, it is very unorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers. They are inexperienced, unprofessional, and rude.
