Pay not high enough for the demands placed on employees

Field Researcher (Current Employee)

Pros-Fun paid training in Washington D.C.
-Not stuck behind a desk

Cons-Management only cares about "getting the shot," regardless of any difficulties you might encounter while on location; i.e. angry property owners, personal safety issues (I once had someone try multiple entry points to break onto my vehicle with me in it).
-You're alone all day every day; that might be a pro to some people, but it wears on me.
-Pay is not really very high for the amount of work done and what is expected of you.
-Commission schedule does not take into account the region of individual researchers; not everyone works/lives in densely populated areas.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open to constructive criticism and advice for change.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
