Working at DR as senior analyst

Current Employee - Senior Analyst in London, England (UK)
Current Employee - Senior Analyst in London, England (UK)

I have been working at Decision Resources Group

Pros

Work / life balance extremely good - flexibility to work from home one day a week and ability to attend conferences and travel if wanted. Great place to work - very young, dynamic and fun people to be around.

Cons

Limited scope for growth after promotion to senior analyst. Very flat structure and average analyst life-span is around 2 years before people move on. London office is much smaller than US office which sometimes makes us feel forgotten about.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on giving staff obtainable goals and involve them as much as possible in new product development to keep interest levels high.

    A good way to leave academia and enter pharma business world

    Current Employee - Analyst
    Current Employee - Analyst

    I have been working at Decision Resources Group

    Pros

    A nice environment, multiple opportunities to apply what you have already learned in academia and learn new things required for future career in pharma market research or other pharma-related careers.

    Cons

    Low salaries and a tiny bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Definitely think about increasing compensation. This will make people stay longer and apply their knowledge at DR rather than learn and leave. It takes time to become an expert in a therapeutic area and a person who has been following a market for 2-3 years most likely will do a better job analysing this market than somebody without this experience.

    Staid, calm, professional: but don't be surprised when fellow employees suddenly vanish

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Burlington, MA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Burlington, MA

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

    Pros

    High-quality products, well respected in the marketplace
    Reasonable hours and work expectations
    Decent salaries
    Office is quiet
    Many intelligent and devoted professionals to interact with
    Everyone seems to work pretty hard and be devoted to their jobs
    Burlington location easily accessible by car and public transportation, despite being in the suburbs

    Cons

    Quiet is good, but too much is dull. Not a lot of socializing, people tend to have families and leave immediately after work
    HR department has lots of big initiatives, but tends not to handle normal processes with much competence
    Over the past year a number of people, many of them senior, have been laid off unexpectedly. Any photos of them or references to them are quickly purged.
    An entirely new leadership team is still feeling its way, and seems unable to make serious decisions.
    No real training or skill development opportunities.
    The location (next to the Burlington Mall) is less than exciting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a decision and implement it without immediately changing your minds.
