Pros

People who go to glassdoor are wondering about our company. The average rating and pay will immediately turn away people with better job offers. ...So, these reviews are for applicants who are still contemplating Equilar after all the negativity here. Let's provide some constructive reviews instead of self-serving catharsis, okay? Pros: - Can get promoted to a good sounding title pretty fast - You can leave after 8 hours* - You can execute your ideas faster than in a large company - A majority of company is young - Small company: it's easy to interact with every individual and learn from (and work with) all the different types .** *To rebut future comments which I know will occur: you won't get chewed out if you're actually pulling your own slack. **Very much the opposite of glassdoor, where you'll find like-minded people that are all mouthing the same thing. Not much to gain here after reading the latest 1-star review, right?

Cons

- Low pay - Monotony of grunt work - Small voice - Inexperienced middle management - Habitual loss in talent - Get promoted based on tenure, not talent Advice to You: Think about how to advance your career, If you decide to work for Equilar, I know your experience will be short. But it is what you make of it. It's not going to get any better, unless you do something about it. Monotonous work? Learn new skills that will help get through the day and that you can market in the future. Ideas for improvements? Work out your ideas and pitch them to the right people. It's a small company, and you can get things moving fast. Wouldn't that make a great story for future interviews?

Advice to Management

Fire lazy people. If someone is only doing their minimum job responsibilities at a sub-par levels, *fire them*. Isn't that what the monitoring is for?

    Cons

    you will be interviewed by staff that shouldn't be conducting interviews for some your destiny lies with the several interviewers who shouldn't be interviewing you are asked legitimate difficult questions, but by people who shouldn't be conducting interviews

    Advice to Management

    YOU GUYS are not that great! Take your asses off the pedestal. Smart people can see right through you, especially directed towards one individual in Business Development and Sales Operations. You have no idea how stupid you looked while you interviewed me.

    Pros

    Smart/talented people Good culture but limited by scrutiny and rigidity Good business model

    Cons

    Company pays well below market Little opportunity for advancement Company is managed from the top, communication between departments is poor Don't expect to laugh in the office, All actions are monitored Company hires great people but none of them stay long enough due to issues with top management Expectations are lofty, unrealistic and likely to be changed if close to being achieved Management is very controlling. completely inconsistent behavior except for being unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    A compensation research firm that needs to learn how to compensate. Value your employees.
