    Pros

    Interesting work, Interesting clients, Great benefits, Management that listens (although may not react).

    Cons

    No leading edge thinking, conservative in stance. Salaries at mid-point, unclear career progression. Incorrect balance between research and consulting. Research program could be stronger if more focused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide to be a research firm or consultancy. Move more aggressively towards rich media. Provide access to stock options and grants to analysts.
