I have been working at Frank N. Magid Associates, Inc full-time for more than a year

Pros

Friendly coworkers and the job responsibility is very easy. Te responsibility is calling numbers with the hopes of conducting a research study regarding tv programs and pilots.

Cons

The work hours are usually from 7-11:30 and you have to work on Sundays. Most people rather not be bothered during dinner hours (6-7 p.m.). Therefore, you may not get any surveys completed during this time. The pay is not the best, usually minimum wage.

    Pros

    Fair management and great experience

    Cons

    Since they've been in business for over 52 years, they think they can demand a very large margin. This created problems for me as a sales person since I was constantly being outbid by a significant amount.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent in how you price your projects among all MD's and consider accepting a lower margin.

    Pros

    In a word: learning. You cannot get out of the way of learning opportunities. It is expected that everyone working at the company will have an area of expertise, as such one is encouraged to develop the expertise. It is a highly entrepreneurial environment. If you have a good idea, then pursue it -- as long as your day job still gets done. Compensation and flexibility are awesome.

    Cons

    Internal communication and management communication are terrible. There is no formal training. No introductions. No centralized knowledge area where people can learn about projects, areas of expertise, etc. No company meetings. Essentially, you work as an independent contractor within a small company. It can be brutal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make compensation and titles more transparent. Focus more on honesty with clients and less on the bottom line whenever possible. Do something to help centralize company resources.
