Pros

Flex time
most people arrive at 9 am and after 4 pm it is hard to find anybody so work hours are great
they just turned profitable after 10 years
new management attracted execs from great companies and are bringing discipline and strategy

Cons

Online Market research is a "dog" little innovation demanded by the buyers
previous management lost too much time & resources on doing crazy acquisitions
legacy systems
hands-on top management demand to be involved on every small decision

Advice to Management

Good luck

    Pros

    Fast paced
    Growth opportunity
    Good place to learn
    Hard working people
    Regaining it's footing after a bit of a meltdown a few years back

    Cons

    Management too slow to focus on core offering
    Lost talented people, share and revenue bc of that
    Now more of a niche player, but that can be a good thig

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on executing against core offering
    Learn from past mistakes
    Recognize that every company in this space needs to have their quality initiative and GMI is no exception

    Pros

    Management is focused and continues to work on improving the right areas of the company. There is no longer a new idea every week and a new boss every 3 to 6 months. People who were not contributing to the company's success were let go so those left are all working on the same areas of improvement. The systems and software platform are stable now so projects are almost never delayed becuase of system problems.

    Cons

    Many of the new managers do not know the market research industry very well so they are learning it fast.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you have been doing over the past year and also try to build something innovative instead of simply improving features and ideas from the past.
