    Pros

    Wonderful history on talented researchers....and a well deserved reputation in the market.

    Cons

    The CEO has no clue of what industry he is in and what it takes to prepare for the future. He's rather go to sporting events and blog about himself than try and learn about the business he is in. He's run things on fear and efficiency and starved the business of new ideas, new perspective and new blood. Same management team for the last 10 years. Stale and mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Let the CEO go back to data collection and the panel business and get a real leader.

    Pros

    Great place if you can't find any other job to work at.
    Most of everyone has a degree from a University, but the work is so easy that a high school graduate could easily catch on.
    Pay is decent for low level positions. Unlike my experience working for bigger stock companies in downtown, there really isn't a lot of noise in the building, the environment is pretty calm. Everyone seems to be very open and easy to talk to.

    The main pro above all is the coffee.

    Cons

    There are a lot so I'll just list the main few.
    Very lackluster working environment. Project managers and co-workers make small workable situations seem very strenuous for no reason. Project managers to not convey instructions and information to data analyst and marketers correctly most of the time. If you're a new hire be prepared for confusion because everyone has a different side of the story and no one seems to be on one accord. There are manuals that you should read, about 2000 pages or so, to ease confusion. Small town feel, so everyone is talking about everyone as I hear all the time near the coffee bar and lunch rooms...it's very childish.
    Leadership seems to be lacking a lot, management seems to only be assertive when a project is about a week late.

    Advice to Management

    Be more assertive while doing your research about the situation.
    Hard working management, but needs work.
