I worked at OTX full-time for more than a year

Pros

Amazing, fun, intelligent people.
Awesome culture. One day we turned the conference room into a ping-pong table and held a tournament. Every holiday and birthday was celebrated with decorations and treats and usually some form of liquor.
Fun, interesting work.

Cons

OTX was bought by Ipsos and a lot of things changed... The culture is now very different...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Most of the senior guys have left since the merger, so there's no sense in leaving advice... I just wish them the best of luck in their upcoming ventures...

    I worked at OTX

    Pros

    Somewhat fun and young place to work. Zalis and company went out of their way to do what they could in a data mill to make it fun.

    Cons

    Long hours and very limited potential for advancement. It was a data mill and done rapidly and cheaply with little regard for work/life balance. This is the market research industry, though not OTX alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is very little to say because the nature of the market research industry is to grind out data. This is not a field for anyone. Helps if you have OCD.
