Pros

Great experience in market research - you can learn a lot really quickly.

Cons

Not a con depending on your personality but be ready to be available at any time. No job at PSB is a 9-5 gig. Keeps things interesting though and provides a lot of chances to problem solve and learn.

    Pros

    Lot of freedom to work on my own, nice coworkers, good place to get exposure to large brands

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to new ways of doing things! Analytics is the future of marketing, and endless crosstabs is not analytics!

    I have been working at Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Projects change continually, and some subject matter is very interesting. Great opportunity to learn about current events and research practices.

    Cons

    Horribly mismanaged; one hand never knows what the other is doing. People are promoted out of convenience and favoritism, not based on skill, education or experience. The result is horribly inept senior and mid level management. Communication is terrible and unclear as are project guidelines and expectations. Don't plan on sharing your feedback or ideas, no one cares. Pay is terrible and you are expected to sacrifice your plands and freetime for the company. Little chance to advance and business and project ethics are questionable at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the people in the trenches. Pay a little more, offer better benefits and try to actually retain those who will help grown and sustain your company. Quit treating employees like human collateral.
