It's an OK job, and a temporary one, for many employees

Pros

Co-workers, all very friendly and helpful. It's easy to form bonds with poeple there.

Cons

The pay is not good, and the only way you can really get a pay increase (if you start off at the borttom) is by getting a promotion; which entry-level employees have to fight for. There are maybe 50 entry-level associates and maybe one promotion a month that opens up -- how does upper management even choose? There's no legitimate system of rotation or advancement, which is disapointing. It's a better place to grow with as a career if you are getting a job there as a manager, sales rep, analyst, etc,..the entry-level associates there though are under-paid and over-worked. They have a horribly mundane work load, with unrealistic goals that are pushed, to the point where associates feel burned out and quit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide better career paths for employees / a better system of rotation. Let go of lazy managers. Set more realistic goals. Stop burning out your entry-level employees. They are humans, not robots.

    Reis is overall a good place to work but pay is sub-par.

    Pros

    Pluses include your co-workers, the flexibility in your work hours, mostly good managers. The ability to transition from department if you are inclined. This is a small company (<150) so you are limited in movement.

    Cons

    The senior management is falling behind the competition which can make outside-facing roles increasingly challenging (e.g. sales). Overall management can be myopic with some exceptions. This will not be a place to learn from your superiors but quite possibly from your peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do away with tenured senior people. If someone isn't doing there job, let them go. Either promote from within or get someone new to do the job. Look at what is really changing in your client base. This should be a wake up call for the challenges you will face ahead if you don't start acting like a public company and not a private venture (which you no longer are).

    Pros

    The people are very nice, the office location is amazing.

    Cons

    The work becomes mind numbing and its not challenging. There is a very limited possibility of growth, this is a very small company so what do you expect? I would say if your not in sales you shouldn't stay here for more than 2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being cheap with the bonuses everybody works very hard and deserves them!
