I have been working at Research Now full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Working with clients is satisfying. Most of the upper management is good and cares about the business and the employees.

Cons

It really depends on which team/business unit you are on. Let's just say half of the client service area is well managed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To the less well managed client services side I'd say just let your people do their jobs and stop working so hard to micromanage. The other team does it right and the results speak for themselves.

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Free drinks

    Cons

    Research Now is a young company that is full of potential. However, MGMT needs to wake up and recognize that it's not going to keep employees happy but giving them low to no pay raise, no career development opportunities, and standard benefits. Morale at this place is low. People are overworked and tired of the useless and incompetent management they have to report to. The structure itself is disorganized. Kurt is a great CEO but he heeds no one's advice. I wish I could recommend working for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. Recognize that MORE employees is not the answer--it's hiring the right people in the first place.

    Long hours, very low pay and no regard for work/life balance.

    I worked at Research Now full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Casual environment
    Nice coworkers
    Fun company events
    Free drinks/juice/coffee

    Cons

    Very low pay. Low. Raises are basically non-existant.
    Expected to work past normal hours (9-6). 40 hour work week? I wish! Forget that.
    Barely any recognition or bonus if you do exceptional work.
    Make any mistake (short email/long email/attire/anything) and you are basically blacklisted from high management.
    Micro-managing to the max. Management makes you feel/treats you like an intern regardless of tenure at company. Do you like being told what to do? Work here! Higher-up approval before sending any email to a client? Work here!
    High turnover.
    You also get no real experience here. Anyone can do this job. There are people who didn't graduate college working here from a million different career backgrounds. The only experience you get is honing your time-management/multi-tasking skills. Nothing else you do here will apply/help you anywhere else unless you work for a competitor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce company events/food and pay more instead.
    Hire managers who know the market research industry.
    Hire managers who are calm and don't believe the sky is falling over every miniscule bump. Newsflash: a million robotic-like emails/updates to the client makes us seem crazy.
