Pros

From top management to associates, it has a great office environment and friendly, caring employees. Small company also gives a great connection to all employees in the company, and makes it feel like more of a family and you always know where to go for things. If you are in project management, you get to work in a great variety of market research methodologies and all components of the market research process (questionnaire development all the way to report analsysis). The promote from within, and make sure you get good exposure and experience before promoting you to the next level. At the same time, they want you to get as experienced as fast as you can, which leads to quick promotions. Other great things: healthcare coverage is good, free bagels on Wednesdays, food is purchased regularly (monthly?) for the office, you get your own office, and dress is casual.

Cons

You have to put in a good amount of time on some days. While the work comes in waves, there will be times where you will need to stay late for consecutive days to catch up -- but it's just the nature of the client business and holding yourselves to clients' deadlines. Some of the clients that you'll work work are demanding (but some are good!). Salary seems to be lower than industry average too --especially when not on the client side (i.e., if you work for a research department within a larger corporation), which seems to have caused project managers to look elsewhere after 4 or 5 years.
