    Pros

    Work from home
    Exposure to MNCs
    Exposure to media outlets for individual branding
    Good stepping stone for career

    Cons

    Long working hours. Intermediate managers take credit for no work. Lack of industry knowledge.
    Report quality is poor in comparision to industry peers. Reseach Managers bias research metrics to close business with key accounts for which they get commission.
    Awards program is a scam. Highly profitable and low billable cost. Target companies willing to pay.
    Best research members leave. Investments are made into sales, though without research the sales team have nothing to sell.
    Benefits are poor.
    Salaries are capped until you leave and then counter offers are put on the table.

    Advice to Management

    Leave the company and bring people who care about growing a company

    Pros

    Great place to work, friendly co-workers, managers that foster growth and lead by example. Lots of room for growth and a great environment to learn and develop skills. I have been here a little less than a year and look forward to continue growing with the company. Management is very understanding when issues arise and allow for a flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Communication can sometimes be difficult to coordinate since the company is global. Once in a while you will run into another co-worker who is rude and unpleasant to work with, but other than that not very many cons.

    Advice to Management

    Continue fostering growth for employee's and rewarding those who strive to do their best work.

    Lots of work experience is necessary. Time management system is cumbersome and time-consuming.
