    Good but tedious

    Proxy Research Associate (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsLow pressure, low tension, pretty relaxed work atmosphere. Analysts are very friendly and happy to teach you even if you have a hundred questions a day.

    ConsExtremely boring once you know how to do it. No room for growth, no responsibilities, no projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen up some pathways for promotions each season.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Associate

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsNice environment for a first timer experiencing full-time work: 9-5, mandatory lunch break of at least half an hour. Good accommodations - fridge and sink and tea. Lots of temps get hired in proxy season, and the management is fair and used to training newcomers. You'll have plenty of support and company.

    ConsTheir business involves hiring tons of temps during proxy season. I wouldn't bet on staying on full time. The work wasn't that stimulating for me. But I felt that good work was noticed by my managers so there is some feeling of reward.

    Systematic and efficiently operated office.

    Seasonal Research Associate (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsDiverse work place where there are small teams covering different parts of the world in one place. People are generally nice.

    ConsDepending on what you do, the analysis part can get pretty boring because it is so systematic.

    Great experience for fresh graduated

    Seasonal Research Associate (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe task is not too complicated which they would train you the first week of work. Friendly environment to work with. You might get a lot of over-time during the short period of time which also make up pretty good amount of money in 3-4 months contract.

    ConsMost likely won't be able to get hired as a full-time job after the contract ended. The system that they are using is old compare to a lot of other private research companies.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
