    I worked at Industrial Economics Incorporated.

    Pros

    Exposure to different fields, mentorship from good partners and senior associates

    Cons

    Understandably, salary is less than management consulting, but the work-life balance is exceedingly better, as is the flexibility.

    Pros

    Colleagues are smart, with an interesting diversity of specialty backgrounds. Produces high-quality work on engaging projects. Nice building - and good general location.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little better - but quality of life makes up for that. If you want to make a lot more money, go work for a management consulting firm (you'll pay for that in hours worked)

    I have been working at Industrial Economics Incorporated. full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working with smart individuals who enjoy problems solved with data driven analysis. Good place to get a step into the world of primarily governmental analyses.

    Cons

    Experience depends significantly on which managers and partners you work for. Some partners' projects require a significant amount of independence and self motivation and often give significant responsibilities, whereas others can be more rote and formulaic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Source a more diverse set of work and seek to match strengths of workers to the work at hand.

    I have been working at Industrial Economics Incorporated. full-time

    Pros

    Pretty flexible work environment regarding dress and time in and out of the office.
    The people at the RA and Associate level are generally awesome and laid back. Everyone is real nice and it is easy to make friends.

    Cons

    Experience really depends on the Principals you work for. Some are great and some are not.
    Interesting project work also really depends on the Principals you work for. It is not easy to switch practice areas for the first year so you may be stuck working on whatever they assign you to, regardless of your interest or previous experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management really needs to figure out how to run this company on a larger scale. IEc continues to grow larger, yet the management of the firm has not evolved or grown with the increase in Principals.

    I have been working at Industrial Economics Incorporated. full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Reasonable bonuses, work-life balance, and a very friendly work environment. Also, good opportunities to develop skills you're interested in honing.

    Cons

    No retirement contributions until 2 years in, limited vacation time (21 days, but no holidays, so really, it's the standard 10 days), low base pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help Research Analysts pay to go to grad school if it's a requirement for advancement within the company.
