    Pros

    Strong researchers and business consultants, with some unique and strong research tools. Good relationships with many top tier clients, across all aspects of consumer insights.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is confused, and hasn't provided a path into the new world of research. There is only a vague corporate strategy, in part because the different divisions of the company are quite diverse. Not willing to take a stand on the direction of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Without a clear strategy (strategy = choice about what to do and not do), employees are left wondering where all this hard work is headed. The industry is changing too rapidly, with too many new developments / ideas / demands, to just continue as business as usual.

    Pros

    good office environment, flexible work hours, good job security, I like the people that I work with, easy to work independently, I don't have a boss who is a micro manager

    Cons

    When it comes to salary, I don't feel like a valued employee. I feel like I am being paid just under the low end of the range.

    Upper management and the company as a whole is very slow and bureaucratic, so it can take time for change to be enacted.
