    Pros

    Kline is a well respected industry leader in both market research and management consulting. It is unique in that all levels of employees gain incredible exposure and experience to both clients and Kline management while working in a collegial and supportive environment. At Kline, you are not judged by face time in the office, rather, results. They respect and model work/life balance - which is very difficult to find in any company, especially in this industry!

    Cons

    I have not experienced any negatives working for Kline.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing!

    Pros

    Interesting work, great people and collaboration, and excellent credentials in eyes of clients. Having a publications business as well as a consulting business gives a tool hat many firms have to go outside for; consistent contact with clients due to those studies also provides benefits to the consulting team.

    Cons

    Some seniors don't pull their weight and don't engage well with juniors but this is not uniform. Sometimes lacking tools that larger firms have

    Pros

    Friendly environment, most managers even senior managers are very approachable. Because of the size of the company consultants have the opportunity to take on quite some responsibility. Very good place to get consulting experience.

    Cons

    Company is not really growing sufficiently enough to allow for a long term career path, a lot of the senior slots have been filled up, not necessarily with the most qualified people.

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective in promoting the right people for the right functions some people seem to be in senior functions becasue they have been that long with the company not becasuez they have the right skill set.
