    Pros

    Lots of variety in projects

    Cons

    Very demanding, client is always right even when they're insane. However, you're always wrong to vendors. So you're often stuck in the middle and its on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop glorifying tall the space age extra stuff and start appreciating your bread-and-butter employees.

    Pros

    Great training resources for people new to market research. Opportunities to work on interesting projects and very talented people

    Cons

    Company culture is a joke. Long hours isn't an issue but when its managed poorly, what's the point

    I worked at Lieberman Research Worldwide full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is great if you're fresh out of school and looking to learn about market research. There is a good amount of training and good support. Young group so easy to find friends.

    Cons

    You must adhere to strict policies and procedures. Pressure to work long hours + guilt if you leave early if you have a light workload. Driven by bottom line finances, not as much by quality of output.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize employees are not just numbers and efficiency data.

    An 'Opportunity Culture' for those who do not value work-life balance.

    Pros

    This is a great place to start your research career and become exposed to various projects, clients and industries. The experience can be what you make of it, and you can build your own career within the company if you are a workaholic.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work long hours if you want to learn anything worthwhile. Otherwise, expect to be a line item.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. Your turnover rate is superb if that's what you're aiming for.

    I have been working at Lieberman Research Worldwide as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people is what sets this place apart from other research firms. It allows room to have your personality convey within the company. You can bring in headphones to listen while working.

    Cons

    The projects you're working in varies from different teams. If you want to work on a high-end project within a specific industry of your choice, but are on a different team that doesn't do it, then that's too bad. You should specify what industry you want, but regardless they put you in departments that need more hires. As any other research-based firm, the material and work can get a bit dry and boring.

    Pros

    Nice people, casual work environment, always working to improve the work experience, great support staff. They have good focus on acclimating and training new talent.

    Cons

    Little interaction at work, everyone has their own space and often eats at their desks. I suppose this can differ based on what business unit you are a part of - some make more effort to be a team than others.

    Pros

    This is an amazing company, with amazing people. You get to work on cutting edge, market relevant projects, with industry leading organizations across practically every vertical segment that exists. You will get pushed harder and stretched farther that many places, but you will grow immensely as a result. It wasn't always easy, but I couldn't be more proud that I worked here.

    Cons

    I think, for technology professionals, there is limited advancement opportunities, and probably a lack of career trajectory in the organization. However, if you are looking to develop incredible process, project management, or technical fundamentals and depth, this is an EXCELLENT stepping stone job in your career journey.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think upper management is great and they have a real handle on the pulse of the company and its people. I think they are doing a great job and have developed a very clear culture of what is expected. Again, you will be stretched, but you will grow immensely in the process.

    Pros

    Great place to learn if you have good mentors and teachers. They let you manage yourself and some people get great opportunities to grow. Can be casual and fun.

    Cons

    Long hours of course, but also a lack of recognition for good work, and a lack of loyalty for time put in. When you become a senior staff member, you realize how much the dollar is driving the work, and not the work itself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have to invest in training and development, have to bring in people who are internally focused, not just worried about the dollar.
