    Pros

    Great experience for people who love market research, wonderful coworkers, flexibility to work from home or remotely.

    Cons

    Salaries are less than average for the industry for non-senior roles, promotions and raises rarely happen, work-life balance is almost non-existent

    Advice to Management

    Reward your people more often, and work harder to promote work life balance for employees. Most of the training is great, but more hands on training would be beneficial.
