    Pros

    Great people and not too big so you can get to know everyone. Leadership knows what they are doing. Many folks have been there forever (that's got to mean something).

    Cons

    Facilities are not new. Other companies may have more perks. Benefits are just ok.

    Nice job if your full-time

    I worked at RDA Group part-time

    Pros

    Pay was okay for part time

    Cons

    Was part time when I was hired in I was given a scheduled that I was going to work during the year. Out of the 6 months I worked there they only followed that for 2 months. The second month hit and was told we will call you when we need you. Which is really hard to work around that when trying to go to school.

    Current Employee - Programmer Analyst in Bloomfield Hills, MI

    I have been working at RDA Group full-time

    Pros

    Annual corporate "picnic"
    Annual Christmas party
    VPs of certain teams are flexible and understanding of workload
    (Slowly) Working to adopt newer technologies
    Beginning to realize that younger employees have viable and useful ideas

    Cons

    Everyone is ALWAYS overloaded, if you're swamped, you almost have enough work.
    Many project staff have no idea what they need to be doing, too eager to agree to (justified and un-justified) customer desires (often not even demands, though you wouldn't know it)
    High tension between programmers and project staff on most projects
    Antiquated codebase (VB derivative mostly)
    Younger employees' ideas tend to viewed as less valuable or feasible
    Far too few programmers for amount of work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more programmers
    Provide some formal training to acclimate new employees to "RDA's" way of doing things
    Don't focus so heavily on human error, so long as efforts are being made to rectify it

    Okay place to start out, but not a place to stay for your entire career

    Pros

    Great work is recognized and appreciated. Being a midsized company, they do have a small company feel and respect most ideas you share. There's great opportunity for advancement if you're recognized as a good employee. Work environment is friendly and very collaborative.

    Cons

    While good employees are recognized, sometimes mistakes are focused on too much with other employees and then management seems to get in their head that these employees are incompetent rather than trying to help improve them.

    Work can sometimes be reptitive and boring after awhile. Some of the work is mind-numbing and you wonder why you're spending time on the tasks considering your position and client billing rate.

    The company seems resistant to change and, in the eyes of most (if not all) younger employees, is far behind in technology and graphic design for various projects. They only seem to change if more senior employees suggest things; ideas from younger employees at times seem to be given little credibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to and have more faith in the younger staff. Many of the projects/products have great potential to further establish the company as a global leader in market research, but there is failure to adapt to the rapidly changing world of market research. Younger employees have greater insight and experience with ways to reach out to people to conduct market research, and they are the key to making RDA a viable market research company moving forward.
