    Pros

    Company had a great culture and vibe. Young and high energy. Some of the most talented people in the market research world.

    Cons

    Slow to expand and leverage core competencies. Its PDA based consumption diary panel and research is amongst the best in the CPG market research industry with no other competition, yet unable to penetrate. Huge growth potential.

    Advice to Management

    The basic tenets of Research consulting are different from process and production industries. Companies feel intellectual capital can be outsourced and research can be templated and boxed. Unfortunately only 25% of research can be templated and boxed. For the rest develop smart and creative thinking with sound fundamental knowledge of research to win.

    small fish big pond kinda thing. Lots and lots of substitutes that can and willing to do your job (i.e. replace you)... some unnecessary politics arise... also can be too beauracratic

    Pros

    A good place to learn the basics of data analysis in market research studies. The multitude of projects and challenges helps to get familiar with rela life applications of various analytical tools.

    Cons

    There are little long - term prospects and little place to further improvement and career advancement. After 1 - 2 years it becomes clear that all higher level positions all taken and there are little chances for any new ones to appear.

    Advice to Management

    More attention to career path planning, working on retaining emplyees
