    Great Team

    Client Development (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsEnjoyed working in Research Now - senior management were easy to deal with. Career opportunities for those that seeked them.

    ConsThere were problems with integration, and what seemed like unnecessary bureaucracy. In their defense they were taking steps to try and resolve that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA little more integration, would go a long way between teams.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great colleagues hardly compensate for incompetent management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsSocial environment - lower level staff are a friendly, fun bunch of people.

    ConsI worked at RSN for over five years and in that time multiple people were repeatedly refused promotions to jobs they had all of the responsibilities for - with none of the benefits and nothing to show for it. Senior management often went up the ranks due to tremendous growth in the first couple of years - NOT because they were adept at the job - and it shows.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI was once told by a very senior member of management that providing training, growth and career prospects - if not increasing pay - were unnecessary because "people are lucky to have jobs" and "Tesco doesn't do it that way". I've got news for you - this isn't a supermarket chain, it's research. Your staff turnover is high for a reason, RSN.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good fun people (on the whole)

    Manager (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsThe people are (for the most part) really fun to work with. There is a good work ethic among teams and most people get on well and socialise a lot together. Most managers are flexible with their teams and allow extra perks like working from home and other benefits. The benefits also just got a bit of a revamp and are better than they were.

    ConsThe hours can be quite long, and there are challenges with working for a company with the head office in the USA. Although I think there are more opportunities for training, it would be good if there were more.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave more decisions made in EMEA. A bit more recognition to best employees. Also, more investment in training & more of a long term view on providing training for employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good people, low salaries

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsLoads of efforts were done to get some social life into the company, the parties are great and the colleagues too. It is a fun and youthful atmosphere.
    Training opportunities are available to people who ask for them
    Mngmt is on the ball, the future of the company seems safe, mgmt ready to seize opportunities in the market

    ConsCreativity can sometimes be stifled by technology issues
    Low salaries, and bonus scheme isnt the most generous out there... vouchers do not replace a low base...
    lack of clear career plan "it's all on you!"
    Processes can be very heavy to move
    Operations teams overworked and undervalued, long hours expected.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have none.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Flexible but somehow unambitious workplace

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsDiverse people and good work/life-balance. It is a nice community feeling at least in the panel management team and people are friendly.

    ConsNot the best place for ambitious people, different parts of the company seem quite disconnected. The office is not very inspirational although they partly refurbished it last year.
