    Great place to start

    Research Associate (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsVery open environment. Easy to communicate with superiors. Small and unbeurocratic

    ConsMediocre compensation, lot's of tight deadlines and long hours, 'unlimited' time off but with guilt culture surrounding it so you never quite feel comfortable taking it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFormalize vacation time. Pay better and make it easier to keep a regular 40 hr work week. Too many people burn out and leave the company for better opportunities elsewhere. Figure out how to keep talent around.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Long hours and unpleasant culture

    (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat place to learn all of the nuts and bolts of online research - you have to because processes are quite manual and staffing is light. Project directors have broad responsibility for most aspects of a research project.

    Unlimited vacation is great in theory, but with staffing so light it's hard to take time off.

    ConsPay is low relative to the industry, hours are long, training is all informal, and middle and senior management can be unpleasant/unprofessional in their interactions with staff.

    Turnover is higher than many management consultancy firms due to poor moral, burn out, and unpleasant culture.

    Manual processes and lack of formal training of analyst staff hurts quality of work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe self-admitted values of senior management "I don't care if I'm liked as long as I'm respected" cause poor morale and unhealthy/inappropriate workplace interaction.

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