    I worked at YouGov full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, very little travel for most positions, fairly flat management structure. Great place for a first job after college.

    Cons

    Lack of basic services in the US (the company is based in the UK), including HR and accounting, which leads to a very disorganized hiring and on-boarding process, problems being paid properly, and a hostile work environment with no process for remedy.

    Very slow technology development, buggy product, little opportunity for advancement, unreasonable sales and client services recommendations given the limitations of the product.

    Pays below industry rates (and offers sub-par benefits), and tends to attract the caliber of people willing to accept lower-than average salaries. Suffers from high turnover.

    The offices are run down, often unheated, have a serious rodent problem, and are too small to accommodate the current staff. No separate space for sales or offices, so the background noise is the same sales script over and over and over....
