I have been working at Cato Research full-time (More than a year)
Team-oriented. Friendly and intelligent peolple to work with. Flexible hours and schedule sto accomodate a good work/life balance.
The biggest negative to Cato Research is their extremely low pay for this market. They attempt to offset this by allowing for quicker advancement and more broad opportunities; however, the pay gap is way too large to compensate for these incentives.
Advice to Management
Setting below market salaries to compensate for greater flexibility/experience is okay; but not at the drastic degree Cato has chosen.
In person, friendly HR representative. We met in person. I arrived early, we started the interview when I arrived. Interview only lasted about 15 minutes, had blocked off time for 30 minutes.
