In 2003, Kevin Coleman founded Coleman Research to give investors a better way to access industry knowledge. Coleman helps thousands of clients get answers to their most critical questions, without leaving their desks. Rather than spending hours reading research reports, or traveling to meet people at conferences, we connect clients directly with industry experts, to hear immediate, relevant insights.
Coleman now serves more than 5,000 individuals at hundreds of global investment firms, consultancies and corporations. We've built a network that spans all industries and geographies, with experts in more than 12,000 cities worldwide. Even as we continue to grow, the relationships we've built – with our clients and our experts – remain at the heart of our business. Every interaction we have is based on trust and transparency.
In today's market, information is more available than ever before. But the need for specialized and authentic information, the kind of information that leads to knowledge, continues to be elusive. That's why there will always be a need for primary research – and for Coleman.
I have been working at Coleman Research full-time (More than a year)
More changes are happening, and they are headed in the right direction. Just in the last few months they have started to enhance our RA roles, added the opportunity to rotate within verticals, and are investing in our middle managers with more training.
Communications need to improve within and across departments. Coleman needs to find better ways to keep employees longer.
Advice to Management
Keep focusing on the priorities, including the people, career paths, and compensation.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Coleman Research (Raleigh, NC).
I heard back within 3 days after applying. I was then asked to do a phone interview and 1 in-person interview before an offer was made. The hiring manager kept his/her promises and did exactly what he/she said they were going to do.
