I have been working at Equilar full-time (Less than a year)
I love working in the Nashville Office! It is a small, tight-knit group which makes work very enjoyable! I love the relationships I have built with my peers as well as the knowledge I have gained from them.
This research analyst position straight out of college is a great career start! You can advance your excel and analytical skills while building new ones like being exposed to SQL! Coming out of college I wasn't really sure what direction I wanted to take my career, so working with Equilar has allowed me to build vital skills. For example, I have had the opportunity to strengthen and build my communication, writing, analytical and organizational skills that can be applied to nearly any job/career. Further, I love the exposure to content writing I have had working at Equilar. I have been involved with several lengthy data pulls/reports for blog posts, media outlets and annual reports for clients. This writing exposure has allowed me to be involved with large and challenging projects where I feel like my work played a part of the overall success of the company! If you want to feel like your work is directly involved with Equilar’s success then working in the Nashville office is right for you, especially since our Director of Content and Communications, Dan is in the same office!
Overall, I loved working with smart and driven individuals because you can really learn a lot from other people. Building a strong knowledge base at Equilar will be very useful in future career endeavors!
I don't really have any cons because I love working in the Nashville office. California is not for everyone so I love that I had the opportunity to work in a city I love!
Advice to Management
One recommendation I have to is make changes to the pay structure in research. The compensation could be better considering everyone at Equilar has a college degree and is extremely smart! I know pay is not everything but it can be a top reason why an individual decides to join or leave a company.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Equilar (Redwood City, CA).
I first met with the most senior executives offsite. They I talked to each person on the executive staff onsite and then was required to present a 90 day plan for the department that I was to manage. In addition, I met with the various senior managers of each department. The HR department was extremely efficient and was always one step ahead of me. Whether it was filling out the application online, the background check or just coordinating the appointments, it was really easy to do.
It was basically all done with the CEO directly. He definitely controls all the purse strings.
