    "Satisfying work but way too much of it"

    Pros

    If you enjoy marketing research and intellectual stimulation this is a great place. If you enjoy working with down to earth colleagues, this is a great place. If you enjoy working with data and writing about it, this is a great place.
    If you need to work from home/remotely, this can be a great place.
    If you thrive in a congenial (rather than cut throat) work environment, this is a great place.

    Cons

    If you enjoy having a personal life, this is not a great place. There is always just quite not enough people to get the work done and it's impossible to get management to add new positions. The only way to get the work done in a quality way is to work evenings and weekends, pretty much consistently. It gets oppressive.

    Given the size of this organization, they sorely need some tech updates to facilitate data flow that could free up a lot of employee time.

    Annual raises are minimal, such that you start to fall behind on salary when cost of living is factored in. Big raises come with promotions, which is nice but there are only so many positions one can attain.

    Advice to Management

    Employees and tech are the 2 things that are needed to get this job done and ultimately please the clients. Please invest wisely in these and aim to keep employees who are doing a good job by paying them competitively. These jobs are knowledge-intensive and it's hard on all of us when someone quits and new people need to be re-trained.
