I have been working at Murphy Research full-time (More than a year)
Murphy Research is a very cool company and I've been very happy here. Folks are smart, the work is good, the clients are amazing and it's located in the heart of downtown Santa Monica. There are not too many meetings, no drama, and the people are generally kind and easy going. Finally, I've been here a year and seen many folks promoted.
Because the work is project based, work load can go up and down which means it can be super hectic and then quiet down. That takes a little adjustment, but there's a lot to learn and it's a great environment to do it in. I also think there are some more junior folks who sometimes may not realize what a gem the company is - after working for a number of large and small firms, I can say it's a pretty amazing place.
Advice to Management
Not much to offer here but what's working: Continue to structure trainings and feedback and encouraging communication lines to be open. Remember to keep giving people praise when appropriate and continue to promote those who succeed!
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Murphy Research (Santa Monica, CA) in July 2016.
They called me in for about 2 hours. I was interviewed by 3 people and each seemed to be confused on why I was contacted for that specific role given my lack of experience for a Senior level position. The facility was clean and was in a nice neighborhood.
