    I worked at Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates full-time

    Pros

    --Employees are trusted with important work for major brands very early on in their careers
    --Teams are small, so you can see the specific impact of your contribution to each project
    --Work is varied and interesting; you get exposure to a wide range of clients, issues, and research methods quickly
    --Employees are empowered to try new things--there's not a lot of bureaucratic red tape that gets in the way of new ideas

    Cons

    --Work/life balance is a struggle
    --Company is growing and changing and is still figuring out how to adapt what worked for the company in the past to what it needs today

    Advice to Management

    --You have an incredible pool of very talented and motivated employees; continue to double down on your commitment to helping them feel looped in to what's happening at the upper levels of the company as it grows
