    I worked at Verbatim Advisory Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty decent job for people straight out of college looking for office experience. Cold calling but not in a sales role so people are typically not too rude on the phone. Definitely can look pretty good on a resume. Small, casual office where most people are in the same role as you or were previously. Never really asked to work overtime or take the job home with you in any way. Easy enough job and can make solid money on monthly bonuses if you put in average effort. Room for advancement if you demonstrate that you understand what they're doing overall as a company beyond just your daily tasks.

    Cons

    Projects get repetitive sometimes. Phone based work is not necessarily for everyone. Their sister company disregards Verbatim and forces certain aspects on them like vacation and benefits that would otherwise be more attractive if it were run as its own company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to tone down the micro-management somewhat (it's generally fine but some people can be overbearing). Try to get more autonomy from the sister company - management seems to know how to make it a more attractive work place but has their hands tied.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Verbatim Advisory Group (Waltham, MA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick and easy, although they seemed a little unorganized. I was interviewed by a female manager who was very nice. When she left the room she told me another woman might come in and interview me, or it might be a guy and just to sit tight. This showed me they were unorganized and not very prepared. An analyst then came in and interviewed me. I can't remember many questions that they asked me; they mostly just explained the job.
