    I worked at Braun Research part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a nice summer job calling up businesses to get them to take surveys online for money. The pay was average and coworkers were good.

    Cons

    It felt like telemarketing and some businesses were understandably upset. The manager could have communicated more clearly about tasks and expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate everything more clearly so that coworkers have a good understanding of what is expected of them and what the company stands for.

    I worked at Braun Research part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is easy and time is flexible. Anything the supervisors say is bs like having your cell phones out. Also most of the people are nice.

    Cons

    First off let me start by saying that this job is easy. If you are a student, retired but want to stay busy, or quick extra cash then congrats this place is for you. Other than that dont bother. The pay is uneven per employee. No one gets paid the same for the same type of work. This place is heavily favoritism and if you want more hours you have to produce. That is all good but there will be times where it is near impossible to get one survey since you either get switched to a different survey every 30 mins, or the survey is just extremely long and bad. The chairs are extremely uncomfortable and the OS on the computers are all laggy and out of date. Furthermore, the place is just old and needs to be done over. All of this is doable and is common at most work places. However, there is a significant health issue and your health is at risk due to this. What makes it worse is management knows about the health issue and refuses to do anything about it. It is bad business, bad practice, disturbing and disgusting. It will probably take someone getting sick or developing some type of health issue before this problem is addressed. Stay away from here. You can find something better.

    Advice to Management

    Redo the place and address the health issue. That is unprofessional and irresponsible for allowing it to go on and risking your employees health at the expense of your rate.

    I have been working at Braun Research full-time

    Pros

    They are super flexible with scheduling,. The work environment is very casual, with minimal stress. This job is perfect as a retirement job, second job, or student's gas money job.

    Cons

    They are very tough with giving raises and promotions. Its super disorganized. The technology that they use is OUT OF DATE.

    Advice to Management

    Start to care about your employees, more.

    Pros

    Interesting work, deal with important current issues

    Cons

    Too many undisciplined employees, performance reviews flawed, not enough monitoring of interviewers, few hours, have to call in morning of scheduled work day to see if there is enough work to come in.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more supervisors. One or two per room with paperwork of their own is no way to know what's happening on the floor. Phone monitors can only monitor one call at a time; Terminate the unruly and trouble makers. It makes it doubly hard on those who are dedicated to the job and is discouraging to see. They also affect accuracy of the studies!

    Pros

    Good coworkers who respect your opinion. There is some opportunity for training. Healthcare after a few months and 401k after a year.

    Cons

    No paid time off unless you are senior employee. Little chance for career advancement unless you go the programmer route

    Pros

    Management knows the business well and has a structured system for training and development. Upstairs, where all the employees are full time is considerably better. Some friendly people, many with a good sense of humor.

    Cons

    lousy work environment. Old computers, bland boring building. Since the work was already tedious, the bland and outdated environment made it seem worse and had a considerable impact on the experience. This most certainly has an effect on the quality of the work of those making non stop phone calls.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the conditions on the first floor and it will certainly affect the quality and enthusiasm of the work of the interviewers.

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work with and meet some cool people. Hours are somewhat flexible. It's a great jobs for someone that is starting off and not looking to advance in a position.

    Cons

    The pay is ok, and great hen there is over time, but there were a few times people were sent home because there was just no work to do. Management sucked, they were not very professional, and showed favoritism.
