The latest conversations about Accounting
2 years ago
What do staff want and what would make them happy? This is a serious question. I have been in public for 25 years. I swear I feel like a mom and therapist as much as a professional. I truly care about my staff. Treat then well, fight for them, invest in their futures. But the last few years it seems like nothing is enough. I am seriously considering early retirement because it is so emotionally draining on me. So many younger staff in here and all I see is complaints. Am I alone?

amazing team, smart, motivated, appreciate the effort in fostering team work. Some interesting projects, others felt more transactional. Nice perks-team lunches, periodic bonuses, competitive compensation for the job and area.
extremely fast paced, sometimes high pressure and other times lulls.

Exposure to many industries from video games, tech, healthcare, manufacturing. it's a good place to start your career to get a decent footing on various aspects of market research, consulting, UX, product development. Flexible hours Able to work remotely as needed
Very fast turn around, deliverables and expectations from lcients. Unless you have a government or non profit project, for profit corporations especially in the tech space think people are waiting by their mobile phones and emails for market research studies. Also we had to weed out people who tried to manipulate the market research industry so there are a lot of quality assurance standards that had to be followed to vet participants. Some people want an easy job where they don't necessarily have to think.

Rewarding, fast paced, engaging work. Exposure to a broad range of topics and job functions. Constant learning, growth and development. Supportive internal teams and management. Clients love the high calibre of thinking our team delivers and our strategic partnership- its nice to work somewhere where you can be proud of your work. I personally love the challenging work, problem solving and strategic thinking, but acknowledge it's hard work at times!
I've seen people leave because the pace is too fast, or because management is particular about how final work is delivered. Attention to details, and a thirst to grow and learn are necessary. Average project runs 2-4 weeks. As a manager it can be challenging to constantly switch gears when managing multiple projects simultaneously, but its not a constant- there is definitely seasonality to the work. No formal training, and learning as you go can also be challenging for new team members. Also healthcare is not offered

Lots of opportunity to learn a variety of skills and marketing software. A professional environment that allows you to have a good work/life balance. The ability to work remotely is also a major plus. I would say one of the most important thing about this position is it keeps you on your toes and presents a healthy amount of challenge. It is a small office, that allows for open communication between the team.
Some of the projects that only have data entry can get repetitive, but it can be a good break from making phone calls. If the team is too divided on projects it can hamper the ability to make significant headway on getting a wide variety of leads for a project. Can be very fast paced at times and you may not always know the best route to take, but making sure to ask questions when you are confused or not sure is a must.

management is very loyal, too loyal at times. great exposure to a variety of industries--mgt encourages staff to think like consultants and pushes you to think smarter, not harder. the work can be interesting depending on the exact project.
tight project timelines, end clients often have unrealistic expectations. Mgt needs to be willing to let go of underperformers. career opportunities are limited unless you have a college degree or advanced training in research.2

Glass door won't let me correct company name to C2 Research. It is a casual work environment when not client-facing, Smart people, interesting work. Modern office. Lots of company lunches, perks. Growing.
can be stressful during project crunch time/deadlines.1
- 5.0Mar 23, 2009Project ManagerFormer EmployeeRoseville, CA
great office layout, bring your dog to work, entrepreneurial spirit, tuition reimbursement, quarterly performance bonuses, exposure to a wide array of industries, interesting work.
cyclical work--feast or famine. High pressure. recruiting focus group respondents can be extremely challenging when your success is contigent on elements outside your control, e.g. participants cancelling at the last moment.
- 4.0Mar 26, 2013RecruiterFormer Employee, more than 1 yearRoseville, CA
decent salary for what is being asked for people, relaxed work environment, owner really cares about her staff, can be interesting work, free food, decent perks, free parking, close to home.
supervisors often micromanage, its a microsized business so there's no healthcare benefits. it can get very busy quick with tight deadlines so you have to drop everything to get the job done no matter what.

Neat little office. The boss who owns the business was nice.
Cold calling a lot, which was not an issue. But the managers micromanage, wanted you to report everything you do or you will get showed with "you need any help to pick up the phone?" You will get assigned with "mentors" who really don't know how to be mentors. I was interrupted several times on the phone with clients. It was very unprofessional. Managers do not recognize progress and expect way too much in a short amount of time.

Contract work is nice. You see a light at the end of the tunnel. These people left us hanging everyday.
Very high school clique-y atmosphere. The regular employees never took breaks for fear they would be bad-mouthed by others. New employees were dumped at desks with zero instruction & no direction. If you didn't swim, you sank quickly & were treated disrespectfully. Preferential treatment given to a select few of kiss-ups by managers who routinely gave your hard earned credit for recruiting to their favorite lap dogs then would turn around & chastise you for failing to make goals.3
