    I have been working at Chadwick Martin Bailey full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I am fairly new to the organization, but thought I'd share how impressed I am that their culture matches (and exceeds) what I was told during my interview sessions. What a great team CMB has and everyone is genuinely helpful and pleasant. The onboarding experience has been awesome. As soon as I walked through the door I could tell that a lot of team members put thought into what type of exposure and training I should...

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Pros

    CMB has a lot to offer intelligent, curious and driven people looking for a career in market research and consulting: great colleagues, challenging and rewarding projects, leading clients doing interesting work, an open and non-hierarchical culture, senior management who are sincerely invested in the company and people.

    Cons

    Professional service and consulting isn't for everyone--flexibility and a sense of humor are as critical as any other hard skills.

    I have been working at Chadwick Martin Bailey full-time

    Pros

    There's much to appreciate at CMB, especially when compared to previous employers. CMB is a thoughtfully run company with a great industry reputation. Flexibility is a huge pro when working at CMB, whether it being allowed to work from home, take extended vacations, or exploring other roles within the company. CMB also ensures a social culture in the office (social committee sponsored outings, team building, sponsored...

    Cons

    Client needs come first, which can lead to odd hours, as is expected in this industry. However, CMB tries to be aware of employees working a lot or late on a consistent basis. CMB's training program is well-known and intense, so it takes a while for new hires to get up to speed. At times, the youth and lack of work experience among the associates can lead to extra work for others.

    Advice to Management

    While the self-awareness is wonderful at times and has allowed the creation of much of the systems currently in place, I feel strongly that CMB should try to be less fettered by its own structures.

    Pros

    Wicked smart people, interesting clients, company gives back to the community. The company places a high value on employees taking leadership roles in lots of things. It might be as simple as leading the social committee to find interesting things for the staff to do. It feels like a big happy family. The company offers employees time to get involved in charitable causes. These sorts of things are not common.

    Cons

    It's a project based company. The workflow ebbs and flows like any other project based company. Unfortunately you can't staff to meet the peak demands without folks sitting idle during less busy times.

      I have been working at Chadwick Martin Bailey full-time

      Pros

      Colleagues are smart and so are the clients. It's a great place to learn about market research by working with some amazing brands on a variety of different types of projects. There's a lot of great team work and collaboration.

      Cons

      The project work can be challenging and somewhat unpredictable, but like any good challenge, it can also rewarding.

      Pros

      Great company culture and people. Flexible working locations.

      Cons

      Extremely low pay and long hours. Benefits are not good, "free lunches once a month" is not a benefit. With current changes and frequent reorgs, employees are concerned about their careers at this company.

      Advice to Management

      Show more support to low paid employees. HR, please listen to what we say and take ACTION. Your door is always opened, sure, but unless action is taken all the meetings do not matter.

      Pros

      - Amazing company culture. People are smart, collaborative and fun. Many employees leave for other opportunities and later come back. - The company has continuously offered me growth opportunities to enhance my career. - Exciting projects across varied industries. No day is the same. The work is challenging and continues to push me. -Company size allows for access to all levels of the organization and an opportunity...

      Cons

      - The company is smallish so doesn't offer the number of titles of a large organization and can be hard for those who equate growth with title changes.

      Keep working through the forward looking strategy to meet industry demands and continue attracting the accounts like we have today.

      Pros

      • The people employed by CMB are awesome ○ Every Friday we have "fun Friday," and a lot of CMBers stay in the office as late as 8pm hanging out and talking to each other. I would imagine that few places have the kind of company culture wherein the employees would rather stay in the office together than go home/out on a Friday. ○ CMBers are invested in the happiness of one another which is evidenced by eating...

      Cons

      • My one big con is the pay is low which makes me feel undervalued, no matter how much I'm enjoying everything else about the company. It's also difficult to negotiate pay raises. Phrases like, "we don't buy employees" are used, when in fact that's what one is doing when we provide our skill and expertise for your company. CMB boasts a great compensation package, but I don't find that to be true. • We can end up working...

      I worked at CMB for almost 10 years in a variety of roles starting in an entry level position and working my way up to the VP level. I was always given the opportunity to grow and try new things and consider my time there a free MBA. The exposure to incredibly smart and kind people who are beyond dedicated to customer success is something i treasure even more now that i have worked at a number of different companies....

      Cons

      The market research space is one that moves at a slower pace than something like tech so while the pace isn't slow, it's not a high growth industry or company. On the marketing side, that can lead to playing more of a sales enablement role instead of being a full business driver.

      Advice to Management

      Maintain the culture and client focus. I don't know that it is 100% unique but it is certainly best in class. Be more forward looking in terms of emerging technologies and approaches.

      -Working with fun (and most are young) coworkers. Even senior managers are relatable and very personable. There are holiday parties and summer parties that you will get to know the team and their families. -A great opportunity for those starting their market research careers. There is a great training period, where you are a part of a young team with a manager dedicated in just training you while you get exposed...

      Cons

      -Very low pay especially for the long hours you put in. When the client wants something, that means you are up till 4am trying to finish their request. Even if you are on vacation, you are expected to work. I've seen some work during their honeymoons. HR will probably comment that this is not the case, but unfortunately this is what most PMs and Associates are doing. It is impossible to juggle so many projects...
