    I have been working at Coleman Research full-time

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, fair compensation, good commission opportunities (your hard work is monetarily rewarded). Company is growing which provides for enough work to stay busy and make the day go by quickly. Also have never felt micromanaged at all, good flow of things between the various roles/positions. You also learn a lot while working and no day is really the same which is nice. Good culture and office life. New office is awesome too.

    Cons

    When things get busy sometimes you will stay in the office late (30 mins-1 hour extra and not often), but nobody makes you do this, you will just likely need to sometime when you hit a busy point.

    I have been working at Coleman Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Helps develop sales skills and connect they just started some development training that should be good. CEO is pretty great and the WeWork space is nice.

    Cons

    Underpaid. The amount of work that will happen outside normal work hours and on the weekends will eat away at your social life, and if you don't pick up these assignments it negatively reflects on you. The entire job would be more appealing with current benefits, pay, etc if working from home wasn't so taboo in the company.

    I worked at Coleman Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Great work/life balance -Decent exposure to major investment and consulting firms -People here are great. Smart, supportive, and professional while still being fun. Particularly impressed by the new CFO -Compensation has improved of late. Solid incentive structure

    Cons

    -Work gets mundane and repetitive. Coleman stays surface-level with their research work, meaning it can be very un-stimulating -Lack of skill development, learning opportunities, and real challenges -Lack of clear career growth and limited exit opportunities -Coleman struggles to define it's value prop in a crowded marketplace. It often feels like the company is simply set to cruise-control -Can feel like there's a culture of general complacency, frustration, and disinterest -Lack of connection / communication across offices
