    Fantastic company to work for

    Pros

    Coleman Research was an amazing company with even better people. My colleagues were insightful, thoughtful and willing to lend a helping hand at any time. While it was a hybrid job (half virtual, half in person), it felt like I became very close with everyone rather quickly. They helped me learn and grow at a fast rate and made me feel accepted and a valued member of the team. Management found the right balance of being professional and personable. I would advise anyone looking to work in the expert network space to look no farther than Coleman Research. Nothing but great experiences and great people at this company!

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any downsides to working here. The pay is fair (about $52,000 annual with bonus opportunities) and the work flow is easy to learn and enjoyable on a daily basis. The only thing I can think of is they have a 9-6pm work day and 9-5pm on Fridays. I personally would rather an 8-5pm in order to get off a little earlier, or even the classic 9-5pm. But regardless, time flies when your enjoying yourself and that is not a problem at Coleman Research!

    Deception, Misleading, Slipping, and they know it

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You can work from home

    Cons

    Every. Other. Piece. If you are interviewing or a current Coleman employee, ask how BASE pay is determined, which regions are paid what, and the explanation. You will usually get hit with "cost of living" but with that same thought process they won't and don't provide a "cost of living" increase. Or touch their pay structure. RECENT COLLEGE GRADS (Who are targeted)! There a hundreds of better places to get your entry level experience. Go to one of them. The company's head of Talent Acquisition even left.... There are your signs

    Good first / transitionary job

    Jan 3, 2023 - Senior Client Associate in Raleigh, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The people are great and there are lots of opportunities to grow within your role if you are open to them.

    Cons

    There are periods of high turnover, and the work culture is like you are still in school. There is no flexibility in your working hours, and you frequently work late and are required to work a 12 hour shift every month at the associate level. You feel like you're chained to your desk and, even as a significant individual contributor, feel like there is zero flexibility in your daily working scheduled.

    Bad and getting worse

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Handful of good colleagues

    Cons

    - Pay is very low and commission restructuring is going to cause high performers to take a pay cut ** If you are a Coleman Employee: DO NOT listen to them when they instruct you to “keep your salary a secret”. That is a glaring red flag. Any company who is paying their employees fairly and has sound reasoning behind discrepancies in pay would encourage salary transparency instead of discouraging it. Talk about your salary with your coworkers. You have every right to do so. - No longer work from home (despite not having enough spaces for all of their employees to come in because this company is based out of WeWork) - Lied about unlimited PTO - HR is aware of issues with management, including managers bullying employees and creating a hostile work environment. Despite this, these managers are still employed while many of their subordinates left the company due to this treatment. - Laid off many employees and looks like they are trying to drive more turnover with new policies

    It's a good entry-level job

    Nov 12, 2022 - Senior Associate in Raleigh, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    It's a good first job out of college. You'll learn a lot of basic skills like project management, communication, and organization skills.

    Cons

    Job is very metrics based. They expect you to hit a certain goal every month. Not necessarily a bad thing if hitting your metrics motivate you but can be very stressful given the current market lull
