    I worked at Econ One Research full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Really smart and hard working colleagues; opportunities to work on very challenging and impactful projects and learn extremely valuable skills (econometric modeling, SAS/Stata programming); supportive work environment; since it is a small firm, there is is little hierarchy and staff members are not pigeonholed into defined roles but rather are given ample room to develop and take on responsibilities

    Cons

    Tight deadlines on projects can result in very long hours (this is standard for the industry and no worse at Econ One than at any of its competitors...if anything it might be better); since it is a small company within a niche industry, there is little brand visibility.

    Pros

    - Friendly colleagues. - The company believes in building analytical skills. - Some economist do care about investing in analysts and senior analysts.

    Cons

    - Salary isn't competitive and skills learned at Econ One are valued at other companies willing to pay much more for similar work. - Vacation is limited. - Remote work is limited, unless you have a rapport with upper management. - Limited opportunity for advancement, unless you are willing to stay at the company for a decade. - Some members of the staff are there because they are friend/family connections and do...

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Econ One Research full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      There is a very friendly atmosphere, and the administration does provide good support.

      Cons

      Salary is below market. Parsimonious with vacation. Bonuses can be very small - risk of working at a small firm where performance can be volatile. Not a good job of retaining motivated leaders - historically high turnover of people leaving.

      Pros

      This review applies to the Los Angeles office (headquarters). There is a lot of variety in the work. It's challenging and demanding at the same time. The environment is rather academic, with a focus on providing a top-notch product for its clients. The staff is very friendly and eager to help new staff, but can be a bit reserved and immersed when important deadlines are looming. It's a great place to work if you want...

      Cons

      The type of work that you face will depend upon specific cases and the specialty of the managing director for whom you support. New analysts will need to quickly develop proficiency in a variety of different types of skills, such as programming, writing, organization, research, mathematics, attention to fine details, and proper application of economic theory in order to find long-term success (i.e., become masters of...

      A really close knit office, good management, interesting cases, lots of responsibility and the chance to do a number of different things.

      Advice to Management

      Offer clarity on professional development to analysts and senior analysts. Check in with staff more than once a year.

      Pros

      Intelligent and friendly group in the LA office. Scholarly, stimulating work environment with a healthy balance of the workload across the Economist / Analyst staff. Close interaction with managers/economists and PhD-level analysis and methodology. The exchange of technical skills and knowledge is highly valued as is the development of new, efficient ways of achieving a given result. Relatively casual work environment....
