    Former Employee - Research Director in Minneapolis, MN

    Pros

    They have good processes and procedures in place for conducting and implementing research, and the people are generally very nice. Benefits an vacation time are excellent. A good place to learn alot of nuts and bolts about research.

    Cons

    Roles are very narrowly and strictly defined, making it kind of like working in a shop with lots of "union" rules, difficult sometimes to actually get things done. Senior Management is about the least transparent I've ever encountered. There is also a lack of accountability in some departments.

    Advice to Management

    They definitely need to re-assess the business profitability model and get better forecasting and accounting processes in place.
