    Pros

    The office location is very accessible, some of people in the office are smart and friendly, and a day of home office is granted after the six month trial period.

    Cons

    - The company is run by unqualified "industry managers/project managers/leaders" with no leadership in a very "pyramidal" way and who seem to be more worried about praising themselves (especially the consumer and energy projects) rather than encouraging to the lower ranks (analysts and researchers),
    -Their projects are really just a copy-paste from information found in other websites (and from other market research companies)
    -Promotions are done based on how you get along with the manager (and likewise the projects are evaluated),
    - The research methods are outdated and full of flaws, including the project management methodologies,
    -There is no personal privacy and there is too much gossip,
    - You end up working a lot of unpaid extra time, especially if you are an analyst or researcher,
    -They have insolvency problems very often.
    - All the professional and smart people leave very often.

    Advice to Management

    For a company which has been operating for 50+ years, it is very shameful to be having so many flaws and the way you treat your greatest asset which is your employees. Pay them decently and compensate their time and effort. You may have 90% of the company as "managers"but does not mean these people are qualified to be leaders.
