Positive Outlook

I worked at NORC at the University of Chicago part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Data driven, flexible timing for work. This is a supportive environment for young survey researchers and data analysts. There are lots of opportunities for learning on and off the job.

Cons

The compensation for part time researchers is generally poor. However, the benefits of being at a huge and well-known survey firm make it worth the cost.

Advice to Management

It can be hard to work with the close proximity of phone-driven business personel with the quieter tasks of analysis and design.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at NORC at the University of Chicago part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pros are that you're able to work evenings and flexible hours, but that's really about it.

    Cons

    Your every word and move is monitored. You literally have to clock into an online timesheet and then your productivity on the computer is compared against the time sheet. Your pay is docked if you go 30 seconds over your 6-minute bathroom break each hour. They sometimes schedule employees for 7-hour shifts without giving you a break for meals - just under the legal limit. And there's no job security - if they finish a project ahead of schedule they'll just leave everyone who's not trained on other projects hanging without work.
