    Pros

    Great colleagues, interesting job. A lot of content people working for RISI are really passionate about the market they are covering.

    Cons

    Management doesn't have long term strategy to grow the company. People, even long-term employees keep leaving, while mngmt does nothing to keep them, relies on newbies.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, take into account their needs and suggestions.

    Pros

    RISI is a growing firm, and continues to grow at a [relatively] fast pace. With RISI being acquired by Euromoney in the spring of 2017, its brought stability, investment, and great ideas in terms of future growth strategy in the Forest Products pricing and forecasting areas. The new CEO, Dan Klein, is very engaging and connected with staff. As a consumer I had never heard of RISI, and I imagine most people... have not. However, if you are in the paper industry RISI is like the Wall Street Journal - everyone reads it and the Pulp & Paper Week brand is massive. Walk down the aisles in your local grocery store, and look around at all of those boxes. Imagine how many boxes Amazon delivers in a year and how much those boxes cost. RISI's prices drive over $70B in global trade every year in boxes, paper, wood & timber. Overall communication on performance and results and corporate initiatives is quote good with monthly company meetings and transparency given on how the company is doing. From work life balance and benefits perspective RISI is a great place to work. Benefits are world class, and the team does a good job of making the office environment fun with happy hours and summer barbecues.

    Cons

    Bedford office building is not the most attractive building on the outside. Inside is quite nice though. Could be more culturally diverse.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees and some more career path development would be big.

    I worked at RISI full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great work life balance, 9 to 5 type of workplace - flexible schedule, just make sure you get your job done - Good benefits

    Cons

    - Career growth is literally non existing, the only way to advance is to wait for the head of your department to retire - Limited room for development as a professional- heavily depends on the department you are in. - High employee turnover - Terrible office space in Bedford (headquarters) for a company that outperforms for like 3 years in a row

    Advice to Management

    Treat "working ants" as the key to your company's success rather than easily replaceable people. That's not how you attract and retain talented employees.
