    I worked at RISI full-time

    Pros

    The company is a leader in its market and is generally respected in the industry it serves. Good work-life balance Good level of autonomy

    Cons

    A bit sleepy -- good place for people with families, but less exciting for people in their 20s who would rather be downtown.

    Advice to Management

    Stay close to customers -- don't make decisions from an ivory tower. Past management has gotten in trouble when being out of touch with customers.

    I have been working at RISI full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    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.
