    Pros

    The time that I spent at Grand View Research was nice and helpful. I joined the organization as an associate and within 8 months got exposed to client interfacing. It helped in my professional career growth.

    Cons

    While, client interfacing early into our career is a great thing, it has its cons. As a fresh out of college graduate, I had to work really hard to learn the nuances of client interfacing. Worked out in my favor.

    Advice to Management

    You need to hire a project manager who will act as an effective communication channel between the client and the company.

    Pros

    The company has a very transparent policy. The best thing that I liked about the organization is its willingness to lend an ear to employee problems.

    Strict timelines and one month production tasks.

    Advice to Management

    It is time that you expand the team, so that the existing employees can take a breather.

    Pros

    The company is really good to start a career into market research. They have plans to expand the business strategically and management is putting their best efforts to make it rewarding for company as well as its resources. However, the employees who started with the company in it's intial phase get all the perks of being early birds right from incentives, favorism and promotions. Managers, and directors work in favour of employees who are good at "Yes Boss" thing. Which results in discouraging hard working but are not early employees. Think 1000 times before taking any senior level responsibility.

    Cons

    Good for people who are spineless and ready to do anything and everything on management's order. Hiring spouses of early employees and office love stories is a common trend in the company. Which is encouraging "lobbying", personal information digging in the office where higher management people are involved in a relationship. Also, no work life balance. You end up working for 24 hours causing stress and health issues.

    I worked at Grand View Research full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small organisation with less politics and inexperienced middle and senior management so if you have skills than you have good chance of growing here

    Cons

    - the owners are frauds
    - One man show and will threaten to freeze the salaries of employees if you wish to move out of the company and find another job
    - Zero training
    - Unprofessionalism
    - Senior Management of the company have a habit of creating troubles for their managerial / mid managerial level employees who try to grow in their career by finding job somewhere else

    - I worked with this org for almost a year regret why I didnt do my research on Glassdoor before joining this company. The relieving policy was changed overnight so that they can freeze my salary. These guys do not have funds to pay Full and Final. In fact Salaries are also delayed. They will hire people with high salaries but when you try to leave the company they will play dirty tricks with you so that they dont have to pay salaries to you.

    They have zero standards and will go down any level for saving a penny by doing any kind of fraud.

    I am one of the people who joined this company when it was very starting and my Full & Final is still pending even after a year. The most unprofessional LALA company who just know how to suck blood by making sure their employees work for 12- 16 hours every day. If you are a donkey and ready to work like one than join "Grand View Research The Fraudsters"

    Advice to Management

    Your fraud will be exposed! You will go to jail for spoiling careers of so many people.

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment once you complete training. Work life balance is good. If you are settled in life and want to work in an easy going company, this is it! People mostly come at 10 am and leave by 7 pm. Very good training process and managers are friendly.

    Cons

    One has to follow up with different teams to get things done and there is no centralized system.

    Advice to Management

    Managers and HR team need to take more responsibility.
