    I worked at Grand View Research full-time

    Pros

    Pros? In a company where nothing & nobody really matters, the only solace I found was in some rare gems who unfortunately landed there without knowing what they were getting into. Cherished memories remain limited to a circle of trusted (rapidly dwindling) employees.

    All that actually mattered was how much I managed to "learn", not thanks to the stoned/drunk excuses for mentors, but from mistakenly stumbling across best practices while being cast helplelssly into an unknown void. Pretentious care & concern for each employee is amplified when clients come back with positive feedback (often out of ignorance rather than actual appreciation, because real market research DEFINITELY doesn't happen at GVR), only to be forgotten when real support is needed.

    Cons

    Let me begin at the actual ugly nature of this so-called culture they have built:
    1. If you were part of the "founding committee", you have the right to come late, come drunk, come yelling & create unnecessary ruckus, come smelling like an entire pack of cigarettes, or even come for an hour or two & disappear.
    2. ‎Promotions/appraisals are all subject to how much an employee grovels at the feet of said founding committee, or other absurd notions of "bonding personally" with the top bosses (bonus points if you smoke with them)
    3. ‎Dont expect comfort from the SENIOR MOST members because, a) they know EVERYTHING, and b) they excel at lame excuses instead of actually coming up with solutions. (Again, diplomatic immunity from all discomfort for said committee)
    4. ‎Be prepared for unexpected firing/team dissolving/random shuffling/and being singled out because of unexplained factors (case numbers have risen significantly in recent months with "bottom" performers being ejected unceremoniously)
    5. ‎If you revel in gossip, thou shalt be exalted. If you remain a recluse, be ready to be ousted from every social group that is formed inside, because partying with the right people gets you more brownie points than real hard work.
    6. ‎The work itself is not just mundane & repetitive, but the amount of arrogance that goes into each project is ghastly! Facts are faked, projections haphazard, realistic approaches denied and for lack of better resources & paid data hosts, a fair amount of imagination works just fine!
    7. ‎Be warned: A single error (often pointed out by clients) is enough to attract the wrath of the exhumed leaders (who themselves cater to Thier whims & fancies, watch Videos online or gossip all day). However, when finding innovative approaches or achieving something worth commemorating, all you receive is an impersonal certificate or cash. The actual effort goes unnoticed in the hulabaloo of cramming wild statements into the next project.
    8. ‎Survival of the fittest: Weaker associates stand no chance. You either need to be a bully, a diva, a politician, or just plain evil to succeed.
    9. ‎Timelines? Be advised, enter a typing course, because even if u have a 1000 WPM speed, you will fall short. A DAY at max, is what you receive to create a "world-class report". Overlapping projects? No problem Sir, I'll just attach my other two robotic arms & carry on.
    10. ‎ Market Research tools are just Word & Excel. Given enough time & resources, one can make thier reports at home (display of quality?) & still suffer less. Claims of work-life balance are propagated to lure you in, but 16 hours a day, and work on weekends makes you forget you even have a life outside.
    ‎The best part is, if you work well, mentors dump the entire effort on you (including duties beneath your stature), and yet you face the wrath & receive undue blame. it's easier to work less hard, pretend to be tired and unwell, because those who shirk thier responsibilities are better off than the hardworkers.

    Advice to Management

    When have they ever taken advice?

    Fair Warning: God bless those poor brave souls who dare to enter. You can get in any time you like, but you can never leave (Your resignation magically extends from a month, to two, or three, depending upon the committee's mood swings)

    Pros

    One of the best thing i'd like to share about Grand View Research is it allows creative freedom. Knowledge is unlimited and surely one can upgrade the level of knowledge and satisfaction here.
    Second thing, the internal affairs are transparent and healthy and it is versatile and flexible in its approach towards employees.

    Cons

    Nothing major and significant to talk about.

    Advice to Management

    Kindly introduce sports as an extra-curricular part of employee benefit program. Rest good.

    I worked at Grand View Research full-time

    Pros

    Pros are only for team leads/senior analyst because they literally have no work, no properly defined job responsibilities. Their only job which can be seen is emailing response to queries (which are handled by associates), dispatching report, gossiping and taking countless breaks. So, if you are willing to play with ur career and want to join an organization where you just want to chill, GVR is the place for you!

    Cons

    -Team leads are brainless, they have absolutely zero analytical mind. Exceptions are there.
    -Client reports are done by associates and appreciation is gathered by team leads. Team leads get the bonus for client reports for which they have not even worked.
    -Work from home for seniors, but not for associates. Undue advantage is obviously taken by the team leads
    -Being partial to few employees

    Advice to Management

    Please make some appropriate job roles and responsibilities for senior analysts. I dont think they even now remember what actually report writing is.

    Pros

    Very good management. The company is transitioning from being a start up to a bigger more stable firm. Excellent work culture and absolutely flat structure. You have unlimited access to each senior management and you have the power to speak uninhibited.

    Cons

    The transition is a little frustrating for some employees. Senior analysts/team leaders need to participate more.
    The company is great but sometimes the senior management's implementation are not properly executed.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a mix of new and old employees. Training and development at some level need to be outsourced.

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

    Pros

    1. Great company to find several life partners.
    2. Spend few months treating your seniors and the management with lots of alcohol and then you gooo...a long wayyy.
    3. You can earn money by just relaxing by just becoming an analyst and senior analyst. The "so called research" work can be taken care of by the herds of associate. The most interesting part is you don't have to even waste time on training the associates because as they say is not required to write awesome reports.
    4. Too many smoking partners to kill time in the office because one needs it after no work done at all and just keep sitting and chit-chatting and deciding where to go out for drinks the next time.

    Cons

    1. Poor Management.
    2. Too much politics
    3. Poor work culture
    4. Unprofessional bunch of seniors
    5. No learning

    Advice to Management

    Keep working with this kind of culture and employees and the day is near when the company will reach the point where it all started.
