    I worked at IRI full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    great travel opportunities, great opportunity to learn multiple CPG categories

    Cons

    Senior Management could listen to people more & understand the hard work Analysts & Consultants do for clients; HR should listen to workers as much as the listen to managers

    Advice to Management

    Stand with your Client Service Consultants & provide them with legitmate solutions when it comes to client issues

    I have been working at IRI part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hello...I am a self starter, but I need to see how things are done at first. Once I get my scanning rhythm pattern set at my stores (only have 2 for now which is perfect for my other time management commitments outside of this job). I like making my own workday within parameters of companies expectations. Focus my work and be around people plus be helpful to customers while in stores if they need me. Otherwise I...

    If you aren't into a repetitive task then you will get bored. I usually get bored easily but I make this job a challenge in some ways with math skills and searching for new product the company wants to determine shelf placement etc for their clients. So that keeps me focused. Its nice to be out of an office because I just want to work and not get caught up in office politics. I am a people person but I also like...

    Advice to Management

    The only thing I have a little trouble with is the technology and categories are all black and white. If there were color pull down menus it might help. I don't write code but maybe that would speed up the process. The phone, Samsung, has a sensitive connector for phone charging. Plus I am over 50 so its sometimes tricky to make sure I connect it correctly but that's just me. :) Whenever I charge it I find if...

      Approves of CEO

      I worked at IRI full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Good work life balance and good team on the client site

      Cons

      HR lies a lot and the HR partner wasn’t helpful to me. There is a big disconnect between upper corporate management and the client teams that are doing the job.

      Advice to Management

      Tell your employees what’s going on in the company and get their input to allign it with the corporate strategy decisions.

      I worked at IRI full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Opportunities to work from home (depending on your role/client), its a really great name on a resume, and you can work with some well known, industry-leading clients which is also good for name dropping on your resume/future interviews.

      Cons

      There are plenty. - If you get a bad client, you will be miserable. - The client facing roles themselves are extremely basic and not challenging in any capacity. Most time is spent pulling data from a database, formatting in PowerPoint, and sending via email. This holds true for those from the Analyst level through Principals, and quite frankly most of the work I could teach a junior high student how to pull because...
