    I worked at Luth Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked on the analytics team, so I can only speak about that environment. Most of the positive reviews about Luth come from the admin or phone room staff. 1) sometimes it's possible to work from home if you obtain permission from your supervisor in advance.

    Cons

    1) fast-paced working environment with unreasonable deadlines. 2) everyone on the Analytics team is overloaded with deliverables. 3) Management and sales teams have no experience in big-data analytics or platforms, so they often oversell/overpromise unreasonable deliverables to the clients. 4) The analytics platforms are completely out-dated. 5) There is a lot of self-learning that needs to be done. 6) Massive turnover...

    Advice to Management

    1) Hire big data analytics manager/director with a proven track record in analytics to modernize the analytics platforms and methodology at Luth. 2) Increase the number of analysts on the analytics team. 3) The sales team has too much control over analytics deliverables to the client.

    I worked at Luth Research part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Met some good colleagues, the product is interesting.

    Cons

    Turn over: people just disappear, in most cases while they work on important projects, and no one cares (from a human perspective I was simply shocked). Total lack of organization, with jobs finished at the very last minute. Company not to consider from a professional perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Responsibilities are not clear, neither what direction the Company aims at.

    I have been working at Luth Research full-time

    Pros

    This place can be a stepping stone for some who are new to the field, but other than that this company has nothing else to offer. Also, don't get fooled by the positive reviews those are from the people either in HR or the call center who are told to write those reviews from the managers/CEO, for anyone who is looking to make a career or even make a decent salary, this place is just terrible. Again, avoid this company.

    Cons

    The turnover rate at this company is crazy high, people will leave as soon as they realize what they have gotten into. The few who choose to stay behind are not treated well either, no raises, no reviews, salaries are way below the market value. The culture is toxic, no one likes to be here, everyone one is looking for alternatives and just linger around until something comes along. The management has no interest in changing...

    I have been working at Luth Research part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I am entering into my third year presently with Luth Research.The skills aquired thus far have proven to be invaluable. I enjoy going to work daily and have grown to feel the atmosphere and entire team to be just as comforting as home.

    Cons

    Lack of consensus between supervisors internally causes intimadation of questions. Requested information or resources necessary to get the job done can go unanswered or forgotten.

    Advice to Management

    Well communicated intents are easily understood and supportive, desisive direction ends with accomplishement of any objective.

    Pros

    A good place to start your market research career and to learn the basics and fundamentals of project planning, management and surveys.

    Cons

    Not a place to develop a career in market research as the work is repetitive and there is no senior management career support.
