    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 rate in analytics staff. 7) There is no time to optimize or improve existing analytics platforms or methodology. More importantly, management doesn't care if you try to optimize things. 8) Analytics methodology is completely outdated. 9) Benefits are pretty bad. Employees have to be employed at Luth for at least 1 year before they can take advantage of the retirement benefits. 10) a second chance company that employs felons.

    Pros

    Casual work environment with relaxed to no dress code. Depending on what department you work in it can be a lot of fun and you will receive some support. Giving three stars for the people and department I worked in and the manager of that department. Also for the ability to work from home.

    Cons

    During my interview the owner of the company asked very inappropriate and specific questions about my personal life. She also made it specific that this was not a normal 9-5 job but that they reward for overtime. This turned out to be minimally true. In the year I worked there I worked so much overtime that I was told that I could not put it on my timecard, however was still expected to have open availability for it. There is also limited upward mobility within the company. The pay is so under the market average that people who work full-time (and not in the phone room) barely make a living wage. Sales is given their commissions even when there is no profit on the job and when those of us doing the work up-sale things they still receive commission on that. The company says they care about their employees but all they care about is the owner of the company making money. Higher ups are overworked just as much as lower level employees. Wouldn't be surprised if the owner sells the company in the next 2-5 years.

    I worked at Luth Research

    Pros

    Work from home options if needed Friendly staff Flexible working hours, can determine your schedule within reason Comprehensive benefits package

    Cons

    Company management style has not grown with size of company. Tendency to micro-manage. Senior management does not empower staff to lead in the areas where they are subject matter experts. Clear, open and honest communication is not a part of company culture. Heavy politics and lack of information sharing. Little to no growth potential. Salaries not competitive to market rates.
