    I worked at MORPACE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, very flexible.
    Great compensation, benefits are good.
    Family owned business and it shows. Left several years ago and still keep in touch with people - it's a family, not just a job.
    Lots of room to grow and big on promoting from within.

    Cons

    Could use more training - I taught myself 90% of what I learned there.
    Still business casual - a little old fashioned.
    Review process is painful. Self reviews, peer reviews - it lasts for months and wastes time that could be spent on something productive. Like working.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees on what training would be useful.
    Rethink review process

    I have been working at MORPACE part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    10 years ago I would have had a list of all the great reasons to work here; today I can't think of a single one - aside for getting a steady paycheck...

    Cons

    Not all personnel or departments are held or treated the same. Departments/employees are not equally treated or respected for their contributions to the company as a whole unit

    Advice to Management

    Treat all departments equal, contributions are important from every level; from the lowest to the highest.

    Pros

    Strong platform for collecting "old school" primary research data

    Cons

    No creative solutions that drive innovation; Personal agendas are more important than talent development;

    Advice to Management

    Recruit professionals that have a unique and diverse perspective and training; Fire anyone who has been at the firm who has only worked at Morpace throughout their career

    I worked at MORPACE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great holiday and office parties. Research Executives are personable: know your name, send out birthday and Holiday cards through the mail, and friendly.

    Cons

    Communication problem between departments when management becomes involved, 42 hour 'standard' work week, the lunch / break rooms are depressing windowless and designed to encourage workers to eat at their desk.

    I worked at MORPACE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Morpace Inc. offers market research opportunities in a wide range of industries. If you can stay long enough, you will gain a lot of job experience in internet, mail, and phone studies (depending on industry). They have a great benefits package, paid time off, and holidays.

    Cons

    Industry teams act independenly from one another across the company. Meaning one team will have something lacking that another team has been using for a while. Even your personal job experience at Morpace Inc. is largely dependent on which team you are assigned to. Job training was poor even with the option of MorpaceU. Lot of office politics between management and employees. Not an effective company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to be more integrated across industry teams. Training must be uniform across the company for different levels of job entry. Need to resolve the issues behind high job turnover and limit office politics. Be open to a new people with different perspectives and stop group think.

    Pros

    Team oriented atmosphere. Friendly people.

    Cons

    Little regard for work-life balance. Weekend work is the norm. Pay is horrible, even with numerous years of experience. Frequent turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to stop playing favorites, be open to different personalities, and pay at or above the industry norms.

    I worked at MORPACE full-time

    Pros

    They give a lot of great development training. They seem to really care about their employees.

    Cons

    It was not well communicated about when they would transfer me from an intern to full-time or if they would. It did happen it was just a confusing process.

    Advice to Management

    I really enjoyed my time at morpace so keep on course I guess.
