    I worked at MavenMagnet full-time

    Pros

    If you like market research, there cannot be a better place to work and learn cutting edge ways of doing market research. Great group of people, lot of dedication and fun at the same time.

    Cons

    A bit stressful at times, but nothing to whine about.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    I worked at MavenMagnet full-time

    Pros

    The work they do sounds contemporary. Co-workers are cooperative mostly because they know the unsupportive nature of upper management .

    Cons

    No respect for employees' personal time, can be called easily on weekends as well to work or simply sit ideal in the office. Lack of communication between upper and middle management makes things worse for employees to feel connected to the place. No room for new ideas since the work has a rigid set format.

    Advice to Management

    Please trust your employees if you've hired them from the bests. Be more open to discussions and brainstorming sessions if you claim to be doing market research.

    I worked at MavenMagnet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. Other employees are friendly 2. That's it

    Cons

    1. No work life balance - an avg of 12 hrs per day. Sometimes even SATURDAY 2. No trust or respect for employees - cannot take the laptop home because of the precious software 3. The "boss" has no people skills 4. Without the know how of the software, the nature of the work reduces to only data entry 5. No time management or work management. No respect for others time

    Advice to Management

    1. Trust your employees 2. Hire interns or graduates. You know a qualified MBA is not required for this job

    Pros

    Pays well. Opportunity to work on top global brands.

    Cons

    Late working hours every day. Working on weekends too. More than 12 hrs of work a day on an average. No work life balance at all!

    Advice to Management

    Look after those who work hard for you. Money isn't the only important thing, mental peace is equally important!

    If you stay late, which you definitely will, the company will reimburse

    Cons

    1. All project, process are mismanaged. very poor ethical culture. Everybody wants to get out 2. Blood sucking company, long work hours, minimum pay 3. No cab facility for woman employees. Many times they are pressurized to work late( due to client given deadline) and without cab facility, its not safe for woman them to go home late night 4. Management is manner less I wish there was a negative scale for work life...
