    I worked at Prolific full-time

    Pros

    Company has some outstanding people across the organization. Some very talented and skilled technical resources.

    Cons

    Company has a goal but no plan that is shared with the organization. Have had a lot of turnover recently that has affected the company personality. The sales organization lost both of it's senior managers, one was a part owner, in the past year. Several other long time (15+ years) senior managers have left since the new president has come on board.

    Advice to Management

    Move from a monarchy to more of a democracy where input is taken from first & second level managers and not just what the president dictates. Problem is not the President or CEO it is more a lack of input / push back from senior management. If there is a two year plan then share it in detail with the organization and accept some feedback.

    I have been working at Prolific part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    because it is a well-paid job, easy tasks are being done, there are not many employees from Serbia.

    Cons

    because they rarely give jobs, a lot of time passes while they assign you a poll, you should pay more attention to the fact that all users receive polls equally on a daily basis.

    Pros

    I have worked for Prolifics UK for the last 5 years now. I had a shaky start but the sales and management teams were very supportive and accessible, they helped me to develop as a professional and always praised our achievements. I have recommended two ex colleagues of mine to the company and they are also pleased with their employment.

    Cons

    Difficult to find cons. I would say probably being away from home when travelling to clients could be a con for people with young family, but some others love that life style.

    Advice to Management

    When I joined Prolifics , it was a very small company in the UK. That is now changing and the management team has worked very hard to make a success story out of the small but growing team of professionals. Congratulations to them !.
