    Pros

    Always an opportunity to get more responsibility
    Diverse work environment
    H1B/T1 friendly
    Exposure to high profile companies. Way to get your name out there
    You are on your own for pretty much everything. This may not be a plus to everybody.
    Industry is changing. May be a good fit if you get the right wave.
    Company overrates biz development skills.

    Cons

    The company has a serious communication problem. It is awful for such a small enterprise.
    You are underpaid unless you are one of the Director dinosaurs still out there. Worse if you are under visa...senior management is not clear with regards to bonus structure (this may be intentional) and you are stuck. Forget about asking them for development.
    Low potential for growth
    Industry as a whole is at risk. Google is killing syndicated research companies. Low growth.
    Morale is always low. Limited collaboration among peers. Everybody is always swamped with heavy workload. Management could not care less about execution.
    Despite being visa sponsor friendly, company is not ready to handle foreign workforce.
    High employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate! Bring fresh blood to senior management. Be clear about compensation. Encourage top talent with development and $! Reconsider a deep strategic planning for growth opportunities. Be fresh! Great HR asset in the company that you. Get rid of under performers.
