    I have been working at Technology Business Research full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with, on a personal level, they treat their employees very well. The President of the company is a great guy and he really connects with his employees. The company is headed in the right direction I believe and has garnered some real recognition within the industry. I did not work on the research side of the house so I do not have much insight into that portion of the company on a day-to-day basis. The company meetings are informative and the suite at Hampton Beach Casino is a great perk for the employees to take advantage of!

    Cons

    The middle and upper-middle management is where the issues lie. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians, so to speak. Everyone in management has a different direction on where you should spend your time and it can really lead to frustration for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get everyone on the same page and do not micromanage everything.

    I worked at Technology Business Research full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity abounds in this organization! As the company seeks to maintain its revenue growth and expansion, chances to develop new product and refresh older programs are to be seized. The core players are easily identified and offer to clearest path to advancement.

    Cons

    While merit will help to secure positive attention, there is a level of politicking that runs throughout such a small organization. Seeks start-up commitment without the vesting.

    I have been working at Technology Business Research full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    flexibility in hours, still small firm

    Cons

    run like a family business, not much planning or reality based (regression analyses - nope) market and account based collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    hire someone to run the firm for you.

    Pros

    A nice place if you want to end up being an IT analyst because TBR has good clients

    Cons

    Though TBR spends on developing employee skills, most employees seem to lack motivation and the environment becomes negative very often. Some managers just like to control everything.

    Advice to Management

    Some senior managers need to share more information and improve communication with their teams before the teams start falling apart

    Pros

    Convenient location in seacoast of NH, reasonable work hours

    Cons

    The story told to the syndicated clients about the research methodology is not accurate - they give analysts too many companies to cover and not enough bandwidth to add value. They merely regurgitate the earnings call information. They don't talk to the firm they way they used to to add the additional insights.

    Advice to Management

    provide more constructive coaching and support

  8. "Very Positive."

    Pros

    Technology Business Research is a great place to work because of its relaxed and accommodating culture, as well as the support provided by upper management.

    Cons

    The business is small but growing which means some of the work related processes are less organized or structured as opposed to a more developed company.

    Advice to Management

    From what I have observed management at Technology Business Research is moving the company in the right direction, as we just past the $10 million revenue mark this past year.

    Pros

    Regular recognition in the press and a fairy high level of national exposure

    Cons

    The company was very cheap on things like travel budget and raises. But it was a small company that needed to be cost conscious.

    Advice to Management

    They need to improve their role as mentors to the more junior analysts.
