Monotonous (though well compensated) role with out dated KPI's not in line with clients needs.
Senior Research Associate (Former Employee) –  Glasgow, Glasgow23 October 2018
Good work/life balance & well paid.
Ruthless CEO who would not think twice in pulling the rug from under people.
Good culture of promoting form within.
Job could be extremely monotonous, very little scope for implementing change to best practice.
High turnover of staff.

Dead end job
RESEARCH ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) –  London6 March 2018
The role is repetitive with no learning opportunities. Management is poor due to poor understanding of the market the comany operates in. Colleagues are good to get along with and very nice people.The hardest part of the job is handling the ludicrous demands of matrecs which effectively makes the company a call centre.

Nightmare
Research Associate (Former Employee) –  Glasgow29 January 2018
The positives to working in this role are the 9 - 5 Mon to Fri hours. The people are all outgoing and supportive as needs be in a telephone based role. Which is a great support.
The wages are higher than average.

The management are disorganized and frantic. The job is not as advertised.

Staff turnover is high because of office culture. Targets are chopped and changed frequently and pressure is focused on staff. Highly stressful environment, No flexibility.

Overall, it appears like your on to a dream job with opportunity for advancement and working abroad with great hours and a great salary. You'll soon find that this is spun to keep people coming to interviews as they have a 35% turnover annually. Prepare to be more stressed than you've ever been in your life.

Avoid
Resarch (Current Employee) –  Glasgow16 August 2017
The job is mundane and the upper management (USA) set unrealistic call targets. This is a glorified call centre which pays well.

If they changed the targets to focus more on the data that the clients actually pay for then they would have a much happier work place and less people would be leaving.

Great company in an exciting marketplace
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Birmingham3 October 2016
Great company in an exciting marketplace. The role is not necessarily an easy one but there's a good culture of teamwork and it's generally a pretty good bunch to work alongside. Experience within CRE is a bonus here but full training (and encouragement to learn) is provided. As with any targeted job, there can be ups and downs and at times the work-life balance is difficult to maintain but you get out what you put in.

Freelance position, left pretty much alone.
Freelance Photographer (Former Employee) –  nationwide30 July 2014
Taken on as freelance to the business on a 14 month contract.
Work had to be submitted on time, but other than that we were left alone to do it on our own initiative.
It became quite clear that I was doing the "dregs" that the employed staff couldn't/wouldn't do.
The work dried up about 6 months before the end of the contract, which left me in a very difficult position that I'm yet to recover from. Luckily the money was very good and if you had the time and energy it was quite possible to double the income.
Given the chance I'd go back tomorrow, just to top up the bank account.
Pros
good money, plenty spare time if you can work fast
Cons
no security, lonely work.
