    Pros

    The graduate scheme is structured and gives members really good training, great experience at such an early stage of your career, and encourages collaboration and discussion within the graduate group.

    Cons

    The salaries aren't reflective of the amount of work involved, progression is slow and overly rigid which means there is a really high level of churn among junior staff.

    Advice to Management

    Work with senior management to enable more progression options at a junior level.

    Pros

    Great place to work in terms of socials, culture and work/life balance. Depending on the team you're given, you will have a lot of exposure to higher stakeholders at clients and be expected to present data confidently from the get go

    Cons

    Unless you're particularly interested in market research, it won't be the job for you. Elements of the job become mundane & repetitive, and scope to move around teams isn't encouraged unless there is a bigger gap that needs to be filled.

    Advice to Management

    More openness & transparency is needed, particularly when it comes to targets, budgets, focus on commercials and supporting junior staff members.
