Market Research Associate Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Market Research Associate?

Market Research Associate in Mesa:
"Market research interviewer-survey taker."
Pros: Flexible schedule, casual atmosphere, fantastic co-workers and supervisors.
Cons: Breaks too few and far between-would like shorter ones more often as phone work becomes monotonous.

Market Research Associate in Denver:
"A job for the individual who want to explore and learn."
Pros: Every day I come to work I am doing something different. The projects I get to work on always pose new problems and new questions to be answered. This job allows me to utilize my natural curiosity and hunger for continually learning, resulting in very few slow or boring days.
Cons: If there is anything to be disliked about this job, it is the lower starting salary, with little benefit of educating yourself beyond a bachelor's degree. There is also a lot of companies who do shoddy research, who would be horrible employers as your growth in the career is inevitably stunted. There is also a large recent push on pseudoscientific and flashy "research" which will be difficult to avoid.
