    I have been working at Info-Tech Research Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Research specialists that are hired right out of university have great learning and development opportunities. The London research department culture is very collaborative. My colleagues are very smart. The culture is fun -- lots of philosophy jokes, word play, and technology discussions. The company is mostly respectful of the work-life balance, especially in London research. Management is starting to more seriously...

    Cons

    The company is very sales-oriented. The Toronto office research department has been mismanaged resulting in extremely high turnover. Fast pace of change means that poorly performing initiatives are ended quickly, but also that good initiatives can also be ended. Many managers are not trained on how to manage effectively, but they are starting to train them on this. Compensation is good in London for new grads, but...

    Advice to Management

    Continue the new focus on training and developing research analysts. Continue to focus more on leading and directing, less on micromanaging.

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Info-Tech Research Group full-time

      Pros

      -One of the friendliest and smartest people I've worked with -Office has cool perks

      Cons

      -More like a call center (120 dials to sometimes 200) and prefers to be kept this way. All about short term rather than long term relationship building -No real process or strategy in tackling accounts (example --strategy from our management. Here's your region. Find all the accounts within that look promising, cold call 120 dials a day minimum using a script about how many members we have and how fast we're growing...

      I have been working at Info-Tech Research Group full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      I've only been at McLean & Company (a division of Info-Tech but essentially the same company) for just over a month now, but it seems like an amazing place to be. Pros: -Uncapped earning potential with a generous commission structure (I don't know if I'm even allowed to share it here) -Competitive base salary -New London location -Games room with billiards, foosball, and other arcade games as well as PS4, leather...

      Cons

      As it's only been a month so far, I don't have many cons to mention as I'm still in the honeymoon phase. They are growing fairly quickly and things can sometimes get lost in the shuffle.

      Advice to Management

      None as of yet.
