Pros: Pizza Parties, Gift Certificate Incentives, Fun environment, great for students, make your own schedual
Cons: No healthcare, get hung up on a lot, telephone research, cold calling
Can be boring work at times, but they make it fun. You are doing good work for good causes. Have pizza parties when you make certain goals. Incentives to work certain hours. Can win stuff sometimes.
Basically call people on the phone for research studies for good causes. Kind of a for profit for the not for profit. I've done research for the CDC, California Highway Patrol, Amtrak, some political surveys, Rutgers U, Columbia U.
Work environment is relaxed. No real dress code, provided you dress appropriately. People talk all the time, read, do homework. There is no minimum of studies to complete, nothing to sell, not asking for money.
