Company Culture

Not friendly to employees

Teamwork

Team members too busy with their own area.

Freedom to work independently

Each department is on their own no support from co workers or management.

Internal Communication

Poorly taught class structure

Workplace Safety

Not very safe.

Challenging Work

Since they really dont teach you much its sink or swim. You are on your own.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Before sending new employees or regular employees out on sales floor, I would suggest More hands on classes that teach employees how to their job.

What I like about the company

Nothing much

What I dislike about the company

Its not a safe place to work but then again its a construction warehouse.

Support from management

Support varies per Field Supervisor, most are pretty accessible and helpful.

Teamwork

Every week there is a team conference call. Most Supervisors encourage FI's to glean from one another. Most FI's are usually willing to help each other.

Freedom to work independently

I worked alone.

Internal Communication

Questions and concerns are generally addressed quickly by management.

Gender Equality

There was a good gender mix in my training classes.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The average age of most Field Interviewers is 30+.

Overall compensation for your work

RTI pays its Field Interviewers better than many other research companies.

Office / Work Environment

Field Interviewers work remotely, you control your work environment.

Work-Life Balance

A minimum of 20-25 hours per week is expected, but you set your own schedule on the whole.

Company Image

RTI International has a good reputation.

Job Security

There are longitudinal studies that are ongoing for decades. Other studies have set parameters. As long as you perform well enough, you will always have a job.

Challenging Work

Working nights and weekends in various regions has its challenges. This is a niche job. People skills are very important. Moral depends largely on the Field Supervisors. Some FS's are micromanagers and others are too hands off. Most are just fine.

Inclusive / Diverse

My studies were staffed with a diverse body of Field Interviewers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Do not force Field Interviewers to return to homes where the Respondents have been hostile in their refusal to participate in a study. Be more understanding of safety issues in unsavory regions.

What I like about the company

I like the pay. I like the variety of studies. I like working with people from every walk of life.

What I dislike about the company

I dislike working with Field Supervisors who are micromanagers. It can be tough to conduct studies in inclement weather.

Company Culture

Treat every employee like an idiot!

Support from management

Non-existent,

Teamwork

Teamwork is not encouraged. As an employee you are told by supervisors not to talk to other employees.

Freedom to work independently

Zero

Internal Communication

Communication is not encouraged. Your supervisor is always right.

Gender Equality

What is that? 90 percent of abusive white women equals gender equality?

Attitude towards older colleagues

Abuse them!

Career Development

They don’t want you to advance at all!

Overall compensation for your work

So, so,

Office / Work Environment

Very similar to a prison: do what you’re told or else!

Environmental Friendliness

Ha!

Work-Life Balance

Their response: Do you want to work, or do you want to stay home?

Company Image

The Headway employees DO NOT answer the phone at all. That’s beneath them! And the RTI support team is a whole bunch of sold out women!

Job Security

Not at all.

Handicapped Accessibility

Don’t believe in that!

Workplace Safety

You are on your own.

Challenging Work

Work is ok. The conditions horrible!

Inclusive / Diverse

That’s a joke! Only white, abusive women get to advance.

What I like about the company

Only the type of work.

What I dislike about the company

Their attitude, their culture and the lack of employee support.
