Pros: Within a decade or two, Morning Consult will either be acquired by a Fortune 500 company or a Fortune 500 company itself. Working here has all the thrills of being strapped to a rocketship startup, with none of the toxic 12-hour-day ping-pong table culture or worries about whether the company will be here a month from now (it's a sustainable, tremendously profitable company). In the space of ~4 years, MC has gone from a daily email about healthcare legislation to one of the most sophisticated polling companies in the world, with world-class media and client services arms to boot. The sky is the limit.
Cons: Some stumbling blocks getting to this point. A couple of difficult months a year ago when the work started outpacing our capacity. Management has put a real priority on aggressively hiring and retaining talent since then, however, and it shows in how they treat employees.
