Yes, but not since 2012. Industry moves slowly... what intrigues you about it?

Macro business trends, larger brand positioning strategies outside of advertising, basically I'm under the impression that clients find market research information more useful in driving their business than digital marketing performance. Correct me if I'm wrong

client side analytics/market research gets repetitive real fast. unless you're at a HUGE client where you there are a multitude of brands to work on, there are only so many types of research you can do [and that's speaking from experience]

I assumed you meant you'd be interested in working for a market research supplier, but maybe I misunderstood??

No you're correct, Mintel for example

Depending on the place, you MAY have an opportunity to level up your skills in ways you may not at your agency. In Research functions you want to find out more about the specifics of the projects and methods you will be working on in the first 3 to 6 months on the job when you interview, if you can.
