Hi, folks I am working as market research analyst at a startup company for last 9 months. Currently I am feeling work is kinda boring and also there is no scope for growth and learn new things in the company.Is it's better work at the same company to gain some experience or leave company and join MBA course so that I will get better placement in big companies where I can learn new things.

You will need to tell what really excites you @ work and also what exactly you want to learn so that fishes can really lend a good opinion.

If I was at your place I'll look for better opportunity in big market research firms instead of going for MBA

Hey Dallas folks!

I want to get to know the local private companies. I worked at a private company with 2-3k employees before my MBA. They had an amazing culture, but limited progression opportunities.

Anyone have recommendations on companies with great cultures in the Dallas/north of Dallas areas? (I live in the Plano/Allen/Mckinney area)

Hi I had someone recently tell me I should have my education and certifications above my experience on my resume.
