Burtch Works offers pinpoint perfect placement for highly
qualified marketing and quantitative professionals.
More than number crunchers, market researchers are the masters of competitive intelligence and customer insights. Sometimes known as attitudinal researchers, they want to get into people’s heads to figure out what they think, what they want, and what motivates them.
Marketing scientists focus on answering the “what if” questions. They know that the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior, and by developing sophisticated mathematical and statistical models, they extract the best information available based on real findings—not assumptions.

Right Candidate in the Right Job
Finding the right marketing or quantitative specialist can be an elusive proposition. Companies often rely on job boards and LinkedIn to identify new talent. Unfortunately, that can be a time consuming, and costly process—and not terribly effective. Qualified candidates are scarce, generally happy in their current positions, and not looking to the big board job-search sites for opportunities. We use our expansive network of connections, and database of candidates to secure the individual who will be the best fit for your company. By using our in-depth knowledge of the industry, we can find qualified candidates accurately and efficiently.
We understand that your business needs to go beyond technical know-how. We can hone in on the one professional who will bring the optimum mix of technical expertise and business savvy necessary to become a marketing leader in your organization. Bringing on a new hire is always a costly endeavor. Burtch Works will maximize your investment by ensuring that you hire the right person the first time.
Our business is the business of change. In addition to finding that singular person to meet a specific, one-time opening, we work closely with our clients on their long-term planning and manpower solutions. We have been instrumental in helping clients define their strategic hiring goals, and dedicate ourselves to staffing substantial teams over the course of years.
We believe open communication and a transparent recruiting process are essential to our client relationships. You can count on Burtch Works to meet every challenge with honesty and integrity.

What to Expect in the Near Term
Author Robert Heinlein once wrote: “There is no such thing as luck. There is only adequate or inadequate preparation to cope with a statistical universe”. While it’s good to know where you stand in the current market, it’s just as important to stay abreast of the outlooks for more senior level positions to plan your career path. Here are some observations and guidelines about the patterns we are seeing in this new economic cycle:
$150,000 to $250,000
Within corporations, a director or VP typically manages multiple layers with upwards of 20 staffers. At this level, it is important to have well-honed leadership skills and to provide strategic vision. In consulting firms, the ability to develop new business becomes important at this level and will usually require heavy travel.
$150,000 to $250,000
This level usually offers the first significant opportunity to develop managerial skills. A solidly performing senior analyst who demonstrates mentoring and leadership abilities, in addition to business acumen and initiative, could be promoted into this role. It is highly unusual for a senior analyst to change companies and move up to manager level simultaneously, as most firms prefer to hire people with demonstrated management experience or to promote from within.
Senior Analytical Specialist
$80,000 to $180,000
As data-driven decision making becomes ubiquitous in business, statisticians as individual contributors have been able to command greater salaries. This is especially true if their programming skills (SAS or R) are well honed and their statistical know-how is exceptional. There are many technology based firms that are driving these salaries up. It is important to take on direct reports and/or business development responsibilities to ensure career advancement.
$65,000 to $90,000
There is keen need for quantitative specialists with one-to-five years’ experience. The stronger the candidate’s skills with software like SAS or R, and the larger the datasets, the more the analyst will be in demand. Now is the time to develop your communication skills, as every employer expects their analysts — especially senior analysts — to be able to deliver quantitative information to a nontechnical audience. Candidates at this level are now receiving multiple offers if they are conducting an active job search.
$55,000 to $70,000
Data is more plentiful than ever due to the fact that more and more industries are capitalizing on their ability to make informed business decisions based on statistics. The rise in raw data has called for a great number of statisticians to support the need. As a result, entry-level quantitative professionals are becoming a hot commodity in the blossoming market.
