    Pros

    Well known brand with a global footprint
    Lots of opportunity to learn
    Great company for early career

    Cons

    Way too much work for a staff that is already stretched too thin
    Goals are unrealistic as a result
    Work/life balance is not modeled and not encouraged--you WILL be expected to check email/voicemail and work on vacation
    Pay is below market, which is absurd for the world leader in market research

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay as much attention to your people as you do to your shareholders
