    I worked at Arbitron as a contractor (more than an year)


    The work was interesting and some of the people where great.


    Arbitron had acquired other product and companies over the years, including many of their competitors. They *WERE* the 600 lb gorilla. Being at the top of the heap is nice, but I never sensed any urgent pressure to change or improve. The products were heavily "siloed" with little product empires scattered around. I've worked at other companies where management frequently reminded everyone where the company stood in relation to the competition and the consequences for a product not being "first to market". Arbitron, on the other hand, had lots of creative, intelligent, driven people who didn't have a common threat. Imagine a zoo with hundreds of hungry lions all together. Any prey is quicky chased down and devoured. Arbitron management didn't feed their lions, so they occasionally turned on each other. Not a pretty sight.
