  1.  

    Not happy with the lack of supervisory guidance. Training is too short. Supervisors & Leads do not help new employees.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits after your 90-day probationary period.

    Cons

    Not enough training. No supervisory advice nor feedback. Supervisors sit at their desk and do not intermingles with associates to see how they are doing or if they have any questions - particularly new hires fresh out of a short training period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The supervisors and leads would never make it at a company such as AT&T, Verizon, or other in-bound/out-bound customer service centers.

    Pros

    The Human Resources department stresses that Arbitron is committed to employee growth and satisfaction. However, in my epxerience, it all depends on the particular department that one is with that determines the quality of management, growth potential and work-life balance. I would definitely recommend the company to other people.

    Cons

    There is a lot of senior management, so every project has to be filtered. It takes a while for any little thing to be approved. The final project is never as amazing as the initial concept after being approved by the higher up's. Ideas aren't very fresh; the senior management is a bit stale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire smart people then get out of their way. What is the point in bringing in talented people if they can't express their talent and help move the company forward?
