I have been working at Arbitron

Pros

Not a lot of layers between you and upper management
Good health benefits
Still have some good general benefits.

Cons

Arbitron used to be a company that prided itself on employee satisfaction. When the recession hit, that went away very quickly. Also, they are reliant on the radio industry which is a shrinking rather than growing industry. Arbitron is aware of this and is trying to diversify into cross-platform space but it has been very slow going. Overally, they are not a horrible company and they do value their employees but relative to what they were~ they aren't doing great. If they start succeeding in a space beyond radio, they may become more employee focused again.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seems to really like 'yes' people. Because questions are asked doesn't mean that they are "against" you. Move faster.

    The call center could be overly loud sometimes making it difficult to concentrate on the task at hand and hear responses.
