I worked at Arbitron

Pros

Work from home.
Very interesting industry.

Cons

Radio centric, so they delivery radio data to the radio industry. However, they do have an agency product and Scarborough.
Co-workers are out to win at the cost of other co-workers. At any given time they will throw you under the bus.
Slow to progress with the times. Arbitron missed the boat.
Middle management heavy.
CEO announces no changes to be made then lays off many people at the end of the year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think it's too late. The internet has changed the way radio is listened to and you've been left behind.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, great technology.

    Cons

    New products and services that produce disorganization, not a good place to work if you are looking for advancement, gossip, management feels superior and don't give the needed support for success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management with experience and expertise in the areas they will work and who have a track record of leading teams to success.

    Pros

    flexible hours (in the call center anyway) and great pay for an easy job.

    Cons

    upper management and direct managment talk down to part time employees and treat us like we aren't part of the company. Pretty much no communication between departments and often within. There is a "points" system for employees making it impossible to even take a sick day without penalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look at employees as people and not numbers.
