I worked at GfK full-time (less than an year)

Pros

A wealth of very structured tools, techniques, systems and methodologies to "sell" to clients.
Vast global network of offices as well as outsourcing partners to assist in getting things through the pipeline to meet deadlines.

Cons

Poor quality control (or any control) when it comes to outsourced operational services (programming and data processing) ... having a vast network of outsourcing partners is not an advantage if you don't monitor them, or properly instruct them!!
Tons of bureaucracy that sometimes gets in the way of productivity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Institute better QC procedures for both internal and external services

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO
