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

    Pros

    Really good and supportive folks, who know market research thoroughly. It's a large organization with lots of resources to leverage. There are many hurdles that small companies often must wrestle with that Custom Research has managed.

    Cons

    There is so much to learn and so many good professionals with whom to collaborate, it can be somewhat daunting to find ones way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider Steve Jobs' advice about focusing on how less is more.

    I have been working at GfK full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, emphasis on employee engagement, several activities planned each month (both company-sponsored and unofficial happy hours), passionate and engaged staff who love research, work/life balanced greatly encouraged

    Cons

    Difficult working with inter-company partners (operations), sales are slow, perhaps not as innovative as our competitors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We sell ourselves to clients as being "global" though we don't leverage this perhaps as much as we could
