Current Employee - Product Manager in Port Washington, NY
Current Employee - Product Manager in Port Washington, NY

I have been working at NPD full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Work-Life balance
Attracts self-motivated people
Promotes internal transfers - opportunity to gain expertise and skill sets in areas you don't have past experience with

Cons

percent increases are based off of the salary you started with. So as you grow in the organization, all of your promotions/increases will always be incremental, based on what your incoming salary was. If you came in with a low paying salary, you will always be on the low end of the pay scale, no matter how much you grow.

    Former Employee - Market Research Associate in Port Washington, NY
    Former Employee - Market Research Associate in Port Washington, NY

    I worked at NPD full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Convenient location if you're in Queens or Nassau. Friendly culture among the rank and file.

    Cons

    You only get ahead if your part of the clique. Highly political company. Low salaries for the industry. Have no problems cutting loose employees with long tenure. Can't seem to get their act together vis-a-vis the technology (some departments are still using a DO based mainframe, stopped one upgrade in mid-stream to go in a completely different direction). Upper management is arrogant about the appeal of the company to potential recruits. HR is evasive, no transparency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the knowledge base you're sacrificing to politics.
