    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.

    I have been working at NPD full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual Attire, Flexible Hours, Usually Quiet atmosphere

    Cons

    Room for movement if you are previous friends with management or work lots of OT, used to be casual work environment but suddenly changed, supposedly allow telework but only good friends of management, not enough to be good at your job, advancements at Reston office are given to those without lives that do poor work but lots of OT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually care about Reston, work on advancing the non friends of management that know what they are doing, Operations needs to work the percentages the current model is a waste and not effective
