Former Employee - Account Associate in Port Washington, NY

I worked at NPD full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good work/life balance, good reputation for quality of research, laid back environment, nice people for the most part

Cons

Politics run rampant; difficult to advance past manager level; pay is not very competitive; too many silos of knowledge - ineffective intraorganizational processes; management has a strong tendency to play favorites with employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

the growth in scope of research coverage you are successfully pursuing is coming at the cost of effectiveness within certain industries you cover

    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.
