Former Employee - Manager of Operations In the Vide/Games Sector in Port Washington, NY
Former Employee - Manager of Operations In the Vide/Games Sector in Port Washington, NY

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

Pros

good pay, nice parking, nice office

Cons

I was hired in the Video Games Sector. Be careful of this department- it is a bunch of recent college graduates and this is their first job. They are very gossipy, unprofessional and play favorites. After 9 days of employment, a manager (who i had NO communication or interaction with) spoke to me in a very unprofessional manner. She actually sent me an email that said in all capital letters "WE NEED TO TALK". They provided absolutely NO training. There idea of training.. is to have a 21 year old train you- who is intimidated by you, and feels that their job is being threatened. Good luck - my advice is its an ok company but stay away from the Video and Entertainment Departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

rethink who you have in management positions. Provide more management training.

    Pros

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

    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
