    I worked at TNS Global full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexible working offered in operations, steady employment global company. sense of job for life. can move round company or the building for years in similar roles and keeping a steady pay check.

    Cons

    flexible working means lots of students, part-timers, housewives/husbands or those looking to do things after retiring not the most fired up of staff useful for steady day to day but way too many of this type. Those that do want to develop and add value get frustrated and move on - usually out of the company and those that don't are incredibly possessive and territorial about their roles, refusing to share knowledge on the antiquated systems. Very political, partisan environment, passive aggressive leaders and staff. Weak HR not backing up any leader in managing staff out. HR have a higher staff turnover than other parts of the business. From clients perspective, things may seem smooth but underneath they are struggling - a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage meritocracy, less politics, document things to share knowledge and avoid knowledge hoarding and in doing so avoiding small fiefdoms occurring. Pay market rates and insist on the best staff rather than trying to get by on 2nd rate systems, cultures and people. Be aware of grass roots situation, away from ivory tower.

    Interesting work and a good atmosphere however most people justifiably feel underpaid

    Current Employee - Research Assistant in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at TNS Global full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very interesting work and a good focus on clients. You are often involved in some truly groundbreaking research. The agency will put you through the MRS exam which is very useful and all-in-all the people there are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    You often end up working long hours as a researcher and unfortunately the industry just does not offer the money to match this which is why a lot of people leave to pursue other careers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To keep your best staff you have realistically got to up your salaries otherwise you are going to be stuck with people who are not good enough to get jobs at management consultants and specialist agencies.
