    I worked at TNS North America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Blue chip clients, great co-workers, a few good services, many client relationships, exciting opportunities for excellent research, no skimping on T&E

    Cons

    Extremely poor management by holding company (Kantar), biased against U.S. citizens, no plan for organic growth, no interest in human capital development, no understanding of the US market research business, totally internal politics driven, no concept of what makes a good research service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace Kantar management with those who understand the U.S. market, develop a growth plan which includes both quality people and services, stop favoring know-nothing Brits.

    I worked at TNS North America

    Pros

    As with much of this industry, TNS continues to struggle and face a downward spiral, however, there are still some very talented, good and nice people left there.
    TNS has a size that should give it an advantage in the marketplace.

    Cons

    Leadership continues a strategy of making the offer *less* differentiated. This keeps sales down, which means they need to get rid of people (layoffs, voluntary separation, etc...) which waters down the TNS product, which keeps sales down, which leads to more layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One cannot cut the business as a growth strategy. And trying to be the Walmart of market research is not really a strategy.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
