    No direct competitor in TV Ratings

    Cons

    Private equity group buy-out was "death knell" to a legendary leader in media & marketing research.
    Ongoing company-wide layoffs each year.
    U.S. workers replaced by 3-yr Visa workers from India through Tata Industries.
    Poor management.
    Horrible, defeated morale of workers.

    Media research is a unique entity and cannot be operated like running a widget factory.
