    Pros

    Flexible hours and talented co-workers are the best aspects. They really show they care during personal crisis. Social events and professional groups make the work bearable. Smaller perks like dinner are great!

    Cons

    Under staffed - they expect you to work a lot of OT and weekend hours. They do not celebrate big accomplishments on work tasks. Recognition is all political. Not easy to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Do not work us so lean. Celebrate every publish with in teams more. Thank us for the OT we put in. Create room for advancement for retention.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at J.D. Power is because you feel part of a family because all your work is interconnected with everyoine else. No one has one specific project that is solely theirs which helps you learn knew things every day by collaborating.

    Cons

    Unfortunately they downsize frequently, but what company doesn't? Also, it is actually a testament that they are not afraid to take risks and sternly do what is best to keep the company up and running,

    Advice to Management

    Keep making your employees feel welcome. It makes for a wonderful work environment.

    Pros

    People that work there are great - work schedule can be relatively flexible depending on your department/superiors

    Cons

    Company stuck in the past, everything moves at a snail's pace, too much red tape to get anything done. Pay is low for the industry, and promotion rates are far behind the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Take interest in the growth of your employees or you will continue to lose all of the good ones to other opportunities

    Pros

    The parent company (McGraw-Hill) treats people better than any big company I've ever seen. When my group was cut, the layoffs were done with genuine kindness.

    Cons

    JDPA is still trying to move beyond the 40-years-of-paper-surveys image, and not sure who they're going to become
