    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    flexible hours (in the call center anyway) and great pay for an easy job.

    Cons

    upper management and direct managment talk down to part time employees and treat us like we aren't part of the company. Pretty much no communication between departments and often within. There is a "points" system for employees making it impossible to even take a sick day without penalty.

    Advice to Management

    look at employees as people and not numbers.


  2. "Going downhill fast..."

    Current Employee - Sales Department
    Current Employee - Sales Department
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Not a lot of layers between you and upper management
    Good health benefits
    Still have some good general benefits.

    Cons

    Arbitron used to be a company that prided itself on employee satisfaction. When the recession hit, that went away very quickly. Also, they are reliant on the radio industry which is a shrinking rather than growing industry. Arbitron is aware of this and is trying to diversify into cross-platform space but it has been very slow going. Overally, they are not a horrible company and they do value their employees but relative to what they were~ they aren't doing great. If they start succeeding in a space beyond radio, they may become more employee focused again.

    Advice to Management

    Seems to really like 'yes' people. Because questions are asked doesn't mean that they are "against" you. Move faster.
