Pros

Great place to learn analytical skills, independent work environment, lots of opportunities to write surveys and market effectiveness reports, overall a valuable experience.

Cons

Very limited engagement with other employees, manager micro-managed all the time, boring, no benefits, no opportunities to be hired on as employee

Advice to Management

I don't think i'm qualified to give advice to the leadership at BNP Media. I am thankful that they offered paid opportunities in the worse time of the recession

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Decent benefits. 36.5 hour work week, half day Fridays during the summer. Some decent people to work with.

    Cons

    Senior management is fairly incompetent at competing in the changing marketplace. No corporate strategy has been set or communicated to the employees. Employees are treated as butts in the seats - everyone is replaceable. Director level is filled with friends and family who treat their department as a fiefdom. Politics are rampant. Don't cross those with ties to ownership.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as a resource. Get a strategy, figure out how to compete and encourage your employees to participate in your plans.

    Pros

    The company provides steady work. They keep you plenty busy. BNP provides somewhat progressive benefits and a decent work environment, unless business is in a downturn (in which case, many of these perks are withdrawn). A base, 35.25 hour work week is nice and, during the summer, the company gives you a half-day off every other Friday.

    Cons

    The company is rife with nepotism. The caliber and competency of certain managers, especially mid-level divisional management, is sorely lacking. Being a family-owned enterprise, it is run much like a fiefdom. "Little Rockefellers" is how I'd describe ownership. They exude a certain arrogance and seem to think Dale Carnegie is the solution to all that ails them.

    Advice to Management

    Clear out the mid-level management deadwood. There's a lot of it.
