    Pros

    The Survey of the American Consumer is the largest single source database in the U.S. Almost every advertising agency in the country subscribes to this database. The company continues to emerge from the recession thanks to the strong client renewal rate. The company overall is offers great benefits and plenty of time off.

    Cons

    The core business comes from the magazine industry and as the ad revenue continues to decline it will be harder for GfK MRI to exceed revenue targets. Opportunities for growth are few and the politics of a little company are awful. I suggest watching your back every step of the way if you work here.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to motivate your people and not compete against them. Respect the sales people. The sales team is on the front lines everyday making sure the company continues to grow.
