I have been working at GfK full-time

Pros

Some divisions promote quickly, flexible schedules and work arrangements

Cons

Underpaid and overworked. Some sectors do just enough to say they're not sexist, although women are valued less than men.

    I worked at GfK full-time

    Pros

    A few smart people in certain corners of the organization

    Cons

    The rare smart corners are not appreciated by management. Company has grown a US presence through ugly acquisition after acquisition, which they quilt together and frame as a matrix. Some of the companies brought into the fold were outstanding entities in their own right but are misunderstood (or totally not understood) by senior management and driven into the ground. Horrific work life balance and constant, daily pressures to make money They've forgotten about quality and accuracy, about providing insight and action. They talk about being consultative but are far from it, as they search for "products" to offer clients. They embrace the philosophy of an "at will" work force and have no loyalty or decency when it comes to their employees.
