Short term growing pains of a business scaling and maturing - but this is also the exciting element

    I worked at GfK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a group with good reputation. They have offices around the world. The communication is sometimes hard between offices. The location is great though.

    Cons

    It gets boring and pay is low.

    Advice to Management

    Drive your teams to success

    I have been working at GfK full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a company with a global presence and renown, there is experience and innovation happening, too bad it is being stiffled by the pressure on the entire industry. There are opportunities for growth if you are individually driven. Great people make up the office culture

    Cons

    Becoming very beaurocratic, despite drive in innovation, some tools do not seem to respond to client needs, no compensation for going the extra mile, significant pressure on profit leading to some internal frustration

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge, value, respect and reward the extra mile. Listen for suggestions, take part in implementation - it starts from the top
