    Current Employee - Senior Research Associate in Horsham, PA
    Current Employee - Senior Research Associate in Horsham, PA
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Recognized within the market research industry - but not outside the industry or among potential clients
    Choice of many different industry sectors/methods to gain experience with
    Worldwide, can move to another location

    Cons

    "Survival" environment due to too much change in teams, managers, responsibilities, accounts
    Distrust and blame among employees for each other and management, due to fear of layoffs
    Employees treated with disrespect at times, by their managers or peers
    Management not serious about following up on employee concerns expressed in annual survey
    HR not helpful to employees when applying for new internal positions or addressing issues
    A job, not a career

    Advice to Management

    Fix all of the "cons" sited and probably more. No one speaks up in meetings anymore, that's a problem when people are afraid of possible backlash just for expressing opinions or making suggestions (even positive ones). TNS will continue to lose good people to other companies/competitors once the economy improves. Hard to keep finding/training good people. Customers suffer due to internal issues and not consistent delivery of in depth insights, value
