    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at GfK NOP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The agile working means that you can do a couple of days a week from home, or work offset hours. Some of my team live in the midlands so are down less often and one lives in France. The setup is right for this, with all the basic technology provided, but also the culture is good, with all meetings having a digital dial in option. As businesses in the industry go they are facing the same challenges but the MOI division in particular is building a great culture.
    They are also having a real drive to reduce the constraints around horizontal moves.

    Cons

    It is a big agency so it is the same big corporate stuff, forms to fill out, global driven initiatives etc. But no worse than you would expect and better than a couple of the large rivals i have worked for in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the commitment to agile working, don't back out if it gets tricky because one person takes the mick. Ensure the horizontal move message has made it all the way down to the bottom from the top.

    Pros

    Good training, good investment in junior staff and fun place to work. Excellent office location too (Blackfriars Bridge)

    Cons

    Nothing unusual to the market research world - lots of tedious data work to be done! The sector split also meant that you could become quite narrowly focussed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the junior staff in order to keep them motivated. Junior forums etc. were a valuable tool to the perception of being listened to.

    I worked at GfK NOP (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible, perfect for students & people looking for a part time non serious job.

    Cons

    You are just a number. I worked there for 5 years and they wouldn't give me a reference. I found out I wasn't the only one. Wish I had been told this much earlier.

    Advice to Management

    Try and get to know your staff.
