    I worked at NPD as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's very easy to get time with top management to ask any questions you have about the company, their area of expertise, etc.
    People work there often for many years, so it's likely that any person can point you in the right direction to get things done outside of your department.
    Summer hours available to interns.

    Cons

    It's hard to cover NYC's living expenses with the salary.
    Commuting requires a car, or train. Train is expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great company who cares about nurturing it's intern and focusing on development and growth. Plenty of opportunities to use your abilities to impress management and satisfy clients. Overall, wonderful experience and best internship I've ever had!

    Cons

    Location of the headquarters is very deep in long island. Not bad if you don't mind the commute.

    Advice to Management

    Great internship program! I loved my summer with NPD; however, HR needs to be more structured when it comes to hiring interns. We are a highly prized commodity in the job market and it is unfair to us to be in the dark as far as the progress of our employment for so long.

    I have been working at NPD as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a great culture. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful, which is especially nice if you have relocated. People go out of their way to help you, and to make sure you understand something fully. Great place to work.

    Cons

    The salary for an intern is pretty good, but they do not offer any housing stipends or additional benefits. They also do not help much with locating a good place to live, which can be difficult in NY.However, I have heard they have good relocation packages for employees. Furthermore, the salaries tend to be lower, which is unfortunate, because I feel they loose a lot of good talent because of that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Everyone has an open door policy, and are more than willing to spend one on one time with employees, no matter where you are on the hierarchy.

    Trustworthy Company values employees, internal candidates come first, lot's of room to grow and it is encouraged by Senior Staff.

    Too many long term employees afraid of change. It becomes necessary to clean house to keep things fresh.

    One of the TOP places I ever worked, thank you for the opportunity.
