    I worked at TNS Global full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are many bright people and lots of cutting-edge ideas and thinking

    Cons

    Success and advancement seem to reward the status quo and those that "play the game" rather than bright "change agents."

    Advice to Management

    Reward and advance more with regard to "bottom line" production, and less on seniority/popularity, and those that can "check a box" with regard to trendy, superficial feel-good criteria.
