    I worked at TNS Sofres

    Pros

    Best company to work for; great supervisor and interesting and varied work. Great pay and conditions and opportunity to work in England,

    Cons

    Out in all weathers, can be quite challenging especially when the CAPI machine breaks down in heavy rain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing because you are very understanding and encouraging on the job

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at TNS Sofres full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary is below the market rate. There's a fair bit of variety and quite a lot of employees so the social side of things can be fun if you have the time

    Cons

    The company is hierarchical and political and you'll only progress as far and be as visible as your manager allows

    Advice to Management

    Review salary of more junior employees, there are too many directors that don't add much and place greater emphasis on the junior staff

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at TNS Sofres full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A large company with a lot of resource, scope to learn different research methodologies, big budget international projects, lots of scope for managing projects and people. Very process-driven.

    Cons

    You are made to feel like an expendable resource, not consulted on which projects you will work on but swapped around depending on need. Over-time is expected, unpaid and unthanked, but without it you won't progress. Extra hours are not billed to the client so profits are buoyed up by you sacrificing your spare time. The shareholders are so grateful! Salaries are very low, even higher up, and bonuses are... non-existent (50 Euros last year).

    Advice to Management

    Stop exploiting your staff and interns, bill correctly, and accept that you are deeply in the red.
