    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

    I worked at TNS Sofres full-time (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

    was not being paid for overtime initially but then got paid for overtime after a few days of employment.

    I worked at TNS Sofres full-time (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.

    Pros

    Positive and supporting environment, dedicated managers, respectful, good work-life balance, very enriching and rewarding

    As an intern, none really.

    I have been working at TNS Sofres full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Très très peu, les locaux sont loin de transport en commun, le salaire est correct sans plus, mais aller au travail en reculant est assez pesant sur le moral.

    Cons

    Travail peu epanouissant
    On a pas le temps de s'approprier les études, on acquiert pas d'expertise vu que tout est cloisonné
    J'aurais dû me méfier, une entreprise qui va bien ne propose pas des CDI à tout va. Je cherche comme tous mes collègues à partir.

    Advice to Management

    Communiquer sur la mauvaise santé et le retard technologique de l'institut pour motiver les troupes.
    Gagner des contrat, parce que rien faire c'est pas épanouissant
    Intégrer les nouveaux

    I worked at TNS Sofres (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Les stages chez TNS Sofres sont formateurs, il y a une très bonne équipe de stagiaire et l'entreprise dispose d'un suivi RH de qualité

    Cons

    Le niveau de responsabilité est variable selon les équipes ainsi que le niveau des missions. Le salaire est peut-etre un peu bas par rapport à d'autres métiers en Marketing.

    Pros

    Poste intéressant, diversifié, et riche

    Cons

    Autonomie très réduite et pas de moyens financiers

    Advice to Management

    La gestion permanente de l'attrition est épuisante et mène dans le mur
