    I worked at GfK full-time

    Pros

    It used to be a great place to work until a private equity firm made a significant investment in the company and took it private.

    Cons

    The company is in complete disarray at the moment. It is making too many cuts and letting too many talented people go. The decision to sell off four profitable business units to Ipsos was a blunder of epic proportions.
