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

    Pros

    1. Many great talented people, who would support you no matter what problems you're facing with.
    2. Fast learning curve you will get - I really suggest working with this company if you're eager to learn and work in a market research.
    3. Management skills from high workloads you have
    4. Workplace environment - it's the place supporting learning culture and useful brainstorming meetings.

    Cons

    1. Work-life balance - the company supports flex hours but in fact, this means nothing in reality.
    2. Management - all they care is only money and sales target. People element seems to be lowest priority.
    3. HR - the real bad things in this company: can't recruit more, can't retain the existing one.
    3.1 In addition to the above, we have been lost 5-6 talented senior people within a quarter but the only thing the company did is recruiting juniors for only 2-3 people.

    Advice to Management

    1. Company - be people-oriented
    2. Finance - think about it in reality, not just follow the rules, where it's not applicable with clients.
