    I worked at NPD full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of development and growth 15 years ago. Lots of internal training offered, approachable managers, encouragement to be empowered and move around the company.

    Cons

    Cant get themselves in current times, to much change without fully thinking things through. Lots of guess work for senior level. Change is great but need to think it through first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance used to be much better for employees. Need a better handle on senior management and how they handle letting people go. I was let go on false reasons after being promoted, receiving above company average increases, after above average reviews. So why not offer me to move to different division or give me time to prepare, after 15+ years i deserve better.
