Losing sight of what's important
SVP Consulting (Current Employee) – Los Angeles – September 26, 2015
I've been at GfK for six years, and I have seen it become increasingly bureaucratic, self absorbed, and detached from what is really important: delivering quality research to clients.
GfK has lots of bright people, but work/life balance has become non-existent and getting worse.
GfK pays below what other giant research companies pay. It used to be that lower pay came with more stability and job security, but that's gone too.
Despite subpar pay, GfK offers generous benefits.
Smart people; generous benefits
Overworked, bureaucratic. spend more time pushing paper and less time doing analysis for clients; pay is so-so
