Well paid drudgery
Operations Associate (Former Employee) –  Reston, VADecember 11, 2017
Working here is like going into an 8 hour coma. Overall, it's an alright place to work though. The pay is decent considering what the work involves. The people there are a mixed bag. Management is about average.
Pros
Pay is good for a new grad. Happy hours were fun
Cons
Really boring work, office politics

Toxic work environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 26, 2017
Worst job experience ever. Toxic senior management who enjoyed belittling you in meetings and in front of other people. Just did not treat people well at all.

Cool place but couldn't advance
Data Entry (Former Employee) –  Port Washington, NYOctober 6, 2017
Wasn't making enough money in starting role. Could not advance without more diverse work experience. Overall not a bad place to work. It was a clean building with friendly people and competent management.

Not able to give cutrent review
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Port Washington, NYOctober 3, 2017
I worked here a really long time ago so there is no possible way for me to be able to give a relevant review. This is not a good fit for anyone commuting from outside of long island.

No Direction
Manager (Former Employee) –  Rosemont, ILSeptember 22, 2017
Although the company culture was good, management has no clear direction in growing the company. Help is hard to find, since most people are working from home or different offices. Executives keep employees in the dark about the financial situation of the company, and they've had a few layoffs in the past few years.
Pros
Relaxed culture
Cons
Layoffs. Management is very opaque.

Corporate Business Development, Summer Associate (Former Employee) –  Port Washington, NYAugust 30, 2017
I was mostly blown away by the quality of the people at NPD: intelligent, helpful, accommodating and more. Everyone is willing to help and excited about their work prospects and treated even the interns with respect.

Laid back workplace but not much room for advancement
Operations Associate (Former Employee) –  Port Washington, NYJune 16, 2017
NPD is a leading Market Research firm. As an operations associate my work became repetitive and tedious. The work life balance was great, however the ceiling was very low.

Project Specialist (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCJune 12, 2017
I worked for The NPD Group for over 6 years. The people I worked with were outstanding. Work/life balance is the best I've seen. Changes in the direction of the company were sometimes unclear.

Great working enviornment
Manager (Former Employee) –  Port Washington, NYApril 26, 2017
NPD was a growing company with a warm family feel to it.

Plenty of opportunity to move up or around depending on interests.

I was fortunate enough to make friendships there to last a lifetime.

A real team environment making large projects and tasks manageable and enjoyable.

A step in the right direction
Account Specialist (Former Employee) –  Rosemont, ILDecember 14, 2016
NPD has a great workplace culture with intelligent, hardworking, and collaborative teammates and managers. They are one of the most respected industry market research firms. Many of the talented analysts hop into the firm after graduation and then eventually move on to client side or MBA for further career advancement. Leadership is respectful, responsible, and cares about employee satisfaction.
Pros
Bagel Fridays. Potlucks. Lots of professional training for selling and presenting.
Cons
Pay is median for the industry.

Sr.VMware Administrator (Current Employee) –  Port Washington, NYOctober 17, 2016
Npd group is a great place with lots of experienced and friendly colleagues. It is a great platform for me to showcase my skills and got to learn a lot from more experienced co-workers. My role is Senior VMware Administrator and got a skilled and fun loving team to work with. Not just my team members, even members from different infrastructure are equally experienced and friendly.

Associate Project Director for Housewares (Former Employee) –  Port Washington, NYNovember 20, 2014
With the position I obtained at the NPD Group I was able to work remotely allowing me to be a mother as well as a career woman. The managers were wonderful as were my co workers. The work on a daily basis was quite tedious yet enjoyable.

Data Quality Associate (Former Employee) –  Reston, VAFebruary 11, 2014
The corporate offices are in Port Washington. These offices deal with data operations. The only movement is through management. Have to move for any lateral movement in other areas. Doing lots of trainings does not help.
Pros
Flexible Hours
Cons
Lack of good compensation
