I have been working at Kantar Media North America full-time (More than a year)
Can be a decent name on a resume that is recognizable when interviewing with media or research agencies. 19 days PTO, MLK and President's day are both considered paid holidays.
Financially, the company is not doing so well. Many of the companies that make up Kantar Media are not profitable and that brings down those who do make a profit as well. Hiring freezes, very mediocre raises (which almost weren't given at all in 2014), and the HR shared services is an absolute nightmare, which I learned the hard way several times when preparing for, during, and after my maternity leave - a time when I really did not need additional stress, especially from work. Departments have been "streamlined" or "restructured:, which means that everyone in that department gets laid off and they perform a mass new hire in the Chicago suburbs to create a new department that serves all Kantar locations. Three different departments have been "restructured" in the last 18 months, so who knows which department is next.
Advice to Management
Rethink which departments you are "streamlining". Its not always worth the financial savings to ruin the employee experience and to instill an atmosphere of layoffs and fear across the board.
