Not that Bad, But Focus on Local Talent Please

I worked at Millward Brown

Pros

Enlightened employer, with good welfare and culture on training and work improvement practices.

Cons

Terrible working hours and pay not commensurate. Local talent do not seem to be favoured in comparison.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Should take stock and up the pay and handling of local talent to build for the future. You can't keep relying on your expats to helm the ship in the future.

    Pros

    Wonderful employees. The people are what help you get by each day and the office out of office activities are fun and build office teams. The pay and benefits are decent and similar to the industry.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. So often the company would sell studies to clients already in the red before even launching. It's impossible to run a business when pretty much every study is losing money. The past two years have been the worst. Office morale dropping, a lot of red on the financials shown during meetings, and no raises in past 3 years. I don't understand how the CEO still has her job when three rounds of layoffs have happened on her watch. Company is too top heavy-more VPs in an office than lower-level employees (almost 2 to 1). In 2010, the company gave ipads to each employee...then 10 months later, lay-offs came. The bottom doesn't fall out that quickly...

    Company is more reactionary than forward thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time for a new CEO-3 layoffs under her watch, while she travels the world doing who knows what. The company culture is that of fun and a family, but the lack of raises and poor work life balance, is causing that culture to fall off.

    Pros

    great stepping stone for future jobs
    place looks cool
    great location
    nice co-workers - most of them
    good experience

    Cons

    up until a few years ago it was a great co to work for, with great opportunities until it slowly started to deteriorate and great people started to be pushed out the door
    "just get it done!" mentality
    expectations set too high without any recognition for the right people
    not interested in retention issues - no job security
    understaffed
    low morale, high turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to value your employees even though they are not in upper management
