    I worked at IMRB as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great responsibility as an intern.
    Treatment like a valuable member of the team.
    My team manager was a very humble and learned guy. And the immediate seniors were even better.

    Cons

    None. Everything went well with my internship.

    Maybe long hours for full time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I guess salaries of mid level and senior level employees need revision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management can re evaluate the salary of senior manager or especially Team Leaders(Insights Manager) so that they are more receptive to staying back rather than going to other companies who take them away with lucrative offers

    Pros

    It was a great experience to intern with IMRB. They totally understand the whole concept of team work. The higher management is very encouraging and motivating. You get opportunities to deal with the clients real soon. New independent ideas are appreciated.

    Cons

    The location of the Delhi office is really bad. I was just an intern and I was paid well enough, so can't comment on the the cons of salaries and benefits, or promotions for that matter.
