    Great community, shame about lack of progression and low pay..

    Account Director (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsWorldpanel has a fantastic product and great track record at delivering for their clients. this makes it a really positive place to be, and you feel as though the heritage and history of the company really makes it stand out as a clear leader. The training programme is really well organised and general atmosphere and people really collaborative.

    ConsBecause of the history and structure, it can feel a bit like a production line, with more emphasis on the system and senior management, less on the actual workers and people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't rest on your laurels. Worldpanel has a fantastic product, service levels and group of talented employees but you need to keep looking ahead to keep ahead of competition.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    Great people rubbish pay

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people
    Greats team working environment.
    Free fruit everyday
    Great social events

    ConsPay is rubbish
    Promotions are delayed and when they happen the increase is insulting.
    When you unfairly blamed managment don't stand up to defend you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStand up for your staff rather than worrying about how you will look for doing so.

    Pay your staff what they are worth based of their ability. Rather than worrying about others
    Moaning they should be paid the same when they don't deliver what is asked of them.
